About Ana

As a teenager, I had sensitive skin and acne. A few years later, I developed eczema on my elbows and seborrheic dermatitis on the nose area. So, even though I was getting my degree in Pharmacy, specializing in cosmetics wasn’t on my plans, it happened as a personal necessity. Of course, eventually it turned into a passion, and I’ve now been writing about cosmetics for over 10 years and I’ve been working with them for the past 6. For me, cosmetics that live up to their promises and deliver results are what you should be looking for.
