I’m 51 with very dry skin/sun damage (Queensland, Australia) with no skincare routine or tweakments. I don’t know where to start! Skin treatment? With menopause I just look so tired!

Ah, sympathies. I’d start with your doctor, to consider hormone replacement, as this has such a huge and fundamental effect on everything from brain and heart health, to our skin (more oestrogen means more collagen in the skin, which means stronger, firmer, better hydrated skin that doesn’t look so old and tired). Then skincare! Take a look at the skincare advice on our downloadable factsheet about dry, rough skin, which you can grab on this page.  If you want more detail, I’ve written a whole book called Start with Skincare which you can find on Amazon. In terms of products, start with a gentle cleanser, a vitamin C serum, a moisturiser and a sunscreen every morning, then in the evenings, use the cleanser, some sort of night treatment product with retinol, and moisturiser. Give it a few months and your skin should be looking and feeling much better. Good luck.
