It dries the heck out of my skin! Right now my skin around my nose kind of hurts because it is so dry. I am currently using a sample of Origins A Perfect World Moisturizer on top of my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer. It seems to be working. I didn’t really like Origin’s moisturizer this summer cause it made my skin oily, when normally my skin is dry. I really want to try Aquafina’s overnight moisturizer cause pinkiecharm really liked it. I looked at Walmart the other night and couldn’t find it so I’m going to go to Target to see if they have it there. I’m sure you don’t care about that though lol.

Yes, it does. My skin is usually normal, but in winter, it becomes dry and feeling bad, even hurtful. My cheeks and hands can’t live without moisturizer!

my skin gets really dry so i use moisturizer. also my skin gets white as a ghost, and i can’t deal with that because i don’t believe in going to tanning salons.

I have oily skin on my face, so it doesn’t really dry my face out but it REALLY messes with my hands. My nails get more brittle and my cuticles get so gross. Ugh!

I love my winter skin! I have really oily skin and during winter it’s not really as bothersome. The problem is that my skin also lightens a tad bit during winter, so I have to get new foundation to match.

Oooh yes. I live in Madison, Wisconsin and the college I go to is a walking school, so I’m outside in the cold wind and whatnot every day. The skin on my face gets even drier than usual (which is already very bad to begin with) and it gets really flaky and such. I recently bought the Thyme Honey Cream from Korres; it works better than anything I’ve ever tried and it smells amazing. The skin on the rest of my body gets extremely itchy/painful, so for that I use Eucerin Calming Cream a couple times a day.

I LOVE winter. I normally have relatively oily skin on my face, but in winter I am totally normal. It’s worth slathering on lip balm and hand cream just for that.. I can use cream blushes now!

yes, Yes, YES! i have eczema and its horrible in the winter. as for dealing with it, does scratching myself into oblivion count? I have no self control when it comes to scratching. I’m usually a goopy scabby mess by the time spring rolls around.

Yes, even for my oily skin. If I exfoliate my skin more than twice a week my chin and my nose become very flaky and makeup looks TERRIBLE. Yet at the same time, it’s STILL oily. Isn’t that weird? LOL How do I cope with it? Well, I can either use Clinique’s Moisture Surge Gel, which helps, but not great (it’s good for the summer for me). But now, I discovered La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar H Hydratant Compensateur Apaisant, which is for acne prone, sensitive skin who needs moisture after drying acne treatments. That works for me WONDERFULLY. In fact, I have been using this Effaclar H line for a year now. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!

It’s weird. Winter makes my skin dry and chapped (and thus, flaky, yum!), but doesn’t cut down on the oil production at all, so I have to juggle oil control lotions and intense moisturizers like a bloody circus clown. And it destroys my hands. I live with a tube of hand cream within arm’s length all winter long.

i have combination skin so my forehead is fine. but my cheeks and my nose get quite dry. on most days i’m lucky enough that my skin doesn’t look too bad even if i forget/don’t have time to moisturize. however if i’m really unlucky then a very dry day it’ll show up! my lips are horrible in winter weather as well.

I’ve never noticed it affecting my face, but my hands just get wrecked. My fingers crack and bleed around the joints and the nailbeds. Regular hand lotion doesn’t seem to help. Hydrocortisone cream seems to soften it.

It makes me soooo ugly! I have eczema all over, though it’s especially red in splotches on my face (and for some reason my eyes swell up a lot when that happens). On top of that, my face gets so flaky it looks like I’m sporting a Santa beard in progress. My hands crack like crazy, my legs itch and then I scratch them ’til they bleed and scab up…Oh, I’m a mess. I’m always relieved when warm weather rolls around (luckily I live in GA). Last year, I slathered Vaseline on my face every night and I STILL woke up with dehydrated skin.

I’m really lucky, my skin is totally fine.My lips are completely dead and my scalp is seriously painful [doesnt help that for the past two winters i’ve opted for dark brown hair (as opposed to my normal really red), so i have to strip my hair and dye it which makes it all the worse]
