Hello folks,

Although my skin is very oily especially the scalp and forehead, it still feels dry and a bit flaky and dehydrated in some places despite drinking lots of water on daily basis. I hardly use any products on my face and on most days I just use plain water and nothing else because all the stuff I tried (cleanser & soaps) seem to make the matter worse! The cheeks and where I shave feel the driest despite shaving only once a week maximum!
Also, my lips and cheeks get dry and very dehydrated when the water cools or when I travelling.

Anyone has a similar problem?

Apply a mixture of jojoba oil and evening primrose oil every night, and this problem should be solved.

this is exactly my problem. my forehead and nose bridge are super oily. people keep thinking that ive applied ointment to my forehead. on the other hand, i have cracked lips, flaking skin on my cheeks and around my mouth... do you have dry skin problems in other areas of your body?
