CeraVe cleanser and a moisturizer with spf is what I've been doing for a couple years. The days of my bathroom looking like a chemistry class are over and I hardly think about it. I SHOULD be using a higher spf for sure, and using it on my exposed body parts as well, but most sunscreens cause flushing and then my face sweats....and I can't handle that so I just avoid being outside. I still experiment with things though and if I find something stronger than what I'm currently using I'll switch.

I posted this in another thread....I’ve been using DHC Urumai products on my old face, and I really like it. My skin is oily and sensitive, and I can’t use anything that will irritate my eyes.

The three products, soap, clarifying lotion, and cream were $58. I use the soap with my Clarisonic. It makes super creamy suds and my skin is squeaky clean (I love that). Then I splash on the clarifying lotion and finish with the cream. I gives my skin a nice glow.

Sometimes I use a tinted moisturizer (Neutrogena) with sunscreen over it.

I've had the same experience with sunscreen on my face. I feel like it blocks my pores, then my face starts to sweat even if it's not hot. I don't go out in the sun without a visor or hat these days. Unfortunately I was raised in Florida in the 70's where we went to the beach with baby oil mixed with iodine! I got some pretty bad burns when I was younger and I didn't start using moisturizers till my 40's. I am just blessed with good genes, however I lost 40 pounds over the last 4 years and it shows in my face & neck. I plan to make an appointment with my plastic surgeon soon.

I recently purchased No. 7 intense serum that was supposed to show a noticeable difference in the lines that run from the nose to the mouth and between the eyes. Haven't noticed any difference and I've been using it for almost 2 months now. My normal routine IF I'm wearing foundation is to use serum, then moisturizer, then primer, then a moisturizing foundation and my skin still looks flaky at the end of the day despite once a week exfoliating.

Do you use chemical sunscreens or physical sunscreens? A lot of people react to the chemical sunscreens so perhaps you could look into the mineral options.
