Horrible skin

(1 Post)

I have very senaitive, red, spotty and dry skin. Kind of flaky around my nose and very red in places. Then I occasionally (well quite frequently) get spots on my chin.
I have to be very careful about what I use because most products make my skin very sore.
I use Clinque Take off the day cleansing balm followed by Avène Extremely gentle cleansing lotion. Then I use La Rosay Posay Cicaplast to moisturise as at night I use Clarins Blue Orchid.
No matter what I do my skin is still red but I can manage that with make up and when it's really bad a big hat.
But lately it's been very flaky around my nose and as you can imagine exfoliating is painful.
I was using Clearasil super fruit cleansing pads but I can't find them anywhere.
Is there anything else I can use.
I've tried pixi and nip and fab but they all make my skin hurt.
So what can I use. I can't apply make up to flaky skin ahhh

Thanks for reading and sorry I'm such a drama queen
