While we are in our twenties, we tend to think our skin does not really need a lot of care. We focus more on the damage acne from our teens caused. However, there are deeper problems our skin faces and the best time to address them is in our twenties. If you ask any elderly woman with great skin, she will tell you that genes aside, she started taking care of her skin early.
Thanks to a supply of youth hormones like estrogen, women in their twenties enjoy radiant skin. Notwithstanding, women should begin being proactive about anti-aging in their twenties. Research shows that as early as age 25 our skin’s two structural proteins—collagen (which keeps it firm, taut, and resilient) and elastin (which gives skin its flexibility, enabling it to stretch out and then snap back into place) start to decrease.
Expression lines around the forehead and eyes may also be more visible and you may see the beginnings of age spots. You also start seeing the effects of sun damage in your thirties. So as they say “Prevention is better than cure”.
Most people are under the impression that starting to care for your skin early is dangerous because you expose yourself to chemicals. This is not true, especially if you know exactly what you use and its functions on your skin.
