    I just remembered that CeraVe do a Sunscreen I might try. I already have their moisterising cream (although I've barely used that).

    Because the wavelength is shorter and less invasive, there don't have to be any gaps in the treatment sites and the downtime is apparently shorter.

    Could you clarify what you mean when you said "the redness retreated completely". You mean the redness resulting from the treatment, right?

    Are you using Niacinamide? This should help with your compromised skin barrier, as well as lighten your skin over time. The Ordinary do a product which I use.

    Most of them seem to emit UV, which is a no-no.
