Not sure if it's the combo of cooler air outside and warm dry air inside, if I'm not staying hydrated enough or if one of my little samples was just not right for me. The hardest part of skin care has to be patience when something goes wrong.
I alternated between using Dermalogica's Barrier Repair and good old Aloe Vera. Still took a few days to clear up, and when I felt a tiny bit more confident (and when it was getting a little flaky) I added an exfoliant to the mix (Dermalogica's Microfoliant). At night I'd use a layer of Eminence Organic's Linden Calendula Treatment for dry/dehydrated skin and make sure my humidifier was on. I've tried to up my tea intake as it's been too chilly for my usual large glass of iced water.
