At Sweet Spun Beauty, we are obsessed with beauty, and obsessed with our skin. We want to keep it looking radiant and youthful, and we want to help your skin do the same. We are constantly researching the best and most effective anti-aging skin care ingredients for our products. Although we can’t stop the aging process, there is plenty we can do to keep our faces fresh and our complexions glowing with youthfulness regardless of the date on our driver’s license. As time goes on and we move from decade to decade, our skin inevitably changes. The following tips will help keep (or obtain) amazing looking skin.
Anti-Aging Skin Care In Our 20s
You may not be worrying about wrinkles, sun spots or fine lines just yet, but this is the time to start making sure that they don’t appear later on. In our 20s, free radicals are our worst enemy. Late-night partying, drinking, smoking, sleep deprivation and hectic schedules do a lot of damage to our skin, and it is crucial that we protect it and repair it as needed. Using sunscreen is a must (no excuses, ladies!), and so is using a daily moisturizer with an SPF of at least 15 during the winter and 30 during the summer.
Anti-Aging Skin Care In Our 30s
As we age, our skin loses valuable collagen, and it is in our 30s that most of us notice the first wrinkles, fine line and changes in our complexion. Crow’s feet, anyone? Yikes. Skin cells take longer to renew, and experts agree that women in their 30s need to exfoliate regularly, as well as incorporate collagen into their daily routines. Collagen serums and anti-aging creams are the perfect skin care solution to layer on before bed. Easy, peasy.
Anti-Aging Skin Care In Our 40s
In our 40s, we start to notice the first signs of age and pigmentation spots. Skin’s flexibility and strength also change, so it is important to have an effective skin care routine. Most changes are due to a lack of estrogen, which is very common when it comes to hormonal changes at this age. Also, hyaluronic acid helps to soften the skin, which may become thinner than usual. A skin care regimen is important day and night. Incorporate an anti-aging product with retinol. Research and beautiful-faced women both concur that retinol is key to keeping wrinkles and fine lines away. Just be sure to use retinol at night, as it can make your skin extra sensitive when you go out in the sun.
Anti-Aging Skin Care In Our 50s
It is up to each of us to hydrate and nurture our skin with appropriate anti aging creams in order to keep it feeling silky soft and looking youthful. In our 50s, hormonal changes can leave the skin dry. Fortunately, ingredients like glycerine and ceramides are highly recommended to hydrate and rejuvenate youthful looking skin. Skin cells take longer to renew, and our skin is more prone to conditions, such as adult acne or Rosacea. Thus, many skin care professionals recommend switching to a gentler cleanser and using anti-aging products with soy or tea extracts to reduce the damaging effects.
A skin care routine can be rewarding if done properly. The most important part of your anti-aging skin care routine is simply sticking with it. Routine, routine, routine. Plus, using great products are key. Creams and serums with high quality ingredients can make a world of difference in brightening and youthifying (yes, we made that word up!) your skin, and keeping it looking and feeling smooth, youthful and radiant.
