Lately many women in their early 20’s to mid 30’s have been coming to me and asking me when they should start using anti-aging skincare products. My answer: it’s never too early to start a good skincare regimen. I believe that they key to achieving flawless skin is to keep a good balance of cleansers and toners. Everyone who wants to achieve flawless looking skin should keep a good balance of cleansers, toners, and moisturizers, and if you get home late from a night out never forget to cleanse and moisturize because these are so important to maintain good skin.
Don’t use harsh, heavy cleansers that strip the skin. If you’re over the age of 15, use a gentle, effective cleanser, and a good moisturizer. Eye creams are also essential to beautiful looking skin; everyone should use one. The skin around the eyes is very thin and delicate and should be moisturized just like the rest of the face.
In recent years the press has been fixated on the “who’s had botox?” question. On one hand I don’t think injectables should be used before 30, like many celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Heidi Montag have been doing. However Botox can be preventative, and if you start using it before deep lines appear, it can eliminate the word wrinkles from your vocabulary. Botox does not distort your face, as some may believe; it simply smoothes out wrinkles and prevents you from getting them.
Luxury skincare brands such as LaPrairie and Crème de la Mer have great creams, however people tend to not use enough of the product because the product is so pricey. I tell my clients to put on their moisturizer as they would a mask. You can never have enough moisturizer on! I wouldn’t recommend the classic Crème de la Mer, however the lighter lotion works quite nicely
