Winter climate is my worst enemy, especially when it's below zero... Breaking out a bit and struggling with dryness. Hope it will soon turn into a milder winter :/
Ugh. I'm on the SAME page. I thought my dryness was dealt with b/c I went to my derm. in November when it started getting cold. But apparently, that was FALL in chicago. FALL. The past few days have been constant breakouts, flaking like crazy, tightness. Also probably has something to do with the fact that I started a new tube of Tazoarac, which means it's probably more potent than my older tube. stopped all my topicals tonight and slathered on CeraVe. I want to re-normalize my skin, even if it takes a few days before I add the topicals back in gradually and in small amounts.
Try getting a room humidifier and eat a lot of avocado. It really helpt me recently
I have one! This is WITH a humidifier, haha. And, unfortunately, it's quite hard to get my hands on more than just the basic fruits and veggies where I live. I'd have to travel about a 1/2 hour there and 1/2 hour back to get to a grocery store with avocados. Just not something I have time for in med school. :\ I have been eating yogurt, though! That's supposed to help too.
