In Your Twenties, Maintain That Glow

So, you’re in your twenties and your skin glows. It’s elastic, hydrated, and (best of all) full of collagen. It’s also full of natural oils, which makes you prone to break out more often. With this in mind, as a smart twenty-something, you should start your day with a non-comedogenic or oil-free cleanser followed by an oil-free moisturizer with sunscreen. Before going to bed, the routine should consist of gentle cleanser followed by an oil-free moisturizer. Exfoliating a few times a week will help reduce breakouts. Guys who shave should spend the extra buck on shaving cream that contains moisturizer to prevent ingrown hairs.

In Your Thirties, Be Proactive

Now you’re in your thirties, Vitamin A will be your secret weapon against aging. You’re starting to lose elasticity and the collagen that was abundant in your twenties is now less so. As always, pay extra attention to the label on your daily moisturizer to ensure it includes broad-spectrum sunscreen. Moreover, now is the perfect time to start incorporating anti-aging creams into your overnight regimen. In addition, your aim will be to increase collagen production in your skin, so when you’re shopping for products, look for ones that contain Vitamin A with retinoids. Also, now is the time to start focusing on your eyes. Keep in mind retinol products for around the eyes should be gentler than the cream, serum, or moisturizer you’re using on your face since the skin there is thinner.

In Your Forties, Fifties, and Beyond, Step it Up

Welcome to your forties and fifties. On the plus side, you’re probably not breaking out since your skin isn’t secreting as much natural oil as did in your twenties. Because of this, you’ll want to use thicker moisturizer. Again, read the label and find a product containing hyaluronic acid – this is a terrific agent for helping replenish and retain skin moisture. You’ll also want to incorporate more anti-aging products into your daily regimen. This is also the time in your life when antioxidants like Vitamin C will come into play to help slow the degradation of collagen and help brighten and treat photodamaged skin. In your mornings, don’t limit your Vitamin C intake to just your breakfast orange juice. A gentle cleanser followed by a Vitamin C serum and moisturizer containing hyaluronic acid (and sunscreen) is the perfect way to start your day. At night, use a gentle cleanser followed by retinol cream and hyaluronic acid-based moisturizer before bed.
