You can get fine lines from seemingly everything in life. If you are exposed to the sun, pollution, or smoke; you can get fine lines. If you have a familial trend of getting fine lines or if you’re reaching a certain age, you may notice fine lines forming on your face. With so many, inevitable causes of fine lines, it might seem like it’s impossible to prevent them, but not quite.
The easiest and best way to prevent fine lines is to manage the amount of time you spend in the sun. For the reasons mentioned above, the sun is by far the most damaging.
Fighting Those Fine Lines at Different Ages
Your 20s: In your 20s, preventing the first signs of aging such as slight wrinkles around the eye area, as well as acne issues are the main concerns. Women in their 20s should begin a more targeted skincare routine with a nourishing, antioxidant-rich cleanser, toner, moisturizer, eye crème and facial scrub. Exfoliating at least once a week is a good idea.
Your 30s: In your 30s, you will start to see even more age damage such as fine lines, wrinkles and skin tone irregularities. Dry, dehydrated skin tends to accentuate fine lines and wrinkles, so choosing ingredients that maximize moisture are key.
Your 40s : The 40s are when you really start to begin to see more fine lines, wrinkles and now more obvious brown spots and other skin irregularities. Skin dryness also increases, at this stage, it is essential to choose rich moisturizing formulas that contain very powerful and effective antioxidants help protect skin from environmental stress, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, soothe inflammation, even skin tone, improve texture and elasticity, and optimize the overall health of the skin.
Your 50s: In your 50s, many people start to have sagging skin that is most noticeable on the face, neck and around the jaw line; this is the result of loss of integrity of the collagen elastin fibers in the skin. As we age, these fibers lengthen and loosen. Skin sags and becomes thinner. Ingredients that support the health of collagen elastin fibers. DMAE (Dimethylethanolamine) and vitamin C are what you want to see in your skincare for firmness issues.
