There are a plethora of creams, gels, and serums to choose from when it comes to anti-aging products. Many guarantee to get rid of fine lines, while others promise to depuff, desag, and debag.
While many of these products do, indeed, live up to their promises – for the most part – the old adage: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is of supreme relevance. Ergo, waiting until the signs of aging become apparent may not be the wisest idea.
Estheticians and dermatologists alike have all speculated that an anti-aging regimen should be established earlier than previously thought.
Many of the aforementioned specialists champion more than just the SPF and moisturizer for those as young as their 20s (after all, keeping the skin moisturized is pivotal to warding off fine lines, and an SPF prevents the most detrimental kind of aging – photo-aging) – eating right, sleeping well, and minimizing facial expressions are all fantastic weapons any concerned 20-something can use to keep her skin ageless for years to come.
Of course, users of injectables such as Botox seem to be getting younger, as well. While this may be pushing the boundaries for those in their 20s and earl 30s, the trend seems to be catching on.
Being twenty-three-years-old, the pertinence of ant-aging is imminent. I could not imagine, however, going so far as sticking a needle in my forehead in order to repress any minuscule signs of facial “maturation.”
When do you think steps should be taken to prevent aging – and how young is too young for Botox?
