Anyone feel like sharing their skin care routines that don’t cost a fortune or take forever each day?
*Relevant info: My skin has become very sensitive over the last few years. I used to have small eczema spots on the inside of my elbows that usually only appeared in the winter (dry air) and/or when I sweat playing sports. Lately, I’ve been struggling with a lot of red splotches on my neck that are very dry and make it look like I’ve been strangled. Above my eyes (under the brows) have been insanely dry the past few weeks and are flaky (gross!) no matter how much lotion I put on.
I’ve tried several different kinds of face wash, some work for a while and then I develop a reaction to them, and some just make my face red and itchy from the get go. I have a lotion that I use every day after I shower that was recommended by my allergist (vanicream lite) which works fine, until it gets absorbed and dries in a few hours and then my skin goes back to being insanely dry.
I’ve got an appointment with a dermatologist but it’s not for another month because they are so busy =[ I’m looking for any advice or recommendations on something to try and help in the short term and any advice on regimens to try for everyday skin care so I can get it back to looking nice and even toned.
