Some Gen-Zs’ are concerned about aging, that they’re attempting to do everything they can to avoid looking older than millennials
Gen-Z ranges from ages 11 to 26 and some have expressed online they’ve purchased anti-aging products to slow down the appearance of looking older.
A user on TikTok said, “I don’t want to look old, I do my skincare girl, I’m not trying to look old.”
“In all seriousness if you see what Gen Z has lived through, like I’m an older Gen Z, if you’ve looked at what they’ve literally lived through they probably stressed out as fudge!” she continued.
“Prevention, rather than correction, has become the status quo; they’re opting for makeup products with anti-aging benefits like fine-line reduction and SPF protection,” according to a CNN article.
70 percent use anti-aging serums daily, according to intelligence firm Circana.
Another TikTok user is defending Gen-Z’s that use anti-aging products and thinks if that’s what they want to do then there shouldn’t be a problem.
“Our weird obsession with anti-aging should not be their problem,” she said.
Additionally, she expressed that people should leave them alone and focus on other things instead of making them feel self-conscious of how they look because of social media’s influence.
“I know I’m the anti-aging girly, but like we have to stop talking about how old they look,” she added.
According to the Global Cosmetic Industry, the U.S. Census Bureau reports that by 2025, 22% of the population will be 18 years old or less, and they have already purchased beauty products: 69% use color cosmetics and 68% have a skin care regimen.
