It has probably dawned on you to start taking care of your skin. That having a simple skincare routine is essential, especially for the active millennial. The good news is, it’s never too late to start one. With our calendars packed with deadlines, parties and back-to-back adventures, our constant exposure to the sun, pollution, and high levels of stress make our skin vulnerable to damage and early signs of aging.
But how do you know what products are packed with the most benefits? Choosing the perfect ones has always been overwhelming. Young adults scour through beauty blogs and boutiques for highly effective products that won’t hurt their millennial budget. Luckily, there’s now a skincare line, especially for millennials.
Beauty authority Shiseido introduces WASO, a collection of products specially made for young adults—from the pastel colors to the pocket-friendly price range. Backed by Shiseido’s more than 100 years of expertise in skincare science, this line is made with the Whole Cell Release System W, a unique method that keeps botanical cells intact to take better care of your skin. Maximizing the power of nature, it easily targets usual problems like dryness, oiliness, and visible pores.
