Don’t reach out for your mother’s anti-aging cream just yet. However, ensure that you develop good skin care habits during this time.

Your lifestyle plays a vital role in how your skin looks in the 20’s. An unhealthy diet, smoking, psychological stress and excessive alcohol consumption are all responsible for the formation of free radicals. Open pores, fine lines and wrinkles are some of the most common signs of premature aging and if you notice them in your early 20s then it’s a good time to start using anti-aging products.

Certain other factors such as pollution, UV radiation and genetics can also cause skin to age faster. Therefore, consulting a dermatologist who can determine the needs of your skin is the best thing to do during these years. Considering the rising pollution levels, especially in cities, several experts recommend the use of anti-aging products from the age of 25. An early start can provide the skin with essential vitamins, nutrition and care thereby delaying the signs of aging such as uneven skin tone, blemishes, open pores, rough and irritated skin.
