Dry Flaky SKin Under Makeup



I am doing everything and my skin is still dry and flaky after I apply my makeup.  I do exfoliate !

If you're skin is dry perhaps you could try applying a heavier cream at night as well as a sleeping mask a couple of times a week apps well as a good day cream. You could also look into a moisturizing bb cream or a c.c cream. I'm unsure if you use a primer but that might give your skin a nice smooth surface to work with. I love Smashbox primers. There's also keeping well hydrated and drinking lots of water. There's also supplements that are healthy for your skin such as omega's and Biotin. All the best and I hope you resolve the issue.

I agree with Shystarr79 especially on the biotin. Also you could try adding hemp hearts to your diet which have all the things our skin, hair, and nails love. I’m all about curing the inside first like drinking more water and adding more omegas and fatty acids to my diet kinda thing. Maybe a serum before your night cream could help as well.

I know you are exfoliating. Are you doing physical or chemical exfoliation. You want to make sure you aren't over-exfoliating and tearing down your moisture barrier, which can lead to even more dry skin. So maybe review how often you are exfoliating and maybe cut down on it and see if your skin is getting better.

Other than that, I would definitely add an oil, or a heavier moisturizer into your routine. As well as use an occlusive to lock everything in. Which will help in reducing those annoying flakes.

Same here! Here's what I've found...

I can relate, I usually run into this problem as well, especially during the winter months. What I've found works best is all around changes to my routine, both before bed and in the morning; generally I'll sleep with a humidifier on, and I apply a heavier moisturizing cream before bed. I avoid exfoliators as much as possible. I know it seems like it should help, but in the long run it'll just make the problem worse! Use a gentle toner or reduce the frequency of exfoliation if you really need to.

In the morning, I wash my face with cold water (not hot! It'll end up drying out your skin faster) and gently rub away any dry skin. I pat try and then moisturize again immediately, and give it 20-30mins to soak in before starting to apply makeup.

In general, make sure you drink enough water, sounds dumb but it does help in the long run. And if you can, try to avoid taking long, hot showers; hot water will be more drying on your skin.
