Social networks dictate their own rules, and already at 20, many girls begin to be afraid of wrinkles, resorting to injection techniques to maintain youth. Cosmetologists say: such drastic measures are not needed. It is enough to choose the right home care and visit a specialist periodically. Dermato-cosmetologist Victoria Britko (@ dr.viktoria_13_) told what young girls should not do, how to choose the texture of the cream and why it is imperative to use SPF products regardless of age and time of year.

“Before the age of thirty, few people thought about aging before. Today the situation has changed dramatically. Young, twenty-year-old girls inject botulinum toxin and resort to hardware techniques. At an early age, this is not necessary. Up to 25 years of age, the skin has a high regenerative capacity. In the absence of serious problems, non-invasive procedures and the right care are sufficient. In some cases, for example, with excessive dryness, mesotherapy or biorevitalization can be done. In the complex therapy of acne, plasmolifting, resurfacing without damaging the surface layer of the skin, phototherapy helps. I repeat, if these problems do not exist, home care selected by a specialist after diagnosis is sufficient. Up to 25 you need to pay special attention to cleansing, moisturizing and SPF-protection - the main factor of skin photoaging."
Young skin care rules
Cleansing. Thorough cleansing of the skin is the main rule of care, regardless of age. A three-stage system twice a day is a mandatory minimum. After washing, be sure to use a facial toner to restore the pH. Remember to rinse off the micellar water.
In the morning, for washing, it will be enough to have a soft foam without aggressive components in the composition - it will remove excess sebum and other impurities that have accumulated overnight. In the evening, you can use hydrophilic oil (an excellent remedy for the autumn-winter period) - it allows you to skip the first stage of cleansing: micellar water or milk to remove makeup.
Moisturizing. All skin types need to be hydrated. If this is not done, excessive dryness can lead to early wrinkles. Remember: even if you have problem skin, do not use products containing alcohol - they further stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce secretions. How often me face cream read here.
UV protection. UV rays are the main cause of skin photoaging. Whether you're 18 or 30, use SPF all year round. Ultraviolet rays reach the surface of the earth even in cloudy conditions. They destroy collagen fibers and negatively affect the skin. The SPF factor is found in almost all tonal bases. In winter, there are enough of them. In summer, you need to use products with a stronger protector.
Rules for choosing cosmetics for young skin
Products must be appropriate for the type of skin. Funds work only when selected correctly. Identify your skin type with a specialist - this way you can understand what it lacks. If it is oily, the composition should contain antibacterial components (aloe, salicylic acid, tea tree extract). Look for oils and hyaluronic acid in dry skin products.
Light textures. Lighter textures are suitable for young skin - emulsions, gels. After using them, there should be no feeling of tightness and discomfort. Once a week, you can use a more oily hypoallergenic cream. Don't overfeed young skin.
Formulated without anti-aging ingredients. Cosmetics for young skin should not contain "heavy" artillery in the form of anti-aging components. They will come in handy closer to 30, when collagen synthesis begins to decline. Up to 25 skin is enough for regeneration and restoration. If you use creams with anti-aging ingredients from the age of 18, they will no longer be effective when you really need them.
Non - comedogen. Look for products that won't clog your pores to avoid causing comedones. Read the composition of not only care, but also decorative cosmetics. If your skin is prone to breakouts, do not use heavy tones. Many brands have special lines for young skin - give preference to them.
No aggressive surfactants. Aggressive surfactants dry out the skin. And the more you dry it, the more actively the sebaceous glands will begin to work. Aggressive surfactants destroy the lipid barrier - the skin becomes vulnerable to external irritants. This can cause inflammation and rashes.
Good basic care. Young skin is not a reason to try everything without understanding the composition. The quality of cosmetics plays a big role in it. Any skin problem is easier to prevent than to solve later.
Additional care products. Under 25 years old, it is not forbidden to do light peels (in the event that there are no active acne). But only superficial. Buy a fruit acid or lactic acid roll-up product and use it once or twice a week. You can use masks that are selected according to skin type, taking into account individual characteristics. And remember one rule: beautiful skin depends not only on care, but also on nutrition.
