It strikes deep fear in our hearts that one day, one fateful day, we may descend into an irreversible metamorphosis, and transform into our Botox bat Aunt Karen. In fact, if you’re in your early-twenties, then chances are the gears of this transformation are already turning, slowly but surely. The firm, plump skin that stretches over our cheekbones, once as springy as a fish ball’s (this is the truth), will continue to loosen, eventually attaining all the elasticity of tired fruit. Where art thou, collagen, when we need you the most??

Gravity’s coming for our skin just as surely as the Grim Reaper is coming for our souls. We could always make a pact with the Devil in exchange for youth, but there’s no need to trouble with salt circles and pentagons because anti-aging is the only ritual you’ll need perform. iHerb, lead the way!

The sun is one of our biggest enemies when it comes to the battle against premature aging (the others are 1. sleeping with your makeup on and 2. talking to stupid people). This particular formula is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, so it’s particularly suitable for us, the sweaty inhabitants of this scalding sunny little island.

Alba Botanica, Facial Mask, Papaya Enzyme, iHerbAlba Botanica, Facial Mask, Papaya EnzymeS$15.60

Just like our feet’s, the skin on our faces constantly builds up from the daily weathering. At least fish spa sessions can reveal baby soft feet, but I’d sooner have a calloused dried fig for a face than plunge anything above my knees into those fetid pools. Thankfully, the green papaya enzymes in this wash-off mask work wonders in gently loosening dead cells, allowing your anti-aging serum to kiss the young skin underneath.
