How to Update Your Skincare Regimen as You Age

Working out the perfect routine for your skin care isn’t easy. After all, everyone’s skin is different. There is no guarantee that the treatment or product that helped your friend will have a similar impact on your complexion. Additionally, even once you have found the perfect skincare regimen, it’s important to realize that it will likely have to be modified over time as your skin ages and changes. What worked last year might not work today, much less a decade down the road.

How to Update Your Skincare Regimen as You Age

That’s why the skincare experts here at AYA™ Medical Spa are happy to recommend some cosmetic treatments and natural ingredients that may be able to help promote beautiful, young-looking skin regardless of your age. Consider these recommendations as a baseline to help get your potentially new skincare regimen off the ground.

In Your Twenties

Protecting your skin from the sun’s UV rays is always highly recommended, but especially for younger people who still have the chance to prevent sun damage before it occurs. Make it a point to apply sunscreen daily, even in the fall and winter months. For anyone regularly drinking alcohol or staying out late, it’s especially important to maintain your skins hydration level. Try skincare products with retinol like Revision® Skincare Retinol Complete™ to boost collagen production and plump up your skin. Antioxidants like vitamin C can also be extremely beneficial.

In Your Thirties

Hormonal changes can lead to considerable changes in your skin throughout your thirties. For instance, as your skin cell turnover slows, your skin may lose some of its brightness and begin to see wrinkles and other signs of aging. A chemical peel at AYA™ like the VI PEEL™ can be a great way to fight off wrinkles and lines by replenishing your supplies of collagen and elastin as they begin to decline.

In Your Forties & Beyond

As you enter your forties, it’s common to notice more wrinkles and skin that is less firm and hydrated. Applying natural, anti-aging ingredients like Hyaluronic acid can go a long way towards revitalizing your skin. Facial fillers from Juvéderm® can effectively fight off wrinkles and fill in areas of lost volume to keep your facial skin young-looking and smooth. Sciton® Laser Treatments can be an excellent way to treat skin discoloration, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and other effects of sun damage that appear on the skin over time.
