    Does anyone else have this problem during the winter months?

    After blowing my nose, the skin around the bottom half of my face gets really dry and flaky. It seems to be due to the tissue being rubbed against my face throughout the day.

    Any suggestions for how to help this problem?
    Are there any miracle tissues which are kind to skin??

    Hiya,

    Yes I think it's a really common problem. I use balm tissues (I'm not sure if it makes any difference!). I put vaseline on my lips and between my nose and top lip, I gently exfoliate regularly and I regularly apply a moisturiser for sensitive skin.

    Thanks for the advice!
    I do exfoliate and moisturise, just sometimes when the weather is bad, I realise I need to do more
    I will get some balm tissues
