Best Skin Care Tips For Different Age Groups:
Tulsi Gosai, skin care expert and co-founder of Akihi, shared with HT Lifestyle some essential skin care tips for different age groups for healthy and glowing skin.
For your 20s: The 20s are the most energized and charged years for your skin, just like the rest of your body. Collagen, a skin protein, is abundant and naturally gives your skin a youthful glow. In fact, the skin doesn’t actually need much external support because the cells are still young and capable of rejuvenation. Acne, hormonal changes and sun exposure are the main concerns of this age. Having a basic skincare routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection can work wonders. A skin-type specific cleanser, hydrating moisturizer and broad-spectrum sunscreen keep your skin glowing and bouncy, laying a solid foundation for healthy skin later in life.
For Your 30s: While most things from your 20s skin care kit would follow through to your 30s, there are certain additions that need to be made to meet your skin’s updated needs. Given the amount of personal and professional responsibilities that 30 brings, the stress can eventually take its toll on your skin. And the result would be hyperpigmentation, fine lines, sun spots and dark circles under the eyes. Here, incorporating hyaluronic acid, moisturizers or serums rich in antioxidants and anti-aging products into your skincare routine is the perfect move as they tighten and brighten your skin and give it a glowing effect similar to that of your years’ 20.
For Your 40s: As you enter your 40s, the signs of aging become quite apparent. Pigmentation begins to deteriorate and crow’s feet and forehead creases begin to appear. Given that women are entering menopause at this age, the related imbalances begin to affect the skin by making it drier and less elastic. Switching to a non-foaming hydrating cleanser, rich and thicker moisturizer, vitamin C serums, peptides and antioxidants will preserve your skin’s natural texture and prevent it from becoming dry or lifeless during this time. In addition, it will prove beneficial in the future to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay hydrated during this time.
For people over 50 and older: Besides dry skin, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, sagging is another skin problem that comes to light as you enter your 50s. Your skin becomes thinner and slacker due to decreased amounts of collagen and elastin. So if you’re picking up skincare products at this age, it’s time to switch to super-moisturizing products so your skin can overcome unnecessary dryness. Prioritize glycerin, cetearyl alcohol, ceramides and hyaluronic acid as the primary ingredients when preparing your skin care routine as this will keep your skin well nourished and protected.
“Don’t let age affect your skin with the right skincare routine. By tailoring your skincare regimen to your age-specific needs, you can solve problems such as moisture loss, collagen degradation and more pronounced signs of aging. You can keep your skin looking healthy and youthful throughout different periods of your life by following the above recommendations,” concludes Tulsi.
