How to look after your skin in every decade

By Zinzino

It’s not always easy to ‘read’ your skin. One day it’s dry and the next it’s oily, so you try a new product and now you’re battling redness, too. It can take years to understand the quirks of your complexion and there is no universal rule for radiant skin. But, going through your life stages doesn’t have to be a guessing game.

Your skin changes with each chapter of life you’re in, your diet and physical movement, stress and other lifestyle factors. It’s important to educate yourself about skin care requirements at every age. With the right products, mastering your skin and supporting it, getting older will be a cause for celebration, not an undertaking.

Skin rules in your 20’s

This is the invincible decade where you think you’ll never get old. It’s just not in your peripheral vision. It is the chapter of many transitions – of graduating into adulthood and discovering who you are. The last thing you’re probably thinking about is your skin. Yet, this is the decade you should prioritize skincare because, like any good investment, time is on your side and good habits compound. Start to become conscious of the products you put on your face. Always opt for natural, non-toxic solutions, so you don’t have to ‘work’ so hard in the future. Use SPF 30 every day to protect the skin from harmful, wrinkle-producing UV rays. Eat a diet high in protein, fruit and vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats and fish for skin wellness.

Nature is still on your side in your 30’s

Don’t freak out! You’re not old. This is the decade where you’ll probably start to take skin health seriously. Nature has it that in your 30’s the cells start to show signs of changing. A reduction in collagen production leads to less volume in the face. It’s also the chapter where women have babies, which has implications on the skin. Vitamin C, retinol and collagen are all anti-aging ingredients you’ve probably heard of before. However, the latest scientific breakthrough reveals the importance of the extra-cellular matrix (ECM) – the fine mesh of microfibers that supports the skin. The ingredients in Zinzino’s 24-Hour Skin Serum help reduce matrix breakdown. Squalene, 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans, tocopherols and tocotrienols, and olive polyphenols work in harmony to block the aging process. Put simply, Zinzino’s Skin Serum is your new BFF.

40 is the new thirty

Oh yes, it is! This is the time where your skin needs some extra loving. The lymphatic system, responsible for draining the toxins, starts to slow down. The skin tends to be puffier, dull and more vulnerable to external factors like sunlight and pollution. Invest in your self-care, especially if you’re a busy parent. Fine tune the strategies and routines that help manage your stress levels. Invest time in activities that you enjoy and help you feel youthful. Zinzino’s Skin Serum is a three-pronged approach that protects, repairs and rebuilds your extra-cellular matrix, which is crucial during this decade.

Copper heptapeptide and the 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans help form new collagen, elastin and other microfibers. While strengthening the skin’s elasticity, it simultaneously softens it, thanks to two ingredients: calendula and hyaluronic acid. The extra-cellular matrix  is in the focus of next generation anti-aging skincare – and each ingredient in Zinzino’s Skin Serum targets its regeneration.

50 is your time to shine

Sun damage and lifestyle choices become more visible now, creating dark spots on the skin. You’ll start to learn what spider veins are and how the lack of elastin makes things sag where they never used to. The eyelids turn heavy and ‘hooded’ as the skin loses its youthful body.

Focus on your entire body, not just your face. Moisturize your full body daily and accept that there’s great beauty in getting older. Nothing looks better than a mind that’s free from negative thoughts. The big 5-0 is your time to shine.

Zinzino’s Skin Serum supports that golden glow with beta-carotene. The natural color found in many fruits and vegetables, putting beta carotene on your skin will give you that bright, ‘I just got home from the tropics’ look.

60’s and beyond is all about maintenance

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize… like it’s your job. While breakouts and other issues are well behind you, the skin is much more fragile in your 60s. This is the high maintenance era and it’s not a bad thing. The 24-Hour Skin Serum is with you through the decades. It’s all-natural, vegan, fragrance and perfume-free, while it addresses both the causes and visible signs of aging. Protect, repair and restore your skin at any age with this serum.

Let’s re-balance the world starting with yours. Good skin will follow. Promise.
