Lucille Ball once said, “The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly and lie about your age.” While TDD is all for live honestly, and eat slowly, but wonder if our skin is a team in the lies about our age.
Despite the fact it is important to base our diet around superfoods to maintain the youthfulness of our skin, giving into today’s stressful life, air pollution, harmful cosmetic products and many other reasons, it is also essential to protect and care for it externally. Dermatologists say that the best time to start using an age-defying product is as soon as we reach our 20s, and by 30s we should be already on our comprehensive skin care regime. So if you haven’t started it already we would say get on it today. The benefits of the anti-aging process goes a long way fighting the signs of aging, be it fine lines, sagging skin, crow’s-feet, wrinkles, dark spots, puffiness, dullness, and dryness.
Although TDD’s greatest advice to protecting skin against aging is to use a good sun protection cream every single time you step out in the sunlight, it is also necessary to top it up with some quality anti-aging product that best suits your skin type and budget.
