How to prevent aging skin in your 20s

Skin aging starts during your 20s. With less collagen production and your elastin decreasing, you have to be proactive when taking care of your skin before you even see any signs of aging. It’s easier to prevent your skin from the signs of aging than repair the damage. 

First, let’s break down the signs of aging that you need to look out for:

1. Wrinkles


Crow’s feet, frown lines, nasolabial folds, these wrinkles are just some of the fine lines that you need to look out for. 

2. Dull skin

Lacking your glow? This might be a sign of aging. Dull skin is usually caused by stress and lack of rest and an unhealthy lifestyle. This is the result of dead skin cell build-up on the surface of the skin.

3. Age spots

Age spots

Varying in size, shape, and darkness, age spots, also known as sun spots, are flat dark areas in the skin that usually appear on spots that are exposed to the sun like your hands, face, and arms. 

Now that you know some of the signs you need to keep tabs on, here are ways you can do to prevent them as early as now:

1. Sun protection

Proven and tested, one of the biggest causes of aging is lack of sun protection. Even when you’re indoors and you have exposure to windows or glass doors, UV rays can still penetrate and damage your skin. The go-to product is sunscreen. If you’re going outdoors for a walk or a hike, there’s no harm in adding an extra layer of protection. Look for hats that have UPF 50+ protection like GearTOP’sNavigator Series. 

2. Don’t drink or smoke

Don’t drink or smoke

Toxins damage cellular structures and DNA which results in damaging your skin. Occasional drinking and smoking may not jolt your skin from aging on overdrive but it will have some amount of permanent damage. Smoking reduces blood flow in the skin and exposes your skin to external toxins. 

3. Know your skin

Know your skin

You may be curious as to what your skin needs to prevent aging. The first thing you need to know about is knowing your skin type so you know what products to use. If you’re dry skin, oily, or a combination depending on the climate. Studies show that dry skin tends to age faster than oily skin. Make sure you get the right moisturizer for your skin type.

4. Eat healthily

Eat healthily

Consuming fresh fruits and vegetables can help prevent damage. With good nutrition, you can help your body boost your immune system and help slower premature aging.
