If you were to ask 10 women about their approach to deflecting the aging process, you will likely find 10 varying views and 10 unique skincare routines. Just like pretty much everything else in life, what works for one person may not work for another. But, what most will agree is that the key to aging gracefully is to pay attention to your skin “early and always” by practicing a good, consistent skincare routine from a young age. Although we still believe that genetics definitely play a role in the outcome, along with a healthy diet (most of the time, yes we still splurge), exercise, and a lot of trial and error when it comes to beauty products, we’ve settled into our niche of what currently works for us. In addition, we find surrounding ourselves with people and things that make us happy, penciling in some “me” time, and smiling often helps us stay positive, and feeling and looking great!
