I've fully believed for the past 23 years of my life that I had oily skin. My nose shines bright on an average day, let alone bringing in summertime moisture and humidity, not to mention the sweat slicks the grace my face three months of the year. But recently, after an enlightening trip to the dermatologist, I've learned that apparently, I have super dry skin. Who would've thought? Certainly not me, that's for sure. So here I am, recently moved to the great snowy north in January with a face that's drier than the desert. Not to mention I absolutely hate shopping for skincare because it's more expensive than filling up my car with gas. $30 for some skin cream? I think not.

People of the internet, I desperately need your help. I try it all, face masks, "hydrating" cleansers, moisturizers that are marketed towards dry skin. I even bought a CVS brand moisturizing oil today, I'm at my most desperate state yet! I just want to put on makeup and not see all my dry patches, hell at this point I just want the skin around my eyes to stop burning when I go outside for more than one minute. Does anyone in the world have any tips or recommendations for an affordable cure to my infliction? I'm on my hands and knees begging the world  for help, I'm just a girl standing in front of the internet asking for skincare help. 

Let me know if you've found anything that works for you in the comments, I will be eagerly awaiting any replies. In the meantime, I'm off to do yet another hydrating face mask. Cheers!
