How to Look Your Best at Every Age.

Skin changes as the years go by – and your skin & body care routine should change with it! Here are our quick tips to help you look your best at every age.

Let’s face the music

Aging is inevitable!

No matter how much we try to convince ourselves otherwise, the clock is going to keep on ticking and our skin is going to age. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing – and you can apply healthy skin & body care habits that will keep you looking your best no matter what your age.

We all know that our skin changes as we age, but what’s exactly happening? The skin is a remarkable organ, its ability to regenerate itself really is a wonder. New cells are constantly forming, but cells regenerate at a slower pace as we get older. Because of this, you may notice your skin texture changing over the decades. Skin becomes thinner as the years go by, and you may see more age spots. These are actually areas of hyperpigmentation caused by UV rays – another reason why it’s so critical to wear sunscreen at every age!

Our skin also loses some of its natural elasticity as the years go by, leading to sagging and wrinkles. Compounding the problem is the loss of lipids (fatty acids) over time, which are responsible for keeping skin moisturized – meaning your moisture needs will change over time.

We have to face it, our skin care needs are going to change as we age. What treatments worked for you in your 20s is probably not going to be as effective after a decade or two! On the other hand, we’re so inundated with “anti-aging” products that it’s easy to get ahead of ourselves when it comes to developing an effective skin care routine. Whether you’re 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, or beyond, it’s important to choose a regime and products that are appropriate for your age and skin type.

Here’s some of Serente's favorite beauty products, services  and treatments for beautiful skin and body contouring at every age.

Be beautiful in your 60's and 70's

A crucial element to skincare as you age is moisturizing! By the time you hit your 50's, your skin is losing its elasticity and you may start to see sagging. Though now you can turn back the clock , you also can keep your skin (and yourself) hydrated!

It’s also worth reviewing your cosmetics. If you’ve been wearing the same makeup look for a few decades, then it’s probably time to freshen up your style. Many women complain that their eyes appear smaller, so think carefully about your eye make up.  While mascara is a brilliant tool, you may want to switch from a hard black to a softer brown and work to emphasis your eyes in a more nuanced manner. Don’t forget my love of eyelash curlers too – they can turn a beauty bad day around!

In your 40's-50's, uneven skin tone is one of the most common complaints women have. This can be caused by too many hours in the sun with resulting age spots (so keep up your sunscreen routine!). It can also be a throwback to pregnancy which leaves some women with melisma (also known as the mask of pregnancy).

Other hormonal changes during this decade and the possible onset of menopause could leave you wondering where your youthful skin went. At this time, it’s best to come in for a consultation for suggestions and possible treatments for your changing skin that will help you look and feel your best.

Many women in their forties feel confident that they have their skincare regime nailed down so it’s a pain to realize that you may have to adapt and evolve. Happily enough, small changes do add up so you may need only a few tweaks to regain control of your skin.

Be beautiful in your 30's

This is when you may start noticing the signs of aging. Your skin starts to lose collagen and elastin and a few fine lines might make their debut on your face. You may need to change your beauty regimen to include more facial's and moisturizing products.

It’s common to start seeing signs of aging around your eyes, too. This is the decade when you should consider adding an extra step in your beauty regimen to focus specifically on the skin around your eyes.

A quick tip to avoid encroaching laughter lines? Wear big sunglasses! The bigger, the better in my book. If you choose shades with UVA and UVB protection then you’ll be keeping more of your face covered and protected from the sun. And, the best thing about shades is that they reduce the likelihood of squinting. Squinting is not a good look, so throw on some shades when you’re outdoors or driving and you could delay eye wrinkles.

Be beautiful in your 20's

If you haven’t already started a beauty regimen, now’s the time! It’s important to get into a habit of developing a good skin care routine early on because it will help you look your best for years.

You may be seeing changes to your skin since you’re coming out of your teenage years and your hormones may be changing. Your skin will continue to adjust throughout your 20s, so take some time to figure out what your skin type is and choose your beauty regimen accordingly.

Some simple lifestyle changes can help, too. Late nights out and too much time in the sun can affect the appearance of your skin. Start wearing sunscreen daily if you don’t already do so, because this will help your skin remain elastic and supple. And while it’s tempting to stay out late socializing, try to limit your late nights so you can look your best during the day.
