It is never too early nor too late to start caring for your skin. And while the aging process itself cannot be changed, a proper skincare routine is an integral component of successful anti-aging. As you age and change throughout the years, it’s important to make lifestyle decisions that will not only benefit your health, but will benefit your skin as well. That’s why staying proactive with skincare management will help you maintain a youthful appearance for years to come.
Although you can’t turn back the hands of time, you can take simple skin rejuvenating steps to make it look as if you did. Modern technology has made it possible for us to undergo cosmetic procedures that help rejuvenate and revitalize our appearance, many of which are safely and non-invasively performed with little to no downtime. Any skincare mistakes you may have made in previous years can often be corrected with carefully selected skin rejuvenation procedures that are customized to your needs.
With that being said, here’s a basic guide to skincare management throughout the decades, so you can start being more proactive and less reactive in regards to the health of your skin.
Skin Rejuvenation in Your 20’s
Your skin may look great throughout your twenties, but it’s important to remember that this is a key time to protect your skin from damage and prevent premature aging. While you may not be showing signs of wrinkles or sun damage, they can appear later in life. That’s why it’s important to understand that establishing a proper skincare routine in your 20’s is imperative. For starters, wear sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of at least 30 and apply it to your skin every day. You should also be using a high quality skincare line with active ingredients that are customized to your specific skin type and that can address your specific skin concerns.
In addition to implementing a proper skincare routine, some women in their twenties may begin undergoing routine peels, lasers and injection treatments for preventative aging. As a matter of fact, these treatments have revolutionized anti-aging, not only because they do not involve invasive incisions, but because they can be used to prevent the signs of aging before they appear. The rapidly growing awareness among skin rejuvenation treatments used for preventative aging has made them a preferred treatment of choice for many twenty-somethings.
Skin Rejuvenation in Your 30’s
A common skincare concern for women in their thirties is the development of fine line and wrinkles. That’s why skin rejuvenation in your twenties is such a good idea, as these treatments can be an excellent way to facilitate a quicker turnover of skin cells, drawing out impurities and leaving you with more youthful-looking skin.
Like in your twenties, using a high quality skincare line is also a crucial component to slow the visible signs of aging in your thirties. Beautiful skin is a lifelong process, and developing a daily skincare routine today can help you keep beautiful skin for the future. An important ingredient to look at this stage is retinol – a vitamin A compound that promotes cellular turnover and collagen production, smoothing out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
In combination with routine facial peels and laser treatments, injections can be a great way to prevent wrinkles before they really set in. Using smaller doses in your thirties, for example, will decrease the facial movements that add up to wrinkles over time. At this age, most women only need treatments once or twice yearly.
Skin Rejuvenation in Your 40’s
Throughout your forties, you may begin to notice deeper wrinkles and sagging tissue on the face and neck regions, as well as uneven skin tone and discolouration. While you should continue using a high quality skincare line that contains active ingredients like antioxidants and vitamins, you can also supplement your at-home skincare routine with injections, dermal fillers, facial peels and lasers.
A primary concern for many women in their forties is deflation or a complete loss of volume in the facial anatomy. If you haven’t yet tried dermal fillers, you could be pleasantly surprised by their effectivity at restoring volume to the cheeks, lips and areas around the mouth. Dermal fillers are also effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving you a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Skin Rejuvenation in Your 50’s & 60’s
In addition to peels and injections, laser resurfacing treatments are excellent at providing noticeable anti-aging results. Such treatments encompass state-of-the-art equipment and use radio frequency therapies to target sun damage, deep wrinkles and imperfections. At The Plastic Surgery Clinic, we offer radio frequency and intense pulsed light skin rejuvenating treatments, which will successfully reduce the look of wrinkles, all while tightening the skin and removing discolouration. These treatments are an excellent choice for those looking to restore skin clarity and youthfulness with little to no downtime.
There are also various skincare lines that are designed for women over fifty who may have more anti-aging needs than someone in their thirties. Women in their fifties should be looking for skincare products with exceptional, high quality peptides, vitamins, botanicals, and emollients designed specifically for maturing skin. Ingredients like EMC10, a membrane protein complex that is exclusive to Miracle 10’s platinum collection Hyaluronic acid, and highly quality botanical extracts are key in restoring a more youthful looking appearance.
