Treat The Millennials In Your Life To These Christmas Skincare Gifts
When it comes to gift ideas for millennials, research has revealed that generation Y spend twice as much as Baby Boomers on self-care; so top of the millennial Christmas gifts list has to be skincare...
The key skincare concern for millennials, like many of us, is ageing. More specifically, as we reach our mid-twenties, we begin to produce 1% less collagen each year. Whilst we can’t control some factors, such as age and genetics, we can take a collagen supplements such as Proto-col Collagen Cordial and encourage collagen production by using treatments such as Proto-col Collagen Face Mask. Both products would be great gifts for millennials.
By the late twenties, it’s common for the skin’s natural exfoliation process to have decreased by 28%, causing the skin to look duller, feel dryer, and show further signs of ageing. Fine line and wrinkles may have started to become visible and the skin may have begun to display signs of loss of volume.
