Super-Dry Skin

Hello, my name is Naomi, I am 18 and have a problem with super-dry skin. My cheeks and neck are red and my arms are kind of bumpy with red blotches. I don't know what to do to rehydrate my skin and I don't want to go out and buy any old product as my skin is very sensitive. Please could you give me some advice...

Hydrate with baby products, they are often based on almond oil, and will not irritate your skin. It sounds like you have a lot of dead skin accumulating on your arms, and you should try exfoliating. Buy yourself a flannel mitten and an exfoiliating scrub from e.g. the Body Shop. In the shower, moisten the mitten and use it to apply the scrub to your skin in gentle, circular movements. Afterwards, be sure to moisturise your skin well, with baby lotion. As your skin is very sensitive, I would however, suggest that you visit a dermatologist.
