A go-to skin and hair routine contribute to feeling and looking your best. Along with eating healthy and staying hydrated, owning a dependable set of products for your skin and hair can ensure these features are getting the daily treatment they need. For those of us who are beyond the age of 30, this is especially important because our bodies are lacking certain nutrients that make our hair and skin healthy. As we age, our bodies begin to lack the naturally producing vitamins, such as Biotin and Niacin, that keep our skin wrinkle free and our hair shiny. It is important to be open about switching your beauty products to insure a proper coordination when it comes to your aging concerns and the ingredients that help conceal or reduce their appearance.
That Glow Though: In Your 20’s Skin Care
For individuals with young skin, a day of sun exposure at the beach, ten minutes in the tanning bed, or skipping a day of cleansing your face might not make or break your appearance. But, many of these activities are ones that older people regret doing when they see the condition of their skin later in life. It is just as important to take care of your skin when you are in your twenties as a preventative initiative. To keep the glow going, here are my recommended skincare products to prevent any early signs of aging:
Gentle Facial Cleanser: helps to treat blemishes, hydrate skin, and melt away makeup.
Exfoliator: removes dry skin cells from the skin’s surface to create a smoother appearance.
Moisturizer: prevents skin from drying out.
Brightening Eye Cream: reduces the appearance of fine lines and enhances your under-eye area.
Sunscreen with Zinc: Find a sunscreen that contains the vitamin Zinc, this helps reduce the amount of UVB rays that penetrate into the skin and cause severe skin damage.
Seeing the Signs: You’ve Hit Your 30’s Skin Care
As we age, our bodies transform with us, especially when it comes to our skin. These changes can come with a skincare modification as well. Dehydration, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and even physiological differences are all common and natural changes that come with aging. It is important not to ignore them. Almost every beauty brand has an anti-aging skincare line, and the products include specific ingredients that help reduce, hydrate, or conceal signs of aging. Here are some anti-aging skincare products that can make you feel young and fresh:
Hydrating Facial Cleanser: dryness and dullness come with maturing. Using a hydrating cleanser with the ingredient of camellia oil can help boost skin cells, and increase overall hydration leaving the skin feeling fresh and youthful.
Anti-Wrinkle Boosting Serum: can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age spots.
Retinol Eye Cream: boosts collagen to help improve the skin’s elasticity.
UV Protection Sunscreen (SPF 50): will protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays, and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation due to previous sun exposure.
Firming Sleep Mask: improves dullness and uneven texture.
Saying goodbye to your go to products and trying something new can be a daunting experience. But, once you find new anti-aging products that work for you, it can be the beginning of a new skincare love affair.
Hair, just like our skin, becomes more delicate as we age. Once you’re over 40, your hair needs more care than usual. Some signs of aging that become noticeable to your hair are thinning, dullness, grey hair, and breakage. These products can help bring some life back into your hair:
Cover the Grey: If your noticing an overabundance of grey hairs, try a custom hair dye kit. A unique-to-you hair color is crafted and delivered to your doorstep!
Keratin Infused Shampoo: Gives your hair extra protein for strength and durability.
Volumizing Conditioner: As you age, your hair can become brittle or dull. With the use of a volumizing conditioner, ingredients will boost your roots to create thicker luscious hair.
Anti-Aging Hair Treatment: Once in a while, you can treat your hair with an anti-aging leave in treatment. The product is left in for 5-10 minutes to ensure your hair is soaking the product to boost vibrancy and help bring essential proteins back into your hair.
Limit the Use Of Heat Tools: Heat and hair don’t mix well. Using any sort of heat tool, such as a straightener or curling iron, can cause breakage and dryness to the hair. Try to limit their use, and instead naturally dry your hair, and try some non-heat hairstyles!
A consistent and dependable beauty ritual is vital if you want healthy skin and hair. It is important to evaluate the condition of these features to determine that the products you are using are beneficial for your hair and skin type. If you are using a product that you think you could be eliminated from your beauty routine, look through the products above for some helpful tips and recommendations!
Our Path To A Perfect Routine
We made so many beauty mistakes in our early 20s, from wearing multiple layers of foundation, which clogged our pores and also caused acne, to straightening our hair EVERY day! Result? We looked like Hagrid! Our hair was dry, damaged, it lost all the shine and looked totally dull and unhealthy. But these mistakes also learned us that taking care of your hair and skin is a must! Now we always wear sunscreen and apply moisturizer before bed (it protects our skin from dehydration as we sleep) and if we have blackheads or redness, we always opt for Niacinamide. We really love that no makeup makeup, barely-there minimalist look.
When it comes to our hair, it’s all about deep conditioning and moisturize! We deep condition our hair at least once a week to restore moisture back into our dry hair. We also love putting Argan oil on the ends, it really works wonders!
