How young is too young for anti-aging products?


I've been looking at this serum for a while, and heard raves about this product, but have actually never tried it myself...at $98 per bottle, I don't think I can afford to use this!

But I'm wondering if it's worth the hefty price...has anyone tried this product before?

Also, I've heard stories of how using anti-aging products when under a certain age does more damage to the skin in the future...is this true?

Start before you have wrinkles

From what I have heard, you should start early (like maybe when you have reached adulthood) so you can prevent wrinkles!
Also, the Lancome deal that's going on right now includes a sample of the Genifique serum so try to find samples to try before buying a bottle for $98.

start early

I agree with Tammy, it's MUCH easier to prevent than to treat wrinkles after you have them.

We've all heard it a zillion times but it's true that the best prevention is daily sunscreen. You can also help prevent just by taking good care of your skin --cleanse, tone and moisturize 2x daily, sunscreen daily, and stay hydrated.

I'm not really sure what this Lancome product is all about, but if it's specifically targeted to combat the signs of aging, it likely won't do anything for you and you'll spend $98 to look the same. However, if it's a product for moisturizing or clarifying, then you might notice results.

I recently started using natural Grapeseed Oil with my moisturizer and I've found that it makes my skin super soft and glowy.

Prevention is Key

I agree with the ladies above... do what you can to prevent wrinkles now, but like what Cathy said, I don't think its necessary to purchase something so pricey if a drugstore product is going to give you the same results at this age. I think right now, our goal is to keep the elasticity in our skin by keeping our skin well hydrated, drinking water, proper intake of vitamin A and E, and proper makeup application.

Youth never gets old! (pun intended! :D)

Reviews for Lancome Genifique

Hello Beauties, you can see the reviews we have for Genifique products here:

As for what age to start with anti-aging? Typically they say 25 is a good starting point - though I don't think I had any wrinkles whatsoever at that age. Your skin starts to lose elasticity and that's when you start to see the effects of gravity/mother nature.

Before then the best anti-aging remedy is reducing prolonged exposure to the sun without sunscreen, getting lots of sleep and drinking lots of water. Practices that will keep you looking young well past 25.

Once you get into your late 20s early 30s you also need the help of products designed to combat the signs of aging since we can't avoid it and you will notice a difference between using them and not using them.

bang for the buck?

I love all the advise here!! Which companies can you ladies recommend for anti aging products? Basically every brand I can think of has their own anti aging tricks. Which actually work and which are gimmicks?

I was told by Shoppers cosmeticians that brans like Olay, L'Oreal, etc. are "the same man wearing a different coat". That they are all useless and just mostly water. They recommend Neostrata. I've bought Neostrata and tried it and it doesn't suit me. I also don't buy into "same man different coat" concept. These companies spend a ton of $$ researching and marketing their product. It can't all just be garbage.

From what I've read on the net and above in this thread, the three things to prevent the look of anti aging is:
UVA/UVB protection
Good eye cream

Am I missing anything?

The best eye cream I've ever tried is the Clinique all about eyes. I never realized what an awesome job it did until I tried the L'Oreal Youth Code eye cream and messed up the look of my eyes. And then used Clinique to make them normal again.

What Moisturizer would you ladies recommend? And how much sun protection is a good amount to use on a daily basis?

I recommend

R&F;Dermatologists Anti-Aging Regimen and Amp MD. People are starting as young as 20 years old using the roller and night serum. It causes your skin to build collagen and is loaded with PEPTIDEs which your sking thrives on. Would love to tell you more! I love the pproducts. Yummy!

Oh so 20 years old is alright too?
I always thought that something in those products would speed up my aging process. Maybe I will try! thanks!

I need to start!

I'm in my 20s and after reading all these comments I really want to start an anti-aging regime. I never know what a good eye cream is. I tried using the Clinique all about eyes too but I didn't notice any difference. How do I know if a good eye cream is working?

@tammyk I use the same one and I have the same question! Nothings different, so how do I know its working?

Lancome junkie

I've been using Lancome for a few years and I'm really happy with my skin. The sales associates have always been really knowledgeable and helpful in directing you to the right line based on your age and skin type. (And if you buy during one of their bonuses you get great little samples to try out!)
