Skin change?

Normally I have very oily skin on my T-zone and normal skin every where else. But lately, my skin has become dry. It's flaking and it looks horrible! It was getting a little dry, and then I switched to Bare Minerals and I use their foundation, primer, and mineral veil. Do you think it's because of the season change(my skin always gets drier during winter, just never this dry) or the Bare Minerals? Also, if you have any tips on getting rid of dry skin that would be great!
My skin has become very dry (mainly my hands, because I'm a compulsive hand washer), because of the weather change. We went from dew points in the 70s to dew points in the 30s within a week. Pretty drastic change for us here, we usually drop gradually. I would tend to attribute it to the weather, if your weather has changed recently.

Also, with using a powder foundation you are more likely to see the dry flecks of skin than you are with using a liquid foundation. That's one reason I stick to liquid.

I would suggest using a light layer of jojoba oil on your skin, instead of a moisturizer (or on top of a moisturizer). Jojoba oil is a wax, so it will provide a layer of protection for you, and it also helps with UV rays.

My skin used to be very good and healthy but lately it got very sensitive and oily. What might have caused this change?

The makeup you were using before could have been bothering you as well. I have worn the same foundation for years, with no problem, and then had a horrible reaction after the company reformulated the product. It's really hard to tell. Chemical changes in your body, diet, weather, products... several things can cause irritation.

The last time I had a reaction (or complete facial freak out) I had to go as natural as possible. I could no longer use the same cleanser, moisturizer, or make up. I had to experiment until I found a brand that worked for me.

Exfoliating is the best way to get rid of dry patches, but be gentle and do not use an exfoliating cleanser that is too rough. A raw, organic honey mask is a very nice treat. Just half a tsp of honey is all you need. You can leave it on for 20 min and it wipes off very easily. It's gentle, naturally anti bacterial, soothes the skin, and hydrates. Use a good moisturizer morning and night, and I agree with avoiding mineral/powder if your skin is dry. It will cling to every single patch. Doing liquid/cream foundation and blush is best, but matte or satin finish liquid foundations will cling to dry patches too, unless you exfoliate and moisturize well right before you put it on. A natural or dewy foundation is better for dry skin moments. You can always tone that down with a light dusting of translucent powder. It won't be as heavy as a powder foundation.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

One more FYI... If you are curious about which foundations may work best you can always google best foundations for dry skin, or search for the same on YT. There are tons of videos by makeup artists (and tons by people giving their opinions) that cover several brands. Make up is like hair products, what works for one may not work for another, but you can get some good info based on whatever problem you are having. Be it oil, dryness, acne, etc.
