The skin on our face is extremely sensitive. At each age, the skin has its needs and we must take care of it thoroughly to delay the signs of aging. But how do we choose the right care products based on our age and skin condition? These are our tips for facial skin care according to your age.
Our skin changes as the years go by. Every decade we have to adapt our care products to the new needs of our skin.
In essence, what we have to do is follow the basic rules of skin care and adapt them to the needs of our skin (oily skin, wrinkles, relaxation, etc.)
Facial skin care according to our age
Here is a short guide to the most basic rules of care for each decade of your life.
Facial skin care at the age of 20
When we are 20 years old our facial skin shines. All we need is a good moisturizer because our skin is still tough and rich in collagen. In our twenties our skin is continually renewed. Use a good natural or commercial moisturizer that really nourishes you.
With regard to cleansing, only completely clean skin can receive and reap the benefits of the cream. Night cream is not necessary at this age; it is too early. No need to overload skin care products. However, after age 25, you can choose a light cream for the area around the eyes. It is the moment when the first wrinkles appear in this area. If you have oily skin, you can add a mask for a deep cleansing, and if you have dry skin, prefer a deep hydration mask.
In our twenties, the most important thing is to have good habits and clean our face every day, morning and afternoon. Do not go to bed with your face and your eyes make up. The consequences will not be seen the next morning only on the pillow, they will appear on your face within the next fifteen to twenty years.
If you fall asleep with your makeup on, your skin looks dull in the morning because you don't breathe at night, and if you don't remove your eye makeup, in the morning there will be bags under your eyes or fatigue marks as during the nocturnal microparticles of the products that pass through the skin.
Face skin care at the age of 30
After 30 years, the cellular metabolism begins to grow more slowly with what this implies. Our skin does not renew itself so quickly and collagen production begins to decrease. The first expression wrinkles make their appearance, while in dry skin we can see the first signs of dehydration. Now is the time to start the proper anti-aging treatment to prevent the signs of time. The night cream is not necessary yet, you can avoid it. But what you should not miss is a good cream for the area around the eyes, an extremely delicate area.
Just as you take care of your face, you need to take care of your neck. The creams should also be placed on the neck area and spread with a gentle massage. The neck is one of the first signs of age. Don't forget your neck!
Facial skin care at the age of 40
At age 40, expression lines become more intense. Wrinkles are now visible on our face and appear not only around the eyes but also in the lower part of the face (corners of the mouth, throat). After 45, our skin becomes thinner and begins to lose elasticity. At this age we notice the first signs of skin relaxation.
The need for anti-aging care is now essential. We suggest an anti-aging set that is tailored to the needs of your skin, which includes a day cream, an anti-aging serum and a rich eye cream with a firming and refreshing action. Creams that are suitable for this age are richer and more hydrating. This is because especially after a woman enters the climacteric phase, the skin begins to dehydrate more easily.
Therefore, once a week, you can offer the necessary moisture to your face with a rich deep hydrating mask. Your skin will thank you.
Sun protection is essential. Do not forget to use your sunscreen with a high protection index (more than 30) every day, every time of the year, even when it is cloudy.
Tips for skin care after 50's
With menopause, a woman's skin changes texture, becomes thinner, more relaxed, and produces less collagen. Cell renewal slows down as the skin becomes drier. At this age, the first spots appear on the skin. A rich cream with anti-aging and firming action, a miracle serum with multiple action (hydration, relaxation, shine), moisturizing and regenerating night cream and a reinforcing eye cream. Moisturizing and nourishing creams can make up for all skin deficiencies.
Anti-wrinkle creams are suitable for smoothing deep wrinkles that are already on your face. Anti-aging creams offer a more complete care, since they act against wrinkles and relaxation and aim to nourish, hydrate, rebuild and tighten the skin.
Tips for facial skin care
Anti-aging means sun protection. Take care of the skin according to your age. The harmful effects of the sun on our skin are mainly attributable to ultraviolet radiation (UVA). More specifically, the UVA rays that are emitted from the sun throughout the year, regardless of the weather, outside temperature, and clouds, penetrate our clothing, penetrate deep into the skin and affect its cells.
UVA rays are responsible for premature aging of the skin and all that this implies: wrinkles, dehydration and relaxation. For this reason, it is necessary to use a sunscreen with a high level of protection on a daily basis. Don't restrict the use of facial sunscreen in the summer months or even worse during the holiday season. The sun is harmful to our skin.
The lack of sleep can leave you physically hungry due to two hormones: Ghrelin and Leptin. Ghrelin signals hunger and Leptin is responsible for stopping it. Low secretions of leptin (due to sleep deprivation) can slow down your metabolism and leave you with constant feelings of hunger. Sleep deprivation can also affect the secretion of cortisol, one of the hormones that regulate your appetite.
