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, and hydrating 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 Glow Pillow-Use code “Zaina10”
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, it is antibacterial, and prolongs wear of eyelash extensions. I love that it helps adjust to the shape and contours of your face. The shape and of the pillow can help minimize skin twisting and folding.
Use code “Zaina 10” to save $10 off and on a Sleep & Glow Pillow HERE.
