It’s never too early to take preventative action, especially when it comes to skincare. While slathering on sunscreen is certainly a step in the right direction, sometimes the premature damage we see on our skin, such as fine lines, hyperpigmentation, etc., requires a more vigorous, reactive approach. It can be tricky to know where to start, especially if you’re still in your 20s and trying to deal with other annoying existing issues like the occasional bout of acne. To ease the stress of searching for the right anti-aging elixir (and to save you hours of googling the scientifically backed benefits of vitamin C versus hyaluronic acid), we rounded up the 16 products that are currently residing on our own vanities. Shop them now and thank us later.
