When to Start Anti Aging Skincare

NOW. . . It is never too early to start. Do not wait until you hit 50 or when you see the fine lines, wrinkles or sagging skin to start. I did not start until the droopy, hooded eyes appeared in my mirror.  Fine lines and wrinkles showed up long before, but they did not bother me. Now, I am researching products constantly looking for trial & error youtubers on a weekly basis. It is never too late to spring into action to help aging skin but kinda late for baby boomers like me to start preventative care. . .

Start Wearing Sunscreen SPF 30+ Every Day.

Don’t Sleep in Your Makeup.

Lead a Healthy Lifestyle.

Develop a Daily Anti-Aging Skin Care Routine.

It’s never too early to start using anti-aging skincare items in order to prevent premature aging of the skin, but choosing your products according to your age is still important in order to get the correct care.  A generally effective anti-aging routine should consist of serums, day and night cream, hydrating cleanser and an exfoliator.

• Age 18-25: Prevention through sun protectors with a medium to high SPF, a healthy lifestyle and tailored skincare routine with lighter products and antioxidants.

• Age 25-35: Light signs of aging repair through hydration, stimulation of collagen production and sun protection to prevent liver spots – especially during pregnancy. Active anti-aging ingredients can be introduced to revive skin and regular exfoliation will ensure a quicker renewal of the skin.

• Age 35-45: Intense hydration and collagen stimulation together with active use of anti-aging serum/cream and dark spot correctors to firm skin, frown lines and wrinkles while adding radiance. Sun protection with a high SPF is a must.

• Age 45-55: Stick to non-drying cleansers and a gentle cleansing brush to remove dead skin cells – especially when using anti-aging serums & creams. Remember to keep using sunblock and don’t forget to treat your neck and chest area to your anti-aging routine as well.

• Age 55+: Keep hydrated, sun protected and don’t stop your anti-aging routine. Skin can still be improved and protected. Peptides and pure Retinol face cream may be used, and dark spot correctors will keep spots in check.

If you have done any research at all, you will find that aside from Fillers and Injectables that are prescribed by Doctors, many older women are using some form of RETINOL. Before you start any type of  skin treatment, it is very important to consult a Dermatologist. Do not take matters into your own hand if you have any problem areas on your face and skin.  Please be cautious and ask questions of your medical team if you are not absolutely sure about any procedures/treatments. Then, be careful to consider a few factors – the age of your skin; the type of your skin; and the climate in which you reside before jumping online to shop for products. Over the counter Retinol is less potent than prescription strength Retinoids, and also less irritating. It comes in different forms: retinol, retinaldehyde, and the retinyl esters, such as retinyl palmitate. The most common prescription strength options are Tretinoin (Retin-A, Atralin, Renova, Refissa, Tretin-X), Adapalene (Differin), or tazaortene (Tazorac). BEWARE!!  These products are NOT for every skin type and NOT for everyone!

Aging is a normal part of life, and no matter how much we may want to believe otherwise, it is inevitable. Instead of worrying about getting older, live confidently through the years with grace and wisdom. Make the best choices for not only a healthier looking skin but a vibrant, active and healthy life overall. Even though I may apply more creams and serums these days, I’m still happy in my own skin and look forward to more happy healthy days. Choose your skin & self-care products wisely my Sistas. . . .

    I have been using Avon products for many years as does my aunt who is now over 80 and we love how our skin looks. It is vital to take care of our skin so that we age gracefully, thanks for sharing this post sis.

    When i turned 18 my aunt introduced me to Mary Kay and instilled it in our minds that you must take care of your skin at an early age.. I’ve been with it ever since.. you’re so right with this.

    I’m so lazy when it comes to skincare routine. I only use a cleansing soap, moisturizer (with SPF 30+), and a toner. That’s it. For my skin to prosper, I know – I KNOW – I have to take care of other areas. But again, lazy.

    Thanks for this post and your tips.

    I agree with the importance of using a daily SPF and appropriate products for one’s skin type while being diligent with regular skincare. I just need to know why any anti-aging products are so expensive then regular products.

    I don’t use anything that specifically says “anti-aging” on the bottle, but I do have a skin care routine that I like to stick to. And that routine involves cleansers, toners and moisturizers. I moisturize all the time. And I use an SPF 30 moisturizer on my face as well. Thanks for all the fab tips!
