Our Skins are of different varieties- Oily, dry, Combination, Mature or Acne prone
It is important that you know your skin type as this helps you choose your routine skin care regimens and treatments better.
In your 20s:
Your skin is at its best at this age. The skin is soft, supple and radiant. Hence essential products are recommended such as an appropriate cleanser, sunscreen and moisturizer. Any other issues such as acne need to be treated alongside with appropriate medicated preparations.
Dryness sets in and one notices the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. There is a decrease in the overall radiance of the skin of the face and eyes. This is the time your skin needs your attention. To improve the texture and quality of the skin and prevent accelerated ageing of the skin, appropriate formulations are advised. Procedures that can restore your skin’s youthfulness are suggested too.
In your 40s:
The dryness and dehydration of the skin increases. Skin Lines increase and wrinkles deepen. There is loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone. Pigmentation in the form of freckles , sun spots , melasma appear .Hormonal changes show up as dullness of skin and loss of tone.Heavier moisturizing agents with active ingredients are introduced along with treatments.
In your 50s and 60s:
The skin changes worsen and sagging of skin around the lower face and jawline leading to jowls begins.The Wrinkles deepen into folds.At this stage any skin products are of limited value and treatments are almost always necessary.
In your 70s and beyond:
All the above mentioned changes may be present in different degrees depending on your genetics, hormonal changes or illnesses .Once again our approach is to suggest anti-ageing solutions which would combine stronger cosmeceutical agents and procedures.
Genetics also determine the quality of the skin but what you have inherited needs to be maintained. A soft, supple radiant skin implies good health .Your lifestyle can also play a major role in determining the health of your skin. A balanced diet and exercise in moderation would go a long way in giving your skin that luminous glow. Smoking, can add years to the face and is an independent risk factor for premature ageing of skin.
