Skincare Tips for 20, 30 and 40 Year Olds
Host: We’re here on the anti aging lab with Liz and we have three great guests today and why? Because we’re going to address the unique skin needs of women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s and beyond the 40s too. What happens to our skin with aging, take a look at this; you know where the skin is our largest organ. It’s made of multiple layers of tissue, of cells, the epidermis and the dermis. What happens over age actually that skin layer thins, it looses moisture, and it looses those key constituents in the dermis, the collagen and your elastin. They’re no longer tightly bundled but loose that disruption, all that leads too dryness, cracking, wrinkling and ultimately loosing elasticity so things fall. Does that sound wonderful?
Female: No, no.
Host: You don’t have to worry about that quite yet, you’re in your 20s and I look at you and you really don’t have wrinkles. What's bothering you with your skin?
Female: My under eye circles, they’ve just always been like that and I just don’t know what to do.
Host: I think the best way for her to start would be getting an alpha hydroxyl acid type product doing local. These are light peels which are particularly good for pigmentation changes. In your 20s a thing to remember is protection, you have to wear your sunscreen, make sure you take care of your skin, moisturize every night and try some alpha hydroxyl.
Female: The 20s are a great time also to experiment with home remedies and to deal with your dark circles you might want to try a little bit of mint paste which you can just ground up a few mint leaves and I’m going to do it right here as a nice cooling effect from the mint right and then also do circulation to the area, so this is a nice thing for you to try. Leave it on for about 15 or 20 minutes, it feels refreshing.
Host: They don’t want to go outside like that.
Female: It smells good, it’s cooling and it boost circulation to the area, so everything is going to plump up.
Host: You probably put some of that in your Mojito right? All right, we’re going to age ten years here, we’re going to move on to our 30s, are you ready? So what we see now and I don’t mean to pick on you here is but ten years later we’re starting to get some fine lines. Your skins in pretty good shape actually but you are starting to get some fine lines. What I would recommend is getting involved in vitamin C and vitamin E products that contain antioxidants. Antioxidants are going to fight those free radicals that are making those changes in the dermis of your skin. I think Liz is helping you right there and vitamin C is a natural weak acid, you actually are going to get some exfoliation with that and you’re going to get a reaction into the dermis stimulate some collagens formation.
Female: And you can put that in your dinner and or put a little bit of the spice in your moisturizer, perfect.
Host: I did not know that. All right, moving on with Kelly, how are you? So now we’re talking about 40s, a little beyond even but ten years later here on Kelly, more lines, more darkness under the eyelids. Things have settled a little bit, so in your 40s you really need to get on a prescription type retinoid product that’s related to vitamin a and what it does is stimulate the dermis to form your own collagen, your own elastin and you will actually get exfoliation.
Female: Do I have to do everything that they do?
Host: Well maybe a little bit of lifting and plumping with that but the gravitational changes, those gravitational changes you have to see your plastic surgeon on those.
