How To Take Care Of Your Skin At Every Age

How To Take Care Of Your Skin At Every Age

Your skin is yours for life. Ageing beautifully is all about taking the best care of the skin you’ve been given - and embracing how it changes as you age. Here’s our skin tips to put your best face forward no matter the number of candles on your birthday cake!

Skincare in your 20s

It’s the time to get into good skincare habits - your future face will thank you

In your early 20s? When it comes to skin; lucky you! Collagen is still plentiful and skin is usually looking plump and wrinkle-free. Deal with any acne and breakout issues by switching to a gentle cleanser - ditch those harsh, soapy cleansers from your teens as these can make the breakout situation worse. 

Collagen production decreases little more each year and closer to 30 you may begin to notice fine lines. If you aren’t already, your 20s is the time to get into the habit of daily sunscreen. It’s the numero uno thing you can do to help your skin age as well as possible. 

Using a routine of organic skincare products is also a smart skincare habit to start as early as possible. The fewer chemicals you put onto your face and body over the years, the better.


Skincare in your 30s

Get serious about incorporating products to slow the signs of ageing

Hitting the big 3-0 and beyond you’ll begin to notice your skin isn’t quite as plump as it used to be. Collagen is naturally decreasing so your first fine lines and wrinkles will begin to show. 

Skin cell turnover also slows so you may notice your complexion is a little duller than it used to be. A regular exfoliation session will rescue you though, sloughing away those dead cells for brighter, clearer skin. 

Show your neck and decolletage some love! Signs of ageing are beginning to show in these areas you might not be paying enough attention too. Always apply your organic moisturiser, face oil and sunscreen on your neck and decolletage too.

Skincare in your 40s

Hydration, Hydration, Hydration

Keeping hydration levels on point is key for beautiful skin in your 40s. You’ll find skin is much drier than it once with less natural sebum. Hormonal changes in this decade may lead to hyperpigmentation and broken capillaries may begin to appear. 

To combat increased dryness and loss of firmness, introduce an antioxidant-rich night moisturiser and a face oil or serum into your routine if you haven’t already. 


Skincare in your 50s and beyond

Continue hydrating and protecting fragile skin

Skin really requires special, gentle care in your 50s and beyond. Skin is thinner and more sensitive to environmental factors and the ingredients in your skincare and beauty products. 

Stick with chemical-free certified organic skincare to minimise the number of toxins you’re putting onto your skin every day. 

Swapping to a cream cleanser will help retain much needed hydration and strengthen your skin barrier.
