Welcome to healthcare magic.

I understand that you are having dry skin.

It could be secondary to the thyroid problem which you have.

Use a good moisturizer containing colloidal oatmeal like Aveeno.

Bathe with lukewarm water as hot water will strip away the oils form the skin.

Use a soap free cleansing liquid like Cetaphil for bathing.

Apply moisturizer within 3 minutes of bath so as to trap the moisture and repeat often.

Avoid chemical peels as they tend to make the face drier.

Hope this helps you.

Take care.
