For a long time, the use of anti-ageing skincare was associated with mature women. As age rips off moisture and suppleness, intensive ingredients are used bring skin back to its almost younger self.
The word anti-ageing itself is a reason for such perception. It was not a range young women would like to be associated with.
But this trend is bucking with the philosophy of preventive skincare, and young, skincare-savvy customers realise that the longer you can keep your youthful skin in pristine condition, the better it will look as you age.
Contrary to skeptics’ beliefs that the generation is averse to ageing (by using a category once reserved for their mothers) young women are embracing their skin and looks… they just want to maintain it for as long as they can.
Anti-ageing skincare has wonderful regenerative benefits. Rich and soothing, its consistent use may help delay skin ageing, keeping skin plump and supple.
So, no, you are never too young for anti-ageing skincare because the earlier you start, the faster your skin will benefit and the longer it can stay youthful and smooth.
If you don’t know where to start, here are some anti-ageing product ideas for younger women.
