I keep trying facial moisturizers (even body moisturizers) and they're all burning my face (and since I burn from next to no light, I'm chalking this conundrum up to something Lupus related.) Has anybody else come across a similar situation and, if so, which products work w/o irritation?
At one point I was thinking of buying an anti-aging (or repair the signs of aging...whatever they're called, lol) facial moisturizer to use on my face, upper chest and hands, but nearly all of them say that due to AHAs and like ingredients they can cause--and here's a euphemism--"a slight tingling or burning sensation, or possibly temporary reddening of the skin which should lessen..." which may mean having to space out using it more or discontinuing use altogether.
Optimally, as I'm turning 38 in a little over a month, I'd like to find something that doesn't hurt/tingle or burn, yet still moisturizes away those few fine lines Besides, living in the desert people don't age so much as turn into living, walking people-jerky, so I'd like to avoid that as well
Thanks so much!
P.s. Of the more or less natural products I've checked out--the Say Yes to Carrots line, Kiss My Face, Burt's Bees and home remedies/recipes, the active ingredients I'm seeing are mainly: Aloe (which doesn't do enough on its own,) Calendula--aka Marigold mixed with the oil from a capsule of Primrose carried in Jojoba, Blueberries and sometimes Papaya.
(I wonder if there's a "pale as a ghost" or vampire or a wolf/"lupus" smiley someplace to find and use here since I'm so intensely dark-dependent these days....)
