30 for 30 remix: day twenty three

Here’s the situation: my face gets so dang dry in the winter.  And you know as much as I do, that it doesn’t matter what you wear when your skin has dandruff.  In a dramatic act of desperation, I have asked my facebook friends to give me their tips for dry skin, and now I’m asking you! Help! What’s a girl gotta do from rehashing terrible high school flashbacks? Like the time I missed my school dance because I used Proactiv (which is not made for dry skin), and I turned into some kind of snake shedding it’s layers.

Side note: I ended up going to Red Lobster that night instead, bumped into my crush and had to literally hide my face. How embarrassing.

So ladies, give me your secrets.

    I have the same problem in the winter. I have tried quite a few things and I hate to say it but sometimes I use the same moisturizer that I put on my body, I put on my face I just use a very tiny amount. But right now, I'm using the Burt's Bee's Nourishing Milk and Honey Body Lotion. It's quite liquidy so it doesn't feel heavy on your face after you have it on. Or I use the Proactiv Oil Free Moisturizer. Have you tried the Aveeno line. My mom swears by it.
    BTW-lovin' the outfit today!

    I have uber dry skin too, and I was also going to suggest whatever body lotion you use, thinking I was the only person that would dare do this haha. I've tried a lot of the expensive face lotions and seriously, body lotion is the way to go! I sometimes use the body shops body butter or vaseline extra moisture, or any other ultra moisturizing product. Oh oh I almost forgot! I've started using Almond oil as well sometimes, but I find that's a bit much on it's own so have mixed it in with face lotions in the past and it's a winner as well! So….I wish you luck!

    I got nothin for you in the way of moisturizing, except maybe try a humidifier or boiling tea kettle or something, but I will say that those tights are the perfect shade of eggplant purple that I have been searching for all winter. Lucky.
