Dry skin on eyebrows

Hi , I suffer from slightly dry skin on my face, mainly around the nose and chin but my eyebrows are the worst.
They get all flaky and I was wondering if I should use a different cream on this area ?

Re: Dry skin on eyebrows

This sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. This is a type of eczema which is made worst by a yeast in the environment. Try a shampoo on the scalp which contains ketoconazole. Keep skincare on the face simple and hydrating and speak to your GP about a mild anti-inflammatory cream.
