I though this could be an interesting to do, am curious as to what you all look like!

I'm 5.3, UK size 10-12, not at all toned or fit but slim-ish. Have shoulder-length wavy dyed black hair, decent eyes, decent eyebrow shape, nose's too big, full shapely lips and very NON-American teeth. :smileyhappy: Overall face has decent structure, I think. Regular 41 y old wrinkles, don't look any older or younger than my age. Big boobs (DD). Sort of shapely all over, ok hands, nice feet. Could do with liposuction just about everywhere :smileyhappy: Bf thinks I'm gorgeous - OLD FOOL that he is. I wear black 95% of the time; am a very girly girl so most of the time my clothes float, have lots of frills, look hippy-style etc etc. Low-cut tops, long flowing skirts, that kind of thing. Don't wear trousers -   don't wear anything that isn't 100% feminine. Can't bear 'mutton dressed as lamb' look so always try to make sure I don't look like 41 going on 15.

(Note to Rocklady: ((((( Rocklady :heart:))))) you don't need to reply!! Cause the above's more or less your description too!! :smileyhappy: - sorry people, she IS my twin!!)

Get sunscreen that's specifically made for your face, then you don't need moisturizer too.  Now they also have these creams called ""BB creams" that various companies make--it's a combination of anti-aging, tinted moisturizer and sunblock all in one.

it's hard to find moisturizer with spf above 15. Putting the extra sunscreen on top of your daily mosturizer is a bit overload of oily gunk.

Yes Marie, that would be  great. She and I are close in age, and I think with a little persuasion she might want to experience a different kind of scenery. What scenery - hm.. well that will remain a  secret for now : >

The most skin damage actually occurs on cloudy days because people naturally assume  that in the absence of direct sunlight the skin is spared from UV damange and take off their guard. Not quite. Clouds are transparent to UV.  If  the sun is up in the sky with or without clouds  and you are out in the open without protection, your collagen is breaking down and your skin is aging !

Reeshie, the statistical probability of her overlooking geography and falling as in lust with you as you seem to be with her is...well....quite remote.  Not to say you're not a great-looking man, I'm sure you are, and we'd all get a kick out of a romance brewing here, but really....take a cool shower!  ha ha ha!

You know, in 1998 I worked with a semi-famous woman for a few years.  She had skin like a 30 yr old, although she was 60 something.  I said, "How did you do this?" and she said, "I was lucky. I had melanoma on my chin at 28.  The doc said I had to use spf 45 for the rest of my life.  So I did."  She pulled it out of her purse to show me. 

New research proves that nothing over spf 30 is any extra benefit, but she was religious about it. I was so inspired, I did it for a year..ok, maybe six months...ok, maybe three months....

Damn too pig headed. Now I wish I'd listened.
