When does skin aging begin? – Naturally, our body is constantly reproducing cells. This cell activity slowly starts decreasing from the age of 25 and onwards, which in turn slows down the renewal of skin cells. Therefore, over time, skin ages, slowly loses its elasticity, and forms the first lines & wrinkles. Natural aging is influenced by three components:
External Influences (e.g. UV Exposure)
A healthy lifestyle, appropriate skin care, and protection can slow down the aging process. Here you can find all necessary information about when respective products are useful to prevent skin aging or reduce the signs of aging. Important: Everyone’s skin is different. Our tips are solely meant as a general guideline. Please always take your individual conditions and needs in to consideration.
Generally, it is important not to over strain firm skin at a young age with rich care products. However, our skin does in fact start storing less moisture after the age of 20. In this case light skin care is ideal to counteract this. In addition, appropriate protection is important at a young age, since this will preserve the youthful radiance of the skin longer. We recommend a moisturizing day care, paired with a product containing SPF. Depending on the skin type, it can be more beneficial to use a light serum instead of a rich cream.
Starting in your 30s, when first lines become more visible, the skin care may become a little richer. Depending on the skin type, light products with retinol, hyaluronic acid or vitamin C are recommended. Generally: The more intensive the anti-aging effect the richer the product. Your skin needs richer skin care if it tightens shortly after applying a cream. You should add a serum to your routine and apply as advised for more radiance. You could even extend your routine by adding specific evening skin care. The skin will slowly become more demanding and may show slight signs of fatigue in the form of swelling, irritation, or unwanted pigmentation.
In your 40s your skin will become more demanding. Due to a natural decrease in the collagen and elastin production and reduced blood circulation the skin tends to become drier, leaving the complexion more pale and tired looking. We recommend using products with collagen & resveratrol to further prevent wrinkles and promote firmness.
Occurring hormonal changes can cause sudden impurities. The sebaceous glands produce less fat due to the decreasing estrogen level leaving the skin drier and tighter. Rich anti-aging products containing nourishing oils help to reduce wrinkles and provide intensive moisture.
