Skin Care Through the Ages

 

Ever have a bad skin day? It doesn’t have to be. Despite hormone fluctuations and other inevitable challenges of aging, skin can retain a youthful healthy glow well into one’s senior years. An age-appropriate skin care routine and medical grade products that target specific areas are key.

 

No matter your age, the number one product in your anti-aging arsenal should be a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 50. There are many good ones on the market.

 

The 20s–Get your vitamin C!

 

Prevention and maintenance are important factors for young skin. In your 20s, it is ideal to add to your regimen a potent, pure dose of vitamin C that is stabilized to brighten and re-texturize the skin.

 

Two powerful products in this category are Ossential® C-Bright™ which provides antioxidant protection to combat free radical damage and also helps tighten and firm skin. Ossential® Daily Power Defense is a lightweight lotion that helps protect and repair. Its powerful antioxidants help defend against environmental triggers that cause pigmentation and help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

The 40s—Repair, exfoliation, and maintenance are key to prevent the signs of damage and aging!

 

A lightweight, high-potency retinol lotion can help reverse the signs of skin aging and also help reduce lines and wrinkles. It can even help skin renew itself. Retamax™ comes in different strengths and is prescribed in a strength that’s appropriate for your specific skin type. Getting the right strength for your skin is important. Too strong or too weak won’t get the job done.

Glycogent™ is another beneficial product for the 40s skin. With a unique glycolic and lactic acid complex, it assists with the removal of dead cells for the ultimate skin surface renewal. Gentle but effective, and the removal of dead cells allows for increased cell regeneration.

 

The 60s–Recover lost nutrients and moisture as well as address repair issues!

 

What you did for your skin in your 20s and 40s now needs to be adjusted. Nourish and hydrate!

 

Consider a complete anti-aging formula that works overnight to repair and regenerate severely dry, irritated skin. Ommerse® Overnight Recovery is a favorite. Its natural ingredients complement skin’s own recovery process. Its companion product Ommerse® Daily Renewal is a light, functional hydrator that targets dehydrated skin without leaving an oily residue, so skin stays fresh looking all day. It also helps repair the skin’s protective barrier and provides antioxidant protection—kind of like your day-armor!

 

Consult with a licensed skin aesthetician that can tailor a skin regimen for your specific age, stage, and lifestyle.
