  • Sun block. In what order do you put on your creams?

    At the moment, I'm using Skinoren, then, when it's dried, I apply La Roche-Posay Moisturiser.  I've seen that it's a good idea to use a sun block, too, but am wondering in what order to add this.  If you use a sun block, how do you use it?

  • Mascara?

    I've got rosacea and ocular rosacea and haven't worn eye makeup for many months.  Wondering if I could, perhaps, wear mascara occasionally as my eyelashes are very light.  Can anyone recommend anything suitable?  Would a hypoallergenic mascara be OK?

  • Foundations

    I use a products called elemis. You have to order online. I suffer with really dry skin it feels like sandpaper and foundation just looks like I have the skin of a reptile when I apply it. Elemis has improved the softness of my skin without causing redness. It's not cheap though.
