Do you use all that PM stuff at once? Jojoba, covered by emu oil, covered by AHA and then petroleum jelly? That's kind of a lot for your skin to handle, in my opinion. I'm not a doctor but mixing up a lot of products always aggravated things for me. Emu oil is really moisturizing - why not use just that and the AHA at night? Do you really need the other stuff?
