Do the needs of your skin change as you age? Will what you did in your twenties work in your forties, let alone your sixties? The answer, in short, is that it depends. It depends on what you were doing in your twenties, what you’re doing now, and if your skin has really changed at all as you’ve gotten older. Though this might seem like a lot of variables, there are some simple things you can do and pay attention to in order to know if you need to adjust your anti aging skincare routine as you age.
Chances are that in your early twenties you were not as diligent and strategic about taking care of your skin. If this is the case, then you will probably be trying to make up for some of the damage and lack of care from your earlier years, which means that your anti aging skincare routine will definitely be different. Look for potent and soothing products with highly restorative ingredients like vitamin C, wild crafted Geranium, plant peptides and cold pressed plant lipids like Rosehip seed oil. Not only will they help your skin to repair itself from damage that’s already been done, they will also help prevent further premature aging in the future.
You should also pay attention to any obvious changes in your skin. For example, does it seem more dry/thirsty than it used to be? Or perhaps you’ve noticed that the skin around your eyes has gotten thinner and more sensitive? Little changes like this will affect what changes you make in your own anti aging skincare regimen. Adjust accordingly, and always with the best quality products and ingredients you can find.
If you did take care of your skin in your younger years, then you are probably reaping the benefits now! Keep it up and continue to pay attention to your skin as you age. Its needs may change, or things could stay the same. Don’t be afraid to try new things but also trust old favorites that have continued to deliver results again and again and again.
No matter your age, your skin can be healthy, vibrant, smooth and supple. It’s never too late to adopt an anti aging regimen that supports the natural integrity and beauty that your biology is inherently programmed with. Pay attention, adapt when necessary, and reap the benefits of your strategic action and care.
