No matter if you are in your 20s, 30s, and 40s, you need to read this piece, period. Because I’ve compiled a handy pointers for anti-aging prevention steps – and doing it will surely help you in the long run. Read on!
For the girls of 20s, while (for now) you’re blessed with youthful skin that needs little tweaks to keep the imperfections in check, an anti-aging treatment is now essential for prevention, unlike before. And it doesn’t have to be a full-blown regime; as light and mild formulations is enough to maintain the youthfulness of your skin in the long run. Remember that collagen and elastin production start to slow down as you reach 25.
For example, exfoliating regularly and teaming up with an antioxidant serum (notably vitamin C) is a good start, as well as using a good, broad spectrum sunscreen is essential for an optimal protection for your skin (the sun is quite potent to cause some damages to it).
Don’t forget to keep your skin healthy from the inside – eat right with nutritious foods while avoiding the bad ones as much as you can (Cosmos aren’t healthy dear), as well incorporating good habits – self-tanner opposed to tanning beds; organic skin care products instead of synthetic ones. Simple and doable.
Ladies in their 30s, this is the time when you finally embrace your unique traits and free from any awkwardness during your younger years.
Simply continue what you’ve been doing in your 20s, although a higher formulation specially made for aging skin is required, as your skin’s regeneration mechanism is not as fast as before – that includes retinols, serum, rich and super hydrating moisturizers, as well a trip to the clinic to correct any imperfections.
In your 40s, that’s where you need a prescription strength formulation to address any aging issues (especially if you start any at all).
Apart from continuing all of good skin care habits as you used to do, during this time your skin’s new cell production, glutathione, hyaluronic acid, and other skin-beneficial ingredients really starts to slow down, hence you need to have nearly all of the products that are specially made to counter aging signs (look out for ingredients like azelaic acid and glycolic).
The use of sunscreen is more paramount than ever, and some skin-pampering routine should be done regularly instead of once a month.
Trust me, these are all what we can call as beauty-investment, even if you think these tips seems a lot of things to do (especially in the span of 20 years!); your skin will thank you for it.
