3 Changes To Make To Your Skincare Routine As You Age

Get your fix of wellness and things that inspire us.

Simple shifts can make a big difference

As we age, our bodies naturally go through a few shifts – we lose collagen, which results in a lack of elasticity, and our skin can start to feel and look a little less radiant than it once did. So it makes sense that the skincare routine you established back in your early 20s might also require a few tweaks accordingly, to continue to support your skin and address any current concerns you may be experiencing now.

Your skin requires more than just stocking up on an entirely new regime of expensive creams or treatments to counteract the course of time. Thankfully there are a number of small, simple changes you can make to your everyday routine that will assist your skin in the long term, without demanding an overhaul.

Prioritise hydration

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that as we get older, our skin needs a little extra boost when it comes to hydration. To keep moisture locked in to your complexion, enlist products with skin-quenching ingredients, such as a hyaluronic acid serum, or opt for a nourishing oil-based cleanser instead of your usual gel formula. Call in reinforcements with a deeply restorative face mask once or twice per week too.

Support your skin from within

Of course, the simplest way to ensure your skin and body are well cared for as you age is to start supporting your skincare with a potent beauty supplement. High-quality ingestible supplements that are carefully designed to nourish and balance your body from the inside out can help you achieve clearer skin that glows with health. Start your beauty-through-wellness journey by adding The Super Elixir – our iconic greens powder – into water or your smoothie each morning, and feel the difference in days.

Up the exfoliation

Skin cell turnover is key to a healthy, youthful visage, but it begins to slow down over time. This means that dead skin cells stick around far longer than they ought to, leading your skin to look dull. Revive the glow by increasing your exfoliation, using either a physical scrub or a liquid exfoliator with AHA’s. After a few weeks of consistent use, your skin will look smoother, your tone will improve and as a bonus? The rest of your skincare will absorb much better.
