Aging. It’s inevitable, whether we like it or not. We all have to go through it. The same goes for our skin. Over time, we develop visible lines on our faces and lose some of that youthful glow as our skin gets thinner and drier. This is all due to the fact that it’s just natural for our body to produce less collagen and elastin as we get older -- which affects the look and texture of our skin.
So how old should you be to start an anti-aging skin care routine?
The general consensus of most experts is when a woman reaches the age of 25 and above. This is called the pre-aging stage. It is at this stage when you develop and start noticing the lines and dark spots around your face and the dullness of the skin.
In your 20s, your skin is still fully capable of repairing itself and produce collagen. But if you’re more of the “prevention is better than a cure” type, you can opt to use anti-aging products with antioxidants as early as the age of 21.
But an anti-aging skincare routine isn’t all you should be thinking about if you want to care for your skin in the long run. On top of having a good daily skincare routine, a healthier lifestyle is also a must. Meaning; getting more sleep, quitting smoking, drinking more water, and maintaining a healthy diet.
You only have one skin, so invest in it and give it the best treatment it can possibly get.
