Caring for your skin at any age
Looking after your skin in your 20’s is quite different to what your skin needs in your 50’s. For soft, smooth and healthy skin, learn what’s important in a skincare routine by understanding the processes that happen as we grow older.
In your 20’s – Balance
With great collagen support, your skin is supple and shows little signs of damage providing a plump, line free complexion. However with a delicate line between oily and dry, along with experimenting with different skincare and cosmetics, striking a balance to keep pores clean can be a challenge. The main concern in this decade is acne, with many women experiencing spots well out of adolescence. This is also the decade for prevention from sun damage so as to not accelerate the decline of collagen and elastin within the skin.
20’s skincare routine:
Be gentle with your skin and keep it simple. Focus on gently cleansing away pore clogging compounds and not stripping the natural oils that keep your skin healthy.
That great makeup look you wore? Wash it off before bed. Try Qsilica Remove Makeup & Grime Cleansing Gel which is suitable for all skin types.
Spot treat blemishes, and consider an internal cleansing supplement for more persistent breakouts.
Address balance for your skin. It may mean having a number of different skincare products to balance the fine line between dry & flaky or oily & clogged.
A hat & sunglasses are a must to protect delicate eye skin and keep the UV away.
In your 30’s – Support
With cell turnover slowing down and some loss of collagen, skin can appear to dull and lose some of its youthful glow in your 30’s. The main concern in this decade is the emergence of fine lines, particularly around the eyes and mouth, along with a tired complexion. In this decade, acne and oily skin tends to fade, with dryness and the first signs of lines coming to the fore.
30’s skincare routine:
Step up exfoliation to encourage cell turnover, using a microbead-free exfoliator at night, when skin renewal occurs.
Choose a moisturiser that deeply hydrates and relaxes skin, particularly at night.
With sleep challenges common due to work and family commitments in your 30’s, ensure you’re getting enough sleep to improve your tired complexion. Beauty Sleep Skin Regeneration sends the sleep signals, whilst feeding the nutrients into your skin cells.
Make friends with antioxidants in your diet and skincare, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A & Green Tea that will protect against damage and also promote healing.
In your 40’s & 50’s – Boost
With oil (sebum) production really dropping in your 40’s, your skin is more prone to drying. The dermal layers of the skin lose elasticity and skin can become more fragile. With cell turnover declining further, healing can be slower and the fine lines may seem to have settled right in! In your 40’s & 50’s, it’s all about boosting moisture for your skin barrier and structure.
A cream or oil cleanser may suit skin more in your 40’s and 50’s
Exfoliate just once a week to remove a build-up of dead skin cells
Lean on science and nature where ingredients have been proven to boost collagen production to fill in lines and plump the skin
A night cream is a must for skin cell regeneration while you sleep
Above all we recommend treating your skin kindly with naturally derived ingredients and enjoying the story it tells at any age. As a true beauty icon said, “True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. The beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” – Audrey Hepburn.
