One of the most delicate areas on the face is the skin around the nose. Here the skin tends to dry out more due to the coolness, time spent indoors surrounded by artificial heat, and rubbing handkerchiefs there. And besides not being pretty to look at, it could also hurt. So, how is it treated?
Beware of harsh ingredients in creams. Whenever you have irritated or dehydrated skin, it’s a good idea to cut down on harsh ingredients so as to not exacerbate the problem. If you use retinoids, you may want to hold out for several days until dry skin has improved.

Use a soothing cream. The lower the outside temperatures, the warmer you will need to set the thermostat inside. Together, these two extreme climates create a highly dehydrating environment for your skin. The soothing cream helps reduce stress-related irritation and redness. They also help strengthen the natural protective barrier and improve the irritation threshold.
Don’t over-moisturize (or over-cleanse). When it comes to skincare, you need to learn not to overdo it. If you’ve been exfoliating a lot, thinking this is the solution to get rid of flaking, try exfoliating less to give your skin some time to repair. If you wash your face too often, the skin around your nose can dry out, so reduce that too by washing no more than twice a day and using a mild cleanser in the process.
Use a humidifier. Another way to satisfy dry skin around the nose is to make sure there is not enough moisture in the skincare products you use and in the air around you. The best way to increase the hydration of your home is to add a humidifier.

Have a cup of green tea. You are what you eat, and when it comes to your skin, you need to be very careful with your choices. Aim for antioxidant-rich foods, including green tea, dark chocolate, and turmeric. They will keep dry skin at bay in the long run.
