Act Your Age With Skin Care

Act Your Age With Skin Care

People experience many changes as they age, and that includes changes in their skin. The body’s largest organ evolves over time, so it’s important for one’s skin care routine to evolve with it.

Although dermatologists’ skin care recommendations for each individual depends on their age, there are a few core steps dermatologists advise virtually every patient to take:

1. Select products tailored to your skin type–for example, special formulations for sensitive skin, moisturizing products for dry skin, and oil-free or non-comedogenic options for oily skin.
2. Protect your skin from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun and indoor tanning beds, which can lead to skin cancer and early skin aging. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that you shield yourself from the sun’s harmful UV rays by seeking shade, wearing protective clothing, and using a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
3. Use a Retin-A, unless it dries out or irritates your skin. Retin-A increases cell turnover to exfoliate clogged pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines, which means they can effectively treat both acne and wrinkles.

While these steps form the foundation of most skin care regimens, each individual’s skin care routine should be based on age and your skin’s specific needs.
