We’re almost in 2018 and this is the time to consider our New Year’s resolutions to start healthier habits, leave some parts of the past behind and become the best version of ourselves. When you write your list, do you usually think about your skin? Our skin is our most extended organ and it is always exposed to different agents. We have to treat it and protect it properly, as we only have one – once destroyed it is a big task to recover!

It is never too early to start with anti-ageing solutions, every age has its own specifics and requires various treatments. We wrote a little guide on what to do in in order to have a flawless skin in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond.

Anti-ageing solutions in your 20s: time for prevention

Even if you feel like you’re too young, when you’re in your 20s it’s time for you to start thinking of the changes that happen in your skin in order to prevent damages.

What happens with your skin?

  • Your skin takes around 14-16 days to regenerate itself.
  • You might start seeing fine lines around your eyes or forehead. This is due to how much you use your expression muscles.
  • You might still experience acne breakouts and blemishes, especially around yourperiod. The testosterone production is higher in those days, making your skin oilier.

What you can do at home

Wash your skin twice daily, always include toner and moisturizer in your routine. Preventing wrinkles and pigmentation requires applying a SPF 30 or higher every morning. With acne breakouts, use zinc oxide formulas to make sure your pores are not clogged.

skin peelWhat to do in your 30s: enhance your collagen production

When you’re in your thirties, it’s time for you to focus on stimulation of your collagen and elastin to keep your skin firm and plump. Since your oestrogen levels start sinking, your collagen production decreases. This is when your skin begins to break down collagen faster than making it.

What happens with your skin?

  • The skin regeneration process takes around 28-32 days.
  • Some wrinkles might show up, especially expression lines on your forehead and around the eyes.
  • You’ll notice how the moisture level of your skin is decreasing and you might even experience dryness around your mouth.

What you can do at home

Get a proper anti-ageing regimen, especially for night time. Try to use products containing retinol. It is a derivative from Vitamin A and it increases collagen production making the skin thicker and smoother. Don’t’ forget good eating habits such as consuming a lot of antioxidants and to exercise. A flawless young skin is a reflection of a healthy body.

Once the salon analyses your skin, we will determine exactly what procedures to take. There are various options from Micro-dermabrasion, Skin Needling or IPL to begin resurfacing damaged skin from your youth. One can start using wrinkle injections, especially on the lines that are still visible when your face is not moving and dermal fillers around the mouth area.

Skincare in your 40s: it’s all about retinoids

This is the decade when gravity starts playing a role too, together with your hormone production. Time to seriously focus on anti-ageing and make the difference!

What happens with your skin?

  • Oestrogen production plummets, causing a loss in firmness, collagen and moisture, making your skin thinner.
  • Free radicals start to visibly damage your complexion, especially if you don’t consume enough anti-oxidants and if you haven’t before.
  • You’ll notice that your wrinkles, capillaries, age spots and blood vessels are more visible and appear at a much quicker rate.

What you can do at home

Your anti-ageing regimen should include: cleanser, moisturizer, serum, eye-cream and daily SPF on your face and neck. Choose products that contain retinol, you’ll never get enough of it! It will help to make your skin firmer, reduce your wrinkles and strengthen your blood vessels.

Exfoliate at least once a week with a gentle exfoliater and then follow with a hydration mask. Your lifestyle has a great impact on your appearance, so eat healthy and reduce sugar consumption, stay hydrated, sleep enough and exercise.

Wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are good, but you can also consider dermabrasion, skin peels and dermal-needling to rejuvenate and boost your collagen induction, creating a more youthful appearance.

Menopause usually happens at the beginning of this decade. Oestrogen sinks dramatically, making place for testosterone as your prevalent hormone.

What happens with your skin?

  • Your facial tissues are losing volume. This is especially visible in between the middle of your cheek to your nose. This is because you’ll have lost one third of your collagen in the first 5 years of menopause.
  • The signs of ageing will appear also on your neck, where you might experience turkey neck.
  • Overall, you’ll notice a loss of firmness in your skin, deeper lines, stretched, open pores and more age spots.

What you can do at home

The way you treat your skin can make the difference. It’s important to have solid products and focus on moisturizing because of the loss of the natural hyaluronic acid production from oestrogen, which will make your skin drier.
Wash daily although try to avoid water that is too hot, also when you shower. It will prevent you from further endangering the moisture levels of your skin.

Use products with hyaluronic acid and, of course, retinol. Add a vitamin C serum and an SPF every morning to make sure you have done everything to stimulate collagen production.
