It's no surprise that with each passing decade, your face begins to change. You may notice the odd wrinkle or laugh line, or that even the shape of your face begins to alter. (It's scientifically proven that your face shape changes with age. Who knew?) Here is the breakdown of what happens to your face decade by decade, plus some tips to keeping your skin looking youthful and glowing!
You think you're out of the woods in your 20s, away from teenage acne and into the best skin years of your life! But acne has been known to follow women well into their 20s. For the occasional breakout, try using pure apple cider vinegar and water to kill off acne causing bacteria. Or my favourite go-to, a honey and cinnamon mask! Honey is a natural anti-biotic and cinnamon is anti-microbial. Together in this sticky mask they work wonders at settling skin! Don't forget how you treat your skin now will impact it's future appearance, so protect it from the sun and use an antioxidant rich moisturizer to keep it fresh and radiant!
In your 30s, those infamous skincare buzz words like "fine lines" and "dark spots" can surface. Hyper-pigmentation, aka brown patches, can creep into your complexion. Mostly they are caused by sun exposure earlier in life, but can also be the result of birth control hormones. Look for a night cream which helps cells restore while you snooze. Preferably one with alguronic acid, which nourishes and increases cell growth.
The 40s are a time when skin can lose a lot of it's natural hydration, leaving wrinkles and lines more pronounced. Using a moisturizer with antioxidants and peptides can keep skin soft and refreshed. Drinking lots of water also keeps skin looking quenched, while aloe vera provides intense relief from dryness.
