Thinking About Anti-Ageing Skincare In Your 20s



There are a lot of products in the market at the moment targeted towards anti-ageing and sometimes I feel the pressure to begin using skincare that prevents wrinkles and fine lines. I'm only 23! But I only started to become conscious about my smile lines and forehead wrinkles as soon as I heard about products that could reduce them. So today I thought I'd share a guide with products and recommendations that help with anti-ageing but aren't directly for more older, mature skin.



INGREDIENTS

So one of the most popular anti-ageing skincare ingredients is of course Retinol. However, it is a really strong ingredient and should be researched and used with care if you are looking to introduce it into your routine. I'd recommend starting with other products that will help keep your skin young without the use of a strong ingredient, like Retinol. 

Glycolic Acid | This is used as a chemical exfoliant which removes the outer later of skin (dead cells) allowing your skin to regenerate and appear brighter. Using this will help with fine lines and wrinkles and slows down the early signs of ageing. 

Vitamin C | This is a key ingredient due to its antioxidant properties which helps protect the skin from environmental damage that breaks down the collagen in the skin. Collagen keeps the skin plump so you want to prevent that from happening!

Hyaluronic Acid | Although it sounds scary, using products with Hyaluronic Acid in it helps retain the skins moisture, therefore keeping fine lines away. It's widely known for its hydrating properties, which makes the skin appear smoother and healthier. 


PRODUCTS

Eye Cream | If you are conscious about wrinkles around the eyes, I'd highly recommend incorporating eye cream into your daily skincare regime. 

SPF | Obviously protects the skin from harmful UV rays, which can in turn damage the skin and cause the skin to show early signs of ageing. So using SPF can help when it comes anti-ageing.


TOOLS & EXTRAS

Muslin Cloths | By using muslin cloths to wash and cleanse the face, it's less likely to pull and tag at the skin. This helps with preventing the early signs of ageing.

Facial Roller | Using a facial roller can help the skin look like puffy but also helps skincare products absorb better in the skin as well as combating wrinkles! 

Silk Pillow Cases | Apparently cotton pillow cases encourage your skin to pull and therefore wrinkle, so silk or satin pillowcases will prevent that from happening. 


RECOMMENDATIONS

Boots Ingredients Glycolic Acid Toner | Boots have come out with an ingredients range, which is great! It's comparable to The Ordinary, The Inkey List and Revolution Skincare in terms of range and price point. 

The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser | A lightweight moisturiser that leaves my skin feeling fresh and looking glowy.

Nip & Fab Dragons Blood Fix Serum | I use this daily as it contains Hyaluronic Acid and it makes my skin feel really nourished. 

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 | I couldn't recommend this product enough, it's loved by many and for good reason! It's a great lightweight serum that allows any products applied afterwards absorb into the skin so seamlessly. 

Botanics Hydrating Eye Cream 80% Organic | I've started to use this more recently and I'm loving it so far. If you are after an eye cream, try this!

The Body Shop Skin Defence | This product has been out of stock for a while (apparently being discontinued) but if you find a moisturiser with SPF in it, it is sufficient enough for daily use. 

The Body Shop Facial Roller | This is the facial roller I use - I like to use it after I apply oils.



And those are my skincare tips for if you are thinking about anti-ageing in your twenties! Do you have any advice?
