As a 35-year-old woman who is forever trying to find ways to brighten and hydrate my dull, dry skin (and come to terms with the sudden appearance of wrinkles), I’m always taking plenty of tips and recommendations from experts, beauty editors, and those with extraordinarily glowing complexions as to the best products and treatments I should use daily. Luckily, I recently stumbled upon Jin Cruce, a 53-year-old pharmacist who created her popular Instagram account Aging With Style and Grays as a way to inspire women to embrace aging and support them on their gray-hair journey. But as I scrolled through her page, I couldn’t help but be awestruck by her incredibly radiant, glowing skin.
Of course, I immediately tapped in with Jin and asked her to share her skincare routine along with the products she swears by that make her skin so radiant (and, in my eyes, make her look so much younger than her age). “Start your skincare routine early. You will thank yourself later. It’s never too late to start,” she explains. She doesn’t think you need to spend a fortune to achieve radiant, glowing skin, either. “These products are some of my favorite drugstore products I use daily to maintain healthy, glowing skin. They are affordable and easily accessible, and they work for me. The key is keeping these routines consistent. It’s all part of self-care and self-love,” she adds.
