The Best Skin Care Routines to Take You from Your 20s to 50+ The Best Skin Care Routines to Take You from Your 20s to 50+ The Best Skin Care Routines to Take You from Your 20s to 50+

While some basic skin care guidelines may always stay the same, the best skin care routine is not necessarily one-age-fits all. Some products and methods are better suited for different skin stages. Here, take a look at how some skin care routine steps may stay the same throughout the ages, and how some other components may evolve or change throughout your journey.

The best skin care routine to have in your 20s:
You’ll want to establish a basic routine and protect your skin against common signs of skin aging that can be brought on and accentuated by your environment.

  •  Protect your skin with SPF and antioxidants.
    Perhaps you have yet to get in the habit of applying SPF daily, well now is the time. The sun’s harmful UV rays can weaken your skin’s youthful integrity and if over exposed, your skin can wrinkle, sag and form age spots prematurely. Protect your skin by applying a daytime moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 15+ protection daily. For a daytime moisturizer formulated with SPF 30 and antioxidants, consider RevitaLift® Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer. The formula with glycolic acid, vitamin C and pro-retinol helps improve the appearance of wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

  • Cleanse and Moisturize.
    Encourage and maintain clean skin by cleansing in the morning and at night to clear the surface of your skin of dirt, oil and sweat that can build up throughout your day and while you sleep. Also, at night take extra care to remove all of your makeup and consider double cleansing to better ensure a clean complexion. If your skin is on the oiler side, consider sticking to a gel or foaming cleanser and if you are experiencing dryness try a nourishing cream cleanser or micellar water. The best skin care routine should also always include moisturizing after cleansing so that you can replenish your skin with moisture.

  • Exfoliate regularly.
    Dead skin cells can pile up on your skin’s surface and cause it to look dull and feel dry. Dead skin cells can also mix with makeup, sweat and oil, which can clog your pores and cause some breakouts. Help keep the surface of your skin clear by exfoliating regularly. Typically, it is recommended to exfoliate two to three times a week, but some chemical exfoliating methods, like RevitaLift® Bright Reveal Brightening Peels Pads, are gentle enough to use on a daily basis, and will help reduce wrinkles and uneven skin tone. 

The best skin care routine to have in your 30s:
How you take care of your skin in your 30s will set the tone for the years ahead.

  • Defend your skin against the sun’s harmful rays.
    Hopefully, you have already gotten into the habit of applying SPF with broad spectrum protection on a daily basis. A daytime moisturizer, foundation or even facial oil with SPF can help protect your skin against some photo damage. Aside from regular SPF application, you can also seek and create shade whenever possible. Wear a light scarf around your neck, a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses while you are outside for long periods of time. Also pack along a beach umbrella for seaside outings and set your patio chairs under a shady tree.

  • Cleanse smarter.
    The basic first step in the best skin care routine for any age: Cleansing in the morning and at night in addition to removing your makeup before bed is crucial. You may touch your face with dirty hands, sweat and come into contact with certain elements that age your skin – it’s important to wash all of that away. Consider trying a creamy cleanser, like Age Perfect® Nourishing Cream Cleanser, if you have noticed that your skin is experiencing more dryness.

  • Minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
    You may be noticing more fine lines and wrinkles compared to years prior – these are normal signs of skin aging that are likely to develop in your 30s. To address these newer skin concerns, try moisturizing skin care products formulated with Pro-retinol, glycolic acid or LHA.

The best skin care routine to have in your 40s:
As skin ages you may experience more dryness than you ever have before, notice a loss of firmness, dark spots, skin discoloration and deeper-set wrinkles.

  • Hydrate skin and seal in added moisture.
    You might have noticed that your skin is experiencing more dryness compared to when you were in your 20s or 30s. Even if you had always had oily skin, you can start to notice a difference in your 40s.
    This might be due to the fact that your skin’s natural oils will slowly reduce in production as you age. Hydrate skin with skin care products formulated with hyaluronic acid and help seal in added moisture by applying a facial oil after your serum and face cream. Consider using an SPF30 facial oil, like Age Perfect® Hydra-Nutrition – Facial Oil SPF 30, during the day and a light version at night, always before your moisturizer and after your serum.

  • Help firm sagging skin.
    Another common sign of skin aging you might experience in your 40s is a loss of firmness or sagging skin. Help improve the look of sagging skin by trying skin care products that are formulated to help boost skin’s moisture retention so that it appears more full and plump.

  • Address wrinkles.
    Consider addressing wrinkles while your skin’s recuperating properties are at their strongest. Look for night cream or overnight mask like RevitaLift® Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Mask, which is formulated to help firm skin and smooth out the look of wrinkles.

The best skin care routine to have in your 50s:
Keep these skin care tips in mind and always love the look and feel of your mature skin throughout this new stunning era of beauty.

  • Always use SPF protection.
    This basic skin care step will continue to be an important part of your skin care routine. Apply a skin care product or sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF protection to your skin every day and look for and create shade whenever you can. The sun can still damage your skin and accentuate existing signs of skin aging like wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin.

  • Layer your moisturizing efforts.
    It’s likely that your skin is now experiencing regular dryness. It’s important to try layering your moisturizing skin care products by first applying a serum and then a day or nighttime moisturizer. Then, seal in the added moisture with a facial oil, like Age Perfect® Hydra Nutrition Facial Oil with SPF30 for daytime, to help your skin stay better hydrated for longer periods of time.

  • Discourage sagging skin.
    To help keep skin looking taut, you’ll have to fight against gravity. Always apply your skin care products, like cream, serums and facial oils, in an upward motion. And don’t forget about other areas of your skin too, your neck and chest can also experience sagging skin.

You’ll have skin concerns at any age and the key to addressing them is always the same: You have to find the best skin care routine to match your age and its new set of needs as time continues to go on.
