Hi Kelly, thank you for the question.
The best approach would be to consult an aesthetic medical practitioner or cosmetic dermatologist who can examine the skin and advise you on the appropriate treatment regime. I would also use a VISIA Complexion Analysis (computerized skin analysis tool) and a Wood’s Lamp to add to the diagnoses of your concerns. From there one can prescribe the correct treatment regime. I am a firm believer in using glycolic acid to treat dry patches, to smooth the skin, and any fine pimples. NeoStrata has an excellent range to help treat the problems you have mentioned but we need to be sure that the dry patches are not some form of eczema or psoriasis.
