Dry, spotty skin. Recommendations please!

I've always had slightly dry skin on my cheeks, but since our second round of IVF, I've got terribly dry, flakey skin and recently have had a ton of spotty bastards on my cheeks in the dry patches. I'm certain that the zits are due to blockage of pores from the dryness and flakiness.

I currently use a facial wash for dry skin, and recently swapped from no 7 dry skin day cream to Olay, but the Olay use coincides with the breakouts, so have stopped and gone back to no 7, but even that doesn't completely combat the dryness.

Any recommendations for products or skincare regimes which will help would be very gratefully received.

I have a similar problem. I'm using a combination of this and rosehip oil plus a zinc supplement and it seems to be working.

Thankyou for your suggestion. I've ordered some, hoping that it'll make a difference. So sick of having awful skin.

Have you tried Pixi glow?

No I haven't, what is it?

Marking place for advice

It's an acid cleanser. Really good. I think you can get it from M&S about £18.
