Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, facial skin always produces natural oils called sebum. This natural skin oil has a function to maintain skin moisture. The skin can become dry due to loss of this natural oil. There are many factors that can cause dry skin, for example:
the weather is too cold and dry
how to wash your face wrong or wash your face excessively
the use of skin care products that are wrong or too harsh
certain skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis
excessive sun exposure
side effects of certain drugs
Continuously wetting the dry area of the skin with water and rubbing it too harshly can cause the skin in the area to become more dry and scaly. Rubbing too hard can also cause the already dry skin to become chapped and irritated. Irritated skin for a long time can indeed become black and will thicken over time. You should not do these things again.
The following are some things you can do:
Wash your face only 2 times a day, morning and night before going to bed
Make sure you wash your face with facial soap intended for dry facial skin
Avoid using body soap to wash your face, do not use antiseptic soap, or soap containing scrubs
You can exfoliate your face with scrubs or other exfoliating products 2-3 times a week
Use only warm water to wash your face, don't overheat
Avoid scrubbing your face too harshly, as well as when you dry your face
Use a facial moisturizer every time you wash your face. Choose moisturizing products that are intended for dry facial skin so that the results are more leverage
Use sunscreen every time you go outdoors in the morning and afternoon
Make sure you drink enough every day
You may also use a humidifier in your bedroom or in your workspace if you work a lot in an air-conditioned room.
Blackness that has appeared on the side of your nose and lips will slowly fade with good facial care. You can also consult directly with a dermatologist to get certain medicines for your facial treatment.
