How to Build a SkinCeuticals Regimen for Your Age

SkinCeuticals products on a vanity

You’re never too young to start taking care of your skin. Taking a preventative approach by starting early will not only delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it will also put your skin in the best possible position to defend itself against pollution, the sun and other environmental aggressors that can age your skin prematurely.

As our skin changes with age, so should our skin care routine. To take the guesswork out of finding the right products for you, we talked to the experts at SkinCeuticals. Here they give us the lowdown on the changes your skin goes through each decade, as well as a few recommendations to help you kickstart your skin care routine.

Skin Care in Your 20s

Although products with anti-aging benefits are not necessary in your 20s, it’s important to keep your skin properly hydrated and moisturized at this age, so a good moisturizer is a must even if you have oily skin. Aside from religiously using your sunscreen, it’s also a good idea to start introducing your skin to antioxidants, which can help protect your skin from the sun and prevent premature signs of age. As acne might still be a concern from time to time, keep a spot treatment on hand.

    Skin Care in Your 30s
    As skin’s ability to repair and renew itself begins to slow down, it’s important to start adding anti-aging solutions to your regimen to correct first signs of aging (loss of radiance and fine lines) while keeping your skin moisturized. Pigmentary concerns also begin to set in around age 30, caused by damage incurred when you were in your 20s. Aside from adding an advanced pigment corrector, consider including a potent exfoliant to your routine, as well as a lightly tinted sunscreen to help correct and protect your skin at the same time.

    Skin Care in Your 40s
    As cellular turnover and collagen production continue to slow down, you’ll start to see more signs of age. You’ll also notice that your skin’s ability to fight off environmental aggressors isn’t as good as before. When this happens, it’s important to adopt a full anti-aging routine, which should include a potent antioxidant and retinol. Retinol has been clinically proven to reduce collagen-degrading enzymes and stimulate the skin’s collagen production.

    Skin Care in Your 50s
    Aging skin is increasingly susceptible to lipid depletion, or the loss of natural compounds in skin’s surface (ceramides, natural cholesterol and fatty acids). This lipid loss compromises skin’s natural protective barrier, resulting in visible signs of accelerated aging. To make matters worse, skin loses its ability to effectively self-repair. At this time, it’s important to remain diligent with the skin care routine you’ve built in your 40s, and at the same time, be mindful of pigmentation disorders that might become more apparent in your 50s. To address this, arm yourself with a dark-spot concentrate to even out your skin tone.

    Skin Care in Your 60s and Beyond
    After 60, skin starts to sag and becomes drier. This is why it’s ever more important to introduce a rich moisturizer to your regimen that focuses on skin’s visible density and bounce. As pigmentation disorders may exacerbate in your 60s, an intense peel serum at night can be beneficial to reduce dark spots and maintain skin’s evenness.
