I am concerned that what I am about to ask is going to make me sound like a racist a**hole.
That is entirely NOT my intention. I am seriously concerned about something and I need some assistance. Please help Internets!!
(But I apologize in advance if what I am about to ask makes me a douchewaffle. (And in fact, if you feel I am being a racist in the asking, please tell me, cause I really, really don't mean to be.))
I need help with Lana's skin.
Her skin is so unlike my skin. I'm afraid I'm really screwing it up.
The skin on her arms and legs gets quite dry, but we are keeping it soft and smooth with Eucerin or St. Ives Intensive Healing lotion several times a week.
But her FACE! Her poor face...I know I'm doing something wrong and the situation seems to be getting worse.
She has two extremely dry spots on her cheeks, and it's getting to the point that the skin on her cheeks looks several shades lighter than the skin on the rest of her face.
For a while I was putting my moisturizing lotion on her face, but she complained that it stung and it wasn't helping. So, I've been alternating putting BioOil and Vitamin E Oil on her face every day, and while it looks slightly better with this treatment, it still looks dry and the texture of her cheeks is...I don't know how to describe it - it's not bumpy, but it doesn't feel like healthy skin, it doesn't feel like the skin on the rest of her face.
Is there something I can get that is specifically made for Asian skin?
Please help! She does swim nearly every day, often for hours at a time. We put sunscreen all over her, and I'm wondering if the sunscreen is making things worse. Or the chlorine. Or a combination. I don't know.
