Starting children on skincare at a young age will ensure a future society of skin care wise people. Many of us do not follow our skincare routine as we should because we were never educated on how important it is. Plastic surgery and other invasive techniques are used at a more mature age because we want to turn back the ageing clock. Little do we know! If only we started caring for our skins at an early age, we could have slowed down the ageing process tremendously. Protecting your skin against the sun is a very important part of this. When should a child start using skincare? From the age of 10 years old is a good age to start. You do not want to use highly active ingredients at a young age, but the basics of skincare need to be introduced. Protected skin is healthy skin!
