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!
