Dry skin

Hi doc, I will be 56 soon and my skin is becoming very dry. I use facial day and night creams and try and go for a facial once a month but it does become expensive. I always used to have an oily skin but lately my skin feels extremely dry and pulls. I live at the coast and would like to know what make of facial creams I should use that will not cost me an arm and a leg.

Hi Mel, thank you for the question.

Your best advice would be to consult a dermatologist who can examine the skin and give you the best treatment options. Unfortunately as we age our skin changes and one of these is a dyer skin; the best approach would be to use products that contain alphahydroxy and polyhydroxy acids, vitamin C, and vitamin A. good value for money is Environ, NeoStrata, Nimue, etc.
