Skin care is a delicate process and should be handled wisely, especially as you age. Your buoyant, supple skin in your 20’s will have different needs compared to your thin, fragile skin of your 70’s. In each era of your life, your skin will need to be handled appropriately, otherwise it will lead to irritation, breakouts or damage. Your skin is the first thing people see when they look at you so maintaining a healthy, vibrant look throughout every age of your life is important. A consultation with Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology will determine your skin type as we discuss the needs of your skin type specific to your age group. As your skin ages, you will need to take precautions to protect your skin throughout your life.
Your teenage years
Up until this stage of life, you might have been oblivious to skin care. But then one day as your hormones surge, breakouts become a new trial in your life and your skin becomes more sensitive to external sources. Combating that stubborn teenage acne is simple with our Skin+Metrics face cleansing and hydrating system. It cleans out your pores and will restore your confidence again.
During your 20’s, you may still experience the occasional breakout, but your hormones are regulating and these breakouts may happen less often. For some, acne continues to plague them so continuing on with your trusted skincare routine is essential. Using skincare products that are gentle without causing irritation will keep your skin from looking blotchy. Remember, how you care for your skin in your 20’s will add to your skin’s health in your later years.
In this time frame of your life, you might regret not appreciating the youthful face of your 20’s more. During this phase, you will notice fine lines appear around your eyes and maybe even a few more in your forehead or around your mouth. Breakouts might become less frequent, but you may notice hyperpigmentations, sun spots and dark circles under your eyes. Using a toner to firm your skin and keep your pores clean can do wonders. Do not forget to implement an exfoliation and sunscreen regimen that will keep your skin supple. Filling your diet with foods full of antioxidants will reflect through your skin so avoid the overly processed foods. The Skin+Metrics Dermalux is a perfect solution to protecting yourself from those damaging and harmful UV rays.
By your 40’s, the age signs on your skin become a big deal because they are more prominent. To hide the signs of age, you may need a more aggressive approach with the help of Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology. Retinol, for instance, is a powerful tool to fight against the signs of aging. It is a form of vitamin A, that once absorbed into the skin, spurs collagen production, diminishing wrinkles and giving a vibrancy to your face.
