As far back as I can remember I have had more than a passing interest in skincare; in my early teens weekly home facials were an established part of my routine. But whereas my skin then would remain plump and line free no matter what I put on it, today, a few decades on and with a teen of my own at home, trying to keep my skin looking as youthful as possible has become a much more challenging affair.
According to widely quoted research, from the age of 30 we lose each year 1.5% of our collagen (the structural protein that gives us smooth plump skin). It’s a depressing statistic. But help is at hand in the shape of the plethora of anti-aging products and at home skincare gadgets on the market. But with choice comes a problem. Anti-aging products are relatively expensive to buy and how can we tell what is going to work and what isn't before we purchase them?
