We grew up in a completely different time than our children did. While we laid out in the sun-drenched in tanning oil and without an ounce of sunscreen on us, our kids, on the other hand, know just how damaging the sun can be, and tanning oil is a lot harder to find than it used to be. Whether you yourself are in your twenties or thirties, or if you have young children, there’s one thing to know about your skin: it’s never too early to start taking good care of it. Here’s why.
Good Habits Start Young
You teach your kids to chew with their mouths shut, mind their manners, and respect others around them when they’re young. Why? Because good habits start young. By getting into the habit of wearing sunscreen every day and even investing in anti-aging skin care products in your early twenties, you can start protecting your skin before you get real visible signs of sun damage.
It’s Easier to Stop It From Getting Worse
Although there are a variety of effective treatments for treating sun damage and fine lines and wrinkles, nothing is going to keep your skin looking young quite as taking care of it, to begin with. It’s easier to stop sun damage from getting worse than treating bad sun damage later on.
Good skin care habits start with simple everyday things like washing your face morning and night, wearing a moisturizer and sunscreen every day, and getting regular skin care treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
Remember that you’re never too young to start taking care of your skin and investing in good skin care products. Want to learn more about how Dr. Toni Stockton st Stockton Dermatology can help? Schedule your consultation at our Phoenix office today: (480) 610-6366.
