... in college and it is really affecting my self esteem. ive tried the creams ive tried apple cider vinegar, coocnut oil, sea salt, baking soda, vitamin e but i still have flaking and shiny skin on my forhead, cheeks and nose that is impossible to cover with makeup because it just looks cracked and horrible. i would really appreciate any advice on what to try natural or otherwise and how to remove flakes so i can atleast feel confident enough to deal with day to day life. alex
