Dry, red cheeks

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Within the last 2-3 weeks my cheeks (my left one is worse) have become quite red and dry...first time this has ever happened too. I'm sure it's due to the colder temperatures, but my daily moisturizer isn't very effective as I notice dry flakes after a few hours and the redness doesn't go away. It's quite annoying because I can't wear makeup to cover it since it just makes my face drier. Does this happen to anyone else, and have you found any moisturizer/routine that's effective?

Treatments - Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask

My skin gets very dry in the winter and this is an HG for me. Leave it on for 20-25 minutes then rinse (or dab) off and your skin will be so incredibly smooth and flake-free.

That happens to me too in the winter time when the air is really dry. Something that has helped me is applying my mousturizer as soon as I get out of the shower while my pores are still open. And I tend to get more facials this time of year.

My "weird" suggestion for this is a product called Udder Balm.

I grew up kinda farm, and we always had that stuff around. It's medicated and honestly cures ailment overnight.

It's available at most fleet supply stores.

Is udder balm like bag balm? I have bag balm and it's great, but I don't know if I could put that on my face bc i think it would be really heavy.

It is heavy... it could cause a break out, but I thought I'd throw the suggestion out there.

I use a gentle scrub to exfoliate and then bobbi brown moisturizers. They seem to be really rich and creamy. My cheeks have been pretty smooth with this regimen.

I used to get really dry cheeks because I'll get random dry patches on my face or used to and I either use Aquaphor (sp?) which is AMAZING for all kinds of dry skin and I've been using ShuUemura cleansing oil to wash my face and it doesnt dry my face out and a lot of my dry patches have cleared up.

I wonder if you have allergies? are they itchy?

Try using Cetaphil the cream in the tub. It works wonders, don't use a lotion too -- they'll generall just make things worse or so my dermatologist says.
