Skincare At Every Age

The way we feel beautiful is different for every woman, and especially different at certain points in our lives.  Personally, I have found that the definition of what I consider beautiful in myself has changed tremendously over the years.  In my twenties, I felt beautiful if I had my acne under control, was rocking a smokey eye and was at the perfect weight. Truly fluffy stuff.  Now, in my thirties, I find that I feel prettiest when I am as closet to natural as possible, have taken care of my skin, and laughing over wine and food with my friends (diets went out the window years ago). 
Just as our ideas of beauty changes as we get older, so do our beauty needs.  Below is a list of essentials for every age in our lives.  Change is necessary, so why not embrace all the different transformations we have throughout our years.  Each new era that you get to rediscover yourself is extraordinary.

20’s:  This is the time when you can experiment with your makeup routine and hone in on your skincare needs.  During our twenties, we need to keep our skin hydrated, and watch for breakouts due to hormonal fluctuations. 


  • Orlane +25 skincare line.  An amazing line of skincare dedicated to the needs of younger skin.  The serum is one of my all-time favorite products (for all ages) since it replenishes, and rejuvenates dehydrated and lackluster skin.  They don’t call it the “hangover helper” for nothing!
  • Proactiv Skincare.  If you are battling acne, than look no further than this cult brand.  It is famous because it works. My only suggestion is to add their Green Tea Moisturizer to the regimen to protect your skin from dryness.

30’s:  Look for products with Hyaluronic Acid, which helps retain moisture and keep the skin supple.  Also, consider adding in retinoids and antioxidants into your skincare routine.


  • Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Day Cream and Eye Cream. This line is superbly gentle and effective.  These creams also help to keep the skin firm and intensely hydrated.
  • Olay Regenerist.  This is one of the first skincare lines I started using when I turned 30.  I still adore the Regenerist serum and eye serum. They are brightening, and feel incredibly light on the skin.  I swear they have helped me look like I have slept for hours, even when I have been up all night working.

40’s:  Now is the time to boost up your anti-aging regimen.  Look for products that will help to diffuse fine lines, and dullness.  My favorite tip is to look for products that create a brightening effect on the skin to help recreate a youthful glow.


  • Philosophy Full of Promise: These two powerful lines provide a 1-2 punch, and help to revive skin. Resveratrol helps promote skin's vitality for a firm, and radiant result….and it helps support natural collagen, brighten a tired complexion
  • Kiehls Powerful Strength Line eraser: This is a great addition to your normal moisturizer. Formulated with a 10.5% Pure Vitamin C, it gives your skin a boost by providing anti-oxidant protection and exfoliating skin to reveal healthier-looking skin.

50’s: Decreased oil production and loss of collagen can leave the skin feeling dehydrated.  During this time you skin needs more hydration and help to retain its elasticity. 


  • DHC Extra Concentrate: DHC says that its cream delivers a concentrated level of soluble collagen to help fight fine lines and poor firmness. It also contains Royal Jelly extract, which boosts the skins hydration.
  • Elemis pro-collagen marine cream: Ocean-sourced super-ingredients lift and hydrate skin (it is said that this decreases wrinkles in less than two weeks!).

Now that I have shared some of my tips with you, I would love to hear what are the favorite brands that you have used throughout the years?  

Brand Statement: As a leader in skincare with an eye for emerging trends, Olay is bringing the first-ever mass market CC line of products to the United States {Canada} beginning in October 2012. CC, or Color & Correct, Creams have started to emerge in Asia as a new category and  are designed for women who love BB Creams for their ability to provide a quick, flawless finish but are seeking skincare solutions that deliver long-term benefits. Olay Total Effects CC Tone Correcting: The Olay Total Effects CC Tone Correcting UV Moisturizers fight seven signs of aging, while also providing immediate color correction with tinted formulas that include UV protection and tone correction over time. The multiple, must-have instant and long-term benefits leave skin luminous and even-toned with the reduced appearance of discolorations, fine lines and wrinkles.

  5. I love your blunt “to the point approach.” It is not wishy washy and very informative. I recently have turned 40 and have noticed dry skin more prevelant than usual. I am hooked on organic skin care line Me & The Girl’s Alternative Beneficial Beauty. One of the best aspects is that it is not water-based and lasts forever. It melts into your skin like butter. It can be found at and the CEO and Founder is Sharon Hackney.
