There is a painting by an artist named Ron Hicks. It is called “A Stolen Kiss,” and it depicts a couple leaning over a wooden café table, a coffee mug between them, their heads as close together as you can get without touching. It captures that fleeting moment just before a kiss.
I have a very clear memory of when I put a pair of Converse sneakers on for the first time. The shoes were my cousin’s, who is 5 years younger, and it was just that time when our shoe sizes finally evened out. She was so petit, and I, at the age of 16, on the contrary, developed a very womanly body, so borrowing clothes was out of the question. Shoes, however, I borrowed from her with the hostility of an IRS. This was her tax for living in a cool city and having access to things like Converse sneakers.

The brand, percentage strength, and frequency are never the same, but retinol seems to be the secret for all of your skincare heroes.
