At what age should I start using anti-aging products?

In your 20s, your skin is smooth, firm and radiant. You may still be experiencing breakouts, but youíre certainly not worried about wrinkles and sagging skin. So why should you start using anti-aging products this early? The answer is simple: so that you can look this good for years to come and be the envy of all your friends. Obviously, during your 20s, there is no need to use products that help firm, tighten and diminish wrinkles. But there are a few basics that should become part of your daily routine.

The sun is one of the main causes of wrinkles and age spots. So make sunscreen your best friend FOREVER. By applying a broad spectrum UVA and UVB blocking sunscreen every single day, you are not only protecting your skin and preventing skin cancer, you are also saving money. By this we mean the money you would spend later in your life to remove age spots, reduce wrinkles and reverse sun damage. Check out our sunscreen selection and youíre bound to find one youíll love.

Clarisonic MiaExfoliant
Removing dead skin cells helps your skin look fresh and glowing. It also helps to keep your skin smooth for years to come. The buildup of dead skin cells causes fine lines to be more noticeable and with time turns them into deep wrinkles. Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System gently exfoliates dead skin cells while also cleansing the skin. It will also help your treatment products penetrate more deeply so they can work better. Applying a light moisturizer with alpha or beta hydroxy acid such as glycolic or salicylic acid also helps remove dead skin cells and control breakouts. We offer a great selection of proven exfoliators for you to try.

Itís never too early to start using an eye cream. The skin around the eyes is very thin and fragile and needs special care. People with oily skin or skin prone to breakouts often use harsh cleansers and skin care products that can irritate and dry the skin around the eyes. Apply a light nourishing eye cream every night before bed to prevent fine lines caused by harsh skin care products. See our selection of eye creams for every age and every eye concern.

In the morning apply a product with antioxidants such as Vitamin C to help protect your skin from sun and pollution. If you have oily or combination skin, apply a serum loaded with antioxidants. If your skin is more on the normal or dry side, apply a moisturizer that contains antioxidants. See our selection of anti-aging skin care products.
