Beauty through the ages

You should amend your skincare routine as you get older.

30sWhile your twenties are about preventing ageing with a basic skincare routine, your skin needs more attention in your thirties.

  • Choose a cream, foundation or tinted moisturiser with an SPF of at least 15 to protect your skin and prevent sun spots and wrinkles.
  • Start using eye cream to help strengthen the thin skin around your eyes. Opt  for gel base if you have an oily skin, or a cream if your skin is dry.
  • Supplement moisturiser with vitamin E oil to treat scars.
40s - As you grow older your skin loses its ability to retain water and its cells and fibres don’t regenerate as quickly, leading to a duller skin tone, wrinkles and sagging.
  • Swop to more hydrating moisturisers, preferably ones that will also target sun spots.
  • Serums have smaller molecules than moisturisers so are able to penetrate deeper.
  • With age and frequent colouring hair becomes brittle so use a hair-moisturising mask every two weeks to moisturise and strengthen your hair.
50s - Your fifties are about maintaining your routine and adding moisture and nutrients.

  • We love Bellabaci facial cups to deep cleanse and massage the skin. The cup gently pulls the skin and as you move it around the face it helps to cleanse pores and stimulate blood flow.
  • Facial oils contain pure plant oils and are rich in antioxidants and other nutrients.
  • Your neck and chest are tell-tale areas of ageing, so invest in a bust-firming cream.
