Ahhh you’re a sweetheart yes it does feel great, I never wear makeup at home. But going out I just can’t change 40 years of old habits. I did enjoy the whole stupid mask thing for a minute cause I only had to do my eyes. It’s a girl thing lol.,

Younger guy here. I've always noticed that older women tend to look so much younger and more themselves without makeup on. My mom forgot her makeup bag once and she spent the weekend looking fresh and clean despite feeling a bit naked. You'll get used to it. If you don't wear makeup at home, why wear it in public?

Because I’m in my 60’s and look better with it that’s why. I don’t cake it on with a football.

I bet you look 10 years younger when you wake up in the morning compared to when you're out and all made up.

I bet you would be wrong but thanks for the support. A little bit of makeup should enhance your looks not overwhelm your face. I have reached an age that some makeup helps me look fresher and feel more confident.

20 years ago it was wake up and go. I miss those days and my energy levels most of all lol! Where did that young girl go? Getting old is not for sissies lol!

I'm a girl too lol, and I totally get it. Still, once you get used to going out without makeup it gets really easy. I started going without for the first time in 30 years at age 43 and people tell me I look younger and more vibrant than ever. We're our own worst critics. Give it a try!

Hey I have Rosacea too! How long have you been dealing with it? I get puffy red patches all over my nose and cheeks :(

I had it show up after menopause, another highlight lol! So around 10 years. I have a gel I got from my dermatologist called Clobetasol but it’s super greasy so I rarely use it.

I’ve found a really nice face cream that helps keep mine in check. It’s from Jan Marini the step 4 cream. Pricey but worth it to me.

What are you using?
