It has become a cultural thing across the whole world, no doubt starting in Hollywood and finding its way to Australia. To be forever young and beautiful is the obsession even young women in their 20s are now concerned about. The idea of growing old gracefully, for some people, is now considered a grey myth.
So how old should you start using anti-ageing creams and treatments?
First, let’s start with the concept that small doses of sun exposure and skin care earlier in your life will definitely help you in the long run and will hopefully delay the need to take advantage of anti-ageing treatments. Let’s dig deeper…
According to experts, you should incorporate an eye cream, hydrating serum, face cleanser and moisturiser. In addition to these skin care products, it’s also recommended to use preventative anti-ageing skin care creams. Plus, remember to apply sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 or 50.
During this time, your skin cream should have an active component that improves the structure of your skin. You should consider using a product that contains Vitamin A. Should you need stronger treatment options, then you can visit a skin professional to use a non-invasive radiofrequency anti-ageing treatment.
The 40s & 50s
In this period of your life, you should focus on products that provide nourishment for your skin, and will include a combination of anti-ageing skin care that will see to the unique needs of your skin. No matter what your needs are, remember to apply sunscreen products that have a high SPF.
At around the age of 40, people are more likely to explore skin rejuvenating, energy-based treatments such as lasers, pulsed light, radiofrequency and ultrasound, which are services often provided in conjunction with injectables.
If you are younger, and not interested in undergoing invasive treatments, there are a host of alternative non-invasive treatments such as LED therapy and skin needling that can help correct various skin conditions.
