Skin Care Through the Years

14/09/2015 08:53

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.

Skincare in your 20s: 

If you haven’t already started a beauty regime, 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 regime 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 socialising, 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 regime to include more moisturising 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 routine 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.

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 realise 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 moisturising! 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!

Dry, chapped lips are something we all experience at one time or another. Our lips are sensitive and need to be protected. Elements like the sun, the wind, dry and cold weather conditions can really affect our lips. It’s time to take charge and say goodbye to chapped lips! 

The cold winter weather can wreak havoc on our skin and especially our lips. So here are my top five tips to keep your lips in their most kissable condition and ready for party season! 

How to protect yourself from chapped lips 

Chapped lip tip 1: Protection is key 
Our lips have a very thin outer layer of skin and they contain little melanin, which is necessary for protection against the sun’s rays. Always protect your lips from the sun by applying a lip product with SPF UVA/UVB protection. I keep one in my bag, one in my car, one at my desk … always within reach. Our lips are so vulnerable; we must remember to keep them protected. 


Chapped lip tip 2: Stay hydrated 
I drink a lot of green tea and water throughout the day because chapped lips are an indicator that your body is dehydrated and needs water. So fill your glass full and drink up! 


Chapped lip tip 3: Don’t lick your lips 
Our lips lack in both sweat and oil glands making them susceptible to dehydration. 


We tend to lick our lips as they begin to dry out. And while this may provide temporary relief, the reality is it can worsen the condition. As our saliva quickly evaporates, our lips are left even drier than before. It’s a vicious cycle that we have to break. Try to resist the temptation and keep reapplying your lip product instead of licking your lips throughout the day. 

Chapped lip tip 4: Take your vitamins 
Believe it or not, vitamin deficiencies can affect our entire body both inside and out. And, these deficiencies can lead to chapped lips. Be sure to eat a varied, healthy diet and consider taking a daily multivitamin that includes vitamins B, C and E to nurture your lips from the inside out. 

Chapped lip tip 5: Eat healthy 
A healthy diet that includes essential fatty acids is also important when it comes to our lips. If we are deficient in essential fatty acids the chances are that our lips will be affected. Some healthy food choices include fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, whole grains and olive oil. And I choose to take an Omega 3 supplement because Omega 3’s are amazing for our skin and lips. 


Follow these simple tips and you too can avoid dry, chapped lips and instead enjoy healthy, happy, kissable lips.
