Avatar m tn For the past 2 summers, summers only, I have dry skin patches on my face, eyebrows, beside nose, and above the corners of my mouth. Any ideas on what this could be?
Avatar f tn Okay, I posted for dry skin, and got asked for oily skin. 2 teaspoons of dry oats(oatmeal) grinded Splash of witch hazel to make a paste Once again, apply warm water first to face, then apply the paste as much as needed. You can leave it on for a few or rinse it right off with warm water. Do this once or twice every other day or every two days.
Avatar f tn My face is sooo dry. I already have really sensitive skin and now my face is just so dry and irritated. I've been putting lotion on it like crazy but it doesn't help. I don't use soap to wash my face. Please and suggestions or remedies would be awesome!!
1907326 tn?1323898389 I pick at my acne I still get acne on my forehead and neck/chin area Now my skin is dry and itchy around my eyes and mouth I have an appointment with a dermatologist on 12/15 but cant wait that long! Only recently I decided to srub my face to flake off the dry skin and it hurt and stung! I live in a dry/desert climate so that isnt helping. Ive tried ProActiv and the Netorgena (sp?) stuff you buy online before the first dermatologist appointment and it didnt really work.
Avatar f tn Relax in a bath and lay tomato slices on your face like a mask. The acidity will dry out pimples. Follow up with washing your face with baking soda and warm water to exfoliate and wear away any dry skin. My acne is horrible as well. I feel your pain!
Avatar f tn Another way you can bleach your face in home with potatoes this is for people who want to remove blemishes, scars and freckles from their skin. These are inexpensive and easily available remedies for fairer skin first of all Peel off the skin of the potatoes and finely chop it.now take 3 spoons of rose water and grind potatoes with this rose water,to this fine paste add little honey and lime water and apply to the face,leave it for 15 minutes and wash with cold water.
965147 tn?1261596081 I have a library of natural remedy and homeopathy books thanks to my wife's late grandmother. This is a quote from a book called "oddball ointments, Powerful potions, and Folk Remedies" by Jean Karen Thomas: "Calendula Wash - Calendula's bright orange flowers can be made into a refreshing facial wash. Just steep 1 teaspoon of calendula flowers in 1 cup of hot water for 10 minutes. Cool, and strain. After cleansing your face as normal, rinse it with the calendula wash.
Avatar f tn I have always loved my soft skin. Has anyone else experienced this? Are there any remedies I should try besides rubbing my favorite Bath and Body Works lotion on? Should I be concerned? Please let me know. Thank you!
Avatar m tn When I swim for long periods of time out in the sun, the skin turns to a really visible white color. I always use lotion on my face so its not totally dry. What's also weird is that I'm a male and in that section of skin, I don't grow any facial hair, not that I try but there's just no hair there. Sometimes I can feel it tingle just a bit. Any suggestions as to how I can get rid of this blemish?
Avatar f tn Since reaching my mid 30's my skin has been a wreck. I have dry skin that is sensitive and whenever I use moisturizers they break me out even when they say it doesn't clog pores. So I am constantly trying to battle acne with products that dry and moisturizers that break me out. I just can't seem to get the right routine for my skin type...please HELP!!
7612493 tn?1393740678 I was hhaving the same problem, I used cocoa butter (body butter) Palmers, twice a day in the am and before bed, itll reduce as the weeks go by.
Avatar f tn Hello dear, Try some home remedies which help you to make your skin better and remove dark circles. •Rub a piece of papaya on face for instant glow. •Go glowing with milk-banana face pack. (Mashed banana in milk) •Apply honey and rinse it off after some time with cold water for instant glow on skin. •Boil some cabbage in water and wash the face with it(after cooling), would render immense radiance to skin. •Mashed tomato in curd if applied on face can work wonders for skin.
Avatar n tn I moisturize with Vitamin E oil and Cocoa Butter mixed, and I use Oil of Olay for sensative skin on my face... But lately I'm experiencing VERY dry and chalky skin even after I moisturize. I'm 5 mo preg. so I pay extra special attention to my middle area, and I have no itching of any sort there. My face, shoulders, chest and legs mainly. I tried a pineapple/sugar scrub to take away dry skin, and that worked for a few days but now its back to chalky even after I moisturize.

Avatar n tn You should not wash your face with soaps - they will dry the skin further - use non drying face wash and apply medicated sun screen - preferably one prescibed by your skin specialist. You could apply calaimne lotion to help soothe the lesions. Let us know what your skin specialist advises and post us about how you are doing. Regards.
Avatar n tn I have had dry, swollen, cracked, peeling skin on my eyelids which has become progressively worse over 7 years. Have been prescribed cortisone but only is an overnight cure. Is this exceme? or psoriasis? or allergies? How can I get over this??? HELP!!!
Avatar n tn When I develop a problem (especially one of my bouts of chronic cystitis) I personally use a blow-dryer held back FAR from the vulva (as far as I can hold the dryer), set on low/cool, low air, to dry the skin after blotting the area gently. I also make my own douches, with vinegar and water (a bit strong on the vinegar if there is no existing skin irritation), then douche again with simple water.
Avatar f tn Be sure to wash your face with selenium sulfide only once a day and wash it off your face thoroughly each time. Washing more than once a day can cause your skin to dry and lead to further irritation. If your skin is very sensitive and gets irritated after washing, then apply light skin-sensitive moisturizer to your face. Try not to touch affected areas with fingers and never scratch affected areas.
280369 tn?1316705641 Aveeno Baby lotion non scented works VERY well for dry skin, I use it on myself and my children, I get the scent free one, and it hydrates for 24 hrs. Hope he feels better soon!
5265722 tn?1402527432 The redness is subsiding but the redness feels like kind of very dry skin now, has that happened to you? Also it turns out that the reason my blister burst is because my incision where some of my stitches were was opened so I have a small little hole that was oozing watery blood. I've been changing my dressing throughout the day for a few days, it's hardly coming out now but it's still oozing a bit. Should i continue with the gauze until my wound is fully healed?
Avatar n tn I've been seeing a dermatologist, but I try to find alternate remedies as well (since prescriptions tend to be very expensive) Right now, I've been using Differin and Duac acne lotions. I've been on those for maybe 2 years. Lately, however, my skin has been VERY dry (seeing as it's winter in Minnesota). But at the same time, I have extremely oily skin, which I usually blot once every hour (but I don't need to as much lately).
Avatar f tn Because that is what causes the stretch marks when your skin stretches it breaks the skin cells and causes the skin to be damaged and well stretched. so there are some things that can help with stretch marks and to help prepare your skin for the change. Olive oil is a well known remedy that helps your skin transition as the baby grows and your skin stretches.
Avatar f tn I have always had dry skin, but even with thyroid medication, my skin is extremely dry. I don't use a lot of lotions or creams because I am always washing my hands. Is there anything in the natural remedies that I could start taking to see if my skin condition would improve?
Avatar f tn Do you mean dry upper eye lid skin, or are your eyes themselves dry? If the upper lid skin itself is dry, itchy, and flaky, this might be atopic dermatitis, and an ophthalmologist or dermatologist should be consulted for treatment. If your eyes themselves are dry, there are many remedies including artificial tears, nutritional support, and environmental modification and again, an ophthalmologist can help diagnose and treat the condition.
Avatar m tn I would like to know if anyone could tell me what issue I've been having with my face for sometime now (few months+) and any medications I might have to get from a doctor and any other remedies. I've been starting to have dry, red skin on both sides of my face which seem to be centralized on the area just to the side of the corners of my mouth, and then directly downward and slightly inward above the chin - sort of like a "U" formation.
Avatar n tn Wash your face with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Pat your face dry. Then apply a good hypoallergenic moisturizer over the area and see if this improves. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.

Avatar f tn What I use in the evening is Serious Skin Care's glycolic cleanser with dry hands and dry face, rinse, and then follow cleansing with the Daily Ritual Cleanser also by Serious Skin care with a wet face and hands. After cleansing with both cleansers I apply Nature's Cure for Females 5% benzoyl peroxide to my entire face. I also take the Nature's Cure pills AM and PM.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know any good remedies for dry skin? I have horrible dry skin and no lotion is helping not even coco butter.
Avatar n tn That being said, I have red patches (looks like dry skin) on my face (under my eyes, either side of nose), in brow, and above eyes. Also, behind my ears and in my ears. Finally, I also have them under my hair (scalp and beard). The red patches are isolated to head. This started in my late 20's and has continued to the present...some days/weeks are worse than others. I've used the following topical medication in the past (w/ some success): Fluocinoloine Acetonide (USP, 0.01%, 60ml).
