Founder And President, Colorado, Amanda Mull discussed on 1A
This is Keith at eight thousand feet in Colorado and being fair complected. I started taking better care of my skin about thirty years ago. I was already about thirty at that time. And I used department store brands for a few years. But then increasingly dermatologists said you didn't need to use those. So I'm kinda budget-conscious. So I use drugstore and mass marketer brands now, and they seem to work quite well, I also since I'm in Colorado can get away with wearing a cowboy hat and most of the time. And that helps keep the sun off my skin. I I'm in the outdoors a lot, and I think that's. Very helpful to do preventing skin cancers. And so on key. Thanks very much for sharing your story with this. Sorry, we missed you. We were just in Colorado. But thank you for sharing your story with us. And it turns out there are a lot of people like Keith with skin in this game, especially if they work in the cosmetics industry last year sales of skin care products doubled and nearly half the beauty industries recent growth came from products, like cleansers and creams and serums and sheet masks, but it can be hard to know what works. What's legit? And whether all the effort is worth it. What does it mean that so many of us pay top dollar to put our best face forward? And what should you be using to take care of your skin?
