Day 18



Just an update on my current routine, what I'm trying, etc.

PureMoist rewetting drops have been AMAZING for keeping my contacts comfortable. I hope they keep working! I hate wearing glasses. Took some practice to not get them all over my face though.

Face is super-dry and very flaky. Lips are not so bad with aquaphor lip repair applied as needed. I stopped putting atralin on my peeling areas (nose edges, chin, lip edges) about a week ago, and stopped using it on my non-flaky t-zone a few days ago. Now I'm doing cerave hydrating cleanser AM, purpose wash PM (it foams, so it takes off makeup better) and using a warm wet washcloth to gently buff away flakes. I was in the desert the past couple of days too so I'm hoping that now that I'm back in less dry climate the flakes calm down.

I've found that doing a layer of cerave PM lotion topped iwth the richer cream on the flaky areas seems to be the most effective. I use dr. jart's bb cream spf 35 on top in the AMs.
