Skincare is incredibly important, no matter what your age. Developing a great skincare routine early on will set you up for success as the years start to tick by. Each generation needs different products according to their skin’s need, but far too often we see clients using the same products they did when they were teenagers. Below we’ve listed everything you need to know to keep your skin healthy and fresh at any age!
For your Twenties
What you should focus on: In your twenties, you should spend time developing a skincare routine that will keep you hydrated and protect you from skin damage. Try to increase your water intake. Water is the body’s best detoxifier and getting into a habit of drinking plenty of it will mean your skin will look healthy and fresh no matter your age. Also, you’ll want to invest in sunscreen for your face. This habit is one you want to start now to protect you from premature wrinkles and sunspots.
What you should avoid: The worst thing you can do in your twenties is making a habit of sleeping in your makeup. Most twenty-year-olds are in school or working their first career job and regardless of how late or tired, a good cleansing habit will keep your skin free from bacteria. Fortunately, in your twenties, your skin is still producing higher levels of collagen which means you don’t need to focus too heavily on anti-aging creams. Just keep the skin hydrated with plenty of water and moisturizer.
For Your Thirties
What you should focus on: trying to reduce anxiety and stress because they wreak havoc on the skin. A lot of women in their thirties are accelerating their careers, getting married, or having kids. All of which can prove to be very stressful. Choose anti-aging products with multiple ingredients like antioxidants and retinoid to help with cell development. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and gives skin plumpness. When shopping for facial products, make sure it’s listed in the ingredients as well.
What you should avoid: If possible try to allow yourself as much time for sleep. It will not only keep your skin looking fresh but keep the dark circles at bay. You can also start using AHA products that have natural acids in them to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and increase cell production. It’s a form of exfoliation, and it does fantastic things for your skin. It also makes it easier for your skin to absorb all the amazing anti-aging products by dissolving the dead skin that is sitting on your face.
For Your Forties
What you should focus on: Your collagen levels fluctuate a lot in your forties which means you should invest in a perfect retinoid cream to combat any fine lines or wrinkles. You’ll also want to focus on heavier moisturizers. For most people, our skin dries as we age and becomes sensitive. These issues can lead to red, inflamed skin and a deep, heavy facial cream locks in moisture. Look for one that has ceramides or fatty acids in the ingredients.
What you should avoid: If your skin has become super dry, you can skip the morning face wash if it was a part of your routine. Dry skin looks dull and clogs pores. Additionally, it enhances the appearance of wrinkles which is not something we want. You’ll also want to stop ignoring problem areas. If sunspots or deep wrinkles just don’t dissipate no matter what you do, there are skin laser treatments and injectables that can remove age spots and plump out skin.
