20’s: In our twenties, skin starts to slow down its renewal process and things like dryness and lines can start to form. Earlier damage from sun exposure can also surface with increased freckling and blotchy pigmentation. In this decade it is important to make sure your skin product regimen is correctly tailored for your skin. Retin-A based products (such as our Esana Essential) would be important to stop small lines from forming and to maintain collagen production. Sun avoidance is also necessary to prevent looking like a dried leather bag in the future. For some women, early forehead or frown lines may need Botox treatment to reverse and prevent them from etching the skin.

And not all that long from now…You’re going to get a cosmetic procedure for the same reason you wear makeup: because every other woman is.”
