When is Too Young to Start Worrying About Wrinkles?

If your six year old child is obsessing over their appearance and is worried about the onset of premature wrinkles, you may have a problem. However, if your teenager is concerned about wrinkles and wants to get a head start on their anti-aging skincare routine then you really have nothing to worry about. In fact, starting the habit of using good skin care products now will only benefit your child later on. Read on to learn more about what skin care items your teenager should be using and why.

It’s never too early to start protecting your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. In fact, you shouldn’t wait until you’re in your teens to do so. If your young child is spending hours and hours in the sun everyday, they should be wearing sunscreen everyday as well. As a good rule of thumb, add sunscreen to your child or teenagers list of things to do everyday. For instance, make bed, eat breakfast, brush teeth, and put on sunscreen.

Anti-aging face cream
Anti-aging face creams are typically filled with ingredients like antioxidants and retinol, which all aid in protecting your skin and replenishing your skin as you age. Simply have your teenager apply an anti-aging face cream both morning and night, focusing on the forehead and around the mouth.

Anti-Aging Eye Cream
Everyone as they age will start to get some wrinkles around their eyes. To help your teenager’s eyes stay moisturized and to prevent against early signs of aging, buy them an anti-aging eye cream. Typically applied at night using small circular motions around the eyes, anti-aging eye cream helps to moisturize the delicate skin around the eyes which prevents against wrinkles.

If your teenager is expressing interest in skincare and wrinkle prevention, try encouraging them to use a combination of sunscreen, anti-aging face cream, and anti-aging eye cream. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. Tresley today!
