Hi
I have very dry skin and use No7 Advanced Hydration moisturiser which is quite good on my skin but then when I apply foundation and powder my skin just flakes around my chin, nose and forehead.

It's so annoying nothing seems to work. Please help!! x

Hi,

I can't comment on the No7 product, I use Dermalogica Intensive Moisture as I have dry skin and this is nice but expensive.  Another good product is called Aveeno and if you look on their website you can request a free sample to try it out before purchasing (aveeno.co.uk) although any half decent skincare brand should provide samples for you to try.

Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside and do exfoliate.  Make sure that whatever brand of skincare you choose that you use a day cream with spf and a night cream, also a cream rather than a lotion may well be a better choice for you.  Regular facials will help too.

I hope that helps you.

Hi
Sounds like you actually have combination skin and your skin care regime needs to be addressed in particular exfolliation, as well as the correct products to use for hydration. Get that sorted and foundation will look great, oh and you need to look at the type of foundaion you are using too.

I have this same problem with the skin around my nose and cannot wear foundation for this reason.

I have  asked my doctor and nothing they have recommended works, moisturiser, vitamen e etc

It's so frustrating!

I would try the tips already mentioned but also be aware that there are a few skin conditions that can cause this pattern of visible flakes, but are actually caused by excess sebum production!  If you are treating your skin for 'dryness' and it is not improving try visiting a good beauty salon for a consultation....if you can find one that offers Dermalogica face mapping they are generally very good at spotting these things.

Yes Lisa thats is basically what I am saying , some people use products for dry skin because they have flakyness but in reality its oily or combination skin they have and need products for hydration of oily skins etc. and also exfollioation is essential. The "dry patches" are actually dead skin cells sticking to the surface of the skin by the oils and sebum.
hope this helps girls

Sorry, I should have been clearer, but I did not mean combination skin.  There are a few types of dermatitis that are caused by excess sebum production, including seborrheic dermatitis.

If it was pink custard, I would just eat it all.

Steer clear of harsh chemicals anything with large amounts of alcohol in as this dries your skin clinique are renowned for full of alcohol products so stay well clear of them. I would advise seeking a dermatologist if its really bothering you, its hard for us to diagnose what your problem is without meeting you.
