Achieving and maintaining radiant-looking skin is a universal desire that transcends any age. Whether you're a teenager or you're embracing the wisdom that comes with maturing, your skin deserves tender loving care. From 18 to 60+, let's delve into the intricacies of skincare across different age groups, so you have a skincare routine tailored to your needs.
The foundation of healthy skin (18 - 25)
Your late teens and early twenties are all about laying the foundation for your skin. Focus on establishing good skincare habits and a simple routine with preventative measures. Cleansing, gentle exfoliation and hydration are all crucial to maintain a clear complexion, prevent breakouts and support the skin's natural balance. If you're looking for a preventative measure too, you might like to lightly incorporate a retinol product into your routine too.
Nurturing and protecting (25-35)
As Samantha would say on Sex and The City, welcome to my box! As we start to regret our days of living carefree in the sunshine, the emphasis shifts to nurturing and protecting our skin. Now is the time to introduce anti-ageing elements into your routine (regardless of the fact that we were twenty years old about two weeks ago!). Keep your basic routine, but think about taking hydrating, retinol and vitamin C products more seriously now. If you were dabbling in them before, it's time for consistency. Hydrated skin will help to plump out fine lines and wrinkles, while a vitamin C can help to even out pigmented skin (from sun damage). A retinol helps with just about every skin goal under the sun - pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, you name it.
Renewal and rejuvenation (35-60+)
In your late thirties and beyond, your skin's renewal processes begin to slow down. Fine lines, wrinkles and an uneven skin tone might become more noticeable if you haven't been taking preventive measures earlier. Given the set of skin goals for maturing skin, a retinol now is a must. But it's also time for a regenerative treatment too. Restore bounce, encourage skin cell renewal, restore a compromised skin barrier, replenish moisture and protect against environmental aggressors with a luxurious facial oil like Yester Youth: Regenerating Facial Oil.
Universal steps for radiant skin
Regardless of age, always maintain a simple but effective skincare routine that includes cleansing, hydration and sun protection. Depending on your unique skin, add in a targeted treatment or two to address your specific skin concerns. Remember to achieve the results your after, patience and consistency are key.
When it comes to patience, we talk about how long it really takes your skincare to work here. If consistency has piqued your interest, we talk more on the topic here for you. And, when it comes to maintaining a simple routine, we talk about the benefits of skin minimalism here, too.
Remember, skincare is a journey. While no two journeys will be exactly the same, one thing is fore sure - it takes time, patience and consistency. Embrace the beauty of every age and nourish your skin accordingly. If you need any tailored advice or help with your skincare routine, book a personalised skin consult with us.
