here are the facts:
-ive been using the same jar of moisturizer after showering for a couple years now. it was recommended by a dermatologist
-the dry skin comes about after a shower, even tho I use the moisturizer
-the dry skin is on some of my forehead, my cheeks, my chin, and the part of my jaw/neck where I shave.
-this only started happening in the last month or so..
you think my moisturizer expired or something?
what should I do to get rid of the dry skin. its like flaky.
ill update if I think of anything else.

apparently lotions are good for up to three year, although SPF will have an expiry date. That being said, your skin might be changing. Mine doesn't react the same way now as it did a couple years ago. Also, did you change any soaps you use in the shower? Do you have hard water? These can all have an effect on your skin. Just be sure you moisturize immediately after your shower. The key is to trap moisture in, so wipe your face off and slap on the lotion before drying your hair!
Personally, I swear by Clinique's dramatically different lotion. The yellow stuff. It's amazing. It's a little pricey (not bad compared to other good brands, though), but a jar will last for a good year or so for me, using it every day.0
