FLAWLESS Skin at Every Age
Skin care regimes are kind of like people -- they must change and evolve over time. Each decade presents its own challenge -- a daunting task. There are so many choices for products and brands. How do you decide what to use? To help combat skin care confusion, we've rounded up some of our favorites for every era of your life.
Revel in your nautral beauty and enjoy your fresh, radiant skin. Now is the time to form good habits (always wash off your makeup) so you should be starting to think about some best practices and small steps (sunscreen!) for taking care of your body, skin, hair, and everything in between. We know acne can be a big issue during high school and college, so find products that aren't too harsh and include zit-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and tea tree oil.

At this age, you should start to shift your thinking to preserving and protecting your beautiful skin. Your 20s can be full of extremes: all-nighters at the office, spring breaks without sunscreen, and lingering acne from your teen years. But you CAN find the right products to combat all of these things. Your focus here should be finding a daily skin routine full of moisture, SPF, antioxidants, and gentle cleansing. Bonus points if you find a product that does all of these things in one!

Your biggest skin challenges in your 30s are most likely dark spots and fine lines. According to Olga Lorencin, aesthetician and co-owner of Kinara Spa in L.A., "you need to start exfoliating regularly because skin only exfoliates naturally every 35 days as opposed to every 14 days in your 20s." Focus on choosing a cleanser that also exfoliates and lush creams to hydrate the skin around troubled areas like your eyes. In your 30s, treat yourself! Skin peels, microdermabrasion, and spa days are all good things to include in your routine.

In your 40s and on, it becomes the battle of the expression lines around your eyes and mouth. To combat this you'll need to add moisture (as always) and collagen-building ingredients to your regimen like peptides. Choose products with regenerating and repairing properties, like serums, oils, and lotions!
