hello! after reading your make-up missive about simplifying the skin care routine, i have a few questions. i am 14 with combination skin [oily forhead/nose, normal chin though]. i have dreaded under eye circles, ruddy cheeks and nose, and these strange rough patches at the bottom of my face, where my neck meets my head. here are my questions to you...

1. how can i get rid of these rough patches?

2. how can i even out the redness without make-up?

3. could you reccomend a routine with products for me [mind you, i'm on a middle schooler's budget :)]? thanks so much!!

pst; i do use suncreen, too, but it always feels like a thick make up on my face. help with that too? thanks!! sorry for being such a bother.

    rough patches can respond well to exfoliation (unless they are caused by a medical condition that requires a doctor's attention - and you'll know that if they don't go away after a while).

    i like to use a soft bristle brush to wash my face -

    you can find these inexpensively at most drug stores or Wal-Mart.

    a couple of years ago, i had this column about teen skin care

    and i posted a thread this morning about new sunscreens.

    do you know what causes your redness? that would give me a better idea of what to suggest for it?

    i'm not sure...i think it might be pre-rosecea, but my mother won't believe me and won't take me to a dermatologist. i used eucerin redness relief cleanser, but i didn't see any real change in the redness...
