for some odd reason I get this often,
my upper lip area, nose to my top lip is often dry, scaly, and rough.
I use Nivea Natural Tone all over but I esp use Jergens Ultra Healing for Dry Skin on this area.
What am I doing wrong? What am I not doing?
This makes me so self conscious :/

I seem to have this problem in winter, when my nose gets runny. Maybe yours is a little different, but what I do and seems to work is:

-Regularly moisture there with lotion during the day.
-Put Carmex (which I use on my lips, too) on night, when I don’t have to leave the house all shiny, lol. I apply it on my lips all the way up to my nose. It smells a little strong, but I’ve gotten used to it and it seems to help to have it sit on there all night.

I think all you can really do is regularly moisturize it as well as you can. Unless somebody knows some great secret cure— in which case, I’m curious too!

I’ve had this problem too! I don’t use Carmex on my skin because I’m acne-prone, but instead at night I use jojoba oil all over the area, then top with aloe vera gel. Jojoba is really softening and the aloe vera helps seal in moisture.

Once a week I exfoliate really gently with Peeling Day by The Face Shop (Korean brand carried by Walgreens). It’s a physical exfoliator with cellulose fibers that pick up and bind to loose skin instead of scraping like a normal exfoliator; really gentle!

Try zinc oxide. It works for me and I get flaky dry skin under my nose. It’s used for diaper rash but it works for dry skin, too!
