Skin Care Through The Years

 

“The skin has a tremendous capacity for self-regeneration if properly cared for and it’s never too late to start.”    ~ Shahnaz Husain


The skin that has been properly cared for is free from problems and stays youthful for a longer time. The skin care routine should be selected according to both age and skin type. The body goes through phases of growth and hormonal changes that influence the skin.

Teenage:

Teenage is a time of hormonal activity, leading to oily skin and problems associated with it, like blackheads, spots, pimples and acne. Follow an appropriate cleansing routine to keep the pores from getting clogged. Seek professional help in good time. Acne, if controlled in good time, prevents scars.

Twenties:

The skin starts settling down and one gets an indication of the skin type. Select a skin care routine accordingly. You should cleanse, tone and moisturize the skin morning and night. Remove all make-up. Protect the skin with sunscreen. Follow a healthy lifestyle.

Thirties:

Have regular Salon facials to cleanse and tone the skin. For dry skin, increase moisturizing treatments. Pay attention to the area around eyes, using specialized products. Since these are child bearing years, seek professional help for problems like “chloasma” (dark patches) and stretch marks. Protect the skin from sun-exposure.

Forties:

Protection of the skin is even more important as one grows older. Apply sunscreen before going out in the sun. Regular exfoliation with masks or scrubs helps to improve the process of cell renewal and preserve youthful qualities of the skin. Use under-eye creams and lotions daily. Weekly salon facials help to delay visible ageing signs.

Fifties:

Daily nourishment with a light massage will keep the skin soft and smooth. Pay more attention to the neck area and area around eyes, which tend to age faster. Adopt intensive moisturizing procedures and use sun block with higher SPF. Plant Stem Cell products help to rejuvenate the skin.
