Dry Skin - in general / combating the effects of winter
I get this really uncomfortable, dry skin that peels maybe once a month. The dryness lasts about 3-4 days. Currently, I am using Retin-a-micro, and a topical acne thing. Any advice on how to make it go away for good, or just go away sooner? :boxer:
I have dry skin but not as dry as yours I guess.
I only tends to have flakiness on my nose and feel tight around my cheeks.
Lancome Hydra Zen (normal to dry skin) is my all time favorite moisturizer, goes on perfectly smooth, fast absorbing and leaves my skin amazingly silky and soft that I can't stop touching my face :P
or during the days you feel super dry, do some moisturizing masks at home. there is this Olay hydrating mask (sheet mask), very nice and inexpensive. or the Biotherm one. you can also search for some cream masks. I'm currently using Origins Drink Up, really nothing special, though.
serums would help, too. you may wanna try Chanel Hydra Max serum.
Please find a moisturizer with high sun protection, because if you are using acne medication like retinA, which contains a high level of vitamin A (retinol), this product might stain your skin permanently if its around excessive sunlight. Anyway, is always good reccomended to use a moisturizer with sun protection.

does anyone know a good eye cream that moisturizes? lately my skin around my eyes has been dry and flakey, veryyyy aggrivating. i wake up and its like this, and sometimes at the end of the day. maybe its just the weather because it didnt do this a month ago or so. anyway....as inexpensive as possible please.
right now i just use oil of olay complete, which ive used for years. but i guess its not doing the job with whatever is going on with my skin now. (at least in the eye area)
I know this sounds weird, but Vaseline works wonders for dry, crepey eyes. I'll put a little bit of Vaseline around my eyes before I go to bed, and I wake up with soft, smooth skin. I use it more of a treatment (once a week) than an every night thing.
I also like DHC's concentrated eye cream. It has olive oil and is nice for dry skin around the eyes.
