How old should I be to start taking care of my skin so I don't get wrinkles?

Answer by:
Debra Jaliman, MD


You're never too young to start looking after your skin. Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. Make certain it's at least an SPF 30, and look for one with zinc or titanium dioxide. You can also look for an over-the-counter retinol product to reverse sun damage, and use it every night. You can start using retinol in your 20s. The eyelid skin is the thinnest skin in the body and doesn't have much oil, so it's always good to use an eye cream. Look for one with hyaluronic acid. This ingredient binds water to the skin and is very hydrating.
