Skincare more important than dermal fillers in early 20s
04 July 2011Experts have advised that high quality skincare and a good routine could be a more effective option for those in their early twenties than Botox. Lines and wrinkles are caused by a combination of lifestyle choices and damage caused by the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, as well as environmental factors such as pollution. Men and women are today being advised to invest in skin care that offers a combination of protection and hydration, preferably with an in-built sun protection factor (SPF) of 25 or more.With a significant rise in the number of young people opting for Botox, American psychologist Debbie Then puts the trend down to changes in how society views ageing. “We look at aging and any sign of ageing as a disease," she said. “Therefore, people want to try to prevent that earlier and earlier. People don’t even want to be over 30 these days, and nobody wants to look 30,” she added. As well as following a good skin care regime, experts believe healthy eating, not smoking, and sun cream can all help to slow down the ageing process.
