Beauty At Every Age




50s

In your 50s, skin becomes drier leading to less acne but increased dullness. Age spots and skin tags tend to become more prominent, and changes in collagen and elastin levels increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Try this Intensive Deep Wrinkle Treatment to diminish fine lines, revealing younger looking skin. Beyond your 50s, you can expect the fine lines and wrinkles you had in your 50s to become more dramatic, especially if you smoked or spent excess time in the sun.Read More >

20s

For most people, the twenties are a busy and active time, full of days in the sun and plenty of exposure to the elements. Though aging may not yet be a concern for most, there are steps that can be taken to prevent premature aging. Of course, including a daily moisturizer with SPF is key in preventing the damage that UV rays can cause. The skin of someone in their twenties tends to be on the oilier side, leaning towards an oilier t-zone and hairline—especially the nose.Read More >

30s

In your thirties, skin loses a lot of the oiliness it had during your twenties, so make sure to moisturize regularly to help return the natural glow to your skin. Expression lines may become more etched, especially around the forehead, eyes, and lips, though these signs of aging may be mitigated by wearing sunglasses outside and not smoking.Read More >

40s

Dramatic changes start to happen to your skin in your 40s, especially when it comes to elasticity. You may find your skin has become drier, and has lost some of the elasticity from your twenties and thirties—especially around the jaw, the eyes, and the ears. The fine lines you began to see in your thirties may have become deeper around the expression areas (eyes, mouth, and forehead). In many cases, sun exposure has led to more freckles, discoloration, and uneven skin tone.Read More >

The multilayered approach to beauty

Having the right skin care products is the first step to healthy skin. But if you’re applying them incorrectly, you may be losing a lot of potential benefit those products have to offer. The best way is to take a multilayered approach by “weight.” Once your skin has been washed, reach for the lightest product first—this will be the one that seems to be more water-like (as opposed to the heaviest lotions, which are more paste-like).Read More >

Update your sunscreen

The shelf life of your average sunscreen is about 3 years, but it may be less for certain organic sunscreens. Make sure you’re using one that has been stored properly, to get the most protection. And similarly to moisturizers, thick sunscreens might clog pores, so consider a lighter aerosol or powdered sunscreen when heading outside.Read More >

Fake it, don’t bake it

Having a tan is a summer must-have for many women; but for those who value their skin, sun exposure is not. The best bottled glows come to slowly, however. By using a gradual bronzer (like Jergen’s Natural Glow moisturizer or No7’s Naturally Sunkissed), you can build up golden, streak-free color that looks entirely natural. For optimal results, be sure to exfoliate before applying.Read More >
