Third of people didn’t start using moisturiser until they were 45
This may come as a surprise to you but a third of people who use moisturiser did not start doing so until they were 45 or older, discovered a survey by McCabes Pharmacy.
Despite recommendations within the beauty industry of the skin benefits of using a moisturiser regularly from the age of 21, only 12.4% of those surveyed said they began using face cream between the ages of 45 and 54.
A further fifth (19.4%) only made face cream a regular in their beauty regime after they became 55, found the report.
This comes at a time when top facialists have been debating whether it’s time for clients to ditch their moisturiser and opt for corrective and preventative serums instead.
Despite these stats, almost half of those surveyed started a skincare regime before the age of 35, with around 25% beginning by the age of 24.
This data was formed from a survey of 1,000 people aged between 18 to 65 plus in the Republic of Ireland, asking “What age did you start using anti-ageing products?”.
