My Mum Looks 10 Years Younger Than She Is—She Credits It to This One Product

There are many things that I admire about my mum, one of those being her skin. Don't get me wrong—her big heart and her drive and passion for life definitely take the top spots, but she really does have a wonderful complexion. For context, my mum turned 60 this year, and her skin is as plump and glowy as ever. So, what's her secret? When it comes to skincare, my mum definitely has a "less is more" approach, and keeps things simple with an effective cleansermoisturiser and SPF. However, over the last couple of years, she has started to introduce a serum into her routine, and it's made a huge difference to the way her skin both looks and feels.

My mum used to complain about dry, irritated skin, but since applying a serum before her moisturiser, she says that her face has never felt softer. Not only that, but thanks to the hydrating benefits of a serum, my mum's complexion looks a whole lot plumper. Although I don't believe in the term "anti-ageing", I do believe in using products to combat skin concerns. Of course, no amount of skincare products can ever fully get rid of fine lines, but certain ingredients can help to plump the skin and give the kind of glow people comment on.
