Can Lycogel cover very dry scaly areas of facial skin?
Lycogel will give you excellent coverage of dry and scaly areas as well as a soothing hydrating effect. However there is no make-up on the planet that can hide dryness. So depending on why the area is dry and scaly Lycogel can work in 2 ways. If your skin is dry and scaly but not as a result of a procedure, then you need to look at your skincare products and routine. This should be very quick to rectify and then your skin will be in a balanced and a beautiful condition, well hydrated without being oily and combined with your everyday Lycogel application, you should have a lifetime of good, normal and smooth looking skin.
If the area is dry and scaly due to a procedure which you have had done like laser or peels, then Lycogel will cover that but it will also speed up the removal of dry, flaky skin so that your skin can go back to smooth texture as soon as possible.
