I know how you feel but you MUST stop looking in the mirror first of all. Then you need to find out what is causing your skin to dry out so much, if it's acne meds then you need to back away from them so much. For example use it every other night or every 3rd night instead of every night. To add moisture to your face, try steaming it. Make sure the water you boil isn't too hot. I usually take it off the stove right before it starts to boil then stick a towel over my head, don't get too close though. What helps me a lot is thinking that obsessing over my face doesn't make it any better. Try reading a good book or renting a movie to get your mind off of it.
