Starting month 4, Still extremely dry and flaky


I'm starting up my 4th month on the regimen, and am currently having a PMS breakout. :confused::confused: But I'm still extremely flaky and dry during the day! :wall: I put a layer of jojoba oil all over my face before BP, and I still have to use moisturizer (old DKR formula or Cetaphil) multiple times a day and my skin keeps drying out over and over again. :wall: There's no way I can wear makeup this way. Please help. :pray:

For what it's worth though, I live in a VERY dry climate and winter's coming which means dry heat and HEATERS which make it SUPER dry where I live.

Have you tried the jojoba oil massage deal? it kind of helped me, but once i cleansed, all the flakes would come back.

So i

Cleanse. let dry (i also kind of stretch my skin by making faces to loosen the flakes up, its just kind of satisfying, and probably irritating so i wouldn't do it if you have sensitive skin)

apply a generous amount of oil, massage until ALL the flakes are free.

Gently wipe them off with my fingers as best as i can

Apply BP

Moisturize (with a drop or two of oil)

Wait 15-30 minutes, blot off excess oil, and i'm good to go.

It tends to take a WHILE to get all the flakes free, i generally do it until the skin feels smooth underneath, because i have a lot of time on my hands and i'm kind of OCD like that, but you probably don't have to be as thorough.

Just an idea.
