One of the biggest factors to consider when determining the best skin care routine for you is how old you are. This is because, over time, our specific skin care concerns and goals change simply as a result of the aging process. For example, people in their 30s maybe be more concerned about hydration and prevention, those in their 40s and 50s may be more focused on treating fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and firmness, and people in their teens and early 20s are determined to zap excess oil and acne. This is because teenagers often deal with a rollercoaster of hormones that affects their skin via excess oil production and an ongoing battle with acne.
Sometimes I find it ironic that I work in beauty. Not even an ounce of it. It makes looking back at pictures the least fun activity I can think of.
