Severely dry skin and redness, only on face ...

I've tried every lotion I could find on the shelves that said it would help dry skin... I've tried using different make ups, facial washes, using none for awhile... I saw my dermatologist a few years ago and was given a prescription strength lotion and it did nothing.

My skin, ONLY on my face -- and bottom of feet but that doesn't bother me as much -- is so dry and rough feeling. You can see it even through make up. My cheeks and across the bridge of my nose is very red, which is why I have to wear make up in the first place. I feel it is only getting worse lately. I have random dry patches that pop up, usually near my eyes (currently on my right eyelid and in the outer corner of the right eye).

It is EXTREMELY frustrating and makes me feel so self-conscious in public. It's caused a spike in my anxiety.

Does anyone know of any lotions, washes, remedies, etc. that could help the redness and dryness? Has anyone experienced this and been diagnosed with something specific or know what this could be? TIA!
