Could you go see a skin therapist? I have pretty dry skin too and sometimes even water is too drying.  There are cleansing products that you actually don’t need to wash off with water, but only wipe off with cotton. I only uses water when I wash my makeup off. In the morning and at nights when I haven’t worn any make up I clean my face with Ultracalming Cleanser from Dermalogica. I just wipe it off with cotton. I really like Dermalogicas products overall and use pretty much nothing else for my face. I actually purchase all my Dermalocgia products from the UK since it’s crazy expensive here in Sweden.

I have very dry skin prone to eczema and all I use on my face is water and ‘Hydraderm’ Sorbolene cream. It’s really thick and greasy but my skin just soaks it all up. 

I would see a dermatologist if you haven’t already.

Shesaidyes:  Can you get/have you tried Prescriptives “Comfort” products? Comfort Cleanser, Comfort Cream…for the longest time they were the only thing I could use on my sensitive skin.

I’ve been using a retinol product and it has my face feeling as smooth as a baby’s butt! It has also given me a healthy glow.

Try these products!! I have been using them for about a year now…amazing. All natural, 5 ingredients of less in every product.

I use a cleansing oil from Shu Uemura. It is expensive but the large bottle lasts a long time. It makes my skin feel amazing. I think some drugstore brands have less expensive versions.

Shesaidyes:  yeah it is somewhat expensive. I still have my 1st bottle & I got it in December. You can’t tell how much is left over though. You can get it from dermstore.com & when you sign up for their emails, you get 15% of your 1st order. The nurse that told me about said that she can tell if people have been using retinol, when they come in to see her. 

Yes, unfortunately I do have very sensitive skin. I don’t break out in rashes from things like you were describing, but I’ve had sensitive & dry skin my whole life. It definitely took me awhile to get used to the retinol. The .5 is a lower potency & I started off using it only twice a week. I did peel quite a bit at first too, but it’s a sign that it’s working & getting rid of the dead & yucky skin that’s just sitting there on your face. I bought one of the Skin Medica extra moisturizing creams that was recommended to me. I had always had bumps on my cheeks. They weren’t pimples & they were flesh colored. I think maybe they were just clogged pores or something? But I had them even as a child. They’re gone now & like I said, my skin is very smooth & fresh looking. It actually comes in a .25 strength as well, so maybe that would be a better place to start. Have you ever used a retinol product before? I hadn’t. This was recommended to me to help prevent wrinkles, so thats another great quality of it. It only takes 1 pump to do my face but I usually use 2 pumps & extend it down my neck. 

I immediately thought of this product while I was reading your post. It really does work & I’m very happy with it. I truly believe it would really help you as well. Skin Medica is a more expensive brand of skin care, so maybe trying a different brand would be a better place to start, just to see if you like it. I don’t know though…I’m a firm believer that you get what you pay for. To me it’s worth it, because it’s my face πŸ™‚

Have you tried coconut oil?  It’s great for cleaning your face or used as a moisturizer.  I would think its less messy than olive oil.

Retinol works excellent for me as well. But it also dries and thins your skin so…

Little bumps can be a vitamin D deficiency.
