I am also 43, I have very sensitive skin, it’s a pain in the ass. I just went to the dermatologist a few weeks ago and they suggested vaniply ointment for some dry areas and gave me some vanicream soap – but there is a whole line.  You may want to check that out, you can get it on Amazon and online, I have not been able to find it in any stores. It’s not expensive at all.

You could try adding Cerave in the tub to your regular moisturizer.  It worked wonders for me!

Shesaidyes:  Yes, Ma’am. It’s affordable, designed for super sensitive skin and works like a charm. Here are some products I like:

Shesaidyes:  most people are vitamin D deficient. So definitely try taking vitamin D. 

Do you have bumps on your arms or legs?

Btw, be careful with retina A. If your bumps are rosacea (which research is starting to connect to a vitamin D deficiency), your skin may react horribly. Try a test patch on your chin for a decent period of time before you use it across your entire face.

Another thing that helped me tremendously was adding 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde (an almond extract) to a very basic moisturizer. I buy it online at Skin Actives. You only use a tiny bit at first until you build up a bit of a tolerance (as it stings a bit in the beginning) but it works wonders for me and another friend. We both had tried everything.

Finally, using a primer underneath your makeup can make a huge difference.

Shesaidyes:  . Another excellent moisturizing cream I use is embryollise and this oatmeal mask by First Aid beauty, the cream is bomb too!

lawandbeauty53:  Do you have to have a prescription for avene? When i was looking it up online on where to buy it…there were a ton of Drs offices and a pharmacy near me…

I have been using Rodan & Fields Soothe but to be honest I hate it. It made my dry rosacea face hurt and even more dry so I am looking for something that will help quickly, can’t have dry skin for the wedding…

Shesaidyes: Yes, I’m hearing some retinol isn’t available OTC there, but the rest of the products should be. Embryolisse is awesome, you should read some reviews. Tons of makeup artists use this as a base on aging and/or sensitive skin. The stuff is better than Creme de la Mer, which I have also used and it can cost a thousand for a big jar.

Shesaidyes:  If you live in Germany, you may well need a vit. D supplement most of the year. I know that in Finland, the recommendation is to take daily supplements for at least 6 months of the year, unless your dietary intake is sufficient. Apparently the sun is too low in the sky for vitamin D synthesis, at least that’s what I’m led to believe.

 

Another thing that I find makes my skin much better is making sure I get enough good fats in my diet and taking fish oil supplements if needed.

Shesaidyes:  no that’s crazy! Theyre expensive, but like 30$ expensive, not hundreds. Can you order through Amazon.com where you are?
