You know that saying, age is just a number? Well, that might be true in most cases, but not when it comes to your skin.
With factors such as sun damage (inevitable, considering how we live in Singapore) and poor dietary choices in play, there’s no denying that our skin is ageing at an incredibly accelerated rate. Even if you’re in your early 20s!
If you started noticing the formation of smile lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, well… we hate to break it to you, but your complexion is experiencing pre-mature ageing. Yikes!
Don’t worry, though— not all hope is lost, yet. Here are the 8 best anti-ageing products that you should — and can — start on right now, no matter your age!
