    My face skin is sooo dry! I've tried moisturisers, butter cream, facial scrub - nothing's helped! So i persuaded my mum to get my Clinique thingy. There's that facial soap kind of thing, tonic and a moisturiser. Cos u know how they say clinique is sooo good. And i've tried it before, but just the tonic - it really is great! But even the whole combination (for my type of skin!) doesn't help. The worst is when i try apply foundation - u can see white bits, like flakes in my forehead and nose. So i try to avoid applying it there It's just so gross! Any advice? Please? :o:

    Nutrogena Nourishing Body Emulsion is pretty good for dry skin, as its supposed to provide immediate relief and its not to sticky or tacky either.

    If you are having major problems it might be worth going to see your GP though as they will be able to sort you out with slightly stronger creams for dermatological problems.

    My brother has eczema and gets this massive tub of moisturising cream from the chemist. I think he has it on prescription but I'm sure you can get similar ones that aren't. I sometimes get dry skin on my nose and forehead so I use that and it works wonders. It's not fancy-looking and it isn't scented nicely but it works. So I'd suggest just asking at a pharmacy or something, or your GP like someone else said. I also like plain old E45 cream.

    Do you use soap? I can sometimes get dry skin on my cheeks/around my nose and the best thing I find for it is to buy either a sensitive soap, or some Simple facial cleansing foam (which I use). Then I have Simple light moisturiser for the daytime (tis a really good base for make up) and then a really quite rich fcuk moisturiser to slap on after a shower/bath. Oh and I use a Simple moisturising face mask once a week.
