I'd like some super-boost advice for when I go out and stand on the edge of a rugby pitch for 90 minutes in this British wintery weather supporting my son. I know that my regular products probably don't give enough protection for my dry, fair, softly lining round the eyes a bit skin. I still want to use full make up but please advise on the underneath stuff so that I can emerge as untargeted by the elements as possible.
In the winter months there is little sunburn, but there are UVA rays that can damage your skin and you will get considerable drying from the cold winter weather. Then when you go into hot, dry rooms, this will dry out your skin even more.
What you need to do is to use a daily moisturising SPF 15 UVA cream. For example, Dr Nick Lowe's Secret is Out SPF 15 UVA day cream has been shown to be highly moisturising and contain important anti-ageing ingredients. Apply this after cleansing, and then allow it to dry for two minutes and then reapply your make-up.
Don't forget to take a protective lip balm when you're standing outdoors, to stop your lips drying out and to protect the sensitive skin of the lips from sun damage. If it is a sunny day, then you should also be using (even in winter sun) protective sunglasses.
I'm 44 and beginning to look a bit wrinkly, but I also have very oily skin. Can you recommend something that will help fight the wrinkles but not give me spots? Every cream I have tried that is specifically for aging skin ends up making me look like a teenager (and not in a good way, just spots for days). Sometimes even things that are aimed at oilier skin are a bit too moisturising for me.
Some of the lighter-texture day creams, such as the Dr Nick Lowe Supercharged SPF 15 day cream, may be very satisfactory for your skin protection.
The most important thing also is to choose cleansers very carefully: if you have oily skin then you should use something like that Dr Nick Lowe oil reducing cleanser on a cotton ball and for the rest of the face the hydrating foaming cleanser.
During the winter months, your cleansers and face cream may need to be more moisturising, for example the Secret is Out Cream cleanser.
If you continue to get acne spots, then you should consult a dermatologist for treatment. In the meantime, the Dr Nick Lowe spot gel anti-blemish range can be very helpful - apply two to three times a day to new spots to stop them developing. An oil control day cream can also help to reduce skin oil and blemishes.
