6. you delay your anti-aging program.

Prevention is always better than cure. We know this. So start using eye cream when you’re 18, serums when you’re 25, and anti-aging ingredients like retinol when you’re 30 and already very active. By treating your skin well from the start, you can effectively slow down the signs of aging before they even appear, and you’ll maintain smooth, younger-looking skin for much longer.

5. you use certain products at the wrong time

We pat ourselves on the back for all those who add exceptional anti-aging ingredients to their skincare routine, but which times you use them matters a lot. Antioxidants like vitamin C should be used in the morning to combat UV radiation and free radical damage during the day, while collagen-boosting ingredients (like retinoids and peptides) and chemical exfoliants like alpha and beta hydroxy acids should be used at night when your skin is in repair mode.
