Hello everyone,

Sorry its been a while since i have posted i have been very busy this week with sports and homework. But thats not the poing of this post so anyways.

I really need you help. This winter my skin is so dry. Last year my skin was fine during winter, but this year my skin is SO dry. I really dont know why i am using a good moisturizer and i just cant figure it out. Right next to the corner of my lips i have these dry patches, they are fine when i leave for  school but by the time i get half way through my school day it starts flaking and it looks horrible.

So if you guys have any ideas why this is happening to me bescides the dry winter air, or any ideas for a really great moisturizer they would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks !

I'd drink tons and tons of water, use a cream cleasner, moisturize multiple times, and you could gently exfoliate when it is flakey.  Another thing you could do is put a humidifier in your room to help with the dry air.

I love coconut oil for dry skin patches. Plus if any gets in your mouth it tastes yummy. :]

Eucerin Aquaphor is really good for dry/chapped skin. Are you drinking enough water? You need to be hydrating inside as well as the outside of your skin.

It could be a form of eczema.  Maybe see your doctor first to see if that's what it is, and if so you could get a prescription for it.  I have dry skin too, and I've found the Vaseline's Deep Moisture & Rite Aid's Vit E cream both work to smooth those patches.  I get them also, and I have dry skin too, esp. in the winter and esp. now that I'm in my late 40's.  I've read even dry skin needs exfoliation, otherwise the moisturizer won't penetrate.  I can get dry patches that make applying certain formulas of foundations almost impossible. Also, if you can, use a humidfier at home.  At least you can get more moisture in the air, as I know personally dry air makes my skin feel tight.  Since I use the heater in the winter, I have to use the humifier also to keep moisture around.
