Question
Why does my face feel dry when I wake up in the morning? I can see fine lines around side of nose/cheeks. Currently I'm using the Clinique moisturizer, sometimes combined with Kora Organics face oil (but it feels too oily for me). I use a very gentle vitamin c cleanser and apply vitamin c serum in the morning, and I exfoliate once a week.

    What skin type do you have? And age? Vit C is an exfoliator and it dries the skin a lot. Depending on your skin type and age there are different things you can do. Either add Hyaluronic acid into your routine or if your skin is dry you need a richer/nourishing cream after the vit c serum. I personally like Corean sleeping masks. My skin is combination and I'm 40. Hope it helps

    Try mixing the face oil and moisturizer together! That yields good results for me 🙂

    Which Clinique moisturizer? If it contains silicones or alcohol, it can sometimes be drying depending on your skin.

    I think you may need a more hydrating moisturizer. I also find rosehip oil to be really nourishing.

    Which Clinique moisturizer are you using? You probably need one that's a bit more rich/hydrating. This is my favorite cream for the wintertime.
