We asked beauty expert J. Nicole Baca for advice on the best skincare treatments on the market

It’s not easy to choose the right skin creams! There are so many new products on the market, beckoning us to buy them. With fancy campaigns and big budgets, who knows which ones are the best?

While we like to think we actually get better with age, we totally understand that there might be some pesky skin changes you want to address as the years pass. It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when to start incorporating anti-aging products into your routine, so we chatted with one of our favorite celebrity experts,  Jamie Nicole Baca, who created ‘Overdose’ to get the scoop on the best approach to wrinkle creams. 

Not only is Baca an award-winning — leading independent skincare specialist in the U.S, who produced the top-selling serum — ‘Overdose,’ but she is also a well-known advisor and specialist in elite Hollywood circles, and in today’s current market, that means everything! 

While different age groups require different routines, the best “anti-aging” product is sunblock, which Baca recommends be applied to the face daily as young as possible! “In individuals with dry skin, a daily moisturizerserum, and eye cream should be started in the early 20s,” says Baca.

“If the individual has oily skin, traditional anti-aging products can start in their 30s, but most likely they will be using a retinol product to combat acne breakouts, so they are already using preventative measures.” 

When comparing products, opt for ones withretinolhyaluronic acidplant-based stem cellsresveratrol, and glycolic acid. Exfoliation is essential!” Baca says. 

Armed with that info, we set out to research and find the right anti-aging creams that fight wrinkles. Our list (of course) includes J.Nicole’s ‘Overdose.’

12 Celebrities who rocked camouflage print! (and got away with it)

The age-irrelevant pattern is back in trend.

Camouflage print never officially goes out of style — like stripes, plaid, and leopard, “camo” is practically the new “neutral” and with us forever — but this fall, the print is hotter than ever. The famed print is back. Or did it ever leave?

Camouflage seems to be popping up in unexpected ways and worn by trendsetting celebrities far and wide, including Jay Z, Akshay Kumar, Kim Kardashian, Kanye, Nikki Lund, Zendaya, and Khloé Kardashian. 

The TV personality and brand ambassador Sean Borg recently caused a stir online when he was photographed wearing camo print cargo pants while walking his dogs. Fans on social media criticized him, by saying, at 52, his style should be “age-appropriate” — suggesting he dressed more like a teenager.

Is there even a cut-off age for camo? 

The pattern can appear anywhere, whether it’s on a casual shopping trip or a red carpet event. Camo print even appeared on some spring runways, designers including Marc Jacobs and Nikki Lund (featured oversized camouflage jackets and leggings). And Lutz Huelle (presenting his boots and bombers) sent the army print down the catwalk, proving camouflage is trending strong, and probably with us well into next year.

2020 will be all about making age-irrelevant fashion statements, and that’s one thing we’ve noticed about people who dare to wear camouflage cargo pants. 

Fashionistas are reaching for eye-grabbing pieces such as loose-fit camouflage joggers, hoodies, T’s, making them the focus of their trendsetting look.

The timeless camouflage pattern has never lost its way in the fashion world, and if you’re looking for ways to keep it fresh, there is plenty of stylish ways to wear it.

The key to pulling off this trendy look is to wear it in moderation. 

Don’t overdo it. Whether wearing camo with an outfit that is otherwise head-to-toe white or building a look around a pair of camo pants, you can’t go wrong by adding the print to your wardrobe. 

Play up with the print with plain tops and cool accessories. If wearing it feels intimidating, start small or wear it as outerwear, so it doesn’t feel so “high commitment.”

Here are 12 Celebrities who are keeping it camo!

Kanye West

Kanye West wears a lot of camouflage-patterned clothing. Camo bucket hats, camo parkas, camo T-shirts, camo cargos. Over the years, the 40-year-old has been seen in a barrack’s worth of camo.  This man even raps about the print! West’s fashion label Yeezy Clothing heavily incorporated a camouflage print into its Season 5 line, with his wife, Kim Kardashian.

Zendaya

Actress Zendaya proved that even dressing to be comfortable on a potentially cramped flight leaves room for a bit of style. Seen walking through LAX ready to board in comfort, in a Puma camouflage-print hoodie and leggings that emphasized her thin pencil legs.

Sean Borg

The TV personality Sean Borg was criticized recently on social media for wearing camo print pants at 52-years-old. We think the handsome Brit’ looks anything but old in these paparazzi pictures and pulls off the look as good anyone half his age.

Kim Kardashian

The reality television star Kim Kardashian loves camo pants. Seen here dressed casually. The international star and her husband Kanye are often seen sporting this fashionable print. Kim is no stranger to boundary-pushing fashion, but these camo pants are a hard sell!

Akshay Kumar

Bollywood star Akshay Kumar stepped out in a super cool pair of camo trousers with a casual black t-shirt at the Screening od Baaghi 2. The actor was at the Mumbai airport sporting a grey camouflage jumpsuit. A big fan of the print!

Holly Willoughby 

Don’t be frightened to clash a classic camouflage print like British TV host Holly Willoughby – remember to keep the other half of your outfit plain. Contrasting patterns such as a statement bag or shoe will lift tonal greens and give them a fashion edge.

Shah Rukh Khan

The Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan sported camouflage pants looking as handsome as ever walking through Mumbai airport. Recently, the Zero actor was clicked by our shutterbugs while jetting off to an undisclosed location looking ruggedly hot. There’s something about Khan; he has the “it” factor.

Khloé Kardashian

Khloé Kardashian was spotted out and about in Calabasas wearing baggy cargo patterned pants. Khloe recently posted a photo of herself on Instagram wearing her Onepiece Camouflage suit and since been seen in the famed print a number times.

Mickey Rourke

Never too old to don camo….and Mickey Rourke proves it. The 64-year-old Wrestler star flaunted his brawny chest and fit physique in a pair of skintight ripped camouflage trousers walking through Beverly Hills, California. After seeing these pictures of Rourke, Sean Borg should not be worried about wearing camo. Age is but a number!

Cara Delevingne

Supermodel and actress Cara Delevingne seen making her way to her car after leaving a London hotel. The model wore a pair of distressed camouflage green jeans with her favorite leather jacket and Timbs. The distressing on the jeans added a more combative feel to the trendy attire. 

Scott Disick

Like his ex-ex Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick is a massive fan of the famous print, seen here, the actor and producer is wearing Ralph Lauren chino cargo pants. Not everyone loves Scott, but we like him these trousers!

Jay-Z

Jay-Z has made a string of appearances dressed in camouflage. One such outing was the NBA2K13 launch, where Jay was photographed wearing these Baldwin camo trousers. We tell you this pattern isn’t going away (despite some #menswear backlash), and what’s more, is that this pair specifically hasn’t left Jay-Z’s body.

So follow their example…and go, go, go “camo” in 2020 folks!
