Does your skin feel tight, rough, itchy and flaky? if so, you might be also be experiencing dry skin.
My whole life I believed I had oily skin, so of course I used skincare products to manage oily skin. Imagine my surprise when Saska, a skin care thearpist from Mellacare evaluated my skin and found it to be very dry underneath the shin that I now know is just product build up! So here I am in conjunction with Mellacare to give you some tips on how to manage your skin if you too have dry skin.
If you had oily skin or acne prone skin in the past and you are still using the same skincare products, but your skin condition have changed, this could be contributing to your dry skin and might be a sign to switch up your products.
