Suffering from dry facial skin? Tips for dull, dry patchy skin

Puffiness on the right side of my face with lifeless dull and dry looking skin.

This happend after a cellulitis infection on the right side of my face few years back.

Firstly there was a sebaceous cyst formed on my right face and then it was infected, infection was treated but a left a deformity.

A painless soft lump like sebaceous cyst is still under
the skin of my right cheek. I want to remove it.
what should I do now to treat the deformity and
cyst removal? Please help.


Thank you for your question regarding dry dull skin and deformities due to cyst removal.

In reference to dry dull skin problems, do you exfoliate regularly?

Exfoliation is very important to help shed dead cells which can not only clog/enlarge pores and prevent moisturizers from getting absorbed properly, but give your overall complexion a dull appearance.

There are two basic types of exfoliation methods that are useful:

– The first is manual exfoliation. This can range from something as simple as using a wash to making your own homemade cleansing exfoliation scrubs.

You can easily do this by mixing baking soda (or sugar) with water to make a paste. You can also add a drop or two of olive oil if you skin is very dry.

Just start off with two or three tablespoons of sugar and add a teaspoon or two of water. Add more or less until you get a paste like consistency. Then add a drop or two of olive oil for dry skin.

Mix this up and massage over your face and neck…avoiding the eye area.

You can even massage this over your chest, elbows and knees to eliminate dry skin patches. Rinse well and apply your favorite moisturizer.


second is hydroxy/fruit acid serums. Using a cotton ball, all the serum over your face and neck.

Hydroxy acids can help further remove dead cells and debris by removing the "glue" that holds dead skin cells together and increase cell turnover.

Increasing cell turnover helps bring fresh newer cells to the surface giving your complexion a beautiful healthy glow.

NOTE: When first starting – start gently and use a small amount to see how your skin reacts as everyone is different.

Same with using the scrubs, try a small area first to make sure there is no skin irritation.

Also, don't use both methods in the same day until you've tried them out separately and know how your skin will react.

Here is more information on the importance of exfoliating and polishing the skin. As Dr. Lancer, a dermatologist stated on the Oprah Winfrey show, it's important to polish, wash, and hydrate your complexion if you want it to look healthy.

This method can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. And depending on the strength of the hydroxy acid, it can also help lighten dark spots and imperfections.

You stated that you had a sebaceous cyst removed from the right side of your face, but you still have a lump in that area? Have you contacted the physician who performed this procedure and told him about this?

Perhaps he didn't remove the cyst completely or another one has developed.

Unfortunately, the only suggestion I can offer here is to see another physician or plastic surgeon to evaluate why there is deformity and lumpiness in that area.

There could be other issues going on besides the cyst. I hope this information helps.
