Skincare is one of those things that many of us think about after we should have already started a skincare regimen. Luckily, it’s never too late to start – but starting early is key in preventing future problems. Our body produces collagen and elastin, two proteins that give our skin its structure and assist in keeping our skin firm and youthful-looking. However, as we age, our skin changes, and in return, our skincare needs will change as well.
Here are some anti-aging elements to add to your skincare routine as you get older.
Starting as early as your teens & the 20s:
Sun Protection. This should be started as early as your teens. Sunscreen is vital in blocking out UV rays and preventing your skin from damage against the sun’s harmful rays. As well, UVA rays found in your office lighting, can damage collagen and break down your skins’ elastin. Wearing sunscreen on a daily basis, whether you’re outside or not, makes sense.
Products with antioxidants, such as our Vitamin C line, help to protect against environmental factors such as pollution. These antioxidants neutralize free radicals and assist to slow the aging process. Our Vitamin C line has nourishing benefits to protect skin cells, promote collagen production, encourage an anti-inflammatory response in your skin, reduce hyperpigmentation, and give your skin the strength and ability to repair itself.
Things to consider adding in your 30s:
SkinTech’s Moisture Seal and other serums are helpful by your 30s as your skin slowly starts to lose its ability to retain moisture. Our Moisture Seal improves the skin’s natural barrier to seal in moisture and contains a Vitamin C derivative which is both an antioxidant and a collagen stimulator. Another thing to include in your skincare routine is an exfoliant. Cell renewal is encouraged by removing the dead skin cells with regular exfoliation.
Things to consider adding in your 40s & beyond:
Now is the time to focus on retaining moisture and repairing past damage. Products formulated with stem cells, such as some products in our Enlighten Line, will help to firm and repair your skin’s protein structures, slow the aging process, and eliminate age spots and fine lines associated with aging. Our Enlighten Line also work to brighten and improve your overall complexion and even out skin tone.
