Anti-aging and skin care

Astaxanthin is commonly used in supplements, but it can also be used for various cosmetic products, especially those that provide anti-aging effects. Astaxanthin helps neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from harmful solar radiation and environmental pollution. In addition, it helps reduce inflammation and improve the elasticity and texture of the skin. Astaxanthin is especially known for its ability to reduce the signs of skin aging, including the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles.

When is the right time to start anti-aging skin care?

The correct age to start using anti-aging facial care products can vary depending on several factors, including genetics, lifestyle, skin type, and individual skin care preferences. However, it can be said that the use of anti-aging facial care products can be considered from early adulthood, when the skin is just beginning to show signs of aging, and the introduction of preventive measures can help maintain the health and youthfulness of the skin in the long term. The exact age is different for each person, but some recommendations depending on age are as follows:

In your 20s: Many experts recommend starting to use anti-aging facial care products as early as the 20s. Although the signs of skin aging are not yet strongly expressed at this age, this is a good time to start taking care of the skin more consciously and take preventive measures. For example, you can start with the use of a light moisturizing cream or day cream that contains antioxidants and SPF for sun protection.

In your 30s: In the thirties, the signs of skin aging can already become more noticeable, including finer wrinkles, dryness and unevenness of the skin. At this age, you may consider adding retinol-containing products such as a night cream or serum to your skincare routine to stimulate collagen production and reduce the signs of aging.

In the 40s and onwards: In the forties and later, skin aging can become even more noticeable, as the skin gradually loses elasticity and hydration, and deeper wrinkles penetrate to the fore. At this age, the use of more intense anti-aging products, such as anti-wrinkle serums or face creams, which contain higher concentrations of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and other skin rejuvenating ingredients, can be considered.

Antioxidants are crucial to combat oxidative stress and maintain cell health, with Astaxanthin standing out as the most potent natural antioxidant.
