Recently I posted a comment about youthful anti-againg strategies on The Beauty Brains, a great truthful blog that deals with beauty myths and misconseptions. When I started the No-Nonsense Beauty Blog I thought that my experiences would be interesting to women over forty who were not liking what they saw in the mirror. Over the past few months I was surprised at the volume of emails and comments I’ve received from teens and twenty-somethings who, like the writer on Beauty Brains, wanted to know what they can do to prevent aging.
Thinking about the best approach to early anti-aging intervention, I realized that every decade offered new challenges and opportunities. For the next few weeks, Fridays and Saturdays will focus on anti-aging at every stage of life. For example, teen bodies are still growing, so real aging is just not happening. My biggest concern for high schoolers is the use of overly-rich products that will provoke acne breakouts. This is especially true of sunscreens and a top reason why teens avoid sunblocks. That’s a real problem since youthful sun damage drives adult skin discoloation, enlarged pores and skin cancer.
This mini- series will look at what changes each decade brings, describe an age -appropriate no-nonsense skin care routine and what special techniques ( ie lasers, peels and fillers) work best at every age. Tomorrow I will look at the three top age-blockers for teens and recommend key products and procedures. To help me get this right, I would love to hear from you
