My mother has aged A LOT better than my grandmother,and she hasn’t really done much to her skin. The only real difference is my mother has very rarely worn makeup. Does that make a difference in the aging process somehow?

    Thank you for your question!
    The answer is….Not really; the real factors for aging skin are genetics and exposure to the sun.
    You get what you get as far as genetics go but the daily use of a Vitamin C Antioxidant like Skinceuticals CE Ferulic will help prevent cellular damage to the skin and a sunscreen/block of SPF 30 or higher will
    protect the skin from sun damage.

    The sun is the biggest contributor to aging and damaging the skin. My best advice is to WEAR SUNSCREEN every day!
