The Perfect Age for Anti-Aging Products

perfect age for anti aging products

Have you ever had that moment? When you look in the mirror and think, “Oh my gosh, is that a wrinkle?” The first time we notice smile lines, age spots, or small wrinkles, many of us start to worry. Thoughts of, “Will these lines get bigger?” “Am I really that old?” “How many more will appear?” run through our minds. Which then begs the question—when should you start using anti-aging products? Is it best to start young? As soon as you see a line appear? Or wait until your face is cluttered with wrinkles? Seriously. The debate is real.

Let’s all breathe a sigh of relief together. SIGH.

What the Experts Say About Anti-Aging

So what is the general age consensus by dermatologists, estheticians, and other experts to start using anti-aging products? 25. At 25, you may start to notice some fine lines, as your body produces less collagen every year after maturity (which is 18). But don’t panic. It’s part of the natural aging process. Everyone goes through it. Which is why, at 25, using anti-aging products will help you maintain a youthful glow, allowing you to stave off the effects of aging for a long time.

What to Use

By now, the inevitable question of what products to use is likely on the tip of your tongue. First and foremost, finding a product with sunblock throughout the day is high on the list. Using a sunscreen or moisturizer that protects against UVA and UVB rays, with an SPF of 30 or higher, will be one of the most effective ways to combat aging, as sun damage is one of the leading causes of the aging process. Check out Geneva Naturals Advanced Anti Aging Moisturizer with SPF.

Second, anti-aging creams with collagen. Since your body has slowed down its collagen production, starting out with creams and products with collagen in the ingredients will replenish what has been lost, helping to maintain glowing, supple skin.

But there’s even more you can do to slow down the aging process, and it doesn’t require money out of your bank account!

And what would that be? That would be prevention. First, don’t smoke. Smoking hampers a body’s ability to make collagen, which leads to premature wrinkling. Second, stay out of the sun as much as possible. If you combine sun damage and smoking, you’re 10 times more likely to develop wrinkles than those your same age who don’t smoke and who stay out of the sun. Anti Aging Skin Care Line Long story short? There are a lot of solutions to the aging game. By combining the right anti-aging ingredients (like products with SPF 20 or collagen) with prevention techniques (like keeping out of the sun and not smoking), you will find your skin looking fresh, vibrant, and as young as ever. So don’t hesitate when you look in the mirror. Embrace it!
