Both the leaves and my face are Red

So its my birthday on Saturday (see me giving you plenty of time to shop?) I have been looking into BB creams because I have terrible hyper pigmentation on my face, but then I realized, hey!  I'm about to be 43 years old.  Maybe I should re evaluate the skin regiment that I've been doing for 20 years, and that I "forget" to do most days.  Maybe I should forgo the BB cream in favor of CC creams which are more for aging skin.  It took my this long to realize I have aging skin. 

I went to Sephora, and asked them about it, and they lead me right to the old lady creams.  It was humbling.  Turns out I'm not 25 anymore.  My grey hairs and saggy boobs, and fat ass have been trying to tell me this, but I haven't listened.  I'm middle aged.  And I need old lady face creams.

I bought this stuff that is supposed to get my skin to turn over more often, and lighten my hyper pigmentation.  It was expensive.  I've been using it for three days, and now my face is red and burning.  Is that normal?  I read the instructions and it says that step 3 is only for night time, and I've been doing it twice a day.  No wonder.  My skin feels very smooth, though, only now its red.  Not sure that qualifies as improvement.  Will keep you posted.

In other news, the trees on my street are showing off and trying to out do each other with their fall foliage.  Do you say "fo-lee-age" or "fo-lage"?  Team Fo-lee-age! All the way!
