There's something soothing about looking back at old red carpets photos - it's like scrolling back over your own Facebook timeline, seeing a snap from 2010 and feeling chuffed at how far you've come. Just after the turn of the millennium is a particularly good time to look back on. It was a time when …

Anyway, it stands to reason that with problem skin, you're…
