Anti-ageing woman in her 20s


When faced with the term anti-ageing, most of us will immediately think this only concerns those possibly middle-aged and older, as that is the representation we see most on TV adverts and branding for anti-ageing skin products.

However, the market is much younger than that, with many 20-somethings turning to skincare products to tackle fine lines and wrinkles. Some young adults are even going ahead with cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections to prevent the unwanted older appearance. Is this too early? Or have the younger generation got the right idea?

In today’s blog, we’re answering these questions and giving you everything you need to know about how Aesthetic Skin Clinic can help with your anti-ageing journey.


What Are the First Signs of Ageing Skin?

Skin ages in various ways, not just through fines lines and wrinkles as most people would assume. As your skin ages, it dries out, meaning that keeping on top of moisturising and staying hydrated is as important as ever. Another sign that your skin is starting to age is a loss in elasticity, meaning it will begin to sag which can make you appear tired or sad.

These changes are usually noticeable from around the age of 25, but this differs from person to person and can be affected by a range of factors such as lifestyle, genetics or environment. If you’re worried about the ageing of your skin and want to do something to prevent it, get in touch with our knowledgeable team – we are more than happy to discuss your options.

How To Prevent Wrinkles and Ageing Skin

Unfortunately, we haven’t yet figured out a way to stop ageing altogether, there are plenty of things you can do to slow down the ageing of your skin or even appear younger instantly. One of the options is to implement a proper skincare routine into your day.

Here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we offer Visia Skin Analysis, a diagnostic tool that gives us an in-depth analysis of your skin. This process shows us the precise information needed to decide what your next steps should be. From there, our team of experienced dermatologists can create a completely bespoke skincare routine for you to take away after your appointment.

We use only the best quality products from brands such as Ogai Medical and SkinCeuticals which are designed to tackle ageing skin. Additionally, if you’re looking for an instant fix, our anti-wrinkle treatments in Guernsey may be more suited to your needs. These treatments improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and just about any other fine line or wrinkle on the face.


When Should You Start Using Anti-Ageing Products?

From the age of 18, you can start looking into the best serums, moisturisers, toners, and everything in between to give you a head start at tackling fine lines and sagging. At first, we would recommend using quality UV protection, as sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature ageing. You can find UV protection in moisturisers and makeup, but we would advise the daily use of sun cream. Sun cream blocks the sun’s UV rays, working to slow down the signs of ageing skin and halves the risk of contracting skin cancer if applied daily. As you get older, you can upgrade and add to your skincare routine until you find a set of products that work for you.
