2. Not adapting your skincare routine to your age
“There’s no doubt that your skin will change as it ages. The skincare regime you used in your twenties will not necessarily continue to be right for your forties if you’re looking to maintain that youthful glow. In our twenties, we often still see so-called teenage skin with oiliness and occasional breakouts. Often, however, it is the decade that most individuals feel is the peak of skin health. Robust skin that is relatively hardy, has that youthful glow and for most the end of acne.
“By our thirties we usually start to notice those early subtle signs of ageing skin. For example, skin becoming a little less hydrated, for some it may be the first time they have needed to use a moisturiser. Dynamic wrinkles we see in our twenties become a more fixed with the development of fine lines.
“By our forties I believe our skin starts to reflect our lifestyle and skin care. Individuals start to notice increased dryness as the skin barrier becomes less efficient. Loss of skin firmness and age spots and visible thread veins are a common complaint. It is time to invest in good skin care products. I regularly use an antioxidant serum and focus my diet on antioxidant foods. Again, a high factor sun block is very important and I would advise most individuals would benefit from more active treatments.”
