Healthy and nourished skin is desirable at any age. From face masks to anti aging cream, the beauty industry markets countless products to women who want younger looking skin. But what about prevention and maintaining what you have now? If you’re in your 20s or 30s, you probably still have healthy looking skin, but you’re starting to notice a few wrinkles or pigmented areas here and there. The best approach to preventing signs of aging is protection and care early on.
In the last few years, the beauty industry has been taking a new perspective towards anti aging skin care. Allure Magazine released a statement that they would not be using the term “anti-aging” in the future. Instead, they wanted to focus on aging gracefully and appreciating beauty at every stage. Don’t worry about giving up your retinol just yet – many “aging gracefully” advocates still support taking care of your skin and taking preventative measures to protect and nourish natural skin.
Developing a consistent and streamlined skincare regimen is the smartest way to take care of the skin you have now. Using too many products opens up an increased possibility of negative reactions -inflammation, acne, dry patches – therefore using skincare essentials for your unique composition actively encourages and protects your skin.
Find collections formulated for your skin type – oily, combo, dry, you know the drill – and check the ingredients list. Look for toxins and chemicals that dry out skin and don’t contribute to its health or radiance. Common ones include paraffins, parabens, and sulfates. Natural and organic ingredients are always better, now and in the long run.
While your anti aging serum probably works wonders on firming skin and decreasing unwanted smile lines, prevention and protection is paramount in your 20s and early 30s. Use an SPF 20+ sunscreen every day, summer through winter. However, stay away from chemical sunscreens that have harmful ingredients that generate free radicals, which are a major cause of the signs of aging. Zinc oxide and antioxidants naturally protect you from the sun safely and prevent skin damage.
Lastly, self-care is an often-forgotten influence on your skin’s appearance and prevention against signs of aging. Alcohol, SPF-free days in the sun, copious amounts of stress, and not drinking enough water all affect your skin appearance and health. One of the easiest fixes is hydrating consistently. Make it a goal to drink at least 3-4 glasses per day. Keep a water bottle at your desk and refill throughout the day. If you exercise, drink ample amounts of water before, during, and after your workout.
Keeping your skin hydrated supports its overall health. Supplement with a potent vitamin C booster to retain moisture and even skin tone. Next to hydrating, getting enough sleep is important, and not just for your skin health. Getting enough sleep allows your cells to regenerate and reproduce, crucial for damaged, acne-prone, or dehydrated skin.
Consistency in skin and self-care is vital to prevent signs of aging early on. If you’re hesitant to approach anti-aging skincare because of its traditionally negative connotations, think of it this way. You’re taking care of your skin at its natural peak, and preventing signs of aging means hydrating, protecting, and encouraging healthy skin.
