Are you in your forties? Look at the ingredients, not the price!
When you are forty, the skin starts changing, visibly. Those cute crinkles that appeared beside your eyes when you laughed are becoming permanent fixtures, and it is no joking matter! Your ever oily skin seems to get dry and rough to touch with every passing day. Dark spots and uneven skin tone appear all over, and to make matters worse, there appear dark circles under your eyes. The complexion is dull, the glow and bounce is gone…the list is endless! The good news is that you can still be in control. With a few well-chosen Korean skin care products from Skin18, you can age gracefully.
