Wondering when to start using anti-ageing skincare products, what to use and why? You’ve come to the right place.

When should you start using anti-ageing skincare?

Anti-ageing products are undoubtedly one of the most popular categories in the skincare world but also one of the most confusing. So, today we’re taking a deep dive into the who, what, when and why of anti-ageing skincare.

Keep reading to learn all about what anti-ageing skincare is, how it works, who should be using it (and when to start!) plus one of the best products to try.

What is anti-ageing skincare and how does anti-ageing skincare work?

Anti-ageing products are designed to combat - yep, you guessed it - signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven texture, pigmentation and loss of elasticity or firmness. The way in which anti-ageing skincare does this is by reducing, preventing and even masking these complexion concerns. 

Quality anti-ageing products are formulated with potent ingredients that work to fight these visual ageing factors we’ve just spoken about. The most effective formulas usually contain clinically proven ingredients such as retinol or peptides. Hydrating ingredients are also key when it comes to reducing signs of ageing as these help to give the skin a plumper, more youthful appearance. 

Who should consider using anti-ageing skincare and when should you start?

OK - now for the million dollar question! Anti-ageing products are suitable for pretty much anyone wanting to reduce signs of ageing and we recommend starting earlier rather than later (honestly, it’s almost never too early to start!). 

Science has long known that the skin’s collagen production process declines with age. For that reason, we suggest starting an anti-ageing skincare routine in your ‘20s (ideally!) and getting onto it no later than in your ‘30s.

It’s best to be proactive rather than reactive if you’d like to keep your skin looking its best with age as it’s much more effective (and easier) to prevent signs of ageing than to reduce them once they’ve already occurred.
