Thanks so much for this question. You need to remember that an over-the-counter product is OK for general moisturising and for general maintenance. But if you are wanting something active that is going to treat your skin and prevent premature ageing or treat a condition that you already have, then you are going to need a product with potent active ingredients. With what you have described to me, I would suggest something like Lamelle’s Nourish range. It has fantastic antioxidants which protect you from getting further damage, it will also help you repair some of the damage that has already been done. The products also contains fantastic peptides that work on lines and wrinkles and the range has a really fantastic eye cream. It is also very important to remember to also apply your sunblock every single day, as sun exposure dramatically speeds up skin ageing (even if you are indoors all day, you are constantly exposed to UVA).
