Lahore: From minimizing sun damage to deep nourishment for your skin, a thorough skincare regime started as early as in your 20s, can prove to be anti-aging and youthful, experts say. “An effective anti-aging skincare routine is a daily investment. Building a skincare routine with our daily habits will have a bigger impact on what we see in the mirror.
Your care for your skin is very personal and it differs from person to person,” Dr. Navin Taneja, Director of the National Skin Centre told IANSlife. After all, as we get older, age amounts to a fraction of skin health, and habits such as smoking and not getting enough sleep can result in premature wrinkles and more.

His top skincare tips for youthful skin results:
1. Use sunblock
For healthy and glowing skin, wear sunscreen every day, and proactively protect yourself from exposure to harmful rays. It’s a key regimen for skin health. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin and cause skin aging. Even when it is cloudy outside you still need to protect yourself from the harmful rays.
SPF 30-50/PA+++ sunscreen should be applied half an hour before sun exposure and be applied at least thrice a day. Sun damage is cumulative, and regular use of sunblock slows down signs of premature aging like pigmentation, fine wrinkling, and collagen depletion of the skin.
2. Try a pH balanced cleanser
A big mistake would be not washing your skin with the right cleanser. Harsh soaps and cleansers with harmful chemicals can make your skin rough, overly dry, or overly oily. Soap-free mild pH-balanced cleansers are most suitable and give excellent results, preserving a healthy layer of natural oil and moisture on the skin.
3. An antioxidant-rich diet
What you eat is quick to show on your skin. Antioxidant-rich foods combat damage caused by stress, pollution, and poor diet. The free radicals speed up the aging process and this is exactly what antioxidants help fight against. Blueberries, avocados, kale, oranges, pears, sweet potatoes, wild salmon, and watermelon are foods that help the skin cells stay healthy. Fatty fish, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds are rich sources of Omega-3 fatty acids—essential for moisturized skin.
“To keep your skin looking young, it is best to start taking care of your skin when you are young,” agrees Dolly Kumar, cosmetic engineer and founder-director of Spinella. As per her, skin benefits from staying hydrated, always using sunscreen before going outside, getting good sleep, and regular exercise.
“However, it is imperative to use products that contain no harsh chemicals like parabens and sulfates. Following a CTM regime, every day with the right products devoid of harsh chemicals helps keep skin always young and fresh. Skincare products made with superfoods also add a lot of vitamin C and antioxidants that protect skin from free radicals,” she concludes.
Add vitamin A and C to your regimen:
As we age, our preventative skincare routine should start to evolve. With that in mind, Dr. Doft has the ultimate game plan for your late twenties and 30s. “As you approach your 30s, it is great to start using vitamin A (retinol) and C, which will help brighten your skin, catch-free radicals and stimulate collagen formation,” she explains.
