Feels like I can ask this question here: does anybody else get dandruff in their eyebrows?? I have fair sensitive skin so maybe it's residue from my moisturizer but every now and again I rub/scratch my eyebrows and get flakes! I don't wear much foundation anymore so it's not that.

(Not asking for medical advice, just shared experiences.  :) )

*raises hand*

I have seriously dry skin (and am apparently in the middle of the Never Ending Outbreak Of Zits due to hormones) and I am constantly having to de-flake my eyebrows.

I used to.  I also used to get it on my lower legs: any scratching, and the air would fill with flakes. :-[

Since becoming menopausal, my skin seems to be so much less dry, and I haven't thought about it for ages...

Unlike the zits. :(  Never had them before, but my face is making up for lost time. >:(

Raises hand - I 've noticed that the last couple of weeks. I'm wondering if it's because of the dry weather we've been having? At any rate, I'm being especially mindful about brushing it out in the mornings before work.

This time of year my skin just gets really dry. It's used to the super humid Florida weather and doesn't like this less humid weather. I get the flakey eyebrows (sometimes ears) and just generally itchy dry skin. I found the best way for me to combat this is to slather myself with fractured coconut oil right after I get out of the shower, while I am still dripping wet, then gently pat myself dry/more let myself air dry. Helps super seal in the moisture.

I'm assuming its a combo of dry air and the nasal spray for allergies, but I keep getting what feel like cuts (? but sealed?) inside my nose.  It's awful.

I can't use Flonase because I get terrible nosebleeds from it. I sleep with a vaporizer on and vaseline the inside of my nose when it's loke that. If I don't I'm waking up in a bloodbath.

No bloodbath yet - have been using vasline/chapstick to moisturize, and ordered a tiny vaporizer/humidifier to see if it helps.

Stupid question crosspost - do the essential oil diffusers have the same basic function, since you put water in them?

Can you use a moisturizing spray after the allergy spray, help keep it moist in there?

I grew up in the DC area, so I'm pretty well bioengineered for humidity. These Colorado winters just keep killing me, and this year is awful - I swear, if it were any drier, I'd be a shriveled husk on the ground.

I don't know much about them, but it seems like it would be too little water to make a real difference. I'd stick with a humidifier.

When DH & I lived in a house with a wood stove, we'd just keep a giant pot full of water (and some cinnamon - smelled wonderful!) on top of the stove. Whenever that stove was hot, the water would boil, and help keep us from drying out.

I get that feeling too. I've been using a saline spray and humidifiers. (I found an adorable little personal humidifier that you put a pop bottle full of water on and I use it at my desk at work. It helps.)

It's been so cold lately that my nose has been very dried out, but luckily no nose bleeds - yet!
I have a chronic case of foot-in-mouth disease.

My leg is infected, again. This time, though, it turned an amazing shade of a dark green/black color. It never did that, it usually just smelled and leaked really bad. Anyway, it's starting to heal, and the angry skin is the red color of a really nice steak. The infection that is hanging out in the goopy mess has turned the same green as dried snot. The girls who take care of my leg are some times amused by my description, and other times, not so much.

The kittens have somehow acquired a squirrel tail. I'm fairly sure the mom or dad cat got it for them.

Bonus: they like to put it in the pool so it floats. Um, I always think something got in the pool enclosure and needs rescuing.  :o

My back and shoulders are a mass of painful cystic acne right now.

I can't even pop them. :'(
