So, I am going out for my dad's birthday soon with him, and I'm probably going to wear makeup, since I don't get a chance to wear it often. I'm usually stuck inside due to my illness and pain.
The problem is, whenever I put on foundation, you can see flakes of my skin, espeically along my forehead. I have a pretty basic skincare routine using Lush products, I exfoliate Tuesday and Friday, and moisturize afterwards, as well as on any days where my skin feels pretty dry. So exfoliating is 1-2 times a week, and moisturizing is 2-4 times a week. I also use hydrating witch hazel toner - dilated with water- 3 times a week. I use a normal cleanser 2 times a week. My acne is a lot better than it ever used to be, but the flakey skin on my forehead just won't go away!
I have 4 different brands of foundation, and it's the same with all of them, and I can even usually see the skin without makeup, but it's brought out even more when I wear foundation.

I'd moisturise after you cleanse your face morning and night, and if it's still dry tone down the exfoliation to once a week and see if that helps.
Also make sure your using products specific to your skin type - my skin is oily in my tzone but my brows and sides get so so dry so I use a different moisturiser on those areas1
