Beauty By Decades: Skincare According To Age | Clozette

Wrinkles are inevitable. As of now, we're yet to find a device or ingredient that would grant us eternal youthful skin. But even though we can't defy skin ageing, we can still at least do something to keep it healthy at all ages. Here's a general skincare guide according to age. Remember, it's never too early or too late to start taking care of your skin. 

For Those In Their 20s

People often say that your skin is in its best condition in your 20s. It's that time when you're (almost) done with puberty and hormonal acne (there are cases of adult acne, but let's leave that for another story), and the time before you get fine lines. Your goal is to establish a basic skincare regimen and to prevent premature ageing.

First, it's a good idea to swap your acne-busting cleansers for gentle and non-drying ones. The double cleansing method is also highly recommended to get rid of any dirt, makeup, and grime. For toners and moisturisers, go for something more balancing. Now is also the time to slather on sunscreen regularly;  make this a habit and your skin will go a long way. Using anti-ageing products may be too early for now, so the best thing to do is to focus on hydration and skin protection.

If you've been diligent with your skincare routine in your 20s, then all you need is to upgrade your stash to include serums and boosters to keep that glow and bounce in your skin. Splurge in different kinds of serums to address every skin issue. You should also look at exfoliating acids to help skin turnover and maintain smooth complexion. 

Aside from skincare, it's important to visit a dermatologist and ask for professional and personalised advice on how to keep your skin in good shape. At this time, be careful with using anti-ageing products; don't use retinoids without consulting professionals first to know the right dosage for your skin. 

For Those In Their 40s And Beyond

By your 40s, you can already see evident signs of ageing. The battle with dry and dull skin has officially started. At this point, you should already have an established anti-ageing skincare routine. So your attention should focus on lifestyle choices that could negatively affect your skin. Now is the time to seriously commit to living a healthier life. Strive to get a full night's sleep, cut back on carbs and sweets, exercise regularly and avoid unnecessary sun exposure, among other things.

If you're considering advanced anti-ageing techniques, again do your research first and consult with a professional before trying collagen injections, stem cells treatments and the like.
