Skin Care For The Ages- 20's

The question I often hear is, "I am this age, what should my skin care regimen be?" For the next few weeks we are going to discuss skin care for the ages 20's, 30's, 40's & 50's, and 60's & 70's. So Lets begin with the 20's.

Despite how you may look or feel the skin begins aging at 23 years old. Yes you heard me right, 23! In your twenties its all about prevention and dealing with the occasional break out for some. In the 20's the skin is in its best shape there is a lot of collagen and elastin which keeps the skin looking firm. Skin tone is even and smooth. The oil and moisture in the skin is balanced however, many people in this age group will experience acne at some point (50.9 percent of women and 42.5 percent of men reported experiencing acne in their 20's). Despite the occasional break out the skin is overall very healthy. The key is to get into a skin care routine that maintains, preserves, PROTECTS, and nourishes skin while balancing out oiliness and the occasional break out.

1 Cleanse Skin 2x's Daily (for those that wear makeup might need to double cleanse at night 1st cleanse gets rid of make up and 2nd cleanse gets deep into pores to clean out excess oil and impurities.

2 Tone 2x's Per Day (after cleansing the skins pH has been changed toner helps to balance out the skin so it does not get too dry or oily)

3 PROTECT (After Cleansing and toning it is important to moisturize and protect the skin with an SPF 30) This step is very important beacuase 90% of skin aging is due to the sun, free radicals, and pollutants. If you want to avoid those pesky age spots that haunt many when they are older begin this important step daily.

4 At Night Follow steps 1 and 2 and use a Serum to replenish the skin as well as spot treat any blemishes.

5 Deep Cleansing facials on a monthly basis can help to clean skin and keep it clear while preventing skin aging.
