Is worrying about anti-aging early harmful?

Hi so I love taking care of my skin because I want to look fabulous when im a granny.

I am only 23 but I am interested in mantaining my skin with liquid collagen ( like the algenist one) and perhaps some minimum strength retinol. I already use hyaloronic acid serum and vitamin c serum . Will the retinol be something harmful to use from an early age. Would it descrease its effect later on in my skins life?

@Beautyfama At your age, just wear sunscreen and make sure you exfoliate and moisturize! You don’t need anything like a retinol yet, unless you have damage from sun or acne scaring. Josie Maran’s like is perfect for your age, I started using it around 23 as well and it’s still a integral part of my routine.

My best recommendation is for you to start using sunscreen diligently regardless of weather. I use a minimum spf 30 or 50 under my makeup. Hydration is also key

No, it's great that you're paying attention to skincare so soon! A lot of people wait and then end up trying to catch up or undo damage... you'll be able to mostly focus on preventive maintenance. 2 main things to watch are: 1) skin tends to become more dry over time, so some anti-aging formulas can cause breakouts or congestion in people with oily/combo skin... and 2) ingredients like retinol and AHAs/various acids make you more photosensitive, so it's extra important to wear a sunscreen every day. So be prepared to test a few products to see what works for you, and try to have some fun with the whole process!
