The Seven Ages of Skincare by Solvaderm
It’s given that our skin changes as we age and that as we get older we need to take better care of it. However, it is not simply a case of buying and applying more moisturizer with each passing year. Skin care needs, like other areas of women’s health, change over time depending on our hormone levels and where we find ourselves in reproductive cycle. Here’s a guide to taking the best care of your skin at every age.
This is when hormones first make their presence known in our skin which overnight can turn from being almost pore less to greasy and filled with blemishes. Daily cleansing with natural face wash can help to reduce blocked pores, and helps control breakouts.
The 20’s tends to be when skin is at its best, plump and naturally full of collagen with no wrinkles in sight. Regular cleansing, toning and moisturizing is all that is needed for problem free skin with the odd facial thrown in to keep things glowing. Wearing sunscreen of SPF30 or higher will provide long term protection. Dermaxsol is a daily moisturizing sunscreen with SPF-30 providing protection against skin aging and UV rays. It moisturizes and blends naturally with the color of your skin reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
For many women in their 30’s, motherhood plays a big factor in skin care. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can have a beneficial effect on the skin, postpartum effects can cause havoc. When this is tied-up with sleepless nights, tired skin can ensue. Minimize damage with regular facials and pampering treatments.
In your 40’s, estrogen levels start to fall noticeably, affecting the production of Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen. Skin starts to lose its elasticity and wrinkles become more prominent. Regular anti-ageing treatments such as Solvaderm’s ACE-Ferulic serum help rejuvenate the skin. A good day and night time moisturizing routine can make a huge difference.
With most women reaching the Menopause in their 50’s, the decline of hormones can result in drier skin. This lack of moisture can cause wrinkles to become deep set which is when many women consider cosmetic surgery. With or without medical intervention, the skin’s appearance can be dramatically improved by products that promote moisture retention.
This is where earlier good or bad habits will start to show up, particularly in the delicate areas around the eyes and on the neck. Lack of sun protection and environmental damage caused by smoking can result in sunspots, deep wrinkles and dry patches. Products like Stemuderm serum from Solvaderm which contains natural stem cells that accelerate skin rejuvenation can help.
There is no reason why women can’t continue to have glowing skin into their 70’s, think of Raquel Welch or Catherine Deneuve. Skin sensitivity means harsh cleansers should be avoided, also creams should contain a humectant to help the skin retain moisture. Finally, it is more important than ever to wear a broad spectrum SPF of at least 30 to protect against the sun.
Solvaderm have developed their products to help keep skin youthful and glowing and want your skin to look its most beautiful whatever your age is.
