When should I Start my Skin care routine?
There is no perfect age to start a skin care regime. We are surrounded by pollution and the only part of our body that comes in direct contact with all the dust, dirt and grime is our skin, especially the face, thus it very essential to start looking after it from an early age. Each and every age has its own skin problems that need to be tackled accordingly. The only time when our skin is not normally an issue is the pre adolescences age.
