Dryness: Dryness has many causes and treatments. First look at cleansing products--mild is best. Non-soap cleansers like dove, cetaphil, cerave are usually non-drying. Avoid any salicylic or glycolic acid products. Wash with cool or lukewarm water. Immediately moisturize--make sure no retinol or glycolic acid in your moisturizer. Aveeno (oatmeal) positively radiant is a good, heavier moisturizer.
