my skin DX

ultracurlzultracurlz Posts: 212Registered Users
So I've been having a bit of a skin problem and I was wondering if any of you could help XD

my skin- especially on my face- is really dry, but if I use lotion or anything like that I start to break out :C


what should I do DX

I try not to be to ruff and avoid putting anything to harsh on it but this year that just won't cut it.

help please!

    I have the same problem but i've been noticing a difference because i have been putting shea butter(raw) mixed with kiehl's creme de corps lotion(you don't have to mix shea butter with this exact lotion just mix with a lotion so the shea butter don't leave you looking like you just stepped out of a frying pan). I also try to do homemade face masks whenever i can so maybe once a week on wash day maybe :) hope this helps!!!!
    * also try oatmeal face mask works like heaven*

    Have you tried brands such as Cetaphil or Cerave? They are for sensitive skin and are VERY moisturizing. Yes, they are a bit expensive (not horrible), but you can find them at Walmart and stores like that. I think they both make lotions for the face. Just try it on a small spot on your face for a few days to see if you break out first.

    Good luck!

    I have really sensitive, dry skin. I would stay away from lotions because they contain oils that may irritate skin. Look for products made specifically for the face with noncomodigenic (spelt something like that- just means won't clog pores) or hypoallergenic on the label.
