We have addressed the question of age before in this blog but I do regularly talk to young women who say, “Why would I have any interest in anti-aging cream when I’m in my 20’s?” And I always assure them that there is no need to replicate what their skin is already doing really well for itself. BUT, people in their 20’s often believe themselves to be bullet-proof. It’s normal.
We all believed love was forever, our looks would never fade, and we knew everything. I remember telling my mother how much I knew. At least she was kind enough not to last. But even a baby – yes, a baby! – needs some anti-aging attention. What kind? Sunscreen. Babies need protection from the sun. Every human being does. Unprotected skin shows damage later in life. So if you are in your 20’s there are also things you can do now, that mean you look awesome later!
Let’s start with the sunscreen / sunblock. If you spend time in the sun, you need to have it on. You may think a tan looks wonderful with a bikini but years later you will be horrified at the fine lines at your cleavage. So use a self-tanner to get that glow and protect your skin at any age to make sure that the most damaging factor to breakdown your skin does not get a chance to do so.
Now, let’s talk about cleansing. You can buy any cleanser you want, but purchasing one that has no parabens or harsh detergents will help your skin look lovely for years. Believe it or not, the wrong cleanser can actually accelerate aging. You don’t want anything with SLS, parabens, phthalates, or triclosan touching your skin. Keep it pure, keep it toxin-free, keep your youth years longer.
What else? You know what we are going to say – moisturize! No matter how young you are your skin can be dried by sun, by wind, by a dry atmosphere or a heater in the winter. To seal in moisture, and protect that skin from environmental factors, you need a good all-purpose moisturizer. Read your labels carefully and avoid anything with parabens, phthalates, artificial fragrances, or fillers. We suggest our best all purpose moisturizer, Maximum Moisture™. You can buy it here and preserve that gorgeous skin for years!
