I have always been pale

Now my face seems a little ....yellow and I have tiny freckles around my eyes and at the side of my face.

Just normal aging or something else?

I am 35 (and knackered with two DC).

Do you use SPF in the summer?

Only what's in my foundation. Sun damage?

Sounds like normal ageing.

You need an spf 50 all the time to get it back to normal. Im pale and had to have ipl for ages to brighten / clear up my skin by the time i was 40.

The yellowness could be a touch of jaundice. My skin colour used to be cool (and pale due to low iron). Now it's warm due to higer levels of bilirubin. Seeing as you're knackered it's probably worth getting bloods done anyway.
