No matter how much we try to take care of our skin, it is inevitable that with time skin becomes less smooth. As we age, our skin will age too, and it will begin to show signs of getting older. And unfortunately, but there is no perpetual youth elixir, not yet at least; the best we can do is to take care of our skin.
But be careful as what helped when we were younger might not be good when we get older. For skin that is getting older you will have to be careful with what you put on and what kind of creams and lotions you will use.
In the 20s
Although you might be at your peak, and it might seem that beauty will stay no matter what, you would be surprised how fast skin can betray you. In order to keep that younger look, you need to start with anti-aging skincare immediately. There is no age limit on when to start taking good care of your skin.
Vitamins A and C are most important to incorporate into your skincare routine. To keep your skin smooth and radiant you will have to use Glycolic Acid. Look for products that contain natural elements because you want to preserve your skin and not ruin it.
30s are here
When you cross into your 30s it is high time that you take skincare seriously and start using moisturizing creams more intensively. Your main worry will be the skin around the eyes, so try using night and day creams which will keep your skin hydrated and in time you will replenish your once youthful smooth skin look once more.
The 40s are not that bad
By now you should have developed a routine that will ensure that your skin stays as radiant as much as possible. Remember that now it is not enough that you take care of it only externally, but think about using supplements which can help from the inside as well.
Antioxidants are extremely important, as well as Vitamins A, C, D and E. Also, in this age it is not unusual that people undergo simple surgeries to tighten skin. Some even reach for Botox, which if used in moderation can rewind time on your skin and make you look young again.
Welcome to the 50s
Unfortunately, in your 50s many hormonal changes are happening and they will heavily influence your skin. However, it is possible to counter this effect by using products that contain a lot of phytoestrogens which helps restore the high concentration of estrogen receptors.
Moreover, the well-developed routine to keep your skin healthy and revitalized should be updated accordingly to keep your skin in top condition. And remember that hydration is key to having a beautiful wrinkleless skin for a long time to come. Furthermore, it is also important to build beauty from the inside as well, because having a healthy lifestyle will show on your skin.
