Skin Care Products and How to Use them for Every Age
Your skin may stay with you your entire life, but you shouldn’t take care of it the same way you did when you were 20 when you are 60. Your skin changes, just like you do. And as it changes, it needs different things. By adapting your skincare routine with your age, you can ensure that your skin is getting what it needs to be healthy and look great.
Talk to a skincare professional in Phoenix to determine the specific needs of your skin. Here are some guidelines for what most people need to do for skincare by age:
In your 20’s, your skin is still buoyant and firm. It is rich in collagen, and it can rebound quickly even with poor habits like falling asleep with your makeup on. The best thing you can do for your skin at this age is to wash it every day and use a good moisturizer. You don’t need a heavy night cream or special products. Just cleanse thoroughly and moisturize.
Your first eye wrinkles are likely to appear in your late 20’s, so you should also plan to start using an eye cream after 25. Use it every day to keep your eyes moisturized and keep the wrinkles at bay.
Collagen production starts to decline in your 30’s, and skin renewal happens more slowly. The result is that your skin looks a bit duller and a bit looser. You’ll notice that your pores don’t look as tight, and wrinkles may start to form. You’ll see them mostly around your eyes and mouth.
You should be focusing on good moisturizing during this time. Use a good moisturizer every day, and drink plenty of water. Continue to use your eye cream, as well. Start paying attention to your neck during this time also. Your neck ages even faster than your face, and it needs the same care you give the skin on your face.
In your 40’s, your skin is starting to become thinner and it is losing elasticity. Wrinkles are going to be more visible around your eyes, at the corners of your mouth, and on your throat. Your skincare routine will need to include anti-aging products, including a serum, a day cream, and a night cream. Of course, you’ll need to continue using your eye cream also, though you may need one with more anti-aging ingredients, such as glycolic acid.
You will also need to apply sunblock every day. Your skin is more susceptible to sun damage, and without sun protection, you may see an increase in age spots and wrinkles.
Many women go through menopause in their 50’s, and that brings a lot of changes for the skin. The skin becomes even thinner and less elastic. Cell renewal slows down, and collagen production slows, which means that the skin is drier, looser, and more prone to wrinkling.
Choose anti-aging products that nourish the skin and encourage collagen production and skin renewal. Use an anti-wrinkle cream like those of skinmedica to soften the wrinkles that you already have and tighten the skin. You may also consider seeing a dermatologist to get a prescription for retinol to encourage cell renewal.
In addition to the skincare you perform every day, you can also see a skin care specialist to get different treatments, such as different facials, peels, light therapy, and more. These professional services can help you get results faster by stimulating collagen production and cellular renewal. Some services can also lighten pigmentation brought on by sun damage, even out your complexion, and tighten your skin.
