Your Skin During 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s


The skin encounters drastic changes from 20’s to the 50’s. But if we understand these patterns then we can probably maintain the beauty and glow of our skin irrespective of age.

Following are some tips to handle the skin in during different decades of life:

If You Are in 20’s:
This is the age when you need to preserve and protect your skin. Generally, skin issues occur in this age due to carefree eating and drinking habits. Your skin can show some fine lines in the second half of 20s.


If You Are in 30’s:
30s skin is masked by discoloration and fine lines. The skin loses its power to exfoliate after every 14 days as in 20s and exfoliates only after 35 days.

If you Are in 40’s:
40s is marked by lines between eyebrows, eyes and mouth that have got more permanent now. The skin feels more dried out because of the reduced estrogen levels.

If You Are in 50’s:
Probably by now the muscles, fats, collagen and bone tissues have started shrinking which results into change in skin tone. The skin become unmanageably dry as creams and lotions fail to provide the much needed moisture. Age spots and enlarged pores are some of the common signs.



Proven ways to look even better:
Address your one or two top concerns. "I see a lot of women in their forties getting overwhelmed by all the choices—the creams, peels, injections, etc.—and spending a lot of money on the wrong things," says Dr. Marmur. "There's a freak-out factor of feeling like they need to fix every perceived flaw when they'd benefit more by focusing on whatever their biggest issue is: sun damage, dullness, dryness." If ever there was a time to book a consultation with a dermatologist, this is it.

Switch up your anti-aging cream. In general, you can stick with the same types of products you used during your thirties—cleanser, wrinkle-fighting moisturizer, night cream, eye cream and exfoliator. But reconsider the formulas; skin's typically drier (and less glowy) due to hormonal shifts and a decrease in oil. "So first of all, think moisturizing," says Dr. Luftman. Experts are fans of treatments with soy (it won't dry you out and is said to boost collagen production and improve skin luster). Biopeptides in products can also help by stimulating cell production, sparing skin from dullness. Opt for a serum rather than a cream—serums sink into the skin more quickly to do their thing.

Downsize your pores. Doing an at-home microdermabrasion treatment once a month or so can help spur collagen growth and clear out pores; the cleaner they are, the smaller those suckers look.

Use a primer over your moisturizer. "It smooths out the skin so makeup doesn't sink into any little crevices and emphasize them," says Dr. Marmur.
Do stuff that blisses you out. Research (an inarguable lot of it, actually) shows that happy look on your face is what makes you most attractive.
