  1. I am living in UAE. For a vacation I came to india and I have bad sensitive skin well I am confused because of water or climate or face wash ( neutrogena oil-free Acne Wash) since I have oily skin I got this face wash but now my skin is really in dry. Very bad dry skin I am unable to open my mouth and my face is very tight without oil I can’t see my face. Because of this I am so much frustrated within a week I am getting married.

  3. Hi iam priya 26 i have holes in my face and my face becoming rough and dry nowadays so what would i do to avoid this?

    • @ Priya:

      Massage with pure natural oils (they are non comedogenic so will not block pores or cause breakouts) like extra virgin olive, coconut and almond are quite effective. Do it rather actively after tightening skin by partially opening mouth and pulling lips firmly back against teeth. Do it in forward and back motions, not a circular massage.

      For better results do this for up to 10 minutes daily.

  4. Great advice but I really wouldn’t recommend hydrocortisone cream, especially in the eye area. It thins the skin and can cause problems if used long term without consultation of your own general practitioner.

  5. I have used all the home remedies and drnk alot of water and apply vaseline and cream etc but it dont curs my dry skin …still my skin is dry and my cheeks and nose are extremely chapped plz suggest me something natural and efffective ..

    • @ zeenat:

      Don’t use any soap to wash your face. Wash you face with water only. If at all, use only a good mild baby soap. Stay away from store-bought cosmetics or any beauty product, as they are usually loaded with all sorts of toxic stuff. As a moisturizer, use a good quality organic coconut. For best results, apply oil to your skin immediately after bathing. Pat your your face dry with a towel, but let some moisture to remain on the surface. Apply oil generously, trapping moisture in to prevent your skin from drying out too quickly. If you don’t see any improvement after few weeks, you may please consult a dermatologist…
