Michelle, do you think you could do a post for 20 year olds who want to start being safe about their skin and prevent aging? Obviously I know to stay out of the sun and wear sunscreen but I wanna know what other things I can do being 21. I feel like a lot of aging techniques are targeted towards older women. Thank you!
