The roller coaster weather in NYC has destroyed my face! It feels dry and flaky. It's like a lumberjack's hands. I think I might have over-exfoliated (Goldfaden MD Doctor's Scrub), but when I do that, my skin isn't raw, the pores get irritated and puff up. I usually have normal skin. I am scared of over-moisturizing as I get milia. I've been using Boscia clarifying cleanser and Body Shop Vitamin E moisturizer for the last few days, but it's not helping. Any advice on what to use? Harsh or gentle exfoliator? Should I do a coconut oil mask?
Hey! I usually keep a big economy sized bottle of drugstore hand cream because I am a fiend when it comes to lotion and I use it all the time. But my mom has fragrance sensitivities and it's been bugging her. Anyone know of a LIGHTLY scented or fragrance-free lotion/hand cream? Thanks!
My routine consists of using: This is after I wash my face Day: Bobbi Brown hydrating face cream Bobbi Brown hydrating eye cream Night: Ren Serum Ren Day face cream (Someone at sephora recommended I do that!) PTR eye serum (the red one) Bobbi Brown hydrating eye cream Since I have very dry and sensitive skin. I feel like I need a heavier day cream, as I am sitting here, typing this. I feel like my face becoming drier. Would anyone recommend a good day cream, thats both hydrating and kind of gives a small lifting boost.
I am now 46, and I've noticed that my hands and feet get very, very dry. I'm really picky about lotions, but I came across this brand, and I love it. For my feet, I first use a diamond foot file and then use the L'Occitane foot cream. And I don't go anywhere without their hand cream. So creamy and smooth. http://www.sephora.com/hand-creams-P307907?skuId=6 40979 http://www.sephora.com/shea-butter-foot-cream-P396 79?skuId=604223
Okay so I'll give you guys the run down on my never ending skin problem. I have combination skin to start off with but the dryness is more dominate. I used to think it was the foundation that was the problem but after using tons of different brands and types, I consistently have the same problem. My skin naturally feels extremely dry, so I exfoliate to remove the dead skin cells. I always moisturize directly after. When I wake up my skin is back to feeling dry and gross so I wash my face again in the morning and moisturize directly after. While I let the moisturizer set in, I do my eye makeup. When it comes time to do my face makeup, once my foundation hits my nose (and most recently my forehead), my skin immediately flakes up. No matter how much moisturizer, or if I had just exfoliated. I would love to just put foundation on like a normal thing without worrying but it has always been an issue. Whenever I see people put concealer around their nose I cringe, because if I ever attempted that, my skin would flake up and freak out. It's especially difficult because my nose area is fairly red and I can only put the tiniest (I mean TINIEST) amount of foundation their to minimalize the dryness. Does anyone have some type of product to smooth out my skin or some type of amazing exfoliator? I'm freaking out!
Because that's what I feel like I have! However, I've been doing a lot of research on skin care lately and read that's either really not common or even impossible. But my skin is absolutely dry, and you can absolutely see my pores. So I'm wondering what's the best way to treat it moving forward. Any one else in this same boat?
I have been using Cetaphil cleanser for over a month with no problem, however, now when I put it on my skin, it starts to burn. So I am thinking about switching to something more simpler. I was looking at the Koh De Gen cleansing water, or any suggestions you guys have!
My mom is always complaining about how dry her hands are, so I want to get her a hand cream or a set for Christmas. I really don't know a lot about hand creams because I don't really use them, so I need some help. What's your favorite? I want to get her something she doesn't have to apply seven times a day. The lotion she uses now she has to apply a lot and her hands are still really dry.
So it's that time of year when your skin needs tons of moisturizing but I need help! My eyelids are a bit dry and I need some sort of moisturizer or something for them that I can apply before putting my primer and shadow On. Any suggestions???
I have a clarisonic mia and I think it did not work well for me was because I was using a cleanser with too much acid. So I want to retry the clarisonic but with a different cleanser. Any suggestions? I have sensitive skin,problem area are the cheeks, I get like under the skin pimples or I just get random red spots. I have tried a boscia cleanser, clear days by philosophy, and ole henriksen cleanser, and they were too strong for me
Does anyone else have this problem? I can't seem to get lotion on my upper back area between my shoulder blades and right now my back is itching like crazy! Any suggestions on how I can apply? Sweet Hubby is not always around to help!
After trying to hold off on the body shop's 3 for $30 promotion, I am caving in. Does anyone have any recommendations for body butters (olive vs cocoa butter or something else. I'm bummed that the moroccan rose one sold out) or cleansers (have heard awesome things about the Vitamin E cleanser) or any other skin care sort of thing by TBS? I appreciate your help!! I posted the following as a comment too, but I'm going to paste it here as well so that everyone will see it without having to scroll through the thread) Wow thank you for all your suggestions!!! Just to clarify, I have pretty dry skin- constantly have to reapply the lotions (ESPECIALLY ON MY HANDS- have to reapply every single time I even so much as rinse them or the knuckles get all ashy and irritate the heck out of me) that I do have because nothing seems to be moisturizing enoug. My face is pretty normal/dry- not really very sensitive, but I prefer to stick to gentle products to keep it that way. I don't mind scented products- even prefer them so long as they aren't too synthetic- smelling.
ladies! HELP!! im having terrible issues from flaky burning dry skin. ive always been dry but this year its something awful. Can anyone recommend good products. I.E makeup, moisturizers, eye creams, setting sprays, ect. THANKS!
I don't know what this is, but I just have dry, flaky skin just at the creases of my nose that are particularly visible when I wear makeup (mineral or liquid) and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried good moisturizers, but it doesn't seem to work and it's very isolated to just the nose crease. I do have dry skin in general, but a good moisturizer usually takes care of any dryness EXCEPT here. It's not so much "patches" of skin, it looks maybe more like pores that have flaked off or something. It's hard to describe. Maybe I will take a picture. Does anybody know what the heck I'm talking about? lol If so, what skin regiment would you recommend?
So I've been using Purity Made Simple, and was hoping to buy some during the Black Friday sale, but since I wasn't able to, I'm not going to be repurchasing it for full price as I think I can find better products for that price (I did find Purity to be a bit drying). I would like any recommendations you have for a good cleanser, can be drugstore or mid range. I do not really have a lot of skin concerns; I have normal-dry (more dry than normal lol) skin, do not break out much, and do not wear full face makeup, ie foundation, unless it's for a special occasion. Still, if the cleanser was also able to remove makeup, that would be a plus. I have never really used cleansing oils, but the idea kind of puts me off for some reason. Same with facial bars (although that's more of a storage plus general dislike of soap/cleanser bars issue). Ideally, the cleanser should not be too expensive (I'm talking not much more than $20), work well, not be full of harsh chemicals that could irritate/dry out my skin. I did like the way Purity (omg the acronym spells PMS haha) felt on my skin so something similar in terms of that would be nice. Recommend away
Hi All, I've been using Neutrogena and Origins moisturizers on my face for day (Origins) and night (Neutrogena), but over the last several months I've been experiencing small patches of very very dry skin on different parts of my face (mostly around my smile lines and the sides of the bridge of my nose). I want to invest more money into a good face moisturizer and am looking for some advice on what to check out first. There are just so many different kinds out there that I find it overwhelming. I've also started to use oil cleansers on my face (Origins) instead of a frothy face wash with the hope that it would help not dry out my face. Any other tips on how to fix the dry spots? Thanks!
I am 16 years old, and I have acne, with ironically extremely dry flaky skin. When I first had acne, I had super oily skin, but all the medications and products recomended by my dermatologist damaged my skin's natural oils, and now when I put an oil blotter sheet on my face, no oil appears!! I already have oils,moisturizers,and face washes. Any good foundations that are not heavy nor long lasting?
Hi so I have very dry skin around my mouth that in the recent enter weather has spread to my chin and jawline and on the smile creases under my cheeks(but not on the sides of my nose). on my nose cheeks and forehead (basically everything above the bottom of my nose to the top of my forehead) I have lots if oil producing there. I don't really mind the oil because I found products that can control that, but I am really desperate to find a solution for my dry skin. It's so annoying! With oily skin you can just mattify and make makeup look good, but with dry skin everthing becomes flaky and often times I can't put makeup on at all because it'll just flake and look really bad, like face dandruff. I also have redness from acne and acne scars on my cheek and forehead area. The acnes actually not that bad anymore but at one point it was like the cystic acne army invaded and constantly set up huge pain full cystic acne forts on my face. It was a low time in my life the dryness around my mouth began after the acne died down, which was about a year ago. At first I thought it was my toothpaste so I switched to baking soda and listerine mouthwash(which works just as well as toothpaste, may I add) but still the dryness didn't go away. Even my lips are super duper dry and I go through an eos lipbalm every two months. when I was my face at night, i rub the dry spots and the dead skin just rolls off. Underneath is slightly better yet still slightly dry skin that I have to moisturize immediately after patting my skin dry. the only product that has worked so far is cetaphil in those large tubs. I get a good goop of it, rub it on my dry spots and repeat three or four times. And it's still dry so I get some Vaseline and put it on top to lock in the lotion. that is how I get through the night. I make sure I drink lots of water. Even if it wakes mE up in the middle of the night, that's a good thing because that's when the moisture wears off and I have to moisturize again. Even in the mornings, it's a little colder and dryer now so i still peel in the morning, so i rub off the dead skin in the morning again and moisturize with Argan oil. I just got argan oil and I don't see any changes yet but I'm going to keep wishing for the best. I also switched to lm's tinted moisturizer instead of bm's powder foundation and it's been somewhat better, but i still can't really put makeup there. Phew, so there you have it. My skin problem. Tl;dr: I have really bad flaky dry skin around my mouth lips and chin and idk what to do. I'm going to try the oil cleansing method tonight with a clarisonic( did I mention I just bought one?) i think its 90% due to eczyma and 10% that it could be something else. I should have mentioned that way earlier but as you can tell, I had a LOT of stuff to write. I couldn't remember everything. I'd be a terrible blogger haha. well, thank you SOO much for reading. If you have gotten this far, I applaud you. Thanks in advance!
Hi, I have dry skin and I've been using the Dermalogica Active Moist product for a couple years. It get's a bit pricey and I was wondering if anyone knows a good in-store or online place that sells them for cheaper price. Also, if anyone has suggestions for other products that has worked for them on VERY DRY SKIN, please recommend some. Thank you!
It's that time of year again, the season of dry skin. What's your favorite body lotion or oil? I recently came across the Organix Moroccan Argan Oil lotion and I love it. Not only does it smell good but it sinks in to the skin super fast so I don't feel like I'm greasy.
Hi everyone. I am looking for a face moisturizer that would work well on a woman who is in her 50's. It needs to be really hydrating, and work well on fairly dry skin. But, if it's possible, I am looking for recommendations for a product that absorbs into the skin really well, and doesn't feel "heavy" or "greasy" after putting it on. I think the skin type would probably be "combination" (and "mature skin") but definitely leaning more dry than oily.
I have always had dry skin and I knew what products worked. However after taking new acne medication my skin is drier. Luckily it's not peeling or flaking. It is just really dry and tight, and the area around my eyes are dry/tight as well. So I am looking for some new products, like moisturizers and Foundations. It doesn't have to be from Sephora either.
Nearing winter, I find that my current moisturizer isn't hydrating my skin enough, so by the time I put my foundation on, my skin is slightly flaky. Once I put my foundation on, the color catches on the flakes and really stand out. So to fix this, I have been using a tinted moisturizer with spf 15, however whilst the flakes don't show that much anymore, the coverage isn't enough to cover up the redness (usually either from the cold or break-outs.) Could somebody please recommend something that suits my problem. It would be muchly appreciated
So my dad complains about dry skin and how his Aveno lotion burns his skin after he shaves and takes a shower. Both my dad and brother have been trying out lotions and moisturizers from Walmart. what's the difference from product at Walmart and high end like at sephora? my dad and brother recently tried out Garner SPF 28 daily moisture but they say it bugs there skin still when they first put it on. And the Aveeno lotion burns. i thought I'd buy them something for Christmas. A face lotion or moisturizer. Any tips? My brother only gets oily in his T-zone. And my dad has rough dry skin.
