Q: Patti, we 'women of a certain age' know that our bodies & skin undergo changes during - well 'the change' - what should we be watching for as far as our facial skin is concerned? What are great companion products to 'aging gracefully?

A: Believe it or not the erratic hormonal activity actually makes our skin look and feel as it did when we were teenagers; oily and prone to breakouts.  But unlike young oily skins, mature oily skin is actually dehydrated.  I know it sounds odd but you can have oily skin that is very parched and thirsty.  This is why you need to wear moisturizer.  And, firmly believe, at any age, that everyone needs a good eye cream.

 XOX,

Patti
