While we’re sure every woman realises how important a proper skincare regimen is for good skin, we can’t really say if they are always doing it right! What if you are using a wrong ingredient for your age or not incorporating what you should? We’re not kidding. You need to tweak your skincare ritual with some additions and eliminations as you age, so your skin gets exactly the nourishment it needs.

Read on to know the skincare essentials and proper skincare regimen you should follow according to your age…

In your 20s

This is the age your skin is in glory, although it may be sensitive and prone to breakouts. You need to take proper care to avoid skin conditions like adult acne, premature ageing signs and acne. You can’t miss on the SPF at any cost. Start and end your days with double cleaning, wear a sunscreen all day, every day and moisturise to keep dryness at bay. Incorporate Lakmé Absolute Pore Fix Toner, Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturizer SPF 24 PA++ and products infused with salicylic acid.

Going on 30…

In your 30s, your skin starts to transition. It can become dry, pigmented and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles become prominent. This is the right time to invest in some anti-ageing products. Swear by an eye cream and night cream before going to bed. We recommend Ponds Age Miracle Eye Cream and Ponds Gold Radiance Youthful Night Cream. Use St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask to get the dullness and dryness away.

Embraced the good 40?

When you enter your 40s, your skin cell turnover reduces which results in slow collagen build up. To revive your skin and improve elasticity, use face oils high in antioxidants and products rich in Vitamin C and retinol. These ingredients repair the skin and make it plump. We recommend Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum and Ponds Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Day + Night Cream to get youthful, soft skin.

If you’ve hit 50

50s is an age when you go through extreme changes in skin. Your skin collagen and elastin continue to decline due to menopause and decrease in estrogen, making skin saggy and thin. Smile lines, wrinkles, crow’s foot are more visible than ever. Use sunscreen and moisturise by fail. Dermalogica Super Rich Repair and Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Sculpting Night Crème would help hydrate skin and making it firmer.
