I don't know from your question how old you are but you are never too young to use sunscreen and using this "age protect" product can't hurt. I don't know if your question is regarding using sunscreen in general or switching to a sunscreen that is marketed to help protect your age. Personally, I figure that any sunscreen that is 30+ and blocks UVA and UVB rays is an "age protection" product because those rays are what damage your skin and help to age it. I see that you live in California so I would not consider sunscreen as optional for you. If you don't already, use a sunscreen daily! If you only do one thing to your face in the morning to get ready, it should be to put on sunscreen. I work in surgery in Illinois and I can't tell you the number of skin cancer cases I have seen. Anyone reading this that doesn't use sunscreen daily, do yourself a favor by starting to use sunscreen now and never stop. That said, there are several good ones to choose from. I personally use this StriVectin-SH™ Age Protect SPF 30/PA+++ daily and love it. I also use Sheisedo's Ultimate Sun Protection Cream For Face SPF 55 PA+++ for when I need even more protection (like going to the beach on vacation.) Since you live in California, you may want to use the Sheisedo 55+ SPF for daily use. Sheisedo has a 1.2 oz tube for $19.50 and a 2 oz tube for $35, compared to Strivectin's $49 for a 2 oz. I had stocked up on the Strivectin when I first found it and didn't try the Sheisedo until later. I only have one of the little bottles of Sheisedo 55+ so that's why I save it for sunnier times. Since I like both, I may switch to the Sheisedo for daily use when I run out of the Strivectin, since it is cheaper.
