I was very lucky as a teenager. I never suffered with acne, the horrible spot inflammations you get when you’re growing up and your hormones are all over the place. However, since I hit my forties they have become my No 1 enemy! I cannot remember the last time I woke up in the morning, looked in the mirror, and was pimple free. Apparently, many women my age suffer with problematic skin which can be caused through changes in hormones, stress or make up overuse.
The only way I can solve the problem is to try and medicate and cover them up. I recently bought a product from Boots the Chemist called ‘Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Concealer‘. It’s very good. The product medicates the spots when applied; it seems to cool down your skin. It’s also great as a concealer stick and takes the redness away, so that you feel a bit more human when you walk out the front door.
It’s £4.99, which is great value as it lasts a long time.
