Many people stick with the same skincare routine for years or even decades with no problems, only to wake up one day and find that their skin is suddenly much drier or less smooth and supple than what seems normal. If you have started to notice subtle (or not so subtle) changes in your skin’s texture and how it responds to certain products or environmental factors, you are not alone. The aging process and the fluctuations in hormone levels that come with it ultimately show up on your face and skin.
Making the Most of Skincare in Your 20s, 30, 40s and Beyond
The key to healthy and radiant skin at every age is to give it what it needs in the moment. Even if your current routine is still working fine, the effects of earlier damage throughout the years (like overexposure to the sun or smoking) can begin to show up on your skin in later decades. The best skincare routines involve both prevention and damage control.
Tips for Beautiful Skin at Every Age
Here are a few tips and tricks to maintain a healthy complexion:
Be sure to drink enough water at every age, but especially as you get older, when natural collagen and oil production declines and skin tends to become thinner, drier and more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Change your moisturizer accordingly as your skin’s texture and hydration needs begin to evolve and change.
Even if you baked your skin at the beach or in a tanning bed in your 20s, protecting your skin from harmful UV light and rays should be a lifelong commitment. In addition to using sunscreen and protective clothing, schedule routine skin cancer screenings to catch any problems before they can advance.
Use the Right Cleansing Routine
From washing your face with hot water to using products that are too abrasive or clog your pores, what you put on your skin is as important as what you put in your body through your diet.
See a Dermatologist
Your skin’s needs are unique and constantly changing, and navigating the endless choices of products and skin treatments can be confusing and overwhelming. The best way to identify your skin’s needs is to consult with a dermatologist for personalized care.
