Skincare for your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s

The Right Skincare for Your Age: (H1)

Our skin changes as we age and so should our skincare. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by skincare and need help deciding what your routine should look like, we’re here to help!

We strongly suggest that you use medical grade skincare because it’s formulated and overseen by a medical professional who specialises in skincare. You’ll get much better results than from drugstore brands or even celebrity skincare lines. We highly recommend Zo Skin Health; a trusted brand that was created by a world-renowned dermatologist and skin care researcher.


Skincare in Your Teens (H2)

Your teens are a great time to start your skincare routine! You’re at a higher risk for oily skin and breakouts, so you’ll want a routine that tackles that. It’s also a great time to start consistently wearing SPF—trust us, your future self will thank you.


An ideal skincare routine for teens: (H2)


Cleanser

We love this Gentle Cleanser by Zo Skin Health or this Exfoliating Cleanser with Salicylic Acid if you’re struggling with acne.


Toner

Check out these Oil Control Pads! Even if you don’t struggle with break outs (lucky you), the glycolic acid will help gently exfoliate to give you a bright, even complexion.


Moisturiser

Even if you’re suffering with more oily skin, do not skip the moisturiser! We love this lightweight moisturiser.


SPF (AM)

Be sure to use a broad-spectrum SPF of at least 30 every day.


Skincare in Your 20’s (H2)

When you hit your 20’s, you might still be struggling with acne and will want to start thinking more about preventing the signs of ageing. If you really want to get a head start on ageing gracefully, using anti-aging products in your 20’s plus excellent sun protection behaviour will make a huge difference to how your skin looks in 20 to 30 years.


Should I use anti-aging products in my 20’s? (H2)

Yes! Prevention is always easier than correcting, and if you don’t start a proper skincare routine you could begin seeing fine lines as early as you're mid 20’s. Research shows that after you turn 20, your collagen levels start decreasing by 1% every year.


Is it OK to use retinol in your 20’s? (H2)

Yes! We love retinol and your 20’s is a perfect age to start. Retinol helps prevent the signs of ageing and increases cell turnover. When we’re younger, our skin cells turn over and regenerate every 14 days, when we get into our 20’s, it slows down to every 24-30 days. This contributes to ageing, as well as dull-looking skin.

Skincare in Your 30’s (H2)

Your 30’s is when you’ll start to see more visible signs of ageing. Some of this is from reduced collagen, elastin, and a slower cell turnover rate, but a lot of it is from sun damage. You’ll want your skincare to promote collagen, elasticity, and regeneration, while healing and correcting sun damage.


Is it too late to start skincare in 30s? (H2)

No, it’s definitely not too late and many women don’t start to get serious about their skincare until their 30’s. Just remember, that you’ll want to invest in quality skincare and that consistency is key!


Is it OK to use retinol in your 30s? (H2)

Yes, if your skin can tolerate it, you should definitely be using a retinol in your 30s. Retinol is an anti-aging hero ingredient!


What happens to your skin in your 30s? (H2)

As we mentioned above, the main changes to your skin in your 30’s are decreased levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Your cell turnover and skin repair rate also slow down. You’ll also start to see your years of sun exposure show on your skin.

Skincare in Your 40’s (H2)

You might start to struggle with hormonal acne again, as well as dryness due to decreased levels of oestrogen. This is when you’ll also really start to notice the decrease in elasticity, leading to more saggy skin.


Is it too late to take care of my skin at 40? (H2)

No, it’s never too late to start taking care of your skin! Again, you’ll want to invest in high-quality, medical grade skincare and potentially start thinking about in-office treatments to achieve your desired results.


How often should a 40-year-old exfoliate? (H2)

You’ll want to exfoliate around 2-3 times per week, but only if you need it. If you notice your skin’s texture is staying smoother and even for longer, there’s no need to overdo it!

Skincare in Your 50’s (H2)

Dryness might reach an all-new level as natural sebum (oil) production decreases, so you’ll want to supplement with intense moisturiser and even spritz your face throughout the day!


How can I get glowing skin after 50? (H2)

You’ll want to be consistent with your skincare routine with a focus on replenishing lost volume, elasticity, and moisture. It might also be a good time to consider in office treatments. You should always start with a consultation with a trust practitioner.


Can you start using retinol in your 50s? (H2)

Yes! It’s never too late to start taking care of your skin and retinol is a well-researched and effective ingredient for all ages. It’s especially impactful for more mature skin since it helps encourage cellular turnover and collagen production.


The ideal skincare routine in your 50’s: (H2)

If you’re reading this, it’s your sign to start consistently taking care of your skin and protecting it from further sun damage! The earlier you start the better your results will be and the healthier and more youthful your skin will be as you age.
