When I started using anti-aging products in my 20s, before a single wrinkle had appeared, I did it all wrong. I purchased products for mature skin believing that the extra-strength would be extra-effective in preventing aging but instead I burned myself with retinoids and peels and caused break out after break out with deep moisturizing creams and night masks. At around age 30, I made a switch to natural skincare and my skin started improving. Now in my late thirties, I’ve found a routine that works and although my skin isn’t perfect, I never could have believed it would look this healthy at my age.
