My skin has turned to the dark side.

Random areas of redness, between my eyebrows, along my eyebrows, some on my hairline, on my beard area.

The skin is red, it’s also flaky, very very flaky. Just miles of flakes. It’s like my skin is allergic to my own face!

It’s a little bit depressing and embarrassing, but not awful.

Drinking lots of water, at least 3 litres a day, lots of tea, sleeping well, creams and moisturizers and all those things haven’t helped.

I’m baffled.

Any thoughts?

Dermatitis? Possibly. Eczema? Probably not, given what I’ve learned about it, it’s not itchy or painful at all. Imminent death? Meh. Allergy to my own facial hair? Maybe, although I’ve never heard of such a thing.

Should I just shave my beard off forever? I could do that.

  1. Try using apricot face scrub? It got those things in it that feels like sand, maybe it’ll help to scrape off the skin then when you’re done scrubbing put vaseline jelly on your face while it’s wet?

  2. I get this occasionally in and around my eyebrows. Mine always happens in the winter. Comes and goes on its own. Could be the cold weather + dry heated air. (I’m assuming you’re in the northern Hemisphere.) I would try a gentle soap and maybe find a better laundry detergent and a new pillow. Think about how much face and head time you have there.

    • I’m in Australia in the middle of summer! lol But yeah, it comes and goes, but it’s worsened now. But it did start appearing in winter this year, I’m just going to buy all new bedwear! haha.
      And I should probably start washing my face with a lot more care, most of the time, I’m just like “eh, that’ll do!”.

  3. maybe go for a facial? Seriously though, have zero solution-different skin and all-but hope you get it sorted. Good luck.
