I’ve always had dry skin but now it’s beyond a joke. I use a serum twice daily but my skin (especially my forehead) is so dry it’s flaky. I can’t even wear make up as it looks terrible! Any cost effective suggestions?

  • My Aunty’s GP suggeted Sorbolene Cream. He also she use it in the shower instead of other products. He skin definitely improved.


  • Me too – redness if use a chemical filled product. I am in love with rosehip oil – apply it each evening, and my gosh, my sun damaged skin loves me!


  • I would suggest Sorbolene cream, but a lot of the other suggestions here seem like good treatments to try.


  • An overnight mask of either roship oil, bio oil or a popped vitamin E capsule applied directly to the skin. You wake up with hydrated and plumped skin.


  • Buy some Sorbolene and Rose Hip Oil. Add a few drops of Rose Hip Oil to Sorbolene and apply to skin. Works for me. Good luck.


  • Olive oil is a good natural skin saver. Have you looked at how you’re washing your face, what with, how often? That could be contributing to your problem. I’ld just keep up regular moisturising


  • Rosehip oil (trilogy)!
    I’ve only been using it for about a week and there’s already a huge improvement :)


  • I would suggest trying different testers at a pharmacy. That way you can see if your skin reacts or responds to the product, without the huge expense first


  • Coconut oil, rose hip oil. Both amazing!


  • Rosehip Oil (Trilogy) is fantastic for dry skin and Vitamin E cream.


  • i know what you mean about the make-up! it goes crumbly and doesn’t spread nice but rather gets stuck on the dry patches and makes it stand out


  • I use olive oil or argan oil. A few drops in the hand and rug it in helps me greatly. I didn’t put too much on otherwise my skin becomes oily as I have very wide pores.


  • I would also go and ask your pharmacist what they can recommend. It may need a treatment for a few weeks??


  • You HAVE to try Sukin. I was in the same boat and wanted something that didn’t cost the earth and got good reviews and I found Sukin. Available is most chemists and most products $10-$20. Try the facial oil with the Rosehip day cream on top and you will see a difference within a few days. I now use their mask, night cream, body and facial scrub and body moisturiser. They are an Aussie Co, not tested on animals and chemical free…LOVE them!!


  • Make sure you exfoliate once a week and I would agree that coconut oil is amazing! It is cheap and good for your skin and hair
