Hey ladies!!

I need your help. I really need to find something for my extremely dry skin. I use lots of acne products so they dry my skin out like crazy. It gets all flaky and gross, sumone told me it is dehydrated. They recommended ATOPALM cream, but I don't know,,, has anyone tried it? or do you have any others?

Help!!! thanx a bunch!

You may want to try a couple of drops of oil, perhaps jojoba,avocado, camellia or rosehipseed on your face right after you cleanse and your face is still wet. The oil should sink right in then you can use a moisturiser, I think the avocado oil is good for very dry skin but since they are not expensive you could try a few and see which one works for you. I used to have dry flakes on my face but after using this method I have no problems.
Hope this helps.

Beauty Professional: The Basic Routine of Skin Care for Dry Skin

If you are among those people who have dry skin, you will be anxious to find out ways to keep the skin hydrated for as long a time as possible. The lack of moisture makes the skin care for dry skin a great challenge. Women who have dry skin cannot wear make-up the way they would like to, as this would further sap the moisture from the skin. However, with a little care and a lot of patience dry skin too can be maintained as beautiful and supple as any other type.


The 1-2-3 Method of Skin Care For Dry Skin


Cleanse and exfoliate the skin - the first step in any skin care regime is to clean the skin first. Since the dry skin will have a lot of dead cell accumulation on its surface, side by side with cleansing, it will require exfoliation. Only after the dead skin cells are removed, that any cream make-up can be applied.

Moisturize the skin -dry skin always lacks in moisture, and thereby crinkling the skin. In order to keep the skin smooth, its skin care dictates to apply a lot of moisturizer. You will observe that in a few hours or so, the moisturizer tends to disappear and your skin becomes dry again. To prevent this, you may like to use a little glycerin; just a few drops can make a huge difference in the locking in of moisture.

Nourishing the skin - the dry skin is always starving. This is why its skin care will have to include a good amount of rich nourishing night cream which will restore its health and keep it nourished. This is best applied at night because at night, the skin is free from any dust and other pollution particles, and it can absorb sufficient nutrition.

Hi sun_grl43,
i hope you don't mind me offering with some advice, (I'm brand new to this board as off today!)
I agree with Ivy, i find that some oil gently rubbed into the skin with the finger tips helps quite alot and can also take any soreness out of it. This next idea may sound a little nuts but i also find rubbing the flesh of an avocado can really help as it contains vitamin E (i lock myself in the bath room when i do this!
)

If you have dry skin on your body a milk bath does wonders. i tend to use powered goats milk.

Hope this Helps x

The avocado does not sound crazy at all. Lush has mashed avocado in one of their face masks so putting straight avocado on the skin sounds like a good idea. I find that when my skin is very dry the avocado oil is the best one to use and I also rub it into my hands at night.

Hi There!

Beauty Society has a cleanser called Set Me Free which is a pore clearing cleanser, but does not dry out your skin. They also have two great moisturizers. The first one is Anytime Anywhere - This is a corrective moisturizer that balances all skin types. The next one is called Keep it Lite, this one gives your face plenty of hydration without leaving your face oily feeling.

Hope this is helpfull!

Hi

I have really dry face and hands.
Everything I've bought only works temporarly and they are full of chemicals. For me just an oil don't work well enough. I don't know why but my skin keeps asking for more. A couple of years ago I learnt to make a very easy skin salve. It's great for dry skin and eczema.

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons Bees wax
0,5 cup of olive oil or jojoba oil

Simple melt the wax, add the oil, pour it in a jar and let is stiffen.

It is easy to make and you can keep it for a whole year without it going bad.

You can read more about it on my site but apparently I can not put a link here since I just joined. Well anyway, it works very well and the salve is well worth the time.

Cheers
Carolin

You can try the new Clinique moister surge. I used it when I had really dry skin. You should always remember to drink water to keep your body and skin hydrated.

Acne creams is design to dry out the pimples..as well as your skin. Try applying a vasoline base lotion. It works well in concealing the mositure in your skin.

I've never heard of that cream. I really like Clinique's Moisture Boost. It goes on your skin and sinks right in and doesn't leave it feeling oily. You may be over medicating your skin. I know that you want to dry it out because of the acne. But you might actually be overdrying it. Lay back on the drying cream.

What products are you using to treat your acne.
A few years ago I was using benzoil peroxide. The results were great, however it dried my skin out alot as well. If i used less than recomended skin wasnt so dry, but also acne would return. Now I tend to use products that contain salicillic acid.

They work quite well to prevent acne. Try a "soapless soap" that has salicilic acid, or a facial cleanser.

By the way can we mention products on here? I dont want to get booted for recomending one, but i know of a few good ones

Why not use a proper skin care product designed for dry skin? Although that olive oil thing does sound like a good salad dressing; I might give it a try.

Well, the super dry skin is probably due to the "lots of acne products" - sounds like a reaction. You need to pair it down to a very gentle cleanser and acne solution. Try obagi clenziderm. best prices are on skinrx.com and ******************
