In your 20s

The Kit - - THEKIT.CA -

What you’re notic­ing: You may not be able to see wrin­kles or bags yet, but tak­ing early ac­tion can make a sig­nif­i­cant impact down the road. “It’s help­ful to hy­drate the skin in that area and to use in­gre­di­ents that are go­ing to pre­vent signs of ag­ing,” says En­gel­man. Be­neath the sur­face, your skin’s cell-re­newal process is slow­ing, dulling your nat­u­ral glow, and pro­duc­ing fewer free-rad­i­cal-fight­ing an­tiox­i­dants. “An­tiox­i­dants are very im­por­tant for pro­tec­tion against UV dam­age,” says Neuser. “To re­al­ize that [slow­ing down] is al­ready hap­pen­ing in the 20s is quite eye-open­ing.” What to look for: Bright­en­ing, an­tiox­i­dant-packed Vi­ta­min C. “That’s def­i­nitely go­ing to help to im­prove the ap­pear­ance of dark­en­ing un­der the eyes,” says En­gel­man. Look for pep­tides that keep youth­ful skin plump and line­less. “They boost col­la­gen and elastin pro­duc­tion and firm,” says Neuser. If you’re oily and break­out-prone, stick to a gel or serum for­mula in­stead of a thick cream that may clog your pores. The Kit picks: MAR­CELLE HY­DRA- C EYE CON­TOUR GEL- CREAM, $25, MAR­CELLE.COM. TATA HARPER IL­LU­MI­NAT­ING EYE CRÈME, $127, SEPHORA.CA
