So, I read some blogs and found that Cetaphil is a miracle moisturizer....
IT IS! On top of it (when it dries I apply my gloves in a bottle) and irritation is null and void.
I finally dont feel as though a fisherman scaled me and threw me back into the water
Today is the end of DAY 5! Whoo-HOO....
UPDATE: nothing new...
No new pimples, just irritated skin.
With this skin being so red, I am relaly avoiding social events. I am only going to the movies tonight, because it is DARK!!!!
For sun prtection I am using Neutrogena's HELIOPLEX 70. It has cut down on my sunburn.
I got a message from someone who follows my blog, and they asked if I was "of color" meaning ethnic.
YES!!!! I am sorry I did not mention that before. I am an African-America woman. If you are Af-Am and thinking of using this product, please do not be discouraged due to reports of burning skin and highly irritated skin. It is doing the trick so far. I have had a real sunburn(it was painful) before and Retin-A is nothing in comparison (TRUST ME) !
I was concerned about using retin-a (the redness and scarring that could potentially develop) on my skin tone. I am pretty pleased that retin-a has not left me scarred. I am using the Obagi system which is really great for ethnic skin (so I have heard). If you are a woman of color and are using retin-a, talk to your dermatologist about the obagi system. It is pricey but I have never read or heard a negative review.
