Skincare for Different Ages (20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond)
-The cliché “Age is just a number” may be true in some aspects of life, but when it comes to skincare, these numbers are so relevant that they can actually be the basis of your skincare regimen.
While we cannot do anything to stop aging, we can maintain our youthful, radiant, and healthy skin by doing the skincare routine apt for our age. Since our skin changes as we age, it’s not surprising that the miracle products that worked for us in our 20s won’t be the same products that we will need when we reach our 30s or 40s. As we age, we realize we have specific skin concerns that need to be addressed by certain skincare products.
Here are some tips and recommended products that will keep your skin nourished and beautiful at every age.
- For Any Age
- In Your 20s
- In Your 30s
- In Your 40s to 50s
Regardless of age, the best way to preserve healthy skin is to commit to a skincare routine—which involves cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and applying UV protection.
It all starts with knowing your skin really well. Find out your skin type, texture, and identify your skin concerns. Knowing your specific skin needs will help you pick the right products to include in your skincare routine.
First step is to gently yet thoroughly cleanse your skin. Use a mild cleanser like Cerave Facial Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin. Choose a cleanser that will not strip off your natural skin oil. Find one that is suited for your skin type and concern. To make sure no impurities are left on your pores, apply toner.
After cleansing your face, apply the Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate Serum. Regardless of your age, you can use this serum every morning and evening before applying your favorite moisturizer. This award-winning serum activates the skin’s inner defensive power and helps prevent aging damage while constantly promoting the skin’s beauty circulation.
Don’t forget to apply your sunscreen whether or not you’re busy outdoors. UV ray damage doesn’t choose an age, and it does not spare those who are staying at home. Look for a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen that has SPF30 or above.
One reliable sunscreen is the Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk, which is very lightweight, intensely water-resistant, and rub-resistant. It was formulated using Thermo Booster Technology, which uses the heat of the sun to make your UV protection stronger.
After applying all your skincare products and right before putting on makeup, apply ½ teaspoon of Anessa Sunscreen on your face, neck, and on each arm. Apply as well 1 teaspoon on each leg, front and back of your torso. Reapply every 2 hours, especially if you’re outdoors.
As much as your life is carefree, your skin in your 20s is still free from wrinkles and dark spots. But this does not mean that you can take skincare for granted. In your 20s, you certainly love staying up late, spending much time under the sun, and drinking. That carefree lifestyle of yours will sooner or later have a negative effect on your skin if you do not take skincare seriously as early as now.
While reducing fine lines isn’t your main concern yet, it’s time to begin giving extra care and protection to your skin. The best way to preserve healthy skin is to commit to a skincare routine for your 20s—which includes cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and applying UV protection.
After a productive day, it can be tempting to go straight to bed without washing your face. Never forget to remove make-up, excess sebum, and dirt on your face with a gentle fragrance-free cleanser. After washing your face, get rid of impurities left in your pores with ACWELL Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner.
Moisturize and protect your skin with Shiseido Waso Color Smart Day Moisturizer and the Oil Free Variant. This skin-brightening, tinted day moisturizer adapts to your skin color to enhance your skin tone with long-lasting hydration and helps protect your skin against UV rays and environmental stressors.
Was your social media feed filled with successive corporate promotions, wedding proposal photos, gender reveal announcements these past few years? That’s just one item ticked off on the certified “30 something” club. With a series of adulting events comes a list of new skincare concerns demanding you to take your skincare routine to the next level.
In your 30s, the mirror on the wall won’t lie to her queen. It will start showing you signs of skin aging such as fine lines, dullness, and discoloration. At this point in your life, your hormones are constantly changing, which may lead to breakouts, brown spots, dryness, and sensitivity.
Continue with your usual skincare routine, but add to your regimen some cult favorites that will address your specific 30something concern.
Say goodbye to skin dullness and other signs of aging with The Ordinary 100 % Organic Cold-Pressed Oil. Enriched with linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and pro-Vitamin A, this skincare oil effectively addresses different signs of skin aging, as well as your acne problems.
To prevent your skin from getting dry, apply Cerave Daily Moisturizing Lotion, which includes three essential ceramides and hyaluronic acid to effectively hydrate the skin and restore its protective barrier.
It is also important to prevent premature skin aging by protecting your skin from UV rays. Apply Mizumi UV Water Serum, a 100% Physical Sunscreen that provides PF50 + PA ++++, protecting the skin from radiation UVA1 / UVA2 / UVB.
They say, “life begins at 40!” With so many happy, contented and healthy people in their 40s and beyond, we can say this is true. That’s probably because experience and learnings along the way have made them better, stronger, wiser, and more beautiful. The same is true when it comes to skincare. By now, you must have discovered the routine and products that work for your skin and those that don’t. And you’re surely more open to exploring new ones that will address your new skincare concerns.
In your 40s and beyond, your hormones have a way to make your skin dryer. In this new chapter of your skin’s life, wrinkles start to become more noticeable. More dark spots appear on your face.
To address these new concerns, you need to step up your game. Be more proactive when it comes to keeping your skin hydrated and protected. After your basic skincare routine, apply Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Day Emulsion, a fresh, silky emulsion cream that directs internal sensory signals to visibly smooth out lines and wrinkles. It also delivers moisture to your skin and protects it from UV rays.
When you reach your 40s, you also need a skincare solution for your post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation concerns. To have radiant, smoother, and more even-toned skin, apply Cerave Resurfacing Retinol Serum. This lightweight and fast-absorbing face serum helps soften the look of post-acne blemishes. With regular use, this serum also reduces visible pores and refines the skin’s texture.
Never let go of your regular beauty rest sessions though you are now in your 40s. It’s still as important as before. Pamper your face with 15-20 minutes of relaxation with PAPA RECIPE Bombee Honey Mask Sheet. This face mask contains honey, a natural humectant that draws moisture from the air into your skin. It’s the beauty rest product you need to enjoy long-lasting hydration.
Of course, you still need to wear sunscreen regularly because you certainly still don’t want any harmful effects of the UVA rays. To protect your skin, apply Anessa Whitening UV Sunscreen Gel. With its added M-tranexamic acid, this sunscreen gel also helps lighten your dark spots. We highly recommend using this sunscreen when you’re indoors.
When you reach the golden age, you deal with a whole new set of skin changes including changes in collagen and skin elasticity. Say hello to new skincare products like Shiseido Vital Perfection Uplifting and Firming Cream, which visibly lifts, firms, and brightens your skin to reveal a firmer, revitalized complexion.
Continue nourishing your skin as you age. No matter what your age is, commit to a good skincare routine and use skincare products that can address your specific skincare concerns.
