Important Skincare Ingredients You Should Use…According to Your Age

I receive so many questions from clients, friends, and social media asking me what ingredients to incorporate into their skincare routine. The age range of the ladies (and men) who ask me questions are anywhere from 20-70 years old.


So, I decided to create a beauty segment offering my professional advice and I break it down according to what age you are.


20’s The biggest issue tends to be battling breakouts. Opt for an oil-free, gel-based cleanser with salicylic acid.  It is important to start using a light moisturizer and an SPF to protect your skin.


30’s It’s really important to use a daytime moisturize, eye cream, and night cream and SPF. Fine lines and wrinkles appear, and skin tone becomes more uneven. Products that incorporate retinol can help in those areas. Also, stick to a gentle cleanser to offset any irritating effects from the anti-aging ingredients you may be using. 


40’sWrinkles and age spots have likely set in. Peptide-packed moisturizers are the bomb! Peptides even out pigment and increase collagen.
Serums that contain Vitamin C are a must! Serums have a smaller molecular structure and absorb deeper into the skin’s surface layers. Vitamin C is a potent anti-oxidant as well as protects your skin and reverses skin from sun damage and boost collagen production! A must!


In addition, be sure to exfoliate 1-2 days a week to speed up the exfoliation process that slows down as we age. By speeding up the exfoliation process, your skin will naturally produce more collagen. Be sure to use GENTLE exfoliators! Otherwise, you can damage your skin.


During this decade, our skin starts to lose some of its tone and texture, so it important to use a cleanser with low concentrations of exfoliating alpha or beta hydroxy acids. 
Don’t forget to use an SPF!


50’s and upContinue with the same ingredients I suggest for those in their 40s and add a few extras…


Hormonal changes can lead to dehydrated skin. Counteract these effects by using glycolic acid; it revs up cell turnover, so skin stays smooth.  Be sure to incorporate higher levels of retinol in your skincare products as well as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and always use sunscreen!
