Wise Mumsnetters, please help me! My face is depressing me. Around my nose and chin I have the oily skin of a teenager, I have a big red nose like an old man, and my cheeks and forehead are like a Weetabix! I’m 44 years old, but look 64. Can anyone recommend a skin-correcting tinted moisturiser or miracle potion? I’m tired of scaring the children! I bow to your greater knowledge.
Certainly sounds like rosacea which will need medical intervention.
I am on lymecycline and mine improved dramatically within a couple of weeks. It can't be cured but it can be very successfully managed. I would make an appointment first before dropping a lot of money on facials and skincare.
Definitely look for a professional to advise pn Jan Marini - I got on to them through a salon.
I use their biglycolic cleanser, then I use The Ordinary hylauronic acid and retinoid (latter night only), JM Bioclear cream (night only), JM Transformation Cream, Guinot Eye Cream, JM Physical Protectorant (SPF45) I The day only, sometimes with a couple of drops of Clarins tint. It all works really well, but you need what works for your skin abc not mine.
