I was really good about taking care of my skin in my twenties, and then kids came along. I tried again in my thirties, however was not always vigilant about it. I definitely starting caring more about my skin in my forties.

I started taking it seriously about 2 years ago, so 27. It's not that I wasn't taking care of it before, I just took the time out to do more research on products and how to care for my skin. And boy, was I doing it wrong lol

I started to take care of my skin when I turned eighteen. Always wear sunscreen even during winter time.

❤️❤️❤️ Thanks everyone

My husband noticed that my face looks clean and clear than before so I told him sunscreen and moisturizer are my important key.
Cleanser also good I don’t use soap anymore
Retinol also good for night time. I thank Dr. Dray and Dr.Davin both of them good for learning how to taking care of your skin and how to pick our sunscreen.

I’m addicted to sunscreen now 😅😅😅

Product Junkie For Life!

Skincare, makeup, fragrance, and hair products: I became an addict at about 11-years-old (circa 1985)—skincare started with Bonne Bell's Ten-O-Six Light Lotion, then festered from there!

I became more serious about skincare in my mid-20s, though admittedly, I wasn't as proactive about using sunscreen then (and have pigmentation to prove it at 44). I worked for Estée Lauder 2000-2002, so would receive $200 worth of free products (whatever I wanted) every four months and was always given full-sized skincare when a new product would launch or after attending "education" seminars. I always chose Advanced Night Repair serum, Advanced Night Repair for Eyes, Idealist, and Daywear SPF 15 as freebies.

Between 2002-2008, I worked for Essential Day Spa, and was introduced to MANY spa/medical grade skincare brands, whose products contained higher percentages of active ingredients (boutique & department stores do not have this): original SkinCeuticals (and their former, more active Primacy range, before L'Oréal bought the brand), Kinerase, Cellex-C, Remergent, Cellcosmet, Vivier, PSF, MD Formulations, PCA, SkinMedica, Valmont, IS Clinical, original Clarisonic (still have my original MD model, given to me in 2005), LightStim (given to me), and MANY more! I was also part of bringing on many of the brands sold/discontinued on EDS's site (Kate Somerville's first Canadian account, circa 2007). You can bet I received and used nice, truly effective products!

2010-2012: a lot of dermatological (not medical grade, but more active), prestige, and luxury brand skincare, given to me as grátis from various brands whilst working in one of the country's biggest, niche beauty BOUTIQUE locations. (Psst! Shop in the DERM section for skincare at SDM/beautyBOUTIQUE! Don't waste money on less-active "high end" brand products! You're paying for ADVERTISING, PLACEMENT, PACKAGING, and the NAME, not for more active ingredients!)

2013-2014: another medical spa in Vancouver, where I worked in marketing and brand procurement for their LARGE website, adding medical grade, niche, boutique, trending, and truly effective brands to their large brand portfolio (i.e. FOREO). The employer was pretty stingy with passing on marketing samples and grátis (but the manager certainly got and kept A LOT and/or passed on freebies to friends, not staff!), but I still managed to maintain my skincare routine on a budget.

I know my products, where to invest money and where to skimp. I am turning 45 in late October, look about 8-10 years younger, and credit good skincare (and not having kids) to my more youthful appearance.
