Hi Sabi, thank you for the question.

Typically we start seeing the ageing process or changes in our thirties however there is no ‘correct’ age to start anti-ageing products/ treatments.

Your main guideline should be the following:

Type of skin you have: lighter or paler skin that burns easily and has freckles is more likely to start ageing sooner than a dark Mediterranean skin
The degree of previous sun damage or condition of skin: the more you tanned the more likely collagen and elastin loss has taken place so the sooner one should try to stimulate these cells
Genetic predisposition to ageing: if your mom and dad look great for their age chances are you have inherited these good genes but if the opposite is true then one should consider anti-ageing products earlier in life
