i have always had an oily tzone but after years of sunburns to the face i now have a very dry and flakey tzone. My forehead and around my nose. It is dry and it is flakey and very red. I have tried moisturiser creams some greasier ones work but it leaves my face greasy. Doesnt really cure the redness either. Anyone have any other ideas? Anything would be greatful.
Thank you

What can I do next?

Have you tried Jafra's royal jelly? It's their signature product and been around as long as the company. They use royal jelly on burn victims. It's really expensive if you buy it alone but I know lots of people that buy it alone because they love it so much. I think they are crazy but hey... I keep some on hand for really dry or problem skin and my hubby even uses it sometimes.

Have you tried Reliv's skin care line? Their products really do a lot to balance and repair the skin at the right ph level. There's a lot of research into what a healthy skin cell needs, and the stuff isn't just thrown out on the drug store shelves with a lot of advertising. The company really stands behind things. You can use a very very small amount and the products really last a long time. The 15 YO could also benefit - this is the age of skin problems for many teens.

You can also consider a top notch supplement to repair from the inside out. That can have a huge effect on skin, which is your largest organ. I'd be glad to talk to you more if you want to pursue this.

Congratulations on your wonderful family - you have worked hard to build a unit and I'm sure it's not easy.

My husband has a red and flaky T zone. The Dr suggested hydro cortisone such as courtison 10. Rub it in a couple times a day every day. When he is consistent in remembering it does make a big difference, but it will come back if you stop using it consistently.

Hi K..
I specialize in make up and skin care and one thing that I have learned is that sometime it's what you take that works not what you put on your skin. I have reccommended aloe (that you drink) for some folks and there are a couple other antioxidants and formulas that may help. In order for make up to look good you must have good skin but in order to have good skin many times you have to start from the inside out.
If you would like some more information on some products just let me know.
