[skin concerns] what is up with my skin? is this just dehydrated skin? | Kr Laser
published on Jan 21, 2020
hey all – skin has been blotchy, red, and tight feeling for a few months now since damaging my moisture barrier in march. i’m going to a medical esthetician and a dermatologist next weekend, but in the meantime wanted to throw this pic out there in case someone can help me figure out what this is. have a feeling a derm will just throw another drying prescription at me, so not really relying on figuring much out when i go. feels like my skin is always slightly tight and parched, no matter how many moisturizers i pile on top.
AM and PM: rinse with distilled water, aloe vera, complex 15, laroche posay cicaplast baume. Spot treat with azelaic acid.
Stopped cleansers for now bc my skin was so irritated. Haven’t been using actives otherwise, also take an omega 3 supplement and eat pretty healthily. Face looks decent in the morning, but gets blotchy and icky feeling by afternoon. Should i be misting my face mid-day? Have i permanently damaged my barrier, since its been more than half a year it’s been like this? I’ve already tried hado labo hydrating toner, honey mask, not washing in the morning, washing with only water, cosrx snail mucin, and dr jart ceramidin.
