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 biggrin.png

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.

How long are you planning on giving it before deciding to stop or continue?

Thanks for the replies guys. No my face didn't go through the super dry part of the regimen. I'm guessing because my skin was already used to the BP that I've been using for 2 years in form of a spot treatment. Vitamin A sounds good as well and I've read about it on here but taking any kind of supplements or anything like that just freak me out even the ones that shouldn't lol. If u knew me though you would know I won't even take a Tylenol for a headache. Again thanks for the help and sry for being difficult to help. I'm more looking for a cream or wash. I'll give olays foam wash a try

The acne.org moisturizer has oil in it, so that could be the issue?

please please be careful using vitamin A pills. Vitamin A is lipid soluble and as such, you retain it in your body instead of washing it out in your urine.  It can have toxic effects if you OD on it. Like destroying your liver.
