2018 was the year you bought a derma roller, learned to respect your gut, tried PRP for the first time, washed your face with sparkling water, and spent all your money on Tatcha just because Meghan Markle said you should. Your bathroom shelves were lined with vitamin C eye creams, chemical exfoliants, that ubiquitous blue aluminum tube, and The Ordinary (because of course you stocked up in a panic).
