Forever young: Your one-stop solutions to ageing skin
Beauty (outer beauty, at least) fades faster than we think. A long-term study by SK-II has discovered that women in their 20s dramatically lose more radiance in their skin than any other age group. Hidden spots and clouds caused by damage from UV exposure starts developing at this point, making skin appear darker and less radiant.
The bad news is: the Fountain of Youth remains a legend. The good news? We may have just unlocked the secrets to ageless skin—or at least found essences of it. Here is a list of skincare finds that will help you on your way to ever-youthful, radiant skin:
