Change is normal and as we age, there are a lot of things that keep changing. We meet other people from all walks of life and our circumstances and situations also change. All these changes bring about effects on our overall health and even appearance. That being said, it is important that as we age, we continue to adapt to our situations and make sure that we do our very best in taking care of ourselves at the same time. This is why is very important that our skincare routine needs to evolve as we age.
Why is it important to change our skincare routine as we grow older?
As our skin changes as we grow older, our diet, lifestyle, and fashion choices often have to follow. Because if we do the same kind of routine and use the same products as before, it may no longer be as effective or it may not even be good for us anymore. The truth is; it is necessary to update our skin care regimen as we move through different stages in life if we want to maintain good and healthy skin. We can never stop the aging process nor stop the clock, but what we can do take control of what our skin can look and feel like.
Skincare Routine in your 20’s
If you are in your teenage years up to your 20’s, your skin is still young and may only be facing minor issues. Oftentimes, some don’t even have any issues at all! But at this point in life, most skin issues are often with acne, dryness, oiliness, or slight discoloration due to exposure from the sun. At this age, you don’t need a lot of products yet for your skin. It is important to take note that your skin is still basically as normal and healthy when you are in this age bracket. So all you have to do is make sure you maintain a basic skin care routine and do spot treatments occasionally or when it is necessary.
For young skin, it is recommended that you use gentle products especially if you are on the sensitive side. But whether or not you have sensitive skin, your skin at this point in life does not need too much in it. For cleansing, use a facial cleanser that has gentle ingredients like La Colline Cellular Bio-Cleansing Milk.
