In the last few months I've been using Liz Earle C&P, toner and moisturiser. Before that I didn't have a skin care routine at all.
LE started out well leaving my skin super soft, but didn't clear up spots. However, more recently it's got worse and I've started getting dry, red, flaky/scaly patches on my cheeks. I've always had red cheeks - blush v v easily, but this is so much worse lots more spots in last couple of weeks as well.
Family history of excema, I've never had it though. Never had dry skin either apart from on hands in winter.
Can anyone recommend anything nice and calming and soothing? That preferably doesn't cost the earth.. I'm asking a lot!
I am a dedicated user of Liz Earle, too. However, all this cold weather and going in and out of heated buildings is playing havoc with my complexion and I am getting redness and dry patches, too. I deal with this by cleansing every other night with Neal's Yard almond oil (in the same way as LE C&P) and then in the mornings, I put a thin layer of it under my moisturiser. This seems to be helping.
