How to cure from dry spots on face ?

Hello Doctor , I am female, 26 years old. I moved from Miami to New Jersey a year ago and since then I noticed that I have some very dry spots on my face . I am using hydrating creams but the problem is not solved. I scrub my face and dry skin peels but the problem still exists. I usually drink lot of water. I am really worried about this problem. Thank you!

Hi,thanks for query.The environment plays a important role in skin hydration.what ever you are doing is good and please continue it.Too much of dry weather is a problem.In miami the weather is hot but humid due to sea.In new jersey the weather obviously is not same.Keep washing you face couple of times in day,do not scrub too much.Have more of fruits in diet that will help.bye.

Pediatrician Dr. Suryakanta Baraha's  Response
hello,
During the day, hydrate and protect ur face with a protective and moisturizing cream. At night, repair them with creams formulated from glycolic acid—a must for improving skin texture and tone.Always apply sunscreen before going outdoors.Avoid soaps and cleansers that leave the skin on your face feeling tight or dry.harsh facial cleansers and exfoliants may do more harm than good.eating a balanced diet, drink plenty of water to keep your skin plump and hydrated. Select orange fruits and vegetables, including carrots.Avoid sweets, caffeine and alcohol.dont rub the skin.
Use bath oils and moisturizers at least daily. you can consult adermatologist also. take care

I have 3 questions. 1) How do I get rid of a severely painful/bruised/infected ingrown hair? 2) I have a handful of ?postules? (basically zits that I can feel under the skin on my face, they just look like bumps and have no colored tip) I get white out of them if I get annoyed enough with them being there and squeeze them, but they never go away. Can I/how do I get rid of these? 3) I break out on occasion (not often but I am ocd and tend to try to get rid of any imperfections I spot without being able to just ignore them). Lately and most often an attempt at popping what is clearly a white head (or is working on becoming one) leaves behind a hard black swollen spot. Am I correct in assuming that this is probably me messing up and causing the zit to pop under my skin? Therein leaving the scab/dried blood just under the surface of my skin? If not then what is it and either way how can I get rid of them?
