In Topic: Dry, Cracked, Inflamed Skin Product Advice. Please Help

27 November 2013 - 04:08 AM

Due to the onset of winter in the uk I am experiencing blotchy, dry, cracking , bleeding and painful skin. I have been using a zinc gel on my active acne during the summer and have still been applying it this past week but I really need to put something on my skin that won't cause a flare up, but that will aid healing and that I can maybe apply once every couple of days. I have extremely dry skin, but it also has a tendency to be combination also. Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks :)

Hey Mesha,
I forgot to respond to your PM but I will soon. Just wanted to ask if you tried honey masks. Zinc can be a bit drying, esp. in the winter. 

Hi wishclean,

Thanks for responding :)
I haven't tried a honey mask, I'm very nervous about using one as my skin is now so sensitive, for example , if my hair brushes against my face I usually end up with a breakout on that area. I am not doing the caveman regimen as such, but I've only washed my face in warm water for about 6 months and I don't wear makeup any more ( which has been quite liberating) Should I be using a moisturiser at all ? The odd thing is that at this moment, my skin is neither dry or oily...gosh this is confusing.
Pm when you can :)

Disheartened today.
Ist day of my period and 3 big and very painful acne's, one on my shoulder (?) One on my hair line and one above my lip. The joy of hormones.
Still waiting to have my bloods done for hormone testing, too under weight at the moment, collapsed at last attempt. Still, at least its the weekend , so I don't have to leave the house :)

In Topic: Acne Can Last A Life Time

I'm 41 yrs old and I'm still battling acne.

That's you, most of us aren't gonna be past out early twenties with it.

I've had it twice before. Both times treatments cleared me for approx 10 yrs. Then it came back. I hope everyone is sucessful in finding a treatment that works.

Had it twice what do you mean??
Like I said, most people outgrow it in their early 20s.

I had acne at 15, I don't remember having any treatement so I'm guessing I grew out of it ? I didn't have it by the age of 16.
When I was 27 it came back. I had treatment for 3 years and it cleared up for 11 years. It came back when I was 41.
I wish everyone the best in finding a sucessful treatement. Hope that you all do or that you simply grow out of it .

Thanks. I hope it goes away for you too. It always goes away, I mean unless  your genetics state that it lasts until old age. But I highly doubt that. I wish you the best.

Thank you :) and keep trying various treatments. There are many more available today than when I was younger, so I have faith you will find something. Never give up !! All the best.
