BEAUTY BY THE DECADE
The skin is at its prime in your 20s. It is abundant with collagen production and a lots of elastin, making it firm, plump, and lifted. What should be on the forefront of your mind when you are in your 20s is prevention—good skin care habits now mean better and more youthful skin in the future. You can keep your 20-something glow well into your 30’s and 40’s if you start getting serious about your skin now!
Thirty is typically the age when women begin to think about anti-aging treatments and products. The production of collagen starts to decline, leading to thinner skin. This is the time when most men and women begin to notice a fine line starting to set in or dark spots on sun exposed areas. Getting a jump on treating these concerns now is key to long term healthy, beautiful skin.
During your 40s, many men and women begin to notice more prominent changes in their skin texture and tone. Around this time, fine lines may deepen into full-fledged wrinkles, and dark spots and hyper-pigmentation can appear. A great skincare regimen in the clinic and at home can slow down these changes maintaining your youthful appearance.
At around age 50, collagen levels decrease and the face and neck start to show signs of laxity. Loss of tone and sagging skin are typically your biggest issues during your 50s. Additionally, oil production in the skin diminishes creating wrinkled and more dehydrated skin. Putting your health first and taking care of yourself inside and outside should be your priority.
Turning 60 can be life-altering moment, especially if you look in the mirror and notice that suddenly you don’t have that same youthful and rested appearance you had in earlier years. The face begins to sag overall; jowls can appear with the falling of the jawline and cheeks, making you appear tired. However, in the right hands, these concerns can be minimized to restore a natural, more youthful appearance.
