Middle age skin is more difficult to care for than teenage skin! It gets dry in some areas, oily in others and sometimes it's dry and oily in the very same places. Zits and wrinkles? What's normal for middle age skin?
So---I'm curious about everyone's skin care routines. Have they changed much over the years? Do you see a dermatologist?
I'm very fair---kinda rocking the middle-age vampire look---and I always wear sunscreen and have used Retin-A for years without any problems. Don't smoke, don't tan and I don't have many wrinkles. Never used to have to wear moisturizer but the last year or so I need it---and then I get oily and it starts all over again. I have allergies to many cosmetics so I don't dare use drugstore makeup or even many department store lines.
<sigh> I suppose it's time to make an appointment to see a dermatologist, huh? Getting my toe fixed this week, mammogram the next week, gyno the week after---all I need is a colonoscopy and I guess I'm ready for middle age!
I'll make a derm appointment Tuesday. Phooey!
