Who else has this? And I don’t mean oily in some spots (around the nose and forehead) and dry in others. I mean oily on top of dry. After I get out of the shower my face is soooo dry that it turns whitedryyuckiness and pieces of my face just flake off onto the ground. It’s like really bad dander, probably worse than any sort of dander you’ve ever had, on my face. Then after maybe thirty minutes after my shower my face turns really, really oily, but the dead skin wont stop even while it is oily. I wake up every morning with white heads even if I washed my face before I went to bed. My face is extremely sensitive to everything, and I’ve used both dry and oily face products/acne solutions and both of them just make my pores feel really clogged and my face leaks more or it makes my face turn really red and irritated. Usually both. My face is always really red and irritated no matter what, but if I use something special on it it becomes worse.
The best stuff I’ve ever used is Burt’s Bees acne products and cleansers. It doesn’t give me the extra leakage/dryness/irritation, and seems to cut down on the dry/dead skin sometimes but my problem is still there and just as annoying as ever. Still just as red, too. I don’t know what to do. I’m about to rip my face off, I’m tired of living like this. It feels so gross.
Because my skin is so sensitive I’m leaning more toward natural ways to fix my problem, but I’ll settle for any advice I can get. I’ve searched through many sites and message boards and none of them seem to understand what I’m talking about or know a solution to my problem.
