healthy skin at every age

A pro-active approach, whether you're 13 or 60, is how healthy skin remains beautiful skin. Follow these tips from Annet King, Director of Global Education at Dermalogica.

Skin will still produce a good amount of sebum (oil) and will have a healthy cell turnover of about every 14-25 days. Breakouts may still be an issue, and you might start seeing fine lines around the eyes.

Skin is an excellent record keeper. Sunbathing, smoking, late nights and cocktails seem like a fun idea now, but that starlet lifestyle will show up on your skin 10 years from now.

skin in its 30s

Starting with your 30th birthday, collagen production slows by 1% every year. Cell turnover slows to 30 days, which can lead to dehydration and dryness. Signs of past sun damage may start to show (age spots or brown spots), and fine lines around the eyes may be visible. Step up exfoliation to resurface as skin renewal slows, and start to feed skin with age-fighting ingredients to maintain a healthy glow.

  • Banish dull, dehydrated skin with Daily Resurfacer, a hydrating, skin brightening exfoliant that helps combat fine lines and hyperpigmentation 
  • Treat uneven skin tone (age spots/hyperpigmentation) with C-12 Pure Bright Serum.
  • Start using MultiVitamin Power Firm around the eyes to firm, smooth and shield against further damage.
  • Add a more powerful moisturizer with age-fighting benefits to your regimen. Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 encourages skin firmness and shields against photoaging induced by UV damage.

Hormonal changes can trigger dryness and sensitization or rosacea. Wrinkles, age spots and uneven skin tone become more prominent in more zones of the face as cell turnover and collagen production slow. It's time to call on intense ingredients including peptides, antioxidant vitamins and Retinol to stimulate collagen production, repair damage, firm and shield – and maintain radiance!

  • Switch to a dual-action exfoliating cleanser, such as Skin Resurfacing CleanserSkin Resurfacing Cleanser, to increase penetration of active ingredients and smooth skin.
  • Use a vitamin-packed treatment beneath your moisturizer for added skin recovery and defense. MultiVitamin Power Serum is a favorite!
  • Make Power Rich™ your moisturizer of choice. This maximum intensity treatment helps firm, increase elasticity, hydrate, and smooth away fine lines.
  • Treat multiple eye area concerns, primarily wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles and hyperpigmentation, and dehydration with Age Reversal Eye Complex containing the power of Retinol.
