Every year, as you age, your skin does the same. Although, a lot of you guys are gonna tell me, that, oh my god, your skin is fine. Your skin looks amazing. You don’t look your age. Let me tell you, there has been a lot of work put into the skin. Today’s blog post is all about sharing those secrets with you.
First of all, let’s talk about skin. I’ve asked all people, what do you use on your skin there? They said to me, “soap, nothing, water”. I need to tell you some of the reasons, why you definitely need to look after your skin. Because it will repay you in the future. Then, I’m gonna give you five main things, that you should concentrate on in your 20s. when it comes to skincare.
UV kills your skin
Number one is UV. UV is the number one killer not only for your skin, your health in aging. It is one thing, that your skin is going to take the longest to come back from UV. A, and B are both rays, that you can’t see. They penetrate deeper into your skin. It kills the skin cells, as well as, damages a lot of the production of collagen, elastin. All those things, that help make your skin plump and beautiful. It’s going to destroy that. It doesn’t matter, where you’re going. Definitely 100% will get you the exposure. So, make sure, you’re putting on sunscreen.
Number two is dry or unwashed dry skin. Moisturizing skin is the number one most important thing. What I mentioned, moisturizing that includes the whole face, which includes the eye area. The eye area is the only place in your whole face, that does not have any oil glands. So, it is not going to produce its own moisture. It is where you show signs of aging. First, you need to provide external moisture. Make sure, that area is hydrated. So, you’re preventing premature aging. which is what’s happening with a lot of people, who don’t use eye cream.
Lifestyle is a key
Number three is a lifestyle. I’ve talked about this before everything starts from within. So, you need to be eating right. You need to be sleeping well. From 11:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., is when your body is in rejuvenation mode. Your livers a detoxing, and your stomach is winding down. Your heart rate drops. Then your skin is in rejuvenation mode. It’s going to replenish itself. That’s why the next morning when you wake up, your skin is always looking a bit better or brighter.
Number four is free radicals. You’re like what’s free basically. Those things are terrible. It’s in the air. It’s pollution. It’s things that, you know, come from factories and cars, and just dust. All that stuff is terrible for your skin. We can’t do anything about that. Because that’s just a society in the world that we live in today. The only thing we can do is try to protect our skin from it. Putting in all the ingredients that can help battle these free radicals at night, using vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid. Those are things that are going to help your skin fight those free radicals. Last but not least is taking care of the collagen and elastin production in your body.
Skin in your 30s
About 24 or 25 everything in our body starts to slow down. That’s when you need a little bit more help from you personally to help boost your skin’s production. Doing things, such as facial massages, to help stimulate the blood circulation in the skin. So, your skin can better absorb these products and produce its own collagen and elastin fibers. So, I’m just gonna get Felicia to talk to you, guys, about the skincare routine, that you should be having in your 20s.
Alright, skincare in your 20s. All you want to do is really find out what skin type you have. So, you know which products you’re gonna spend your pretty pennies on. Because in your Tonys, as Mia said, we are lucky to have that natural collagen production. We can bounce back from acne scars. Tomorrow you would just sleep it off. So, first off is a cleanser upgrade your soupy cleanser. If you’re still using a bar of soap, that ain’t good enough. You find a cleanser, that works with your skin tone, whether it’s oily or dry. Find out what skin you have and then get a cleanser that’s like an adult cleanser.
If you’re drying, you want to make sure the cleanser is really nourishing skin and not stripping away too many oils. So, that’s the biggest thing to keep in mind. Make sure the cleanser isn’t too dry. If you have acne, find something with a little bit of salicylic acid. That will really help turn down the inflammation and the redness.
Second thing, you might want to double into the realm of micro scrubs. Just means the scrub particles are actually really fine. So, it breaks down the dead skin, that’s sitting on top of your face. It’s a shed, so it reveals fresh babies, but underneath. These scrubs you want to use at least like three to four times a week, depending on how sensitive your skin is. You want to start doubling into more of these gentle renewal products. Microdermabrasion is a way to go. Don’t go for anything that’s too abrasive. We’ve talked about this plenty of times. Then, moving right along, you really want to get serious about moisture people. So, find a moisturizer, that again is well suited for your face.
If you have dry skin, look for hyaluronic acid. That’s going to help like replenish your skin. The number one reason for wrinkles and dull skin is that your skin is not hydrated with moisture. Find something, that’s really suitable for your skin, especially at night. Nighttime is when your skin is soaking everything up. So, just keep in mind whatever it is that you use hydrated skin will prevent you from so many problems, like acne, dryness, and healing. If your skin is well hydrated with the right moisturizer, you will have very minimal problems.
Makeup in your 30s
I think, when you’re in your 30s, you start to show little signs of aging here and there. There just come naturally. Doesn’t matter how well you talk to your skin. You’re still gonna see that little signs. You’re just delaying the aging process. The main thing in the thirties is to upkeep what you’re already doing in your 20s.
I’m adding more ingredients to your skincare. Routines such as retinol are also very good for anti-aging. So, retinol is an ingredient that not only helps to get rid of excess sebum. It actually strips away a lot of the skin to Alette the healthier skin underneath shines through. That’s shown a lot of results in terms of reducing the proving the texture of the skin. So, your skin looks smoother. I personally have used retinol products. I love it, but the only downside to retinol products is that you definitely have to up your UV game. This means that you need 100% sun protection on top the next day. You want to make sure, you’re not undoing all the great work, that you have done with the retinol creams.
There are also anti-aging creams that contain peptides. These are things that help collagen elastin fibers, as well as allow your skin to retain its moisture and firmness. So, using a night cream, we’ll help rejuvenate your skin. Our nighttime is gonna be very important that’s gonna help your skin feel plumper and firmer. Instead of doing like clarifying or purity mask in your 20s, we’ll be doing any aging framing or a lifting mask in your 30s. I feel like, that was the biggest change I’ve had in that shift of time. I find it really great, because my skin is able to take that. I can definitely see a difference in my skin when I switch out my routine.
Last but not least, is age spots. Those are the biggest things I’ve noticed in my 30s. They pop up on the areas, where you’re most exposed to the Sun. For me, it’s along the cheeks and a little bit on the nose. As well, they’re different – freckles because freckles are more normally genetics kind of born with them. Whereas age spots appear later in life. So, after you’re 20, sometimes in your 30s or 40s, even later on. They’re a little bit different – dark spots, which come up from hormones after you had a baby or sometimes some medications can cause is that what are you younger you even. If you don’t put on sunscreen you feel like there’s not much of a difference in your skin. You might burn a little and everything peels off. You’re fine but when you’re getting into your later 30s or even further down the track your skin’s not going to bounce back. As well, it doesn’t have the same amount of collagen, elastin, doesn’t have the same amount of moisture. So, when it gets damaged, it’s gonna show up with age spots. It is melanin. It is going to pop up on the surface of your skin. The only way to reduce melanin is a long whole process of using products, that will help break down the melanin. Then prevent your skin from having extra exposure to the UV rays, which is what is causing the melanin production. In the first place, of course, using products will help break down the melanin but also up keeping your food intake on minerals and vitamins, which will help the body from producing more melanin.
All right, that’s it, guys. I hope you enjoyed this kind of blog post. Just remember at the end of the day, prevention is better than cure. Your skin is the largest organ in your body. So, you’re stuck with it. Make sure you invest and spend time looking after yourself. Also just keep in mind aging is just a part of life. It’s not the end of the world. We all age and it’s about aging gracefully. Aging in the way that you feel comfortable with. So, just stress less.
