Skin Care Through the Years

9/14/2015 12:53 AM

Our skin changes as the years go by - and so should our skin care routine.  Here is some advice to help you look your best at every age.

Skin care in your 20s

If you haven't already started a beauty regimen, now's the time. It's important to develop good skin care habits early on because they will help you look your best for years to come.
Choose products that suit your skin type. It's important to cleanse, tone, moisturize and protect your skin with SPF every day. If your skin is prone to blemishes or if the size of your pores is a concern, be sure to use a mask. No matter how tired you are, it's important for both men and women to cleanse their skin before bedtime. 

Skin care in your 30s

This is when you may start noticing the first signs of aging. Your skin starts to lose collagen and elastin and a few fine lines might appear. You may need to change your regimen to include more moisturizing products, including a revitalizing night cream that will provide hydration while you sleep. And if you haven't explored a good line-minimizing serum, you should. Anti-aging products help with correction and prevention and now is the time to take those preventative measures.

It's common to start seeing signs of aging around your eyes, too. This is the decade when you should consider adding an extra step in your regimen to focus specifically on the skin around your eyes. An eye gel is perfect for daytime use and will help firm the skin around the eyes. And, a richer, hydrating eye cream will be perfect for nighttime use.

Skin care in your 40s

In your 40s, uneven skin tone is one of the most common complaints women have. This can be caused by too many hours in the sun resulting in age spots. It can also be a throwback to pregnancy. Other hormonal changes during this decade and the possible onset of menopause for women could leave you wondering where your youthful skin went.

If you aren't already exfoliating on a weekly basis, get started.  Proper exfoliation helps to remove the dead and dying skin cells from the surface, revealing newer skin cells beneath. Our natural exfoliation does slow down as we age and men and women alike can benefit from a good scrubbing.

If wrinkles are a concern, be sure to introduce a line- minimizing serum. If the firmness of your skin is not what it used to be, grab a purifying mint clay mask. Small changes add up so just a few tweaks can help you regain control of your skin.

Skin care in your 50s - and beyond

A crucial element to skin care as you age is moisturizing. By the time you hit your 50s, your skin is losing its elasticity and you may start to see sagging. Though you can't turn back the clock, you can keep your skin (and yourself) hydrated. So, drink lots of water to keep hydrated inside and out. And stay on top of your skin care regimen. Make sure that you are focusing on your entire body, especially your neck and throat and backs of your hands. Daytime and nighttime moisturizers are non-negotiable in your 50s and a good line-minimizing serum should be your best friend. Eye protection  is essential and a good night's sleep can definitely give you a freshened appearance. Your daily skin care regimen should never be compromised and should be a priority if you want to look your best.

We can't stop aging, but we can age gracefully and beautifully. Getting started on a healthy skin care regimen in your early years is the best way to ensure a lifetime of fabulous skin. Once you have identified a new concern for yourself, as they are different for everyone, seek out the right product to help. Remember,a proper skin care regimen coupled with good nutrition and a healthy active lifestyle is the real fountain of youth. If you look good on the outside and feel good on the inside, that confidence will show in your appearance - no matter what your age.

Skin changes as the years go by – and your skin care routine should change with it! Here are my quick tips to help you look your best at every age.

Let’s face the music: aging is inevitable! No matter how much we try to convince ourselves otherwise, the clock is going to keep on ticking and our skin is going to age. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing – and you can practice healthy skin care habits that will keep you looking your best no matter what your age.

We all know that our skin changes as we age, but what’s exactly happening? The skin is a remarkable organ; its ability to regenerate itself really is a wonder. New cells are constantly forming, but cells regenerate at a slower pace as we get older. Because of this, you may notice your skin texture changing over the decades. Skin becomes thinner as the years go by, and you may see more age spots. These are actually areas of hyperpigmentation caused by UV rays – another reason why it’s so critical to wear sunscreen at every age!

Our skin also loses some of its natural elasticity as the years go by, leading to sagging and wrinkles. Compounding the problem is the loss of lipids (fatty acids) over time, which are responsible for keeping skin moisturized – meaning your moisture needs will change over time.

We have to face it: our skin care needs are going to change as we age. What worked for you in your 20s is probably not going to be as effective after a decade or two! On the other hand, we’re so inundated with “anti-aging” products that it’s easy to get ahead of ourselves when it comes to developing an effective skin care routine. Whether you’re 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, or beyond, it’s important to choose a regime and products that are appropriate for your age and skin type. Here’s some of my favorite beauty advice for beautiful skin at every age:

Skincare in your 20s:

If you haven’t already started a beauty regimen, now’s the time! It’s important to get into a habit of developing a good skin care routine early on because it will help you look your best for years.

You may be seeing changes to your skin since you’re coming out of your teenage years and your hormones may be changing. Your skin will continue to adjust throughout your 20s, so take some time to figure out what your skin type is and choose your beauty regimen accordingly.

Some simple lifestyle changes can help, too. Late nights out and too much time in the sun can affect the appearance of your skin. Start wearing sunscreen daily if you don’t already do so, because this will help your skin remain elastic and supple. And while it’s tempting to stay out late socializing, try to limit your late nights so you can look your best during the day.

Skincare in your 30s:

This is when you may start noticing the signs of aging. Your skin starts to lose collagen and elastin and a few fine lines might make their debut on your face. You may need to change your beauty regimen to include more moisturizing products.

It’s common to start seeing signs of aging around your eyes, too. This is the decade when you should consider adding an extra step in your beauty regimen to focus specifically on the skin around your eyes.

Want a quick tip to avoid encroaching laughter lines? Wear big sunglasses! The bigger, the better in my book.  If you choose shades with UVA and UVB protection then you’ll be keeping more of your face covered and protected from the sun. And, the best thing about shades is that they reduce the likelihood of squinting.  Squinting is not a good look, so throw on some shades when you’re outdoors or driving and you could delay eye wrinkles. (By the way, isn’t ‘laughter lines’ a much nicer phrase than ‘crow’s feet’?)

Skincare in your 40s:

In your 40s, uneven skin tone is one of the most common complaints women have. This can be caused by too many hours in the sun with resulting age spots (so keep up your sunscreen routine!). It can also be a throwback to pregnancy which leaves some women with melisma (also known as the mask of pregnancy).

Other hormonal changes during this decade and the possible onset of menopause could leave you wondering where your youthful skin went. At this time, it’s best to visit your dermatologist for suggestions and possible treatments for your changing skin that will help you look and feel your best.

Many women in their forties feel confident that they have their skincare regime nailed down so it’s a pain to realize that you may have to adapt and evolve. Happily enough, small changes do add up so you may need only a few tweaks to regain control of your skin.

Skincare in your 50s – and beyond:

A crucial element to skincare as you age is moisturizing! By the time you hit your 50s, skin is losing its elasticity and you may start to see sagging. Though you can’t turn back the clock, you can keep your skin (and yourself) hydrated!

It’s also worth reviewing your cosmetics. If you’ve been wearing the same makeup look for a few decades, then it’s probably time to freshen up your style.  Many women complain that their eyes appear smaller, so think carefully about your eye make up.  While mascara is a brilliant tool, you may want to switch from a hard black to a softer brown and work to emphasis your eyes in a more nuanced manner. Don’t forget my love of eyelash curlers too – they can turn a beauty bad day around!

***

We can’t stop aging, but we can age gracefully and beautifully. If the fountain of youth existed, it would probably have something to do with attitude. If you feel beautiful, that confidence will show in your appearance – no matter what your age!
