Unhappy Dry patches of skin on my face? Ways to get rid?

Hi so I a few days ago I came out with dry patches around the side of my lips and nose. I do have a cold so this might be a cause but I'm still not sure why, I have never had these before and they sometimes become itchy.In a few days I have to go to a family party/gathering and I really don't want to look all scabby with spots and dry patches so I am wondering if anyone knows how to get rid of them? p.s I am not allergic to anything as far as I know of. Btw I have brown hair, blue eyes and olive-ish skin. Products with aloe vera tend to suit my skin well. Thanks for any replies.

This board doesn't get much action. You'll get more replies if you post this in Non-Hair Discussion.

Anyway, I'd suggest Vaseline or cold cream. You may want to put on jojoba oil first.

It could be a lack of moisture or dehydration. Make sure your getting your daily water intake, it really helps skin.

I have the same issues, around my nose, lip and t-zone. I have dermatitis though so it flakes a lot, worse in winter months. I wash my face with dandruff shampoo (sounds crazy but works great!) and use a heavy moisturizing cream.

I wouldn't recommend using oils or petroleum jelly in those areas. If it's dermatitis, your skin is already oily and those products will only make it worse.

Moisturize, exfoliate, repeat. I would also advise against vaseline.

It could be seborrhea, which is like dandruff of theface or other areas. But a derm wouldhave to diagnose that.

Hey thanks for suggestions just found some aloe vera moisturizing cream. Applying it regularly and its working great. Not sure about anti-dandruff shampoo my dad uses t-gel and that makes my hair greasy (weird right!) and so that might not be great for my face but i am drinking more water . Thanks for the help :P

Which dandruff shampoo do you use on your face?

I use Nizoral. It's not too expensive and the smallest bottle lasts a really long time. My dermatologist said it was the best for handling seborrheic dermatitis flare-ups. I use my Clarisonic (super pricey but totally worth it) and a little of the shampoo. I exfoliate and medicate it one step. Super easy. If my flare-ups are really bad I use hydrocortisone cream. However, you will eventually build resistance to the point it no longer works. I only use when it's really bad and use sparingly. I like the Philosophy face creams for moisture.
