For the past week or so I've noticed a problem with the skin on my face. It seems to be really tight, it seems dry. Areas around my eyes slightly burn. I haven't been out in the sun so its not a sunburn. The skin seems flakey. When I put lotion on it, it burns. Anybody have any ideas about what this is, and what I can do to help it.

Have you been applying any creams? I got a reaction myself because I was using a cream that had a steroid in it. I went out into the sun, it reacted with the cream and my skin went burnt sort of like what you're describing.

Some antibiotics also cause a reaction with even a small amount of sunlight.

  • Anybody have any ideas about what this is, and what I can do to help it. Sure. External contactants can do this, seborrheic dermatitis can do this, exposure to elements can do this, persistent rubbing or scratching can do this, along with other things that I'm not immediately thinking of at the moment. In most cases, a mild steroid cream for a short period of time can help greatly. Of course, anything you put on irritated skin will burn, at least until things improve a bit. If that doesn't work, go see a doctor. What's with the underlining?:confused:

  • If your skin is dry, flaky and itching or burning then you are allergic to your face creams or even soap...go natural..im sure that you'll have no problem on that... FOR EYES:* cold teabag = gently apply around the eyes (careful that it wont get into the eyes) then leave on for a 10mins then rinse off with lukewarm water..The "tannin" in the tea is a great exfoliant to skin...works great..2. Milk + honey = use cold milk, do the same procedure as the teabag...works well too..3. lotsa water and sleep... FOR MOISTURIZERS:* use olive oil..you can use it from head to toe...apply lavishly and leave it on...Im sure that you'll have smooth soft skin in no time. Hope this helps...also check out Lifecell and BASQNYC Cucumber Tea Eye Gel...that's what i use... :D

  • For skin so smooth, you can try this regimen:1. Pick a couple handfuls of fresh rose petals free from insects or other impurities. Pick first thing in the morning while they are still soft with dew.2 Crush the rose petals gently to help release their natural oils and scent.3. Place rose petals in a large jar.4. Pour oil over the rose petals just to cover.5. Cover the jar with a lid or a piece of muslin cloth and let sit for 24 hours.6. Remove the rose petals from the oil after 24 hours and squeeze the petals to remove excess oil back into jar. Discard petals.7. Strain the oil in the jar to remove any leftover petals and impurities.8. Add freshly crushed rose petals to the jar of oil. Let sit for another 24 hours.9. Repeat Steps 1 through 8 about six to seven times until you achieve the rose scent you desire.10. After final straining, pour rose scented oil into a decorative jar or container and your oil is ready to use.Im sure you'll never have problems with scars or wrinkle products anymore... ^_^and as for eye care, you can do this:* Apply vitamin E or olive oil. * Tie some potato grates in a cloth and place over eyes for about 15-20 minutes. * Place chilled cucumber slices or damp tea bags over eyes for about 20 minutes. * Practice the exercise for eye puffiness daily. * Apply a 1:1 mixture of cucumber juice and lemon juice for 105 minutes. * Apply a cool tap water compress to the skin under your eyes for about 15 minutes. Hope this helps :D
