How To Deal With Dry Facial Skin?
My name is beautiful, aged 17, I experience irritation under my nose at first it hurts then flushes after flushing, then my facial skin feels very dry and also the area around my face that is prone to sweat please give advice. Thank you
Hello, good morning, Beautiful.
Redness at the bottom of the nose that feels sore / sore can be a symptom of dry skin, one of which is skin irritation. The area around the nose, lips, and eyes is a more sensitive area than the other areas of the face.
Some conditions that cause skin irritation include:
use of facial creams, soaps, or cosmetics that contain certain chemicals that cause dry skin (for example due to alcohol content) exposure to direct sunlight for a long time lacking water intake changes in weather (low humidity, for example due to dry season) etc.
Here are some suggestions that we can provide regarding your complaint:
Consume 2-2.5 liters of water per day. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight. Avoid washing your face with hot water. Avoid using facial soap with a facial scrub type because it can exacerbate the irritation that occurs. In the meantime, you can try washing your face with baby soap which tends to be free of chemicals that can cause dry skin, avoid washing your face with soap too often, just 2 times a day (especially before going to bed) avoid using toner for a while, consult face creams. which you should use to a dermatologist. The doctor will provide a moisturizer that will be tailored to the condition of your facial skin.
I hope this helps.
