If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years—it’s that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get great skin. Compliance is far more important than cash. If I had a dollar for every person who’s asked me what product they need to have, I’d be writing this from my villa in Capri. Seriously.
The answer isn’t a hard one, and even better, the rock star ingredient I’m about to reveal is readily available at a variety of price points.
So what’s the greatest anti-ager that everyone should have in their arsenal? Anything with SPF.
Don’t believe me? Just ask any dermatologist. All the pricey procedures they offer won’t do a bit of good if you aren’t caring for your skin. That means a gentle face wash, hydrating moisturizer, and of course—some SPF. Read on to learn how else they save face.
