A few years ago, I found getting carded at every bar beyond annoying and complained about it regularly. Now, having just turned 30, I’m still getting carded every time I order a drink, but I’m doing a whole lot less complaining about it. I definitely have genetics to thank for my youthful appearance, and I also credit my esthetician, Vanessa Hernandez, who keeps my skin looking fresh with her amazing facials and treatments like IPL and micro-needling.
But I believe another major reason I look younger than I am is my dedication to my skincare routine. A few years ago, I got serious about making my skin a priority in my beauty routine (because really, if your skin looks good, your makeup routine can be quite simple), and I’ve stuck to it ever since. I also have mild rosacea, so that was another key factor in buckling down in the skincare realm. Now that I’ve mastered it, I love to share the knowledge I’ve gained from industry experts and estheticians, so if someone asks me about my routine, I give them the long-winded version. I’m not one of those people who say, “I just drink a lot of water.” I’ll list every detail for those unassuming people who inquire.
Since I’ve gotten the question quite a few times now, I figured it would be worth sharing on here in detail in case any of my favorite products have been on your radar and you were curious to find out more. From the only retinol that doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin to the facial oil that gives a glow like no other, below I’m outlining the 22 products that make up my anti-aging skincare routine.
