The 4 questions about anti-aging.
What’s the right age to start using anti-aging products?
If you ask me this Question,what’s the right age to start using anti aging products, I will say you can start right from birth. But due to certain circumstances, such as tenderness of the skin and certain ingredients in a product,I’ll suggest that you start at 18. The best anti-aging product to use is a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Because UV rays are one major factors of premature aging and it doesn’t care about your age. As you grow through your 20s, and older, it will be good to incorporate vit.C & E containing products to help clear signs of aging and also repair damage caused by exposure to sun, pollution and other aging agents.
What ingredients to look for in anti-aging products.
This is also a very important, crucial, and special point to note. There are a lot of products out there that promise to give you youthful radiant skin, but do they really work? The popular ingredients we know are collagen, peptides, vitamin C, retinol, niacinamide. There are a lot of controversies when it comes to collagen-containing products. Collagen has a large molecule which makes it impenetrable. This means it just settles on the skin and the skin won’t reap its benefits. Since the collagen present in the skin depletes eventually as we age, why not use ingredients that can boost its production? Such as retinols, niacinamide,vitamin C, ferulic acid.
Are certain skin types more susceptible to aging faster?
Besides sun exposure, as it is one of the biggest factors of premature aging, lack of moisture also counts. So among the 5 skin types we have, those with dry skin are more prone to premature aging.
