Aging is inevitable. However, you can help slow down the aging process with the right skincare routine. Prevention and targeted treatments are important concepts in your skincare routine.
Adjust your skincare routine as you age
It is important to remember that as we age or enter a new decade in our lives, we all should adjust our skincare routine to suit our skin concerns. For example in your 20’s, you want to start with the basics such as using a moisturizer, gentle cleanser and sunscreen to prevent sun damage later on.
In your 30’s you want to start implementing preventative skincare treatments such as moisturizers with peptides or hyaluronic acid to prevent fine lines and build collagen. Maybe you can incorporate a retinoid and a vitamin C serum to give your skin a deeper boost to shed old dead skin cells and lighten old sun spots.

For your 40’s and beyond, you want to continue using antioxidant rich serums, creamy cleansers. You may want to consider some professional treatments like chemical peels. Incorporate rich moisturizers with peptides to help build collagen.
Exfoliate more often as you age
Keep in mind, as we age skin cells shed at a slower rate so what you do at home counts and make a difference in the texture of your skin. By exfoliating 1-3 times a week, you are encouraging new skin cell growth while shedding old dead skin cells. Your skin will look brighter as dark spots start to lighten. Here is a chart that explains how often skin cells shed based on age groups.
Products to help slow down the aging process:
1.) Sleep and Dream Pillow-
Did you know that sleeping on a cotton pillowcase can cause fine lines/wrinkles to form over time. After years of your face rubbing against your pillowcase, creases and wrinkles can start to occur from repeated friction and rubbing.
The Sleep and Glow Pillow helps: Fight morning puffiness, antibacterial, prolongs wear of eyelash extensions. I love that it helps adjust to the shape and contours of your face.
I love my pillow..I see a difference around my eye area. I feel like since I am a side sleeper, my left eye always looked a little puffy in the morning and now it seems to be more open and awake. ..Trust me this is a must have that you won’t regret!

The Aurí is a 24k gold plated dual-ended Gua Sha tool. It has multiple contours helps promote lymphatic fluid drainage and stimulate blood circulation.
This handy tool will not only help lift the face, but also help tone your jawline and skin. I love how this specific version of Gua Sha glides smoothly again my skin. My skin feels tighter and my under eye area seems to look more awake. Plus it is a great way to massage your skin on tired days.
