✨20’s SKIN: Skin care in your 20’s is incredibly important because what you do—or don’t do—sets the tone for how your skin looks in the future. Generally, skin in this period is at its healthiest. Skin cell renewal, collagen and elastin production are in their most optimal state. Skin is also mostly hydrated, plump and radiant
🛑Common skin concerns: acne, clogged pores, oily skin, irritation to skin from poor skin care habits
✨30’s SKIN: Your body is undergoing internal and external changes. Stresses of the past two decades start manifesting in visible skin changes. Cellular turnover slows down decreasing the rate of skin repair giving way to dull appearance. Diminished collagen production and function of oil and sweat glands means— loss of elasticity, thinner, drier lackluster skin.
Years of sun exposure, environmental factors and lifestyle choices combined with diminished collagen production leads appearance of fine lines, uneven texture and tone. In addition to all this gloriousness, under eye bags and circles are more visible.
✨40’s SKIN: This is a biological milestone as it is perimenopause— the period before menopause when the women experience a decline in estrogen levels. Hormone shift means a loss of elasticity and thinner skin resulting in visible sagging of skin notably in areas of the jaw, neck and chest. Skin issues from your 30’s such as; hyperpigmentation, increased pore size, fine lines especially around the lips and eyes, wrinkles dullness and dryness are more pronounced. Some develop adult acne & widening of teenage acne scars.
✨50s SKIN & beyond: Visible signs of sun damage and other environmental issues most noticeable at this age. Intrinsic and extrinsic causes of aging combine to yield more dramatic changes in skin. Skin appears: drier, dehydrated, blotchy, uneven, droopy & looser from decreased muscle tone and fat loss, pronounced wrinkles & age related growths.
