Chances are the wardrobe choices you make in your twenties aren’t what you’ll be reaching for in your forties and the hairstyle you have now will probably not work out the same way for you in your sixties. The same can almost be said of your skin.
The only major difference being that there are some issues that your skin has to deal with at every age like UV rays and pollution for example. This is why it’s essential that you have the right skincare at every age and stage you’re in. Meaning that you won’t be putting a product that’s not meant for you or that won’t work on your skin. Keep note of the top ingredients needed for your skin to thrive at every age- find your age range and what to focus on to get the best results for your skincare routine.
Start a routine, focused on cleansing, exfoliating, toning and moisturizing using gentle ingredients. This is the time to test out what works best for your skin type. Visit a dermatologist to learn more about your skin type, and get the products that compliment your skin to treat any ailments like blemishes, acne scars and to prevent premature ageing. Yes, it is time to start taking your skin seriously; the earlier you are at establishing the right routine for your skin type, the better off you will be preventing deep lines in the future. The focus should be on SPF every day (even if you can’t see the sun) it will pay off when you reach your 40’s. Moreover, the best products to use in your 20’s are those that contain salicylic acid like the Rhea Beauty, Glow Facial Cleanser which helps minimize breakouts through this hero ingredient and which works to clear acne with repeated use.
Now is the time to hone in on your skincare knowledge- you should know by now what your skin reacts well to and how to give it the right treatment for your future face. Continue the routine you established in your 20’s, then add a stronger ingredient to the mix, since your collagen production starts to reduce. Taking the non-invasive route is always recommended at first so no need to rush off to get injections just yet. Simply begin to add retinol and hyaluronic acid to your routine, ideal for firming the skin and stimulating collagen production without irritation. It is recommended that these ingredients are used topically. Apply the Orange Daily, Anti-Ageing Tri-Retinol Complex, followed by the Essentials, Hydrating Facial Mist which contains hyaluronic acid and panthenol to lock in skin’s moisture.
In order to protect your skin from the environment, lack of sleep, stress or whatever may pop up in your life to get your skin to lose its lustre, you need to start adding superhero antioxidants. The particularly potent vitamin C, is especially helpful to brighten your skin as well. Kolagra, Skin Serum has 10% vitamin C and can be used three nights a week to get full advantage of this power-packed and affordable serum.
As you age, your skin’s natural oil production begins to decrease, which can make your skin feel dry. You should avoid harsh cleansers and exfoliate gently. The older you get, the less efficient your skin can shed and renew its cells, which is why we recommend using products with glycolic acid and lactic acid. Start off with the Essentials, Deep Cleansing Foam to get rid of dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of pores. You should also incorporate antioxidants and vitamins to fight free radicals and collagen boosters and to help plump up your skin. For this, try using a night serum, such as the Neuth France, Gold Anti-Wrinkle Cream.
