Best products to get rid of 'dryish' skin on the face? Watch

    Preferably for a male. I don't have really dry skin, just arises in places :/

    Basically, can you suggest a good facial rub? Soap is good but not very good when just applying with hands.

    Can't you just moisturise every night before you go to bed? 'Vanishing Cream' moisturiser from Lush has made my once-dry skin so, so soft!

    Try and get an exfoliator if you can. I use one by Boots which has witchhazel in it.

    Not soap!!

    Exfoliating could just make it worse.

    Eucerin products are amazing! Try them - definitely worth the price :/

    Exofiliating (rubbing off dead skin with a face wash or brush) will clear out the pores allowing it to absorb any moisturiser you put on afterwards. As for moisturiser I wholeheartedly recommend Nivea- cheap, but probably the best I've ever used, doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy, gets rid of all the dryness and makes your skin look glowing.

    Yes Nivea cream is awesome, the one that you can use on your body, face and hands? It's not greasy and it doesn't feel heavy or smell of anything really!

    St Ives is a really good exfoliant, and Aqueous Cream (buy over the counter at a pharmacy) is a great moisturizer.
