I am working a job that has me (an A) walking around mid afternoon in the hot sun so I got my Kiss My Face SPF all natural spray and use it liberally and wear a long sleeve white shirt and a hat.

Well I use Pears Soap because I thought the thyme oil would never affect me. But now the thyme oil is starting to be a little strong I think on delicate tissues, but I can't find the one without thyme oil in it.

In the meantime the SPF 50 and drinking pomegranite juice has kept my face from burning, but underneath my shirt one shoulder is peeling anyway, and my Nonnie nose developed some odd little patch of thickened dead skin that came off later, and now my nose is still sore for 3 days in the same place, but my nose is not sunburned the way we would think of sunburn. Its very tender, though.

The sides of my face are starting to develop little patches of thickened dead skin even tho I exfoliate every other day, but the rest of my face isn't sore.

Am I still burning???? Or is this the trace of thyme oil after I get into the sun?

PS: I use Pears as my shampoo too. It lathers well and leaves soft nice hair.

I have very sensitive skin & the effect of certain oils on areas of it will be a kind of thickening in patches & then a peeling of skin... It sounds to me like the thyme oil (or something) is aggravating yours...

Make sure the sunscreen you use has a high amount of zinc in it.  I'm not an expert but the ones I read about a lot are Coppertone Sensitive (has 14% zinc) and Devita (has 18% zinc).

You may want to hold off on the exfoliating until your skin heals a bit.

I'd suggest putting sunscreen on your shoulders before putting on the shirt, as an added layer of protection.

You might want to stop using the pears soap on sensitive skin, at least until your skin settles down. What other soaps can you find locally? I've even heard of people using honey as a face wash, though I've never tried it personally. That might be something to try immediately, since you probably already have it in the house.

Even something like ivory soap may be a good choice if you can't find anything gentle without irritating additives in local stores. Since ivory is rather drying, follow your bath/shower with any compliant oil as a body oil while your skin is still damp.

Put sun lotion on your shoulders, neck, chest and your arms and hands - a white shirt only gives so much protection.  It can probably be less than factor 50 but get some and apply religiously.
