Skin Care at Every Age

As each of us gets older, our lifestyles habits change and our skin needs extra attention. Developing a healthy skin care regimen is important so you can keep your radiant skin and look your best every day. Since your skin’s features and characteristics change over time, you can start planning ahead for the future and take care of your face to fight back against the root causes of acne.
Differences between Your 20s and 30s
When you are in your 20s, your skin is undoubtedly unpredictable. You may notice dry, flaky skin, and acne that is related to varying hormone levels. This is the perfect time to develop life-long healthy skin care habits, such as applying sunscreen daily and removing makeup before going to sleep. In your 30s, collagen and elastic fibers in your face begin to break down, causing wrinkles and fine lines. Regular exfoliation of your skin should be a priority.

Your Skin at 40 and 50
After you turn 40 years old, it is important to continue using a gentle cleanser in the morning and night to keep your skin clean. Natural changes in hormones can cause dark spots and make your skin look uneven. This is a good time to talk with a skin care professional about a prescription retinoid, and other products you can use to repair and protect your skin. You may notice that your skin appears to sag and thin when you are in your 50s. If you notice dryness from your retinoid, mix in moisturizer or night cream three times each week, to help restore your skin.
