Suggest skin care routine for dry skin

I am having issues figuring out the best skin care routine for my skin. I use Origins products and have been pretty satisfied. However, I just want to know how I should be using these products. I just have an issue on one of my cheeks (from trying to do too much to it) so I just want to get it back to normal. My skin has been going back and forth due to hormones from pregnancy but now I am done having kids. It was dry while I was pregnant so I could use a moisturizer for dry skin but after I had my baby I started breaking out so now I've switched to a moisturizer for combination skin and I wash my face at night and in the morning. But that seems to be drying it out so should I just wash at night and splash with water in the morning then use the rest of my skin care routine?

Hello,

I have gone through your complete query and understand your concern. In my patients with your kind of problem I suggest to apply a combination of emollients with humectant.

I use urea based humectant and petrolatum or lanoline based moisturizer.

All the best.
