We’re back with another blog post and this time we’re talking future proofing your skin.
Here at EF Skin, we believe it’s never too early to start taking care of your skin but you’ll be surprised at how many people in their 20’s don’t consider it a priority.
A simple skincare routine with a cleanser, serum and moisturiser is a great start. But if you really want to future proof your skin, anti-aging products are the way to go.
When should I start using anti-aging products?
Now, we know what you’re thinking "aren’t I a little young to be worrying about wrinkles?" Truth is it’s better to start using anti-ageing skincare products at an early age, say mid-20s, than in your late 30s.
Research shows that as early as age 25, your body will start to produce less collagen and elastin – two key proteins that keep skin flexible, firm and taut. By using anti-ageing products now, you’ll prevent a lot of damage to your skin and keep it looking more radiant and youthful as you age.
It’s all about looking at the bigger picture and thinking about how you want your skin to look in the future - not just being content with how beautiful and radiant it looks right now!
How to choose the best anti-ageing skincare products
With so many different anti-ageing products available, it can be difficult knowing which are the best ones for your skin.
Our best advice is to choose anti-ageing products suitable for your skin type. Is your skin very oily or is it a little on the dry side? Do you suffer from sensitivity or have a lot of breakouts? Always check the ingredients in skincare products and see which skin types they are suitable for.
While we’re on the subject of anti-aging and future proofing your skin, we want to take this opportunity to introduce you to an exciting new vegan-friendly brand that we’ve recently launched in the UK.
