Need a cleanser or mask to minimize pores on nose, at 57 still have that T-Zone oily area with occassional red pimples. But the dark pores upset me. Thanks all.

    There is really nothing you can do about the size of your pores, but to clean them gently and thoroughly use USANA’s rice bran polisher. I’ve used it for years. It does the job! pimples can be caused by diet and/or stress. Look into doing something different about those areas of your life. If it is from air pollutants, wear a protective moisturizer like multi-tasking Boomstick Glo. http://www.boombycindyjoseph.com ( I have reports from many that it heals little pimples, cuts and dry cracked lips because of the healing properties of bees wax, honey,pollen,propolis and royal jelly. The oil you skin manufactures is the best moisturizer you can have. It is customized for you!
    Spread the t-zone oil to the drier parts of your face. It protects too!

      My pleasure. Meditation classes, yoga, chill out. Life is good. We make it stressful. We take on more than we need to, put pressure on high performance. Guilt guilt guilt etc. If you can view yourself as perfect just as you are. There is nothing to do, nothing to fix, nothing to strive for.
      Make fun the goal. You are a woman. Women are pleasure oriented creatures. It is our nature. Start having pleasure motivate you rather than success. Good luck! My heart goes out to you!

      Cindy you are an inspiration as I have neglected myself due to my stressful Real Estate career and caregiver for my elderly mother. But I miss taking Qi Gong classes which clearly helped me, I miss reflexology and massages…..and not being able to get away to my only oasis that helped me, The Canyon Ranch Spa in the Berkshires….that is a wonder drug. But it has been 6 years since my yearly trip there and I do miss that. Thank you so much for your lovely thoughts.

      Loraine, I use the Olay cleansers, but never tried the blemish control, thought I was through that, but menopause does things to your skin that you cannot imagine. I will also try the Clinque. Thanks Much.

    I searched Beautipedia for the most highly rated masques for oily skin: http://www.beautypedia.com/search.aspx?cid=155&st=1,2,3,4&rid=1,2,3,4 . You can do the same, using similar or different criteria. Hope this helps. (BTW you are NOT the only one with aging, oily skin. I still suffer from “edlerzits” if I’m not careful!)
