i have a couple of small mildly flaky areas on my cheeks near my nose. Can anyone recommend anything to help sort these out?

the one caveat is that I don't want to change my cleanser - I have acne (thanks, PCOS!) and it's taken me years to find the right cleanser. Everything else is up for grabs though.

Eucerin 5% urea cream. I have acne-prone skin too. If they persist, see a GP as sometimes there is an underlying issue that requires medication.

A couple of nights a week I apply some Superdrug Glycolic Overnight Peel. It sorts out any dry patches really well. Just splodge it on last thing before bed.

It's a gentle introduction to glycolic acid.
