I seem to be frequently spotty at 47. Getting fed up with it. What do people use to battle ageing on the face and tackle spots? I have combination skin that is acting up the older i get. Is it a problem of the peri menopause? What can i use to combat it?

You need tretinoin / retinol! Look it up

I have this and I'm 38

I had a facial last weekend and was recommended a yonka product gommage 303 to exfoliate and its quite nice.

How do you get tretonin ?

Thank you. Where do i get this mystery product Tretonin? Can you recommend me a product that contains it?
I feel pissed off that after spending most of my youth with fairly good skin that at my age i am 'breaking out.' Coupled with ageing, its not fair!!!!

It's prescription only - you need to see a private dermatologist. Retinol is a much weaker form of it that you can buy in some products (La Roche Posay do Redermic R, I think). You can get it in Boots

eBay but it's a minefield.

This is pretty good, not a miracle cure of course, but has definitely improved the condition of my skin.

Retinoid here. I was using LRP redermic R and this is much more effective

Superdrug do a range called clearly youthful which is very reasonable and tacklesboth issues. Glycoloc mask, & cleansers, serums and moisturiser
