A Guide to Skincare, Preventative Treatments, and Products to Use by Age

Just like how we change and evolve over time, so should our skincare regimen.  

We were all born with delicate, soft, and baby smooth skin. But with age comes all sorts of skin problems: dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, sagginess, age spots, and so much more. What can we do to keep our skin looking youthful? 

That’s where the importance of using the right preventative treatments and anti-aging solutions at the right age comes in. Let’s dive into the ideal skincare regimen for people in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s. 

20 to 29 Years Old 

When you’re in your early 20s, your skin can break out from time to time. That’s because your hormones still have the tendency to fluctuate like when you were a teenager.

But it is at this age when collagen production is at its prime. Your skin would be at its plumpest and brightest. When you reach your mid-20s, your turnover of skin cells begins to slow down and collagen mass begins to deplete by one percent each year.

Skincare Tips:

  • Clean your face regularly. However, make sure you’re using the right cleanser for your skin type. Avoid using products with harsh ingredients because they can dry out your skin.
  • Use a toner with alpha hydroxy acids and a moisturizer that has hyaluronic acid.
  • Sun exposure contributes to collagen breakdown and speeds up skin aging, so wear sunscreen every day. Don’t reserve it just for beach trips!

30 to 39 Years Old 

Fine lines start to become more prominent. You may also experience a loss of volume in your cheeks and around the lips and eyes because of collagen loss. Dullness will also start creeping into your skin tone.

Skincare Tips:

  • Now is the time to fine-tune your skincare routine by adding products with hydrating ingredients. You should also start using antioxidant serums to address any pigmentation and free radical damage. 
  • Boost cell turnover to keep your skin bright by exfoliating. Whatever product you use, don’t forget about your neck!
  • Always remember to get enough sleep. 

Preventative Treatments:

  • Eating more fruits and vegetables, taking supplements, and exercising regularly are natural ways to keep your face looking bright.
  • Laser therapy can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.

40 to 49 Years Old 

You will experience hormonal changes at this stage. Estrogen levels fall and as a result, your skin will look laxer. If you’ve had sun exposure in the past that didn’t show any consequences, it will generally start to become more visible at this stage—hyperpigmentation, dryness of the skin, deeper wrinkles, redness because of broken capillaries, and more.

Skincare Tips:

  • Add retinol to the skincare products you’re using. This will help stimulate collagen production, soften wrinkles, and retexturize the skin.
  • Choose a toner with ingredients that will help replenish lost moisture.
  • Skincare products with peptides can also help with skin elasticity, sagging skin, dullness, and fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Metabolism tends to slow down, and the body retains less water—so make sure to stay hydrated.

Preventative Treatments:

  • Revamping your skincare routine will definitely help, but if you want faster results, consider getting Botox. It can relax facial muscles and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Filler injections can replace volume loss.
  • Microneedling can stimulate cell turnover. 
  • Give your skin a glow-up through chemical resurfacing.

50 Years Old and Beyond 

Hormonal shifts during menopause can cause major changes to your skin. It may become very dry, crepey, thinner, and looser than ever before. You may also notice a spike in the appearance of skin tags.

Skincare Tips:

  • Consider adding facial oil and night cream to your skincare routine to help rehydrate your skin.
  • Prescription retinoids can help reduce the depth of your wrinkles.
  • Stop exfoliating so as not to aggravate the dryness and thinness of your skin. 
  • Switch to non-foaming cleansers because they are less stripping of the skin’s natural moisture.
  • Avoid products with fragrance to prevent irritation.
