When do you start using Anti-Aging Products?

The age-old question (pun intended): When should you start using anti-aging products?

The right answer is probably tomorrow!

You really don’t need to concentrate on this until you are out of your teens, but in your 20’s, it is prudent to start a skin care regimen.

However, as you age, the products you use might change.

Anti-Aging in Your 20’s. 

When you’re in your 20’s, the idea of aging skin is probably not even on your mind. When your skin is young, you can get away with a more minimalistic approach to your skin care regimen. But high-quality products with potent ingredients can keep young skin looking younger, longer. You don’t need to pull out the serious anti-aging products just yet, however, it is important to keep skin hydrated with a good moisturizer… usually one for the body and one for the face.

Probably the moist important thing you can do in your 20’s is to wear sunscreen.  Too much sun exposure at any age is a major cause of wrinkles.

Anti-Aging in Your 30’s. 

When you approach your 30’s, you need to add adding a high-quality anti-aging product to your skin care regimen. Retinol is a popular option as it is essentially pure vitamin A, and is beneficial for acne-prone skin as well as being a powerful anti-aging solution. Your 30’s is generally when you can expect to start showing more noticeable signs of aging and figuring out which anti-aging ingredients work best for your skin can help reduce those signs and keep your skin looking younger, longer. Other fabulous ingredients to investigate: Glycolic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, and more!

Anti-Aging in Your 40’s. 

Traditionally, your 40’s is a bit of a turning point for your skin. You’ll begin to notice more signs of aging in the form of lines and wrinkles, as you approach and move through this decade. You may even notice a loss of skin elasticity. Begin using a more emollient moisturizer on your skin as well as products that contain higher levels of antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients. If you’ve been following healthy skin care routines up to now, you’ll be ahead of the game, but it’s not too late to take more proactive steps to slow down the aging process.

Anti-Aging in Your 50’s. 

As you reach your 50s, your sebaceous glands produce less oil, making your skin feel drier than it may have felt in your younger years. Nobody wants dry skin that feels uncomfortable and reveals wrinkles and fine lines. If this is happening to you, try using a rich, emollient skin cream that contains antioxidants and ceramides (natural lipids that contain moisture) to help your skin retain more moisture, naturally. Also, it is important to be careful about the cleansers you choose. Avoid soaps, with their harsh ingredients that can strip your skin of moisture and oil. Instead, opt for a gentle, mild, creamy cleanser that leaves your skin clean without drying it out.

Anti-Aging in Your 60’s & Beyond. 

As you move beyond your 50s, wrinkles and fine lines will naturally start to become more prominent. This is totally normal, and while you cannot put a stop on aging altogether, you can use products that will aid you in keeping your skin both healthy and beautiful. Much like your 40’s, you’re going to want to reach for more nourishing, potent options. A full beauty regimen can assist you in achieving better results (both immediately and in the long term).
