I have dry skin. The most dry skin you've ever come across, particularly on my face. I need a facial moisturizer--one with superpowers, preferably. There are no issues with combination skin, breakouts, or anything but DRY. Dry and flaky. I've been to a dermatologist about it, and he gave it some fancy eczema classification, and gave me some extremely expensive prescription steroid-based stuff, as well as something else that also did not work.
This is ONLY happening on my face and scalp. My face gets so dry that the skin begins to scale, even--how's that for a lovely image? My face is always a different color than the rest of me, with or without makeup. Makeup is a problem, because while I need a foundation to even out the blotchiness, foundation and powder merely serve to exhibit the dry, flaky skin on my face to an extreme extent. Exfoliating works a little, but can't remove all the dry stuff, and causes more redness. HELP ME. If you have a serious facial moisturizer, PLEASE share your find with me. At this point, I don't care if it contains sheep placentas or ground echidna penii; I am DESPERATE.
What do you get in return, you ask? Well, I make sure you're aware that Aaron McGruder's new book, All the Rage: The Boondocks Past and Present, is out as of today.
I added it to my my own Amazon wish-list, but the chances that I'll be able to stand not buying it for myself before anyone else has a chance to are slim to none. Do yourself a favor, and pick up a copy for yourself and one for a friend. The price is right, and the time is right. Revel in the genius of McGruder. Heck, pick up a copy of A Right to Be Hostile: The Boondocks Treasury while you're at it.
Also, the second season of The Boondocks animated series is finally airing, after a 2-year hiatus...and it is awesome.
