Skin care routine according to your age

Your skin gets affected as you become older however, there are certain signs that reflect how much care you are giving to your skin at each and different stage of your life. Thus, if your skin appears to be pale or have white lines and early signs of older skin, or blisters or pimples or other skin problems means that your skin is not getting the care it needs. Skin care starts by physical and mental wellness so your diet system should be healthy and your day should be stress free. 

Skin care routine for your 20s:

In this age your skin has just come out of its adolescence to enter its maturity stage where the rules for skin care have changed and have become more particular. Although you are still young at this age neglecting your skin may cause the appearance of wrinkles earlier than expected.

This phase is considered to be the most important for skin care because the skin starts to be more sensitive to external factors. Thus, caring for your skin at this early age will prolong its youth and vitality and will protect it from exhaustion and fatigue which may happen due to growing older.  This is not to suggest the use of cosmetics products designed for women 30 years old and over, instead we recommend to follow a number of preventive steps to maintain the skin and protected from having white lines and wrinkles. However, the skin during this age is more than capable of rejuvenating itself and does have sufficient amount of collagen to keeps it firm, so getting wrinkles is very rare incidence to happen. What it actually need is continuous cleansing and moisturising to keep it supple and vibrant.


The skin must be gently cleansed twice a day on a daily basis using suitable cosmetics made with organic natural oils and chemical free. Also use the appropriate moisturising cream that suits your skin type. So if your skin is greasy use a cream designed for greasy skin that contains no oils. And if your skin type is dry use a cream made with natural ingredients as chemicals may irritate the dry skin. It is recommended to follow a daily and weekly routine based on your skin type. 

Skin exfoliation:

We do not mean by skin exfoliation doing an operation to peel off a layer of the skin with glycolic acid by a dermatologist, what we actually mean here is simply the use of a facial wash that has the exfoliating feature to it. This can be used 1 to 3 time a month to help remove dead skin cells. 


Moisturising is a very helpful practice to protect your skin from external factors. You are advised to choose a moisturiser low in oils to be used on daily basis. Also make sure it contains fine flowers such as Yang, Roses and Jasmine. 

The diet system:

Adopting a healthy diet system is the first step to skincare. So it should contain all the elements that your skin needs especially vitamin C. Moreover, the diet system should contain anti-oxidant rich type of food such as coloured fruits which defend the skin cells to maintain its health and softness. Therefore, your diet system should contain the following:

  • Fruit salad made with dark coloured fruits such as plums, cherries and mulberry.
  • Vegetable salad made of Roka, Avocado, tomato, and Cabbages red and white.
  • Boiled broccoli, carrots and courgettes at dinner.
  • It is also recommended to drink green tea before bedtime.

Preventive care routine:

  • Skin cleansing.
  • Applying sun blocker to protect the skin and prevent early wrinkles.
  • Avoid exposing the skin for long hours to sun rays.
  • Cleansing the skin after getting back to home, and ensuring there is no remaining of any dust or grease residue to block the skin and cause pimples to develop.
  • Make sure to keep vitamin D at its natural level as any deficiency in it would harm your skin. Therefore it is recommended to take vitamin D supplement along with other important vitamins.
  • Although many girls favour getting a sun tan it is actually very harmful to the skin. Therefore, it is strongly advised to apply a sun blocker cream and use natural skin lightening recipes. It is also recommended to wash your face with fresh lemon juice and leave it for 3 to 5 minutes and then rinse it with lukewarm water twice a week.
  • Make sure to visit your dermatologist from time to time to make sure your skin is in perfect condition and only do skin peeling if the dermatologist finds it necessary.   


Removing the makeup:

Although, the makeup may improve the look of the face, but it can be very harmful to the skin if it stays on for too long and is not removed before bedtime. Makeup can kill the cells of the skin and prevent disable its cell renewal ability. It also work on blocking the skin pores and cause the development of pimples.

Therefore, dermatologists strongly advice not to keep the makeup on the face for long period of time and not to remove it with tissues or removal creams that contain chemical compounds that can disturb the PH balance in the skin and cause wrinkles and early aging syndrome. This is why experts recommend the use of liquid based makeup removal to gently remove the makeup.

One of the useful practices that experts recommends after removing the makeup is to remove the remaining grease residue of the removal cream with a wet cotton pad dipped in rose water to refresh and lift the skin and to close the pores to prevent the accumulation of fragments and germs.
