Rome wasn’t built in a day, and baby steps, and the hare and the tortoise – you know the story!  Listen, even your skin needs time – it takes approximately 28 days for a skin cycle to complete, so patient is the best thing that you can be!

At the moment, we have a chance to take good care of ourselves, and our skin. Our philosophy is all about caring for the skin from the Inside and Outside. So what can we do to make sure that our skin is as healthy as possible? With baby steps in mind, Pauline Lynch from Balance Clinic would be suggesting little changes that we can all make to ensure our skin is as healthy as possible – manageable, simple and extremely impactful tips.

Skin Care Tips In Your Teens

As a child, your skin frequently renews itself. However, as your teenage years begin, the frequency of renewal goes down. Generally, teenage skin is tougher and more resilient than that of children. However, within teenage years, the skin is still supple and can rejuvenate  quickly. The facial skin of teenagers reserves plenty of collagen (the most abundant protein in your body). But as you enter adulthood, the production of collagen decreases. This makes your skin prone to sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. Other common conditions could be breakouts, sensitivity, acne etc.

Alumier MD Enzymatic Peel is the perfect peel to start your new skincare journey- it’s completely customised to your skin type and needs, as well as how many layers to apply of the treatment. The end result is not only a soft, luminous glow, but also the smoothing of any fine lines, wrinkles and pores.

Skin Care Tips In Your 20s

Women have a lot going on in their 20s and establishing a good skincare regimen during this time is key. Many people in their twenties face numerous skin challenges like acne, scars, uneven skin tones, whiteheads, blackheads etc. While a good skin care regimen should address these issues, the early to mid-twenties is also the perfect time to begin focusing on preventing future aging symptoms, something I like to call “rejuvenation”. Skin Rejuvenation is the process of correcting the textural irregularities like wrinkles, freckles, sunspots, scars, cellulite etc. and emphsizes to improve the appearance of your skin with the best suited treatments for you. The goal of all of the skin rejuvenation is to reveal younger and smoother skin.

One of the most common examples of skin rejuvenation is skin resurfacing, a method that refers to any treatment or procedure that will physically remove the top layer of skin. The goal of resurfacing is to remove damage cells on the skin’s surface with different techniques, including lasers and light treatments. These different methods will vary in invasiveness with some requiring significant downtime to recover.

Clear start product kit from Dermalogica is an extremely effective brand which is created by the skin care experts and professionals to target breakouts & blackheads and help you to achieve  healthier & glowing skin.

Individuals with light to moderate acne can control breakouts by using mild acne products with lower concentrations of active ingredients. Acne peel products, offered by Alumier MD are rated as of the best and most effective for skin care.

Skin Care Tips In Your 30s

Turning 30 is the time to put your skin care ‘best intentions’ into action. Although 30 is the new 21 (and 21 is the new 12), it’s still around this time that signs of stress (physical and environmental), and the sins of your 20s (late nights, cigarettes and alcohol) begin to manifest themselves. Falling face down on your bed in your make up won’t wash once you hit your fourth decade. The common skin conditions discovered in 30s are fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, rosacea open pores etc.

Skin Care Tips In Your 40s

With age, our skin experiences a decrease in the production of collagen, natural oils and elastin, in turn, making it dry and look lifeless. The skincare mistakes one may have made at a younger age start becoming visible in the late 30s or early 40s. This is also when wrinkles, fine lines, thread veins, loose skin, jowling, double chin, age spots and hyperpigmentation start appearing on the skin. After 40, an ideal skincare regimen should include both corrective and preventive measures. This means that it should address the current concerns as well as prevent the skin from any further possible damage too. If possible, try to start taking skin care measure in your 20s or 30s as it helps to do the damage control which may occur in your 40s.

Micro needling may help with issues such as acne, large pores, stretch marks, scars, sun damage and fine wrinkles.

Skin Care Tips In Your 50s

Mind-set and perspectives aren’t the only factors of life that change as we grow older, our skin does too, and there are many reasons why. Unfortunately, our pasts may have caught up with us in terms of time spent in the sun, smoking, diet, or stress. Even past weight gain and loss can have an effect on our skin when we hit 50 and over. The older you get the slower your skin produces new cells, not to mention the hormonal changes and environmental factors you’ve been exposed to throughout your 30s and 40s. Due to overheated indoors and being less physically active, most women over 50 tend to have drier skin. In general, there is a greater need to use more hydrating and gentle skincare products. Fine lines, dark spots, loose skin jowls, eyes & cheeks, deep lines, wrinkles, dullness and unfortunately a loss of elasticity are all characteristics of skin over 50s.

This creates a series of pinpoint micro incisions and is carried out using a fractional laser, which means that only a small portion of the damaged skin is treated at any one time, allowing for quicker healing and less irritation.

Skin Care Tips In Your 60s

Most women in general, but particularly over 60, are concerned about the onset of an “aging” appearance. These women want to have “younger-looking” skin to match the eternal youth-brand machine they are exposed to every day. But wouldn’t it be great if instead of talking about “younger looking skin,” we could focus on having “healthy skin” at any age? As we get older, our skin undergoes a number of changes. How skin ages will depend on several factors such as your lifestyle, diet, heredity, and other personal habits (such as smoking). The most common skin conditions amongst the women of this age group are discovered such as rough or dry skin, loose facial skin especially around eyes, cheeks and jawline, transparent or thinned skin, bruising easily from less elasticity etc.
