When Should I Start Using Anti-Aging Products?


We've discussed using anti-aging products in your twenties before, and every expert we spoke with agreed that A) the best thing you can do is wear sunscreen religiously, and B) there's no such thing as “too young' for preventing skin damage... by wearing sunscreen. Are you sensing a trend? Find a mild, broad spectrum sunblock like Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection Primer, which also makes a great base. Or try a hydrating version like Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream (a little extra moisture can't hurt). You could even go all out and get NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention UVA Sunscreen, which specifically exists to seal your skin in like some kind of youth Tupperware.

Besides keeping any and all UV away from your face forever, the experts also agree that using overly harsh anti-aging products can actually make wrinkles and texture issues worse, not better. So regardless of your age, if you're piling on the retinol or glycolic acid and wondering why you have more fine lines than you did before, it's probably because your routine is inadvertently drying out and sensitizing your skin.
