4 Problems Only People With Really Dry Skin Will Understand

Most skincare product advertisements mention its usefulness against oily skin, claiming its power against acne and blackheads. Many prefer dry skin and constantly comment on how lucky these people are. But as someone with extremely dry skin, life isn't always easy for us. In fact, here are four of the most annoying cons of having dry skin.

1. Getting static-y simply by moving

If you live in an place with carpet, be ready to constantly have hair stuck to your face and clothes stuck to you. Want to layer two shirts for more warmth in the winter? Do it at your own risk. It's hard to look good when your hair is stuck to your face 24/7 even with layers of lotion and hair oil.

2. Experiencing the Sahara desert on your face every time you use face wash

There are face washes suitable for all skin types, but for dry skin, sometimes the face wash still does not work. It does a great job cleaning the pores and all that, but is it worth the inevitable skin peeling off afterwards? Even with moisturizer, your face still feels like it's falling off every night.

3. Lotioning multiple times a day out of necessity

Ideally, you'd be able to use those scented body lotions from Bath and Body Works or any lotion procured from anywhere. Unfortunately for people with dry skin, just regular lotion is not enough. Even intensively hydrating lotions from regular brands don't work well at all. Instead, we're stuck with more expensive, dermatologist recommended intense-healing-for-extremely-dry-skin products that leave you feeling like you literally had to lather on oil to stay moisturized.

4. Getting shocked on everything

By everything, I mean really, everything. Water faucet? Check. A light switch? Definitely. Who knew it was even possible to get shocked by a computer THROUGH a backpack? Definitely not me before having that happen to me multiple times in a row. Want to wear that cute and warm fuzzy sweater this winter? Rethink that decision my friend, because you'll end up actually generating electricity on everything you touch.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
