Dry skin issues?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm sorta new to the whole makeup and skincare stuff.  Recently, I started trying to use makeup and foundation for the first time, but my skin was so dry, the foundation flaked and cracked within a couple hours. I get stress acne and the driest parts of my face are my nose and forehead with dead skin flaking off the sides of my nose most. I have a face wash that i use once a week and a Youth for the people skin moisturizer that i've been using every 2-3 days, but i'm not noticing any changes. Any advice?

Limit your time in the shower or bath to 5 or 10 minutes.
Use warm rather than hot water.
Wash with a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser.
Apply enough cleanser to remove dirt and oil, but avoid using so much that you see a thick lather.

Sounds like you might need a good scrub to manually remove the deadskin. I have similar skin and use Rodan and fields reverse and redefine am and pm cream and active hydration serum for this reason. My skin is so much smoother

Having dealt with inflammation and dry skin my whole adult life, I know how hard it is to find products that don't cause breakouts and at the same time keep your skin nourished and hydrated. I have used every cream and serum there is over the counter but the product that worked wonders for my skin turned out to be shea butter. I've tried many brands, and the better quality one is Shea Butter Unrefined Ivory-White. It doesn't leave your skin sticky and isn't comedogenic. My holy grail!

    • I love a big ass bun on the top of my head. Sometimes I put a kids flower crown around it. For fancy things, I do a lower, respectable bun type of look. I'm black with kinky waist length (when stretched. Shrinks to shoulder length) hair. I spend like 5 minutes on a daily look. Wash day takes about 4 hours between actual washing, then setting my hair in some way. I usually do two strand twists for a twist out, then I just style that in whatever way.
    • Mitvana Products are the best natural skin care products available in the market for the lowest price and good quality. All mitvana products are made with naturally available herbs, chemical free and also free from artificial colors.  
    • There is this book written by Vasudha Rai - Glow that talks about everything from products to diet to home remedies on how to take care of skin and get glowing skin.  
    • Very easy to use and no need to use conditioner or any other product to    Bluestacks Lucky Patcher Kodi   wash your hair (it also detangles hair). And the bonus is that it gives volume to thin hair.
    • I want to share useful information in my opinion. Finally, in Tokyo, legalized gambling in casinos and now tokyo casinos are helping the country's economy. Also, in order to alleviate the fear of gambling addiction, a law was introduced obliging to pay 53$ per entry. I wonder what this will all lead, but if you look at it in the face of it, then this raises the country's economy to a new level, and this can be done in many countries in which they are ready to take the same measures.
