COMMENTS/ANECDOTES: See Philosophy above: compared to my regime as my 30ish self, today’s me wears little or no foundation in the daytime, and only eyeshadow, mascara and lip color. My skin looks fine with only an occasional swipe of blusher, and my mantra is that good skin was the gift of menopause.
