When Should You Start Using Anti-Aging Products?
After receiving some Dermalogica products in my October Glossy Box that were intended for aging, I put them to one side and wasn’t going to use them. That was until one of the lovely ladies at Glossy Box cleared everything up for me and told me that they’re to prevent aging rather than for women who are actually aging. Apparently, the perfect age to use the Dermalogica range is in your 20’s so it’s a perfect time for me.
The fact that those Dermalogica products were aimed at women in their 20’s and above got me thinking; when should a woman use anti-aging products? The women in my family have amazing skin, my grandmother who’s in her 60’s doesn’t have a single wrinkle on her face and that isn’t a lie. My mum’s staying put as well and she’s in her 40’s so, I’m assuming that for me, I won’t need to worry about using anti-aging products so soon. Being black, there’s a saying that ‘black don’t crack’ and as funny as it is, there is some truth to it. The more melanin someone has, the longer it takes for someone to age as you’ve got more ‘SPF’ in your skin if that makes sense. I’m not worried about aging at all right now; I’ve got so many other things to worry about but, if you’re exercising regularly, eating and drinking healthily and keeping a good skincare regime (cleanse, tone and moisturise women!) then you wouldn’t have anything to worry about in the meantime if you’re young.
There are some girls I’ve come across who do use anti-aging products and they’re in their 20’s. Their argument is that if they use products to help with aging now, then they’re effectively not going to age as much as they would had they not used them.
What do you think ladies? What age do you think it’s best to use anti-aging products and do you use them yourself?
