How Do My Skin Care Needs Change Over Time?

July 4, 2017 Team AHAVA

You’ve likely noticed that your skin is not the same as it was five or 10 years ago. That’s because it changes as you age. Not surprisingly, this means you can’t treat your skin the same way you did a decade ago and expect the same results. This is why you need to keep the following facts in mind when it comes to treating your skin the right way at every age.

 

In Your Teens

The hormones in your body during your teenage years often cause skin to become oily, leading to blackheads or even severe acne. During this time of your life, it’s important to clean your facial skin every day, especially after working out and before going to bed. You can find lots of cleansers on the market that can keep your skin clean and healthy. For example, AHAVA's All-In-One Toning Cleanser is perfect for removing dirt and other impurities as well as your makeup. Of course, some teenagers struggle with dry skin, in which case you should follow up your cleansing ritual with moisturizer, such as the Essential Day Moisturizer.

 

In Your 20s

As you get into your 20s, your skin may look the best it ever has, and yet your hormones can still negatively affect it just as they did during your teens. This is why many women get zits right before their period starts, as testosterone takes over and increases oil production. To combat this, you can get rid of excess oil and help prevent acne by using a mask a few times a week. This Purifying Mud Mask, for example, can absorb excess oil on the skin.

In Your 30s

Soon after you turn 30, you might notice that your skin is no longer too oily. Instead, it may become somewhat dry and thin as your estrogen levels start dropping. If you want to avoid dryness, put on a moisturizer before bed, such as the Night Replenisher. If your skin seems thinner than usual, try this Uplift Night Cream to increase elasticity in the skin while you sleep.

 

In Your 40s

You’ll notice the skin problems from your 30s getting worse in your 40s, all thanks to the reduction of estrogen in your body. This means your skin will continue to feel dry, thin and less firm than before. Now is the time to take advantage of the many anti-aging products available, such as Extreme Night Treatment, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and make your skin look firmer.

50 and Older

Now that you're 50, testosterone is changing your facial skin more than ever. This means you have less collagen in your skin, making it look saggy, wrinkled, and possibly inflamed or sun damaged. Fortunately, you have access to the Beauty Before Age lineup of products, including creams that are meant to increase the elasticity and smoothness of the skin as you age.

Regardless of your age or the state of your skin right now, you can rest assured there’s at least one AHAVA product for you. Check out our entire collection of products today so you can treat your skin right.
