Your Skin Beauty

By Mary Caliendo

Your Beauty is skin deep. Here's a small guide for your skin through the stages and ages of your life.

In your teens and early 20's it is very important that you take care of yourself. As with everything in your future, your health and your beauty starts early.

When you are young and looking into the mirror, you don't immediately see a 50 year old self looking back at you. But your old bad habits will show up when you are older, and unfortunately it will show up on your face.

In this age category you will get pimples here and there, or you will get acne. In your young teens and 20's your glands just overproduce oil and thus pimples. Please don't use harsh chemicals to zap them, your skin is delicate at this time and will not need those harsh very adult remedies.
Instead, use gentle washes at bedtime, and apply a moisturizer. Look for a lotion that contains an SPF of 15 or above. Make sure also that it contains UVA and UVB sun protection.

Coming into your middle years, you may start to notice subtle skin changes. Sometimes, very late 20's through even early 40's fine lines appear, perhaps a wrinkle or two. *Anything damaging that happened to your skin in your 20's will start to creep in now.* Please continue to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun, they are extremely damaging!

Your daily morning regimen should include a product to exfoliate your skin. For your bedtime wash, you should maintain use of a mild cleanser. Many great creamy ones are on the market.
Look for a retinol type lotion at night. (this will repair damage as you sleep)

Skin now that is entering the latter part of the 40's and into 50's show signs of losing its elasticity. Pores increase in size, and often time we see spider veins and sometimes age spots will appear. Continue to treat yourself with care using a more creamier cleanser, and looking for a pore reducing product. During these times women also may be dealing with menopausal issues.
Or perhaps even medications now will contribute to skin issues. Dry patches and even Rosacea may appear. Continue to moisturize, and continue using SPF protection.

Lastly, here are also a few other things that will contribute to having healthy skin. Drink plenty of water and get a great night's sleep. Eat plenty of water-based fruits and vegetables, lean meats and fresh fish.

Good skin practices start early and with a bit of help from good genes and a great lifestyle you can be radiant throughout all the stages of your life.
