Skin Care By Age: Best Skincare Products For Every Age

We’re breaking down skin care by age! Let’s take a look at the different skin challenges of every life stage and the best products to address them. 

 

Skincare In Your Teens

 

Acne and oil. Two words many teenagers know well! 

A range of products can clear breakouts - but be careful. Many work effectively simply because they’re so strong. Sometimes, too strong. They may clear acne initially but leave the skin stripped, sensitised, and irritated. This can lead to other skin issues - and even more breakouts. 

Depending on the type of acne you have, a gentler choice for skin are cleansers with lower doses of active acne-fighting ingredients. These won’t strip the skin but still effectively kill acne forming bacteria. 

The best skincare for teens is a simple regime that will balance and regulate oil flow, whilst providing anti-bacterial clearing ingredients, as well as anti-inflammatories to reduce redness and inflammation.

Common skin concerns in your teens

  • Congestion 
  • Excessive oil
  • Acne - from mild, moderate to severe

Skincare in your 20s

 

Your 20s is the decade to commit to a consistent skincare regimen and form habits your future self will thank you for. The most important habit? Applying SPF30 every day.

This habit alone will make a dramatic difference in the way your skin ages over the years.

Starting and continuing an effective cleansing routine is key too. If you used a strong cleanser to target acne in your teens, it won’t be a good fit for skin in your 20s.

Switch to a gentler cleanser which won’t strip the skin of the oil it needs to stay healthy. Over cleansing compromises the skin barrier which leaves it susceptible to other skin concerns, including more breakouts!

Common skin concerns in your 20s 

  • Acne you experienced as a teen may persist
  • Congestion 
  • Collagen production begins to decrease in your late 20s
  • Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation from teen acne

Skincare in your 30s

 

Ageing concerns become more of... well, a concern in your 30s!

Collagen and elastin production begins to slow down and the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles to creep in.

In the later stages of your 30s, you may begin to notice more hyperpigmentation - especially if you were a sun bunny (without SPF!) in your 20s. 

Your skin will benefit from adding active ingredients to your routine to target fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and dullness. 

This is the time to get serious about taking an anti-ageing approach to your routine - if you haven’t already. What you do for your skin in your 30s can pay off decades later.

Common skin concerns in your 30s

  • Fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Dullness 
  • Dehydration

Skincare in your 40s

 

Focus on hydration and the right type of exfoliation for healthy looking skin in your 40s. 

Like the production collagen and elastin, your skin’s natural exfoliation cycle is slowing down too. That means it’s taking longer for new, fresh skin cells to be produced and the old, dry cells remain on the surface for longer. 

The result? Skin appears rough in texture, dull and pores and fine lines are increasingly accentuated. 

Using the right exfoliation method (with the right frequency) to remove the dead cells can leave skin looking brighter and fresher instantly. It can also help minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Dehydration is another skin concern you’ll find yourself dealing with as skin matures. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies and plays a key role in skin hydration. With age, the amount of hyaluronic acid produced declines and it’s harder for the skin to hold onto moisture - leaving it drier and rougher. 

You can also boost sluggish collagen production with peptides and Vitamin A.

Common skin concerns in your 40s

  • Loss of firmness
  • Rough, dull skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles become more pronounced
  • Dehydration
  • Broken capillaries and hyperpigmentation result in uneven skin tone

Skincare in your 50s and beyond

 

The production of collagen and elastin really drops off in your 50s as the hormonal changes of menopause kick in. 

These changes also affect the pH level of your skin barrier which makes it increasingly harder for skin to retain moisture. You may find skin is more easily damaged and less resilient.

Lines and wrinkles become more prominent - especially around the eye, mouth, and neck area. 

Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturised will help strengthen your skin barrier and smooth the look of lines and wrinkles. 

Exfoliation is still important to keep skin looking fresh but the method you use and frequency may need to be adjusted - skin is more sensitive than it once was. 

Indulge your skin with deeply nourishing treatments and active ingredients like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid that target mature skin concerns.

Common skin concerns in your 50s

  • Crepey and sagging skin including neck and jawline
  • Skin is less resilient and more easily damaged
  • Extreme dryness and dehydration
  • Age spots
  • Dullness
  • Deeper lines and wrinkles
