As time passes, our skin changes. Through the years, the skin will go through so many steps, from baby to mature skin, there are a lot of in-between.
We believe that every skin is beautiful, whether you suffer from acne, wrinkles, dark spots, you should always love your skin. If you want to change the aspect of your skin, do it for yourself and do it in a respectful way. Be good to your skin. You’ll wear it every day for the rest of your life!
If you want to avoid or at least slow down the process of skin ageing, you probably already asked yourself “When should I start using anti-wrinkle products?”, that’s the question we’re going to try to answer today.
It’s on an individual basis.
Skin ageing is a different process for everyone. By ageing, we mean the loss of elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, unevenness, etc. Some of us will face these changes sooner than others. We can explain this phenomenon by:
- Lifestyle: smoking, alcohol, lack of activity, stress, unbalanced diet favour skin ageing and the creation of free radicals. Excessive sun exposure, pollution and blue light will also harm the skin leading to premature skin ageing.
- Genetics: Ask your parents when they started to see the first signs of ageing, you’ll most likely experience them around the same time. Your gene pool defines the lifetime of your organs and this applies equally to your skin.
- Skin type: a lack of hydration results in the creation of wrinkles, it’s basically a crack in your epidermis. Thus, dehydrated and dry skin types that tend to struggle to maintain hydrating and the hydrolipidic film of the skin may experience signs of ageing sooner than other skin types.
When should I start using anti-wrinkle products?
It’s usually recommended to start between 25 and 30 years old but you should check for yourself. Observe your skin before applying your skincare and make-up, make faces in front of the mirror and if you see lines then it’s time to start anti-ageing active.
The most important thing here is to choose products made for your skin.
- Vitamin C: scavenges sun free radicals, great for dark spots and unevenness.
- Hyaluronic Acid: to hydrate and smooth your skin.
- Retinol, AHA, BHA: to exfoliate and lift your skin, great against wrinkles.
Keep in mind that if you are in your 20s and you’re facing blemishes, rednesses or even acne, you should try to work on that first. Some actives such as glycolic acid can benefit both young and mature skins but that’s not the case of every product. Also never forget that, whatever issues you might want to fix, you should always choose non toxic skincare products to take care of your skin.
