Hello from LJMom

I'm 59 years old, with very sensitive skin, fine lines, spots of hyperpigmentation, and seem prone to milia and enlarged oil glands if I use the wrong products. When I was tested by the allergist for environmental allergens, I tested "allergic" to all common environmental allergens.

I need a high SPF due to living in a sunny place, but I'm allergic to the harshest chemical sunscreens (I once needed steroids to fight the terrible case of hives I got from Neutrogena Shield Face 110 with Avobenzone (3%), Homosalate (15%), Octisalate (5%), Octocrylene (10%), Oxybenzone (6%)) and I don't want a white face, nor something too shiny nor something that moves around on my face all day.

What skincare routine would you recommend?

Hello @ljmom! Yeah, allergies are a challenge - many products contain frequent allergens unfortunately...

Also, our resource section for sensitive skin might be helpful (sorry for the navigation, you'd need to scroll down to see it - we hope to improve it soon 😊): https://whatsinmyjar.com/resources/
