It is important to keep in mind that no skin care product can fully prevent or reverse the visible signs of aging. Fine lines, wrinkles, and skin color changes are natural changes that everyone experiences.

  • Skin type: To prevent irritation, a person should find a product that suits their skin type. People with acne-prone skin, for example, should opt for a “noncomedogenic” serum, which does not clog pores.
