What helps against forehead wrinkles, what generally against wrinkled expression lines? What is this thread lift that everyone is talking about right now? Can you even prevent wrinkles? Question after question. Dermatologist Dr. Hans-Ulrich Voigt from the Kosmed Institute in Munich answers which anti-aging method helps from which age.
What anti-aging care do I need from 20?
You don't need designated anti-wrinkle products at this young age. On the contrary, anti-aging ingredients such as retinol or AHA acid can even make the skin sensitive. Instead, you should now prevent skin aging. "Care at this age should focus on maintaining youthfulness and preventing oxidative damage, especially from sunlight. This is best done by using a higher sun protection factor (over 20), by avoiding solariums and smoking," explains dermatologist Dr . med. Hans-Ulrich Voigt. Instead, you should focus on a healthy diet, plenty of oxygen, and exercise. Also: Always supply the skin with plenty of moisture. The best active ingredient for the twenties: hyaluronic acid. It provides the skin with an incredible amount of moisture and that protects against wrinkles. It is best to start now with moisturizing eye creams.

Genetic aging begins in the twenties.

The cleaning should be done with washing creams and cleansing milk. " Special anti-aging serums provide these powerful ingredients. Dr. Voigt observes that women of this age want more and more professional treatments from beauticians or dermatologists: Botox, fillers,

From the age of 50, it can be observed: "The wrinkles become more and deeper wrinkles are added. Due to decreasing elasticity and permanent pull of gravity, the soft parts of the cheeks begin to sink and the nasolabial and marionette folds deepen and make the tear duct appear clearer."

The new oils make the dry skin appear plumper again. But hyaluronic acid concentrates are also increasingly being used.
