Skin At Every Age

Skin in its 20’s

  • Skin is plump, producing an adequate amount of oil and collagen
  • Cell turnover is healthy, occurring around every 14-25 days
  • Now is the time to establish a consistent regime to control oil, maintain healthy skin and protect from future damage
  • There may be oiliness, breakouts and fine lines around eye area
  • Skin is an excellent record keeper. Sunbathing, smoking, late nights and cocktails will show up on your skin 10 years from now

Skin in its 30’s

  • Cell turnover slows to 30 days leading to dehydration and dull skin (dryness)
  • Fine lines on the eye area may be visible
  • Signs of post-sun damage skin may begin to surface, including lines, uneven pigmentation and brown spots
  • The ageing process is underway, resulting in 1% less collagen every year

  • Skincare regimes should focus on correcting and protecting
