Although the internet would have you believe that millennials are only obsessed with buying plants and artisan coffees, we are (mostly) all grown up. It’ll come as no surprise, then, that when it comes to the beauty products we’re regularly purchasing, millennials are certainly “maturing.” Plenty of trend reports say we’re much more focused on skincare than makeup, opting to invest in products that aim to enhance what’s underneath. (Though, I certainly still enjoy both.) Between lengthy Korean skincare routines and new fancy gadgets, the fashion girls I spoke to are certainly upping their skincare game of late.
Yet anti-ageing is still something many are unsure about. When exactly should we start an anti-ageing routine? Most importantly, do these products even work? Skin experts are certainly not united on all of these concerns, yet the majority of dermatologists I’ve spoken to have all suggested that “prevention is better than cure.” I’m also of the mindset that care is better than cure. You’re not necessarily “anti-ageing.” Rather, you’re embracing ageing—just at the speed you prefer.
