"The first one is sunscreen," she started. "Of course you hear this … but you need to use good ones."

"The second thing you absolutely should be using is retinoids," she shared.

"I prefer prescription retinoids like retin a or tretinoin — if you can't tolerate those then start low and then maybe you can build up to that," she said.

"If you use retinoids for years you will see such a noticeable difference in your skin," she explained.

"You'll be one of those people who grows old with beautiful porcelain skin," she said.

"The third thing that's important is to use topical dna repair enzymes because they repair the damage that's done by the sun to our skin" she said.

"The fourth thing to use is antioxidants, like vitamin C," she said. "Make sure it's an active form of vitamin C," she stressed.

"If you use these four things and you're religious about it, you will have beautiful skin as you get older — and healthy skin," she said.

TikTok users were appreciative of the advice.
