The Best Skincare Routine You Should Follow, Based On Your Age

The Best Skincare Routine You Should Follow, Based On Your Age

Laura Laura
9 minute read

We’ve all heard rubbish advice on which skincare routine to follow or products to use. Take the nonsense out of skin sense with Correxiko, no matter your age

Looking good these days is hard work, no matter how old you are. Sun damage, late nights, stress, and pollution have a way of packing themselves into our skin, leaving it dull and lifeless.

At some point or another, we’ve looked up advice on anything from skincare routines to hair care, from beauty advice to anti-ageing products. Products seem to be made with less care and effort than before, packaged in smaller and smaller bottles, and then sold for more than they used to cost. 

It’s exhausting trying to keep up with all the so-called trends and far-fetched advice.

In addition to this, some of the products we’ve been promised can eliminate fine lines and moisturise our skin may actually be more harmful to us than we thought. It’s like snake oil for skin!

Another thing you’ve probably heard a million times by now is how your skin changes as you age, losing elasticity and volume.

Along with these two major bugs, we know you can count on fine lines, sun spots, scars, and the occasional outbreak of acne (thanks to face mask fashion!)

Finding a skincare routine that just works as you age is a little complicated. That’s because your skin changes as you age. Yeah, we know. Bummer, right?

The skincare routine you used in your 20s is not the same routine you need in your 30s, 40s, 50s, or older. To keep your skin looking younger for longer, your skincare routine – and the products you use – need to change to keep up with your skin’s needs.

CORREXIKO Collagen products are designed to minimise fine lines, adding volume and lustre to your skin, your hair, and your overall glow. And as you age, the results get better and better!

But aside from supplementing your health and well-being with CORREXIKO Collagen products, there are a number of things you can do to take care of your skin.

And by incorporating these beauty fail-safes into your skincare routine, you’ll look and feel your best, no matter how old you are!

Skincare Routines In Your 20s

Skincare issues in your 20s generally involve concerns that include dullness, signs of sleep deprivation, and a build-up of sun damage.

In your mid-to-late 20s, it’s very important to get into a skincare routine that will set the scene for the years ahead. And although the visible signs of ageing aren’t that obvious yet, you can counter these effects by:

Using Sunscreen Daily

Don’t count on your makeup and moisturiser to protect your skin. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of SPF of 30 that will protect your skin from all harmful light sources, including what shines through open windows, and light emitted from your technology.

Even if you’re not planning to go outside today, these habit-forming skincare routines will help prevent sun damage build-up as you age. 

Exfoliating Gently

The biggest problem with skin in your 20s is the oily build-up. This can be caused by long-wear make-up that clogs your pores, eating too many unhealthy foods, and not having any skincare routine in place.

Exfoliating is key to healthy, oil-free skin. Whilst there are many products out there to choose from, knowing which ingredients are good or bad for your skin is vitally important to making the right choice.

The main ingredients in exfoliators are skin acids, specifically AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids) and PHAs (Polyhydroxy Acids. Keep in mind that exfoliators are chemical treatments, so be sure to moisturise and add SPF after every treatment.

Exfoliate no more than three times a week. You don’t want to be taking off layers and layers of your skin on a daily basis! Use a product that gets rid of dull skin cells but won’t strip your skin of essential oils.

Take Your Supplements

Intensively nourish your skin’s moisture-holding capacity from the inside, while lessening a dull and lacklustre skin tone. The pure, ultra-high-dose EPA and DHA content of CORREXIKO Omega 3 fish oil capsules mean the difference between softer, smoother, younger-looking skin … and the dry, lined, dull skin you used to have.

CORREXIKO Omega 3 fish oil capsules also contain 10mg of vitamin E. That’s 100% of your RDA, all in one convenient serving.

Skincare Routines In Your 30s

Traditionally a more stable time in your life, skincare routines should be well-established by the time you hit this milestone. Your skin is also past the puberty stage, which often lasts well into your late 20s.

Now is the time to start investing in yourself, your well-being, and your long-term skin health goals.

Sun damage and acne scars will start showing evidence on your face. Expect to see more fine lines, and a loss of volume in your cheeks. This can make your under-eye areas appear darker and more prominent.

Sun damage and pigmentation are also more visible at this age. Decreased collagen production and your skin’s own faulty repair system can result in skin that appears both duller and less tight, and you may begin to see the signs of early wrinkles or thinner skin around the eyes.

For Baggy Eyes And Dark Circles

Antioxidants can help repair sun damage and brighten dull, lifeless skin, while also rejuvenating and stimulating your body’s own natural collagen production.

The most common antioxidant found in skincare products is vitamin C, as this can help induce new collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers of the skin. 

The CORREXIKO Collagen capsule range contains Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Zinc, Manganese, and Selenium … for enhanced, gut-friendly absorption and effective, extensive results.

Skincare Routines In Your 40s

By now, you’re seriously considering laser treatments and vampire facials. Your skin has started to sag in what appears to be a major loss of elasticity almost overnight.

You’ve also come to realise that quite a few lifestyle adjustments are needed to support your skincare routine. Amongst these, you’re eating better, getting more sleep, taking time out for yourself, and have a well-established career that doesn’t add to your stress levels. 

Your children aren’t so small anymore, and you find yourself with time on your hands to really start doing all the things you’ve always wanted to do. If you’ve been taking collagen all these years, and have incorporated some down-to-earth skincare routines into your lifestyle, you’re sure to be the envy of your friends.

And if you haven’t been taking collagen all that long, you’re still sure to notice that your skin is better looking, more firmer, and more glowing than those around you who aren’t taking collagen.

As far as taking care of your skin goes, you should already be incorporating a dual approach to your skincare routine by using two different kinds of cleansers. The harsh exfoliators you used before should have made way for a gentle exfoliating cleanser that’s used together with a mild lotion-like cleanser to manage your skin’s growing needs for both cell rejuvenation and skin hydration.

For maximum moisture retention, encouraged skin-barrier repair, and that added glow, hyaluronic acid is your go-to.

Hyperpigmentation is a common, everyday skin issue that affects millions of women around the globe, especially in their 40s.

For issues with melasma, sun and UV damage, or uneven skin tone and texture, you need to treat your skin from the inside out.

Hyperpigmentation is the medical term used to describe patches of skin that may appear darker than the surrounding skin.

Examples of this include freckles, birthmarks, sun spots, age spots, acne scars, scalding with hot water, other burns, hormonal fluctuations, and more.

As your 40s lead, you ever-closer to menopause, you may find that unwanted skin discolouration – hyperpigmentation – has become more relevant to you.

Skincare Routines For The Over-50s

By now, you (and your body) are getting quite used to this whole menopause thing.

Your declining levels of estrogen and increased levels of androgens have had very little impact on your skin because you’ve been taking care of your skin for decades now – and supplementing with collagen.

Menopause has also brought additional surprises for you to deal with on a physical level, and you may find yourself now dealing with issues such as loss of bone density, thinning hair, premature greying, and severe skin dehydration issues that cause eczema-like rashes.

Not surprisingly, osteoporosis strikes one in every two women, and one in every five men, after the age of 50.

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, women are at higher risk for osteoporosis because female bones are smaller and less dense than male bones. During menopause, women and those with a family history of osteoporosis-related fractures are at even greater risk.

Deborah Sellmeyer, M.D., and medical director of Johns Hopkins Metabolic Bone Center recommends getting more protein. Says Sellmeyer: “In some studies, protein has helped with bone healing too.”

Your biggest skincare routine at this time should include solutions that help your skin retain moisture. Not many skin types can endure rough exfoliating cleansers and switching to a milder, milky cleanser that’s effective at removing dirt and debris, but not soapy enough to remove important oils your skin needs.

Investing in your skincare routine should leave you feeling empowered and make you happy. Look at yourself with kind eyes and remember to appreciate and rejoice in your best features.

Encourage skin cell turnover with gentle cleansing and boost skin repair by incorporating collagen into your everyday diet and lifestyle.

It’s never too late to start an anti-ageing skincare routine.

To look and feel your best over time, keep skincare simple, hydrating, age-appropriate, and gentle at all times for maximum improvement and easy lifelong maintenance.
