Shesaidyes:  eminence organic! They make a dermexfoliant from rice, rhubarb, strawberry. It’s a powder that you add a couple drops of water to in the palm of your hand to make a gritty paste. I am obsessed with it- makes your skin like a babies butt. It’s a Hungarian company so I bet you can get it no problem.

Another option for you is a manual exfoliator like the clairisonic brush.

Shesaidyes:  Is Avene available there..I know it’s a French product? They even make great retinoids for sensitive skin. My best girlfriend is my Dermatologist and she started me on this as well as cream that controls my  eczema.

Do you take a daily mutlivitamin? You may want to consider taking biotin. It is for hair skin and nails health. Highly recommend.

I’m allergic to fragrance, and most other additives in products.  The only ones safe for me are vanicream and free and clear brands.  They have great cleaners, lotions, shampoos, etc.  I know you can buy it on amazon, so I’d check it out.

Peanut-Sue:  Would this work well for me? I have dry patchy skin and rosacea.

Shesaidyes:  I am a black woman as well.  I got my first skin needling treatment over a month ago, I do regular facials and I use retinol (1% from skinceuticals but that would  be wayyyy high for you). I have been using it for over a year now. I also use organic vitamin C on my face every morning (cant use with the retinol at the same time which has to be applied at night). My skin is now amazing because of my regimen. I also take Vitamin D and Omega 3 pills.

HOWEVER, if you do some research, you will see that retinol makes you SUPER DUPER sensitive and especially to the sun.  And when I use it often, it ‘hurts’ my face because it gets really sensitive to touch and it does thin out your skin (although temporarily).  So if I were you, I would do a very, VERY low percentage of retinol. By the way, it dries out your skin like crazy…like CRAZY I tell ya…and you already have dry skin.

Shesaidyes:  I bet a Vitamin D supplement would make a big difference, not only in your skin but your whole body since you live somewhere without a lot of sunshine! I have really dry skin, and a lot of sun damage (ugh) and I’m older  (also ugh ) and at night I use a mixture of olive, avocado, coconut, and neem oils. I dip a cotton pad in the oil, rub it over my face, and then just sort of lay a hot wash cloth on it to get it off. But I don’t get it all the way off, and my face feels amazing. I’m also poor, and this is a great cheap kind of skin care! In the morning I use a rose and witch hazel toner and sunscreen.

I have an inexpensive bar of soap made from olive oil, jojoba oil, tea tree oil, and a few other natural products. Something like that might work well for you. Try finding an organic store nearby and asking if they carry anything similar.
