Your skin is ever-changing. Sadly, we’re not destined to maintain the ever-soft baby skin we came into this world with. That doesn’t mean that our skin can’t be great no matter what stage of life we’re in. You can and should adjust your beauty routine to your skin’s needs as it changes.
How your skin changes with age
As we mature, acne begins to look like one of the least of our worries, and things like fine lines, dehydration, and hyperpigmentation become a bigger concern as our skin’s regenerative processes begin to slow down. Here’s a little break down of what your routine should look like at different stages of your life.
- Blemish control
If you haven’t been already water and sunscreen should be a HUGE portion of your daily routine. Your body is 70% water, and your skin is the biggest organ. If your body’s dehydrated, your skin’s dehydrated, and dehydrated skin is not youthful-looking skin.
There’s a reason your mom was so adamant about sunscreen growing up. It works! As warm and friendly as the Sun feels, its effects on your skin are anything BUT. Protecting your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays can be the difference between fine lines or wrinkles in your 30s. The better you treat your skin when you’re younger, the better it will look and the healthier it will be when you’re older.
