Redness And Flakiness Around Nose

Question:


What can I do to get rid of the redness and flakiness around my nose?


Camille's Answer:

Hi Pattie. It sounds like you have some irritation around your nose. Do you rub or blow your nose a lot?

I would usually recommend that you exfoliate your skin to help get rid of the flakiness but because of the irritation I'm going to say that you should use either some pure aloe gel or organic Shea butter on the area.

It will help to heal the skin from the irritation and help the flakiness at the same time.

The one thing you don't want to do at the moment is use makeup on the area. It will only collect in the rough flaky skin and making it look worse.

Keep the area well moisturized and irritation free.
