So I've been having a bit of a skin problem and I was wondering if any of you could help XD

my skin- especially on my face- is really dry, but if I use lotion or anything like that I start to break out :C

what should I do DX

I try not to be to ruff and avoid putting anything to harsh on it but this year that just won't cut it.

help please!

Hair is kinda fine and kinda thick.
Super short, I'd like definition but styling products don't like me
