I might have mentioned it once or twice that I have been suffering from sudden and inexplicable dry skin. Despite being prone to breakouts I haven’t got oily skin or even an oily T-zone, but since having a thyroidectomy in 2011 I have had drier skin than usual, which is one of the symptoms of hypothyroidism. It has been completely manageable using the correct skincare products, but this recent issue has been difficult to treat.
My forehead in particular has been very dry, to the point of peeling sometimes, as well as my upper cheeks/undereye area. So in my battle against turning into a reptile I’ve discovered some great “dry skin superheroes” which have really helped – and could be what you need if you’re struggling with dry winter skin. These are mostly natural, plant-based products, none of which are tested on animals.
