I am v lucky as I am old 47 next week! and have good skin. Smooth and unlined and no spots dark circles etc but I have noticed that without make up it is quite red and blotchy in places and I like to wear no make up sometimes but am finding it less and less possible. I use liz earle and decleor but am looking for something to specifically target redness i think and not a cover up more a permanent fix! Or is it laser for me in teh future
You can buy lactic acid peels.... generally 40 or 50 %. If you do a few of these over a few months, its supposed to even things out quite a bit.. If you have never used acids before, start off with a lower percentage.
Over time acids tend to lighten skin.... making red patches less noticeable. Look for a cream that contains niacinamide and NAG ( N Acetyl D Glucosamine). These two in combination are good for patchy skin / hypepigmentation.
