Why You Should Start Investing in Anti-aging in Your 20s
#1 The Work Hard, Play Hard DecadeIf you’re in your twenty-somethings chances are you’re combining nights of partying, with days of hard work at your first job to jump-start your career. Truth be told, your busy lifestyle as a young adult has already started triggering the aging process. Although you most likely won’t see any signs of aging in our 20s, most of the skincare and lifestyle mistakes you make during this hectic decade will later translate into premature aging in your 30s.
But don’t panic, there’s hope! Specially if you’re willing to act on it sooner than later! In order to keep your complexion youthful for the longest time possible, the earlier you start using anti-aging skin care, the better. But the acceleration of aging can also be caused by diet, stress, sleep deprivation and sun damage, so lifestyle adjustments are also a big must.
Alcohol consumption and smoking are the most obvious NO-NOs. But almost all experts seem to agree that removing your makeup (even after a late night out) and using sunscreen (even during winter) are two small anti-aging lifestyle tips you should stick to for huge results.
#2 First hints of aging are thereEven if you can’t always see the first signs of aging, they’re always present. Let’s face it: we age from the moment we’re born. So don’t be too excited about acne going away after your teenage years and take a break from skin care.
Now that you’re in your 20s, although not dramatically present, trust us, the first hints of aging are slowly but surely emerging. These are typically small changes your skin is experiencing and you should be monitoring carefully, such as larger pores, changes in texture and a – generally speaking – less radiant complexion. Granted, they may be too small to see at first… until one day they’re way too obvious.
We start losing our youthful glow as early as in our quarter of life years by accumulation of sun damage and environmental factors. To prevent further damage, you should religiously follow a skincare routine including anti-aging products.
#3 PreventION INSTEAD OF regretIt’s far more budget-friendly to start investing on preventing wrinkles in your 20s, than spending a small fortune to correct one in your 30s or 40s. It’s not only the cheapest approach in the long run, but also a lot easier, effective and smarter.
Plus, this is not only about vanity, you’ll be preventing skin cancer too. Caring for your skin’s health is not only about the desire to keep your complexion youthful.
Avoiding sun exposure with a day cream containing SPF, for instance, is believed to be the key to fighting aging and cancer with one simple step.
