I use to have super oily skin and now it is starting to get dry as i get older, I don't get acne but all of my skin care is for oily skin. I really don't know how to take care of dry skin, I don't want to over stress my changing skin with cold creams.
Has anyone here been through this and know what i should do to take care of my changing aging skin right?
Well, there can be reasons for your dry skin. If you smoke, or if you take long hot showers, anything having detergent irritates your skin and can make it dry. Actually, just a lot of simple things we tend to do. So sometimes we have to watch out for just actions, but when it comes to skincare I know what to do. I have dry skin myself, but it's sensitive. So I feel like maybe my methods can help you. One way for locking in moisture is applying your moisturizer to your face while it's damp. Since my skin is sensitive I use Vaseline.I feel like it does the job and isn't harsh at all. So I don't think it's would stress your skin change. Maybe even a motorizing soup, like dove. I hope this helps you in some way. Good luck!
Thank you, and yes I smoke. I need to quit, I am going to try quitting again soon
