The expert told fans that it’s time to start using one absolutely vital product in your 30s, which you should have been using already. That is sunscreen.

She went on: “Most importantly, this is the time to invest in cosmetic procedures so start with the Botox, a few chemical peels, maybe a Fraxel here and there, and you will thank me.
A Fraxel laser is a treatment rising in popularity. It is often used for acne scarring and sun damage, but it can also be used for wrinkles and hyperpigmentation too.
The laser works by damaging the skin with thermal energy, encouraging it to stimulate new healthy cells to replace the damaged ones. It encourages skin turnover and collagen production.
On the other hand, there is one product the expert told skincare devotees to avoid buying. She advised: “Ditch the hyaluronic acid, it’s in everything. Don’t worry about buying expensive hyaluronic acid serum. It’s not doing anything.”
One commenter asked the expert for product suggestions. She said: “Retinol recommendation? Vitamin C recommendation? Mid 30’s here trying to preserve what I have.”
The doctor said: “I’m biased, but honestly check out Oath MD Retinoath – Vitamin C + Retinol + Peptides.”
