How do I look 32 when I am actually 37?

How can I look 32 when I am actually 37? I am MALE and about to go on a bunch of interviews for a job where the ideal entry age is 32 in an industry that is *very* age conscious and age discriminatory (it's TV staff writing, fyi). I am 37 and want to register more like 32/33 when I walk into the room... can anyone suggest a comprehensive "look 5 years younger" makeover? [more inside]

Mo money, mo facials

People who are rich (or comfortable) usually have nice skin texture, look polished and generally look smooth. People who live poor tend to have rougher skin, and look a bit less smooth. What are the richer people doing to their skin/face to get this look? What high end brands are they buying? [more inside]

Renova, retinol---need prescription or will OTC work?

I recently saw an article by some docs on Oprah that give recommendations about taking care of your skin at certain ages. It says that in your forties and fifties most people need Renova or retinol. I have mild rosacea and dry fair skin and am 48. Do you think I should see a dermatologist to get a prescription or just use an over the counter product with retinol. I do not want to waste my money on an over the counter product if my 48 year old skin would benefit by the prescription. I have lines and dullish dry skin with a few age spots. Thanks.

How can I remove or fade age / liver spots on my face?

After moving to a hotter climate I seem to have developed a few unattractive flat brown spots on my face which I'm assuming are liver or age spots (too big to be freckles). This has never happened to me before so I'm not sure what to do - can anyone please tell me an effective way to fade these spots or get rid of them altogether?
