I am 50 years old, I live on the central coast of California, and I am a college professor.  Needless to say, like most people I am extremely busy, and since I was blessed with good skin overall – both my parents have nice skin – I didn’t really take care of it when I was younger.  Yes, I washed, toned, and moisturized, but I didn’t pay attention to ingredients and didn’t think that one product could be much different from another.  I was quite wrong.

In my late 30s and early 40s, I started paying extra attention to my skin and using better quality products.  I finally realized that what had worked for me when I was younger when I had combination to oily skin was no longer working for me, and in fact, my skin was no longer “oily” except under certain circumstances.  I really noticed a shift in my skin in my late 40s when I started seeing wrinkles that weren’t there the day before!  I started searching for even better quality products that had been tested by real people and stumbled upon Truth In Aging and was instantly a fan.

Now, I’m very selective about what I put on and in my body and, for ethical reasons I won’t use products tested on animals (there are so many quality products available that this is not difficult).  I’m pleased to say that because of the honest reviews on TIA I can check the reviews on products first and then buy as opposed to buying without guidance.  I’ve also been pleased to review a number of products for TIA and am quite impressed with some of the newer products available.
