What Age Should You Start Using Antiaging Lotions?

by Tiffany

When do you start aging enough to use anti aging products? I'm in my 20's and I am already concerned about the appearance of wrinkles. Although I feel I am too young to start using anti aging products.

At what age would be a sensible time to start using them? Is it better to start using them young and prevent the causes of aging or wait until you are an age when the signs of aging are more apparent? What sort of anti aging product would be recommended to a younger person?

Will it help with larger pores, unfirm skin and slight wrinkles? Are there special antiaging products for my age group and are there effective antiaging products that can help with dark circles around the eyes?

What Age To Start Using Antiaging Products
by: George Parigian Jr.

Hi Tiffany,

Thank you for an interesting question!

First of all, you start aging from the day you are born, although it does not become apparent until much later. Thus there is no time that is “too soon” to begin an antiaging program, although certain aspects of antiaging like hormone replacement are not needed until around your 40’s and beyond.

The focus of antiaging when you are young is to prevent aging, such as in your skin. Being careful about sun exposure, keeping your skin clean and hydrated, and protecting it from the elements like cold and wind are very important.

Avoiding excess alcohol consumption (not to mention recreational drug use) is also critical, because alcohol and drugs accelerate aging because they produce free radicals. Loss of hyaluronic acid in your skin is not much of a problem at your age, but a supplement containing hyaluronic acid will still make your skin look smoother and softer.

A clean diet, which means lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins like organic grass fed beef, wild fish, and organically raised chicken are good protein sources. A full spectrum multi vitamin/mineral complex, fish oil, and a good antioxidant blend, round out the nutritional supplementation that you should use at any age.

All these strategies will also help with dark circles under your eyes. There are a number of products on the market Like “ProVectin,” and “Under Eye Rescue Cream,” that would be of benefit.

There is a product I like very much which is called NaPCA made by Twinlab. You spray it on and it keeps your skin hydrated and soft. It comes in plain and Aloe.

For Isotonic supplements, there is a great one called “Beauty Blend” which contains an antioxidant mix and also hyaluronic acid to keep skin supple. It is a powder that you mix with water and take as a drink.

Just to keep things honest, I am a distributor for Isotonix supplements including Beauty Blend, but not for NaPCA.

So to make it short and simple, here are a few simple rules:

Keep your skin clean and well hydrated
Eat healthy, avoid excess sugar and alcohol
Get regular exercise
Get eight hours of good quality sleep a night
Protect yourself from excess sun exposure and from cold and wind
Take a good supplement and antioxidant

Doing these things will maximize the health and appearance of your skin and also your internal health as well.

Not only will you look good now, but you will continue to maintain a youthful look into your later years.

If you need more help with this, contact me via the form on my contact page and I will try and get you more information.

Good Luck and Good Health,
