Lately, I have been seeing really dry patches around my mouth. I have tried a face scrub, but no matter what I do, the dry spots still show.



Does anybody know how to make the dry spots smooth again?

Is scrubbing good for dry spots? Have you tried applying a simple moisturizer? My face gets pretty dry during winter, and I found that does the trick for the most part.

Yeah, but it only helps for so long. When I put on make-up, flakes show. I use the scrub to smooth out my skin.

Have you ever tried jojoba oil before? It will definitely help moisturize your skin with a drop or two. You could use it after you put on your regular moisturizer or use this alone. It will help clean and close pores too.

avoid makeup for a few days it'll dry you out more, don't scrub it apply moisturizers twice a day and wash the area gently at bedtime and when you get up. applying moisturizer while your skin is still damp makes a big difference. drink enough water and make sure you're getting enough fats in your diet

Aloe vera gel is amazing stuff for dry irritated skin! I have eczema and it works a treat for me

Rose-hip oil is really good as it contains the fatty-acids which help your skin retain moisture. It's pretty inexpensive too.



Also, spraying a hydrating mist on your face before you apply moisturiser helps. You can get really cheap ones, like Evian.

Scrubbing too much will actually make them worse. Try just using a gentle cleanser and only scrubbing weekly or so.



Also, is directly at the edges of your lips? It might be a yeast infection. And yes, you can get those in your mouth.

i was thinking that too. if it's white and scaly you might want to make a doctor's appointment, they can give you something for it. if it's just dryness it'll clear up.

(if it is a yeast issue cutting back on sugar/carbs may help keep it from recurring)
