Your Best Skin Care Routine By Decade — From 20s to 40s & Beyond

Your Best Skin Care Routine By Decade — From 20s to 40s & Beyond

Taking care of your skin is an essential part of self-care, but you may be wondering where to begin. The best skin care routine by decade — whether you’re in your 20s or your 50s — starts with targeted skin care products and works best paired with a recommended treatment schedule. The combination of the right products and services is what will lead you to your best skin. Here’s what the experts at OVME recommend — broken down decade by decade.

The Best Skin Care Routine For Your 20s: Establishing A Regimen

Your 20s are all about prejuvenation. Having a medical-grade cleanser and moisturizer helps your skin stay blemish-free  and hydrated. It’s also time to build a skin care routine and treatment schedule that works for your skin type. At your OVME consultation, you’ll get a customized plan for your recommended services.

Antioxidants like vitamins C and E brighten the skin while preventing daily UV damage. Sunscreen is by far the most important investment you can make in your skin at an early age to stave off wrinkles, sun spots, and overall damage that happens — daily use is paramount. If you’re playing the long game though, regular  OVME Hydrafacials are an excellent treatment for maintaining hydrated skin that’s bright and clear.

The Best Skin Care Routine For Your 30s: Prevention is Key

Your 30s are a great time to expand on your routine by incorporating retinol, which gives skin a more plump appearance by exfoliating and increasing collagen production. Pro tip: daily sunscreen application of 30 SPF or higher is a must once retinol enters the picture.

This is also the perfect time to start treatments that help increase cellular turnover, as regeneration more noticeably slows in your 30s. OVME’s suite of services to consider here include chemical peels, RF micro-needling, and laser photo facials that can also treat skin discoloration. 

And for prejuvenation, using neurotoxins to address fine lines in your 30s can help prevent deeper wrinkles in your 40s.

The Best Skin Care Routine For Your 40s: Focusing on Firmness and Volume

Maintaining and restoring firmness is a natural focus in this decade due to skin’s gradual loss of elasticity and volume. This may result in more pronounced wrinkles and noticeable volume loss in the cheeks, lips, mouth, or undereye areas. You can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with regular Botox or Dysport, which will also prevent deeper wrinkles from forming. 

Plus, any sun damage that has accumulated over the last few decades starts to show up, sometimes as melasma. It’s also a great time to invest in OVME laser resurfacing — the holy grail of skin treatments for dramatically rejuvenating skin. This treatment increases collagen and elastin production and promotes cellular turnover. 

Like any good skin care routine, targeting these specific concerns works best when using both quality products and skin treatments. Here’s what you need to do:

Say Yes to Serums

Boost your routine with a serum to deliver concentrated active ingredients deep into the skin. Many serums do double duty, featuring ingredients like vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and retinol, which target fine lines, dark spots, and dullness. 

Restore Volume with Fillers

Restore fullness to  your skin with the help of fillers, which use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring substance in your skin and body that improves hydration. Volume loss around the lower face area, known as  “parentheses” or jowls, can improve dramatically with dermal fillers. Lip filler is a great option for restoring lost lip volume and reducing fine lines around the lips. How long does lip filler last? The great news is that lip filler can  last up to 12 months, depending on how your body metabolizes the filler. 

The Best Skin Care Routine For Your 50s & Beyond: Retention is Essential

Your 50s and beyond are all about retention. That is, the retention of your skin’s moisture and elasticity that naturally declines over time. The result is a visible loss of moisture and volume on the face. Your skin might also be more sensitive and age spots may become more prominent. 

Services like dermal fillers and neurotoxins like Botox or Dysport do wonders for reducing wrinkles and sagging skin,, but laser maintenance is a game changer here. And if you haven’t yet tried an under eye PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment, this is such an added bonus to treatments like OVME’s RF microneedling to improve skin texture and tone using radiofrequency energy.

The Best Skin Care Routine For Your 60s & Beyond: Stick To Your Schedule

Beyond your 50s, continue to focus on hydration at home with your favorite moisturizers and serums.  Our team members can guide you to the best skin care products for your skin. And be sure to schedule OVME collagen-boosting treatments like laser resurfacing and RF microneedling at least three times a year.
