I have very dry skin and I suffer from breakouts which seem to happen the drier my skin gets! This was a very confusing concept for me as most people associate breakouts with oily skin. My beauty therapist suggested using skin hydrating masque under my Skin Smoothing Cream (also a dermalogica product) and I now swear by it. You just use a very very thin layer under your day or night cream. It’s great to have a masque you can double up as a treatment in extreme cases.
