A beauty routine changes as we age. Here we show you how to simplify your facial skincare routine in order to maximize the results.
For ladies in their 20’s, prevention is top of the list. You need to choose a moisturizing lotion that contains sunscreen. As minor breakouts are more common among women in this age range, choose a purifying cleanser for the face and opt for an oil-free formula for your day cream.

With your 30’s come the early signs of wrinkles. These little unwanted creases will start to appear around your eyes first, so add an eye contour cream to your beauty routine. The skin’s texture doesn’t just change due to aging, but also after a pregnancy. You therefore need to exfoliate more often to eliminate any graininess.

Small creases transform into full-blown laughter lines and other “expression creases” as the production of collagen slows down. It’s important to use a serum, as this kind of product affects the deepest layers of skin. At this point in your life you will also need to apply products to your neck and neck line.

When you hit your 50’s, the body produces less estrogen, which affects the skin’s ability to retain water and regenerate. Opt for active ingredients like retinol that help renew skin cells and increase hydration. This product does make skin more sensitive to sunrays, however, so remember to also apply a sunscreen with a high SPF!

Neutrogena Rapid Wrikle Repair™ Moisturizer SPF 30 is a daily moisturizer with sunscreen that visibly fades the look of stubborn wrinkles, including crow's feet and forehead and cheek wrinkles in just one week.
In your 60’s, along with a loss of elasticity and lower hydration levels, your skin is also dealing with deeper, more noticeable wrinkles and dark spots. Multi-action products are your best bet as they are formulated to fight all signs of aging. Choose a serum to treat the surface of your skin and a rich cream for a deeper hydration boost.
