Anti-Aging Skin Care Routine:
3 Reasons to Start One as Early as Possible
Your skin starts showing aging signs in your 30s and 40s — fine lines, thinner, duller skin, pigmentation, and less fullness and elasticity. Many adults pay attention to their skin when these changes start happening. But the best anti-aging skin care routine is one you begin before the signs of aging are obvious. Investing in your skin today (also known as preventative anti-aging) is the most innovative way to keep your skin youthful as long as possible.
At what age should you start an anti-aging skin care routine?
The best time to start a skincare routine is in your early to mid-20s. Just like diet and exercise for a healthy body, it’s really never too early to do the same for your skin. An anti-aging skincare routine is a good idea long before you notice signs of aging skin.
If you’re past your 20s or 30s, that doesn’t mean it’s too late. Start a routine as early as you can. You’ll still notice changes in your skin’s health and quality. Investing in research-backed anti-aging technology like Tissue X® will provide the most support for aging skin and continue preventing further damage.
Here are some of the most significant reasons to prioritize skincare now.
1 Skin changes begin earlier than you think.
Skin often looks its best in the 20s and early 30s. But experts know that many things are changing during this time.
While things on the outside might look good, due to hormonal changes, your skin starts to make fewer important substances like:
- Elastin, a protein that provides structure to the skin, maintaining shape as muscles contract and skin stretches
- Collagen, a protein that helps keep skin plump and prevent it from sagging
- Hyularonic acid, a natural sugar in the skin that holds water and helps keep the skin plump and hydrated
Collagen and hyularonic acid decrease dramatically after your 20s. A quality skincare regimen helps slow down the rate of depletion.
Common signs of aging skin include:
- Dry, itchy, or rough-feeling skin
- Fine lines or wrinkles
- Thinner skin on your face
- Hanging or sagging skin
- Sensitive skin
- Bruising more easily
As dermatologic surgeon Dr. Dendy Engelman told Byrdie, you can never be too young for targeting and preventing aging signs.
2 Your skin is exposed to damage at any age.
Our skin’s number one function is protection, but many things give it a run for its money.
Skin damage and aging can happen faster because of:
- UV rays (the sun and tanning)
- Environmental pollution
- Poor lifestyle choices
- Stress and busy lives
Aging begins before we see it. Thankfully, you can help your skin protect you and stay healthy by caring for it, too.
3 You can prevent and reduce the damage by starting today.
Again, experts say you can start using anti-aging processes in your 20s and beyond. There is no cure for aging (at least not yet!), but you can focus on prevention. Slow the process and preserve the youthful qualities of your skin by treating it well right now.
What is the best skincare routine for anti-aging?
If you’re not sure how to start an anti-aging skin care routine, you’re not alone. There are tons of product options out there, as companies know that anti-aging is big business, and that can make things confusing.
It’s best to, as much as possible, look at what the science and experts are saying. Then, try out different options to find what works for you.
Any company can use flashy packaging or buzzwords to make their product seem impressive. But is the proof in the pudding? Look for the evidence and see what others are saying.
Start simply. Here’s the routine our experts at FRANZ Skincare recommend:
- Wash your face gently with a cleanser that works well for your skin type.
- Hydrate with a face serum that gets deep into your skin’s layers.
- Use an eye serum for the delicate skin around your eyes where the first signs of aging often show. This helps with fine lines and dark circles.
- Use a moisturizing face cream to lock in hydration and protect the skin.
Do everything above every morning and night.
And twice a week, we recommend the following:
- Use a microcurrent face mask to tone, tighten, smooth, and hydrate your face.
- Apply a stem cell ampoule to your face before applying the mask for ultimate protection and repair.
After the first two weeks, switch to once a week for maintenance.
FRANZ Skincare’s masks use a microcurrent technology called Tissue X®, which creates tiny, rejuvenating waves on the face using natural physics. And we back up our claims, as this technology has been proven in peer-reviewed journals.
Unlike other anti-aging products, our masks actually increase skin permeability, opening up the pores to allow larger hyularonic acid molecules — which means better hydration. You get instant hydration, which is key for healthy skin, deep into the skin’s layers.
Best skincare for the early 20s and 30s
Young people often lead busy lives. Preventative skin care is about protecting your skin as much as possible while any reversing damage that comes with a fun, chaotic lifestyle. The Jet Microcurrent Mask is perfect for 20- and 30-somethings in this way. Take an at-home facelift with you on-the-go, no matter what’s happening in your personal life.
