flacky dry skin with make-up

My face i dont know whether it is the cold weather or the stuff i use to clean my face but my face is very flacky and peeling like crazy. I put moisturizer on it but when i try to use makeup it becomes dry and peels off, it looks so gross. It is really frustrating since i have acne and want to cover it up especially when im getting dressed up to work or going out at night and especially for when im performing. I dont know if anyone has suggestions on what to do.

Hey eca1210,

I had the exact same problem and mineral makeup just made it look more obvious. You need a better moisturizer. I started using Dove Deep Moisture for dry skin and the dryness and flaking went away, you should give it a try. Also, gentle manual exfoliation while you wash your face will help (using a wash cloth or a baby brush).

Good luck!
