Following the right skincare routine according to your age is essential to preventing or delaying signs of aging as well as boosting the health of your skin.
What you are doing for your skin now will have a short and long term effect on how it will look in 10, 15 or more years from now.
Sun damaged skin ages faster and protecting your skin from the sun at an early age will help you have a younger and healthier looking skin.
Genetics, lifestyle and skincare habits all affect the way your skin looks. Also, everyone’s skin is different. For example, while some people need to use retinoids in their mid 30´s, others might only need them in their 40´s.
In this article, you will find anti aging skincare tips and anti aging ingredients according to your age.
1. Skincare In Your Early 20’s
At this age, you need a good quality cleanser according to your skin type that will not be harsh or irritating to your skin but gentle and hydrating. If you have sensitive skin, I would recommend Pai Cleanser.
Apart from cleansing your skin properly and not over cleansing it, you will also need a hydrating moisturizer that will not clog your pores. Avoid anti aging ingredients at this age and go for an effective natural and organic moisturizer that absorbs nicely into your skin and makes it look healthy and glowing.
Also, don’t forget your face sunscreen to prevent sun damage and skin dehydration. If you have dry skin, you can use a hydrating mask once a week and if you have oily or combination skin, you might want to use a pore cleansing natural mask such as Dead Sea Mud Mask or Charcoal Mask. For sensitive skin types that are oily with dry patches a Rhassoul Clay Mask would be the perfect match.
2. Skincare In Your Late 20’s
During this period, most of us realize that skincare is more important than what we thought it was, so we start looking for skincare tips and effective products to enhance our skin’s beauty and health.
At this age, many people do not deal with very visible signs of aging but may start seeing fine lines under eyes forming since this area is thinner and more vulnerable to aging than the area of the face or the forehead.
These fine lines can easily be smoothed out and removed if you use a good eye cream or serum daily. To prevent and deal with these signs of aging, choose creams and serums that are rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Apart from their anti-aging strength, these ingredients will help even your skin tone and boost the glow of your complexion.
Some other natural antioxidant ingredients are pomegranate oil, green tea and rosehip oil.
Aloe Vera moisturizing creams are good moisturizing creams for this age.
3. Skincare In Your 30’s
Serums are very important during this period such as hyaluronic acid serums to hold in moisture, vitamin C serums to boost collagen and deal with age spots, sun spots and discoloration as well as Vitamin B3 serums that have anti aging benefits and at the same time are good for acne breakouts.
This period is really important for boosting your skin with good quality effective products that will make it more resistant to aging. An effective hydrating cream that is also anti-aging is needed during this period.
Look for moisturizers that contain Q10, peptides, algae extracts and resveratrol. Some people start using Retinoids and OTC Retinol creams in their 30’s while others do so in their 40’s.
I like mixing my Q10 moisturizing cream with a smaller amount of 2.5% retinol cream. You can also use a moisturizing cream during the day and go for a richer anti-aging cream at night.
If you have puffiness and dark circles under your eyes, look for peptides in eye serums and creams.
Natural oils that are rich in fatty acids and lipids are also very helpful for moisturizing, nourishing, conditioning and keeping your skin more youthful looking and resistant to aging.
Favorite natural oils for this purpose are Squalane Oil, Rosehip Oil, Marula Oil, Castor Oil and Tamanu Oil.
In addition, AHA acid cleansers and masks that remove dead skin cells are absolutely necessary for revealing a fresh, rejuvenated and more youthful looking complexion.
4. Skincare In Your 40’s
If your skin does not reveal your real age, there is one thing at this age that might have skipped your full attention and that is the neck!
This is the dangerous period when you may start obsessing about aging or just accept it and start looking for healthy ways to makes its signs less visible.
It is during this period that your skin will start losing some of its firmness and moisture while wrinkles and fine lines will start becoming more visible.
This is the time you will seriously need to think about a neck firming cream. Always keep your skin adequately moisturized and nourished, and boost it with skin serums that contain anti wrinkle and firming agents.
Good anti aging ingredients are peptides such as Matrixyl, Argireline and eyeliss, as well as copper peptides, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and retinoids.
For crow’s feet or other deep wrinkles, look for products that can optically fill up wrinkles.
Also, don´t forget AHA acids for their rejuvenating effect as well as collagen boosting face masks.
5. Skincare In Your 50’s
One of the first signs of menopause is skin dehydration. For this reason, apart from a rejuvenating cream, you will also need a rich moisturizing cream as well as a concentrated anti aging serum.
One to two times a week, it’s also good to apply a restorative hydrating mask which you can leave on your skin all night long and of course other skin tightening and firming products.
Copper peptides (check our copper peptide serum review) are good for tightening loose skin, improving elasticity, increasing collagen and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
6. Skincare In Your 60’s
After menopause, you may notice your skin becoming very dry and dull with signs of discoloration. At the same time, the law of gravity and the drastic reduction of collagen and elastin lead to the visible loosening of the skin.
To be able to deal with those visibly aging signs, look for restorative, nourishing and rich moisturizing ingredients in your day creams, night creams as well as eye creams.
Use products that lock the moisture in your skin and go for healthy natural options that boost your skin’s health and beauty overall.
Finally, don’t forget that your skin will always look beautiful at any age as long as you care for it the right way and follow a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
