Skin Care


It's never too young to start good skincare practices. When we're younger, as the byproduct of stress, hormones and lifestyle, acne is the number-one skincare concern facing teenagers. As we age, people often forget to change their skincare regime -- the products you once used as an 18 year old, may have a different effect on your skin at 25, 30, etc. Updating your skincare routine as you age is important. Although skin is in its prime during your twenties, this age range begins noticing wrinkles related to facial motions. These "smile lines" begin to form primarily around the eyes and mouth. Doctors suggest taking preventative measures against early wrinkles by judiciously applying sunscreen (yes, even during the winter) and look for preventative skincare products containing antioxidants like Vitamin C and E to maintain a radiant complexion and minimize lines.
