#1: Biotin and Dry Skin?
I have combination dry skin and it was getting more oilier since the warmer months are coming up, I live in Iowa. I just started taking Hair,Skin and Nails pills and they contain 1500 mcg's of Biotin. The first day I was dumb and took 2 in the afternoon and 1 at night, yesterday I took 1 in the morning and 1 at night and then today I may just cut it down to 1 at night because within the past 2 days my skin feels really tight and dry, even my eye lids, which I have never had dry eyelids or oily, they were normal. I know the pills are water soluable and my mistake on the first day was that I took 3 pills and hardly drank any water, I drank soda. I just exfoliated, washed, toned and moisturized my face and it feels a bit better but my upper chin, below my bottom lip, feels a bit tight. How much water should I drink to get my normal combo skin back? I wanted to wear makeup but I am afraid that my skin will look horrendous when I apply foundation. Should I drink the 8 glasses a day? And my main purpose for taking this pills is too make my nails strong and stop peeling and make my hair grow longer, it's already really thick. I definitely need to be strict with myself and make myself drink 8 glasses of water a day if I am going to take 2 biotin pills but for right now I am lowering it to only 1 a day. I think my face is dry from the biotin and not drinking enough water, it's like I am having the opposite reaction, I know alot of women have broken out but I'm the total opposite, it's drinking my face out I think. Any suggestions on moisturizers and how much water I should be intaking? I currently use the Clinique dramatically diff.moisturizing lotion.
