Skin Care Routine Recommendations for Every Decade of Life
At Keys Dermatology in Key West and Islamorada, FL, we believe that patients can easily care for their skin and maintain a youthful look at all times in their lives. Patients of certain ages may also have unique conditions that require a change in their skincare routine throughout one's life.
Below are a few of our skincare recommendations for patients of all ages!
- In your teens and 20s: Start off by cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser morning and night. Follow with a light moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. If you are starting to see signs of acne, talk to your dermatologist about prescription treatments or over-the-counter options.
- 30s: Fine lines may start to appear around this time. To combat them, use a retinol cream or serum nightly. Be sure to follow with a quality broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day as retinoids can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. A regular exfoliation routine will also help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- 40s: As we age, our skin starts to lose collagen and elasticity. To help combat this, use a serum or cream with peptides morning and night. Antioxidant-rich foods and products will also help protect your skin from environmental damage. Consider adding an at-home microdermabrasion treatment or professional facial to your beauty routine as well.
- 50s and beyond: Continue using a retinol cream or serum nightly as well as a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day. Add in an antioxidant-rich serum or cream to help fight off environmental damage. You might also want to consider using a hyaluronic acid serum to help keep your skin hydrated. A professional facial every few months will also help to keep your skin looking its best.
