I have discovered a new side effect of the cold weather...

Horribly dry skin!

Even my normally oily skin is feeling dry, tight, and uncomfortable.
Not being used to my skin feeling this dry, I have no idea how to deal with it.  The obvious solution would be to slather on plenty of moisturizer. That's exactly what I have been doing to my dry, itchy arms and legs. 

My face is a different story.

I'm nervous about putting more moisturizer on my face because in my previous experiences along those lines it has led to the development of out-of-control blemishes. Or a hyper rashy reaction resulting from my sensitive skin.  And that is something I would prefer to avoid.

I did have to give in and put some lotion on the face last night. And this morning.  Using as little as I possible could to get some relief from that uncomfortably tight feeling I was experiencing.

What's a girl to do?  It's difficult enough to find reasonably priced products to use on my oily - yet sensitive - skin.  Now, I have to cope with this dryness on top of everything else!


  1. I too have oily sensitive skin AND I am middle aged. I have found that taking baths with just some good ol' baby oil in it really helps. In the winter time my skin soaks it right up. :D

    1. That's a good idea! I haven't done that in years and years! Do you use any sort of moisturizer on your face? I struggle to find one that doesn't spark either a breakout or irritated my sensitive skin! (And preferably doesn't cost an arm and a leg)

  2. I have been using Vicco tumeric cream on my face and it has helped with oiliness, dryness, and has helped my skin not break out since it is based in natural ingredients.

  3. Neutrogena daily moisturizer for sensitive skin
