Why You Should Start Early to Prevent Wrinkles

Many people probably wonder when exactly they should start looking into an anti-aging skin care regimen. Are your 20s too early? If you wait till your 40s, will that be too late? The answer is simple. You should start as early as possible. Now, this doesn’t mean subjecting your skin to rigorous procedures like Botox or chemical peels. We simply mean that you should take preventative measures based on your age, skin type and lifestyle, whether those methods be through commercial products like anti-aging creams or more natural decisions like wearing a hat out in the sun.

What many young women don’t even realize is that all of those daily activities and emotions contribute to the emergence of wrinkles. Having a picnic outside, frowning too much, sleeping on the sides of your face, flirting, laughing and just living life causes wrinkles. However, the biggest wrinkle-inducing culprit of them all is not age, it’s the sun. Any average Joe or Jane will experience sun exposure at least once per day, and any unprotected exposure to its powerful UV rays will be a detriment to your skin. These rays are so powerful that they reach past cloudy skies, tinted windshields and even the cold of winter. Other factors that cause to the degeneration of your skin cells are skin inflammation/irritation, cellular oxidation from the sun & pollution and other environmental factors.

With daily skin care maintenance, you lower the risk of experiencing health complications such as skin cancer, infections or diseases on top of adding the benefits of healthier and smoother looking skin. The worst thing you can do when trying to prevent visible aging is ignore your skin. Just like receiving a flu shot to avoid catching the flu, you should take care of your skin to prevent future health issues or skin degradation. And in terms of when to start investing in specific anti-aging products, it usually depends on your skin type. The drier your skin, the earlier you should start; the more oily your skin, the later you can push it back. If your skin type is focused towards the middle, called combination skin, you should start considering use of these products in your early to mid 20s.
