3 Tips for youthful looking skin

Oh, how I miss those days when I could grab the nearest moisturiser and slap it on my radiant face before rushing off to school in the mornings. Years have gone by and my once flawless skin is just not the same anymore. Now I have to be more selective when it comes to the products I use on my skin as well as how I live my life.

Three ways with white sneakers by Bayanda Gumede
