Skincare in Your 40s

2014-05-31 18.02.30I’ve noticed since turning 40 a rather rapid decline in the quality of my skin.

Pigmentation Anyone?

Dear Dr Naomi,
I am turning a certain age in 3 months. Now, while I don’t want to go on and on about how horrified I am to suddenly reach said age, I do want to be cute again. In a nutshell: my skin has changed – my girlish freckles have now turned to blotches, and I have some unsightly pigmentation on my upper lip. Plus, there is a new acquition of broken capillaries and redness on the cheek (I don’t believe I ordered these either). Gone are the carefree days of looking fresh as a daisy wearing a smidgen of creme blush and lippie. Sigh. (See photo – I was 24). Youth is so wasted on the young isn’t it?  I want that skin back – the skin that I failed to appreciate then. What can you do?
Desperate and grasping at straws,
