She may be one of Hollywood’s most glamorous leading ladies, but Courteney Cox still has beauty problems of her own. “I have the dryest skin,” she laments on, where she serves as the site’s new beauty columnist. “I know I need to drink more water.” But until she starts seeing results from H2O, the actress has a few tricks up her sleeve. “[Something] that really helps is to take a loofah or a thistle brush,” she suggests, recommending one made from palm fibers like Earth Therapeutics Purest Palm Body Brush ($7.20). She says to use it on dry skin before taking a shower. “I brush upwards and it hurts,” she warns. “Then I shower.” After the shower and while she’s still wet, Cox puts on Aura Cacia sweet almond oil ($13.65). “Don’t rub it off with your towel, just pat your skin or let it dry naturally,” she advises. If at this point your skin is still very dry, the self-proclaimed “coconut nut” says to apply an oil like “Pure Fiji coconut milk and honey ($24). Yes, you will be pretty oily for a bit, but if you have the time to let it soak in, you’ll feel great,” she says. Just one word of warning: “Watch out when you’re wearing silk shirts!” Tell us: How do you deal with dry skin? –Caroline Slutsky

I have super dry skin. If your face gets too dry over night, go for made from Earth’s Olive Night Creme. It works. It is not sticky which I love! so I recommend this for people who do not want dry skin.

about Mac, studio fix fluid fuoidatnon broke me out so bad I had to go back to my dermatologist.My tip for clear skin to you is to use a muslin cloth when you wash your face to remove your cleanser because it gently exfoliates your skins dead cells off which can stop the dead skin cells causing acne. Take Care xx
