I choose skincare to meet a particular concern. For example, if my complexion is looking uneven, I’ll buy a formula that treats pigmentation. If it’s feeling dry, I’ll choose something that’s super hydrating.

Over the past few years, as I’ve become better educated about my skin and as I noticed it starting to age, I have added more specific supplements to the mix such as hyaluronic acid and collagen – substances produced naturally by our bodies but which decline with age.
Here is a quick look at key skin supplements and what they do:
