Discover The True Secrets To Beautiful Facial Skin
No matter how old you are, or what stage of your life you are at, skincare is something that we should all be serious about. Our skin care needs change as our age bracket changes, meaning that in order to keep our skin as youthful and beautiful as possible, our skin care products that we use should also change in order to best serve what our skin needs at any given point in our life.
When we are young adults (anything up to mid to late 30's), our skin is quite firm. This is due to the presence of elastin and collagen. Most people take their lovely and sometimes glowing skin for granted, and don't usually give much thought to it. This is then apparent when, as the years tick on, the firm skin gradually becomes not so firm. The true secrets to beautiful facial skin is to look after it and care for it by using appropriate products, products that provide nutrients and protection such as a sunscreen. This should be done as a daily routine.
Not applying sunscreen daily is one of the bigger mistakes women in their 20's and 30's make. A carefully chosen sunscreen providing protection from both UVA and UVB rays should be selected. Additionally the sunscreen you choose should be SPF 15 or higher. The skin just under the eye is an extremely sensitive area, so as well as applying a really good undereye creme, sunglasses containing at least 98% protection should be worn regularly.
Acne at this point in your life can create some problems. There can be lots of reasons for acne problems, however there are some simple rules that if you follow, will greatly reduce your odds of suffering with adult acne, or even reduce the severity of it. At the end of each day, makeup should be removed using a good cleanser - one containing no alcohol derived ingredients which can be drying. This should be followed up with a rich night cream to nourish your skin overnight while you sleep. Exfoliating approximately twice per week helps to remove dead skin cells.
For people over the age of 30, a good anti wrinkle cream can be of great benefit, minimising what starts out as tiny little wrinkles and fine lines. Physical health and fitness also contributes towards beautiful facial skin.
Once you reach your 40's, it can be quite obvious as to whether you have looked after you skin in your "younger days". Damage caused by the sun can become quite apparent, as does the effects gravity has had on your skin for the past 40 odd years. Facial skin loses it's elasticity, and age spots and other skin problems can arise. However there are creams available for people specifically in this age group which target things such as age spots, blotchiness, rosacea, fine lines and even adult acne. Studies show that regular use of the correct cream will improve the condition of the skin.
Lots of us in our younger days were either unaware of the damage the sun was doing to our beautiful young skin at the time, or chose to completely ignore it. The effects caused by this which quite often become apparent when we reach our 40's are seeing lots of medical treatments called for by way of cosmetic surgery, microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Some treatments can help induce the production of collagen which helps to put back some of the elasticity lost from the skin. Other products penetrate deeper into the skin beneath the surface, which can then heal damage in all skin layers. A modern and trendy alternative these days are Botox and the like, which are directly injected into the skin to help to give a tightening effect to the skin.
Once we hit the age of 50, changes can occur as a result of hormonal changes. These changes can be anything from adult acne, to new hair growth. Lines become more apparent and the skin becomes quite loose. There are medical treatments available to help counteract these problems, and vitamin C can do wonders at this age for quite a number of age related skin problems.
Make-up at this age should be kept to a minimum, and alternative used which are kinder to the skin. Make-up at this age can actually make 50 years old appear closer to 60, simply because of the make-up.
Once past this age, simply choosing age-relevant products is the best thing you can do for your skin. Choose products that produce elastin which can help with the increasing wrinkles. There are lots of great products which contain natural ingredients, and using a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily is an absolute must.
Cosmetics and make-up should be used sparingly once over the age of 60. All cosmetics you purchase should be bought for the nourishing ingredients they contain which your skin will love.
