Skin Care Through the Ages: Changing your skin care strategy decade by decade

Your skin care regime is extremely important in the process of achieving beautiful and glowing skin. If you are just washing your face with a cleanser, you are not doing all that you can to bring out your skin’s beauty. There are multiple ways to keep your skin feeling and looking healthy. For example, applying sunscreen every day will help your skin tremendously, in the long run. Sunblock every day is recommended for individuals of all ages. Along with applying sunscreen, there are procedures that you can try that will give your skin that extra healthy glow. However, as you age, your skin changes and so do the procedures.

Starting in your twenties, your skin is already beautiful. It is young and healthy. Basic home skin care is one of the main focuses in this age group. Along with skin care, however, you should try a variety of professional skin care treatments to help with basic maintenance and prevention. For example, laser hair removal and chemical peels are some of the procedures you can have done in your 20s. These treatments can help you look and feel your best while also slowing the signs of aging that many find to be bothersome once they enter their 30s.

The signs of aging begin to show sometime in your 30s. If you worked on prevention during your 20s, you’re ahead of the game and on your way to always looking “good for your age.” However, a little help can’t hurt. Line fillers and Botox become common in women and men in their 30s to slow the signs of aging, such as fine lines and volume loss.

Botox and fillers become much more common in your 40s as skin loses its elasticity and natural, youthful volume. So along with the regular skin care, Botox and fillers, many begin to consider laser skin resurfacing treatments to erase years of sun damage and aging. This also postpones the need for a surgical facelift.

Laser skin resurfacing becomes more common in your 50s as skin begins to sag more due to volume loss and lack of elasticity. Many will also begin considering surgical facelift procedures, but these can continue to be postponed with continued use of Botox, dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, and non-surgical skin tightening treatments.
