How to Take Care of Your Skin Once You Turn 35

How to Take Care of Your Skin Once You Turn 35 When planning your skincare regimen, you should take your age into account. For example, when you’re 20, simple cleansing and regular moisturising should be enough to look good, but once you turn 35 or so, you need to make sure that your skincare routine includes rejuvenating products that help to prevent the signs of premature skin ageing. How should you tweak your skincare regimen once you turn 35?

The age of 35 is traditionally perceived as a kind of watershed separating youth from maturity. Of course, you can still look young at this age, but you body starts to work differently once you reach your mid-30s. The production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, which are required to maintain the skin’s natural firmness and elasticity, decreases, while the process of their destruction intensifies.

If you don’t do anything about it now, you may notice the first signs of premature ageing by the age of 40. They include fine lines and wrinkles, thin and sagging skin, and a dull complexion. To make them go away is much harder than to take steps to prevent premature skin ageing, so we strongly recommend that you revise your skincare routine to make sure it is age-appropriate. Let’s take a closer look at the main stages of a basic skincare routine for women aged 35 or older.

Cleansing

Everyday cleansing should be the cornerstone of your skincare routine at any age. However, once you turn 35, you should be more careful when choosing facial cleansing products. For example, you should not use products that can strip your skin of moisture and natural oils, such as regular soap or facial cleansers with SLS. Opt for products with mild formulas that not only remove impurities, but also help to maintain the skin’s hydro-lipid balance and prevent irritation.

Toning

When you were younger, you could skip toning without any dire consequences for your skin. However, as you’re getting older, you should start paying more attention to this step in your beauty routine. You need to use toner in order to restore your skin’s pH balance after cleansing and prepare it for applying moisturiser. Find a toner that is free of ethanol, synthetic dyes and fragrances, and other ingredients that can dehydrate or irritate your skin; you can try, for example, hydrolate toners based on herbal distillates.

Moisturising

At the age of 35 or older, it becomes harder for your skin to maintain optimal moisture levels on its own; it rapidly loses moisture and, consequently, its firmness and elasticity. Therefore, you need to apply moisturiser at least twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. Make sure that the product you choose contains humectants and emollients; such ingredients include, for example, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera extract, cucumber extract, algae extract, hydrolysed vegetable protein, squalene/squalane, allantoin, panthenol, vegetable oils, urea (carbamide), various polysaccharides, amino acids, lactic acid, and ceramides.

Nourishment and Recovery

To maintain normal skin cell metabolism when you’re 35 or older, you need to use nourishing products that will provide your skin with the nutrients it needs (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc.), as well as stimulate its regeneration and renewal. Try facial serums, masks, or other skincare products formulated with natural oils, hydrolysed proteins, ceramides, honey, vitamins A, C and E, hyaluronic acid, etc.

UV Protection

Exposure to UV radiation is one of the main causes of premature skin ageing. To prevent premature wrinkles and age spots, you should protect your skin from UV rays by using products with SPF. Choose the SPF level depending on the needs of your skin and the climate in your area. It is important to protect your skin from the sun all the year round, even in winter, but sun protection is especially important in summer.

Rejuvenation

If your beauty routine didn’t include this step before, it’s time to incorporate it into your skincare regimen. You need to at least try skincare products that help to compensate for the lack of natural hyaluronic acid and collagen, making your skin smoother and boosting its firmness and elasticity. You should also try skincare products with neuropeptides, which act as muscle relaxants and thus help to smooth out fine lines and reduce deeper wrinkles.

To keep your skin looking healthy and youthful after you turn 35, you need to complement the classic 5-step daily skincare routine with boosting skincare products that need to be used once or twice a week, such as intensive skincare masks or serums with a high concentration of active ingredients. Besides, there are a few skincare taboos for mature and ageing skin.

For example, you should once and for all forget about harsh face scrubs that can damage the skin, because your skin’s regeneration levels are not what they used to be. Instead of scrubs, exfoliate your skin with delicate gommages, gentle peeling gels, or chemical peels with a low concentration of organic acids/enzymes.

To keep your skin healthy, don’t touch your face unless absolutely necessary and don’t rub or stretch your skin when you remove makeup. And, of course, you absolutely mustn’t pick your pimples because it may lead to inflammation and acne scars, which are very hard to get rid of, especially when you’re older. If you already have acne, invest in products that balance the skin and produce an antiseptic effect; if they don’t help, consult a beautician or a dermatologist.

As you can see, taking care of your skin once you turn 35 is not hard at all. All you need to do is choose the right products that meet the need of your skin and use them regularly, following the five-step skincare routine.
