If you’re in your 20s, chances are good you’re still curating the perfect skin care routine. In between your internet deep dives and countless hours spent on YouTube trying to determine what skin care products to use every day, you may have asked yourself if you should use eye cream in your 20s—and if yes, which one? Instead of getting overwhelmed walking down the skin care aisle, we’re sharing our must-have eye creams for your 20s, as well as answers to a few other eye cream-related questions you might have.
DO YOU NEED EYE CREAM IN YOUR 20S?
While you don’t need eye cream in your 20s, it’s a good idea to start using it. Generally speaking, taking the proper preventative steps in your skin care routine in your 20s can help to prevent and reduce skin concerns that will appear as you age. Not to mention, eye cream can help tackle common concerns amongst all ages like dark circles and under-eye bags.
IS IT OKAY TO USE ANTI-AGING PRODUCTS IN YOUR 20S?
Typically, people in their 20s don’t need to use anti-aging products. In fact, most anti-aging products are formulated with mature skin in mind, which tends to be drier due to decreased oil production, and they can be quite heavy on those with youthful skin. That said, everyone is different and has different skin concerns. Pay attention to your skin!
While you may not need anti-aging formulas, there are anti-aging techniques you can add to your skin care routine in your 20s, including applying SPF daily to avoid sun damage. There may also be products with anti-aging benefits that are meant for all ages or even younger skin specifically.
