along with what she has suggested, can I suggest that you look into niacinamide, n acetyl glucosamine, or oat beta glucans?
These help heal the skin. Also, like she suggested, try using a thin layer of yogurt with s. thermophilus as the first ingredient (chobani ?greek? plain!)
i also highly highly recommend sun protection especially against short length uva rays. try the anthelios spf 15 by la roche posay. i don't recommend other roche posay because the higher spf's have acohol denat...which i think dries out our skin. (these contain the best uva protectors...mexoryl) you can find this on amazon or any other online beauty store. try to find the cheaper kinds.
or u could also try l'oreal uv perfect sunscreen (asian kind for women). i know it's for women but it doesn't matter. (this contains mexoryl and tinosorb) you can find this product on amazon.
your skin is already compromised and the sun will just erase ur progress and further damage ur skin.
so please, most important, invest in a good active topical....perhaps eat healthy, eat flax seed (i read oral flax seed reduces trans epidermal water loss aka TEWL), and avoid the sun as much as possible.
let us know how you progress and God bless.
