Dry Skin


Hello Ladies

Has anyone else experienced really dry skin? It doesn't matter how much cream I use my skin gets so dry! My hands are like an old womans. I can't put on foundation as its all just cracks my skin is so flaky.

My lips too are extremely chapped!

Thanks for any advice given in advance!!XXX

Hi

Yes, I had this too. You may need to up your fluid intake, especially if you've had lots of sickness. Try drinking more water, that should help.

I have it! My face is a nightmare, how u can have awful spots and peeling dry skin beats me!!!! and i have big red blotches of dry skin all over my body. I think i drink enough, so just thought it might be a symptom of pregnancy.

Drinking more water should definitely help you loads!

I found a great body lotion here in Montreal ... don't know where you're from and if it's available in your area, but it's Oatmeal and Shea Butter by St-Yves. It's doing wonders for my skin, especially in this cold/dry winter weather

Good luck!

Thanks Ladies

I have been trying to keep my intake up but its really hard specially when I was suffering with Hyperemesis. although I'm kind of over that its still hard with constantly being sick.

Yes we get St Yeves (think they call it St Ives here probably wrong I don't know lol) so I'll will ask my MIL to get me that when she goes to town next as I cant go anywhere at the moment.
