Cool! I have a spot of eczema on my lower back but have never used the Dream Cream on it. I'm gonna start trying that tonight and see if it helps. Thanks for the tip!

My skin is SO DRY! I hate this time of year because we have very cold and very dry wind, so my skin basically feels like it's going to alternately burn or itch off of my body, including my face.

I use Organic Tea Tree Oil as a toner, and LUSH Aquamarina . I also use Burt's Bees almond and coconut oil body oils and LUSH Skin Drink as body lotions/moisturizers. I use Happy Hippy as a shower soap and it makes me smell like a big ol' grapefruit.

I've heard that LUSH's Coalface works really well for oily/combo skin.

Emily_325....try Coconut and Almond Smoothie if you want a body wash of theirs. It smells great...you smell sort of like vanilla and ylang ylang after washing with it. And it's a bath cream that you put directly on your skin, so it's nice for dry skin.

Very oily. I can not go more than a day and a half without washing my hair. Usually by the AM, I feel dirty, even if just the hair around my face looks somewhat dirty because of the oil on my face.

I've had acne since the 4th grade. I've been on antibiotics and all that lovely stuff for it. I don't even try to hide it because all makeup concealers make me break out worse. I do use a moisturizer with spf 15 though. And it's supposed to be for oily skin.

I also have eczema, but my breakouts are scattered, like right now on my pinky and middle finger. Usually they come where I have had cheap metal touching my skin. But not always. I use a cream the dr gave me for that.

Biore makes a number of skin products and some are geared towards acne.

I use just the normal 'shine control cleanser' because my face is super oily.

Here is a link showing all of their products. Most if not all should be available locally in your drug store.

What you should try is taking "Evening Primrose Oil"

Many years ago I was plagued with eczema on the side of my wrist and the inside of my right knee. It was awful! Itchy, scaley, weepy. It was just gross.

The pharmacist near where I lived at the time was filling a new prescription for me for my eczema that contained Mercury and I happened to mention that I hope that this one worked!

He started to tell me about something called "Efamol" aka Evening Primrose Oil. It's something you take like you would a vitamin supplement. He didn't have any in stock but said he could order some in if I was interested. So I accepted!

I was amazed. My eczema cleared up and I haven't had a bout of it since, not once. I've also recommended it to some friends and co-workers and their eczema cleared up too.

I've done research on Evening Primrose Oil and have found several articles that indicate that there is some evidence supporting the possible effectivene of evening primrose oil in the treatment of . . . PMS . . . sore breasts, multiple sclerosis, atopic eczema, various diabetes-associated problems, cardiovascular disease, and several other conditions.

I can have really dry skin during the winter months, but in the summer months I have pretty "normal" skin. Not too much of this or that.

I have oily skin and use the Body Shop's Tea Tree line for my facewash and moisturizer. It's made a huge difference in my skin - my face is MUCH more balanced than it used to be.

I don't use anything on my face... It's not oily nor dry except for in the deep winter when it will dry out some. I have very fair skin and freckle easily, burn easily and am sensative so I just leave it alone!

I'm voted Combo skin.

Right now my skin is extremely dry. I use Aveeno for my body and Nivea face cream for my face.

For washing though I use Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash.

In the summer however I'm prone to more oily skin and so I breakout more.

do you have psorasis, sebboria or exema (sp?) that could be causing your really dry skin- if so, a derm can give you lotions that will help i have psorasis.[/quote]

No don't have any of tha, I dont know if it has anything to do with having very thin skin or not but I do, I think right now here in So Ca the weather is causing some of it

My skin is pretty normal, a little sensitive at times. I've always loved and used Noxzema for a facial wash and I use St. Ives Collagen Elastin moisturizer, which I just started using about a year ago. I love St. Ives products.

I was having a big problem with my hands being very dry and sore, but ever since I've been using bar soap instead for washing my hands it seems that the problem has gone away. The Aveeno hand lotion I think is really helping too.
