Slower cell turnover affects the appearance of the skin by making it look dull and lost of radiant. The decrease of oil production turns the skin dry and dead. Free radical damage also creates fine lines and winkle. Below is some great skin care ingredient and routine that helps address fine lines and wrinkle concern.
