35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Depends on the makeup I guess..

A dermatologist did tell me once that males tend to have more skin problems at younger ages, but then from around 30s on dermatologists see way more women with skin problems, particularly on the face - and they put that down to women wearing makeup! So they advise to wear as little as possible, try to have "make up free" days, and to make sure that you always remove your makeup before you go to bed and cleanse/moisturise your face!
