Your 20s are the best time to prevent—and fight!—wrinkles, pigmentation, sagging skin, and more unfortunate signs that you’re growing up (and older).

So in the slideshow ahead, we’ve created a full A-to-Z guide of the antiaging options available to you right now. There are thrifty, natural ways to hydrate your skin, intense treatments that your dermatologist will have to prescribe or perform, and more ways to halt Mother Nature—at least for a little while.

If you're looking for all-natural hydration that won't cause a breakout, this is it. "Jojoba oil is exceptionally effective because it has a molecular similarity to the building block oils of the skin," explains a spokesperson at beauty brand Ogee.
