Im 21 and use always had dry skin. my face is awful my cheeks and forehead are dry but my nose and chin are greasy. I can't wear make up cos it sticks to the dry patches and looks awful. I have dark circles under my eyes and red blotchy cheeks sad Im getting really depressed about it. I was using simple but it isn't cutting it and nivea is too heavy (even the 'light' moisturiser. Im quite poor so need cheap tips.
I know I need to drink more water and exercise more and Im starting with that. I also have blackheads all even my chin sad
Any advice welcome, Im desperate!

This sounds like a situation that needs the oil cleansing method! Google it. Cheap and has had an amazing effect on my similar skin. I use jojoba and castor oil mixed.

My skin went a bit like that after my pregnancies only add in senstive into the mix.

I use trilogy rose hip oil and it really really really helped. You'll probably think its a bit pricy but it lasts ages and I promise I would not recommend if I hadn't found it to be exceptionally good.

Plus they'are vg on the freebies, sometimes full size stuff. Last time I bought I got a full size eye cream (which is pretty useless but hey it was free!)

You can also get it on amazon with discounts fairly often.

Tip, warm your face first with a warm flannel or som such. SKin will absorb the product much better if it is slightly damp.
