One of the most important things we can do to stay healthy and beautiful is to take care of our skin. The skin is our most important barrier against bacteria, viruses and other pathogens.
It is also an outward reflection of our age and health. Although each type of skin needs special care, there are some general tips for all women who want to maintain their beautiful appearance as they age.
In this article, we'll talk about the different cosmetic products you'll need at each stage of your life so you can take the best possible care of your skin.
A beauty routine to apply from adolescence
From adolescence, it is important to start taking care of your skin. Most teenagers tend to have oily or combination skin, leading to pimples or skin blemishes.
The first thing to do is therefore to use a gentle cleanser daily to remove dirt and excess oil accumulated on the skin's surface during the day.
Then, apply a weekly facial mask to cleanse and hydrate the skin, and use a non-comedogenic moisturizer that won't clog pores and will prolong hydration for 24 hours or more.
Also use an antioxidant serum specially formulated for young adults that contains preventative anti-aging ingredients such as thiotaine (an amino acid) and retinoid (a natural derivative of retinol).
Make your skincare evolve as you age to have beautiful skin
As you age, your routine should evolve based on your skin type and the changes that occur as you age. For example, if your skin becomes dry with age, you'll need to switch to a milder sulfate- and soap-free cleanser that won't strip your face too much. You will also need to increase hydration by using a cream rich in vitamins C and E to reduce deep wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead; a face-body moisturizer enriched with marine collagen; a nourishing mask with essential oils; and a highly concentrated anti-aging cream with solubilized retinoid and/or argireline peptide.
Finally, after 50, it is very important to only use cosmetics suitable for mature women in order to achieve the best possible effect on the overall quality of your skin tone. Your routine should include a mild, soap-free cleanser; an alcohol-free toner; a moisturizing cream rich in revitalizing sea algae; an intensive treatment containing peptides that stimulate the natural production of collagen; SPF 30+ sun protection; And if needed - a timeless retinol anti-aging cream enriched with vitamins A & E to effectively combat any visible signs of skin aging.
You can find on our online store a range of anti-aging products that will adapt to your beauty routine.
5 skin care steps for women
Cleansing is the foundation of a good skin care routine and should be done every day. Use a mild, non-abrasive cleanser suitable for your skin type to remove dirt and impurities without irritating or drying out the skin. Once a week, you should use a gentle scrub to deeply exfoliate and remove dead cells from the surface of your skin.
Hydration is essential for maintaining proper skin hydration, which helps smooth wrinkles, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and give your face a younger, fresher look. Use a rich moisturizer daily after cleansing, making sure to thoroughly cover all areas of the face with a thin but even layer over the entire area affected by the product.
Sunscreen is absolutely essential if you want to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays that damage skin cells over time, leading to early wrinkles, dark spots, or even life-threatening skin cancer. Use an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen every day before exposing your face to UV rays for 15 minutes or more.
Your daily routine should include a few other things you need depending on your specific skin type – for example, applying an antioxidant-rich serum that fights free radicals responsible for the natural skin aging process; or using a weekly facial mask as a complement to other products you already use to take care of your face.
Nighttime is the perfect time to intensely nourish the skin as it tends to regenerate faster during sleep than during the day. Apply a rich moisturizer before going to bed (after applying a few drops of essential oil) so your face can fully absorb all the nutrients in this special formula while you sleep peacefully.
Taking care of your skin is essential if you want to keep your youthful appearance for a long time. Women must adapt their skincare routines each year because their needs change according to their age and skin type. There are different types of cosmetic products suitable for each stage: teenagers, adults, mature women. To achieve a fresh appearance, always choose products that are non-comodogenic, sulfate-free, and alcohol-free. By paying attention to this simple yet effective routine, women will be able to look beautiful and last a lifetime!
