  1. the face! there are so many worries for it, pimple, wrinkle, pigmentation. sigh. and all i do is the 3 step – cleanse toner moisture.

  2. Nell

    I agree – it´s the face that should be taken care of: by wearing sunscreen every day!!!! Prevention is everything!

  3. Cristina

    I agree with Nell, apply sunscreen everyday! Remember this quote: Rays today…raisins tomorrow :-o

    Definitely the face, followed closely by the neck.
    A wrinkle and line-free face may be great but imagine if it was paired with a deeply creased neck; It’d look very unattractive!

    Take care of your skin is so imporntant. Especially prtecting it from the sun.

  6. Skin, eyes and neck. I agree with your guys I always wear sunscreen because I am the shade of a piece of paper. I have rosacea so I have to be extra careful with my skin, I am 33 so I am worried about fine lines around my eyes. And my neck is for wrinkle prevention.

    The face (and neck) without a doubt. Sunscreen is very important every day of the year!

    of course sunscreen is important but for me its the eyes. i don’t have any wrinkles yet but i feel that the skin around that area is so thin and fragile.

    It’s the skin but since our face is the first thing people notice, it’s my top priority to care for my face. Next will be my hands since I teach, which means I usually need to explain things by pointing at my students’ papers. I make sure they see well-cared hands.

  10. I guess it is skin – all over the body especially maintaining healthy skin by drinking loads of water and using as few chemicals as possible! I always see improvement in my skin elasticity and general dryness around feet and elbows when my intake increases by even 2 glasses more than usual.

    While I have always been aware of SPF ratings on my facial skincare products, I’ve been ignoring the ratings on my hand lotion. As a friend of mine says, “You CAN get botox, but the hands don’t lie!” I’ve seen lots of older ladies at work who have the face of a 40 year old and the hands of a 60 year old, instantly giving away their age. So at 30, I’m going to start taking care of my hands too.

    definitely skin. all over. i use clinique’s 3-step plus an eyecream every day (mac’s fast response for now). plus i use facial scrubs, sometimes acne control. also, masks once in a while…and i lotion up all the time. sephora has a great dry oil spray, to use after the shower (it’s just quicker than lotioning and waiting for the lotion to absorb). the one thing i AM guilty of is not wearing an SPF on my face. i tried shiseido’s but it broke me out. is there a good lightweight one for sensitive skin around?

    • Nell

      I think MAC Prep&Prime SPF 50 works great, it is lightweight and never broke me out. You could also try Clinique´s Super City Block Sheer SPF 25 or 40, I love that, it is also a good primer!

  13. Jenny

    Definitely face and hands. I live in a VERY dry city (Las Vegas, to be exact). I have bottles and tubes of lotions in my car, bookbag, purse, kitchen, living room.. geez, come to think of it.. I have lotion everywhere!! Hands are really important.. it’s a dead giveaway of a woman’s age.

  14. corona

    definitely the skin. beautiful skin is the perfect foundation for anything.

  15. Tanya

    I agree with skin, but I think more importantly than that…feeding your body from the inside out! Your not going to have amazing skin and look good as you get older if your putting crap into your body!! McD (I don’t mean greasy good, just crappy food in general) is not good for the body thus not good for the skin and certainly not good for your waistline. Drinking enough water and doing away with soda is sure to make your skin radiant…from the inside!!

    I am very conscious about the skin around my eyes so I definitely make it my priority in terms of applying moisturizers/serums. Another part is the upper lip. I really would hate it if I’ll have wrinkles there lol. Lately I’ve been discovering products that target that specific area and have been trying out a few of them. Lastly, my neck! I’d hate it if I end up with a turkey neck when I get old lol.

  17. Beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin.

    Victor Cembellin said in one of our employee seminars that you an have perfect eyes, a perfect execution of makeup… but without moisturized and primed skin… it doesn’t matter whatsoever. I agree 100%!!
