Choosing the Best Skincare Routine for Your Age

These days, everyone seems to be talking about their skincare routines – and it’s no wonder why! Your skincare routine can affect the long-term health and appearance of your skin. 

While you likely don’t need a 12-step skincare routine to reach your beauty goals, it’s important to consider your age while selecting skincare products. The skin requires different ingredients in different stages of life, so why not build a routine that reflects your age?

Skincare in Your 20s

In your 20s, no matter where the day (and night) take you, make sure to cleanse your skin twice daily. Debris, irritants, and impurities can accumulate on your skin throughout the day. If they sit on your skin at night, you may find yourself with clogged pores and a dull skin texture. 

Additionally, you can do your future self a favor by applying sunscreen consistently in your 20s. Rain or shine, the sun’s damaging UV rays can reach your skin and cause lasting damage. This damage may lead to premature skin aging and skin cancer. So, don’t forget sunscreen as part of your daily skincare routine in your 20s.  

Skincare in Your 30s

Just like in your 20s, your skincare routine in your 30s should involve regular cleansing and diligent sunscreen application. However, in this stage of life, you’ll likely start to notice visible signs of aging. Consider adding a retinol product to your nightly routine to boost collagen levels, along with a vitamin C serum for your morning routine to fight free radical damage. 

Skincare in Your 40s and Beyond

In your 40s and beyond, you’ll want to keep up with the sunscreen, retinol, and vitamin C from your 30s. However, the skin loses moisture with age, in part due to diminished natural oils. So, you may need a richer, more nourishing moisturizer later in life to help lock hydration into the skin.
