Somebody please help me with my face!

Evening all!

I've realised over the past couple of months that my skin on my face is looking old and dry.

This is going to sound horrendous but I have no skin care regime at all. Aside from a shower, there is no daily facial washing, no removing make-up, none of this cleansing/toning/moisturising business...!!

I use cheap (ish) makeup. Currently use a primer, a tinted bb cream and some light bronzer. Then slap on some mascara. Takes about 5 minutes in total and if I'm honest, I'm happy with the time it takes!

My forehead especially seems dry and by the end of the day seems to be peeling a bit. I've tried moisturising but it made me sweat so I ditched that!

I guess I'm looking for a magical all in one product that gives my face a slight glow/colour (not a heavy foundation) but also a bit of moisture. I'm fair to medium in skin tone and I get the occasional chin spots, but generally my skin is dry to normal.

I saw that testers are required for the bare minerals gel - would that solve my problem do you think? Or do I just need to embrace a full on skin care routine blush

I don't think more make up will make any difference at all. You need a skin care regime, I think your skin is crying out for a bit of tlc!
