    Hi,

    Well, as long as you are enjoying you job; I see the side-effects as something we can deal with!

    My first piece of advice is rather simple. When you wake up in the morning, wash your face with a moisturising face wash, and something that light and simple (I recommend 'Jurlique for Men' products). Once finished, moisturise your face well. Use a product that is light, water-y, and hydrating.

    Secondly, I would also recommend you exfoliate when you shower; it helps get rid of dead skin. Also, if possible, use a shower brush when washing; it also helps with getting rid of dead skin.

    Also, drink a lot of water...it helps with hydrating the skin and body. Since you work in a relatively 'hot' enviroment, you get very dehyrated easily!

    Lastly, go see your GP. He/she will have advice about how to solve your problem.

    Hope this has helped!

    One of the best and cheapest creams (and healing too) is Nivea Cream.

    I'd like to add that in the Nivea for Men's range they have some very good products, too. A very mild one is the Face Cream for sensitive skin. Good and inexpensive.
