use a very gentle scrub to remove the dead skin and moisturize! I have oily skin so I don't really know a good one for dry skin, but I know nic from "pixiwoo" loves the embryolisse moisturizer. Just look for a moisturizer that is made for dry skin.

Also you can use a thicker cream in the night and a lighter one that is going to sink into your skin faster in the morning, right before you do your makeup. :)

But remember to exfoliate ;)

also make sure you drink a lot of water, maybe your skin is dehydrated?

 

hope that helps ^-^

I used to get dry skin on my cheeks and between my eyebrows.  Drinking more water cleared it up completely!

I LOVE Pixiwoo!

And yeah exfoliation, hot cloth cleansing can help (with a muslin cloth) in addition to scrubs.
Also you can try chemical exfoliants like AHA products which help to shed top layers of the skin.
I use a clarisonic, but they are expensive! Worth it if you can afford it though. I asked for mine for my birthday.

Have you tried a Moisture face mask such as Origins overnight drink up intensive mask?
Basically a super moisturising overnight treatment.

Have you tried a homemade sugar scrub? Mix together one part olive oil and two parts white sugar - it works like a treat on the rest of your body too! Putting on moisturiser after you've rinsed it off keeps the skin nice as well :)

I use vaseline in the evening. Take it off before going to bed. Works very good.

Oh, I forgot!  A weekly egg-white face mask.  It sounds disgusting but it is honestly the best thing ever.  Your face will feel all tight and when you wash it off after 10-15 minutes your skin will feel amazing.  Trust me.

I get really bad dry patches on my forehead. I just use an exfoliating cleanser and then I use a thick night cream in the morning. I find that it works a lot better than the thinner moisturizers. It also keeps my face moisturizer the entire day; instead of just a couple hours.

I absolutely agree with the egg-whites! Keep the egg yolk and try alternating these two masks... just make sure you leave the egg on until it dries on your skin (and then make sure you don't talk, otherwise it'll crack) :) 15-20 minutes should be plenty of time, then wash it off with cold water.

 

I read somewhere that dabbing milk on your dry patches with a cotton ball works very well, too, but I don't believe I tried it myself.

 

Hope you get rid of the dryness very soon, it gets really really irritating..

i agree with everyone else on the exfoliating.  in addition to staying hydrated try a heavier moisturizer like eucerin.  if it's too heavy for you to go out in only use it at home, then try cetaphil during the day
