People commonly refer to the 21st century as the 'Century of Centenarians.' In an age where everyone has a high probability of living longer, aging gracefully with beautiful skin has become a lifelong challenge for modern individuals. As people age, their skin gradually becomes thinner and loses elasticity. Additionally, decreased sebum production can lead to dryness and a loss of radiance. Wrinkles are said to start forming at the age of 20, and the aging process begins around the age of 26.
The global anti-aging market is of significant size, estimated to reach $63.01 billion in 2022 and projected to grow to $106.65 billion by 2030. According to a survey conducted by TBC (The Benchmarking Company), a US beauty consumer research organization, in February, targeting 3,157 women aged 18 and older, it was revealed that the age group of women who pay attention to anti-aging has extended to Generation Z, those aged 18 to 26. Among Generation Z respondents who are currently purchasing anti-aging products, 58% mentioned that they began worrying about aging at around the age of 23. Aging and anti-aging, which were once considered concerns of the middle-aged and older generations, have now piqued the interest of Generation Z, leading to a phenomenon known as 'Generation-less' in terms of skincare aging.
It's already well-known that Korean cosmetics excel in anti-aging efficacy. Organic products with good ingredients that are gentle on the skin are effective in preventing skin aging. In Korea, the category that Korean women are most concerned about in terms of aging is 'aging,' and both Korean cosmetics and skin procedures have made significant progress in preventing aging. Let's find out what skincare products Koreans use to prevent skin aging.
