What Happens to Skin at Different Stages of Aging?


What Happens to Skin at Different Stages of Aging?

Your skin is the largest organ in the body, and, just like everything else, it changes as we age. Not only does our skin change throughout our life, but it also requires extra skin care to handle these changes.The Teenage Years

Once someone hits their teenage years and puberty, the skin can go through quite a change. The hormonal changes with puberty can show themselves on the face, chest, back, and shoulders when sebum production increases, resulting in oily and acne-prone skin.

Many teenagers may find that their mood reflects the state of their acne breakouts, and severe breakouts may prevent them from spending time with friends.

During this stage, the goal is often to combat acne. Using a good cleanser that is not too harsh will help clear away bacteria without stripping away moisture.Late 20s

Genetics, environment, and lifestyle play a role in when the signs of aging commence, and for many people, this begins around age 25 with the appearance of fine lines.

In the late 20s, your skin starts to thin, which is why you develop fine lines. However, thinning skin is also less protective against UV, so adding daily sunscreen is essential if you haven’t already.

Your collagen mass and elastin levels also start to decrease around this stage. They continue to descend for the remainder of your life.

Some people may be embarrassed to develop wrinkles this early, but including a nightly retinoid in your skincare routine can help combat the early signs of wrinkles. Adding this to your routine can help prevent wrinkles and premature sun damage.

You may also spend many late nights out having fun in your twenties. It’s common to feel too tired when returning home to cleanse your face, which can lead to damaged skin and acne. Make sure always to remove your makeup and wash your face before going to sleep, no matter how late it is.Your 30s

While in your 30s, your skin produces less hyaluronic acid, and existing hyaluronic acid decreases, resulting in dryer skin. In addition, the metabolic processes of your cells begin to slow down, meaning your skin does not regenerate as fast as it used to. 

As your under-eye area develops dark circles or bags, consider adding a product that boosts collagen and elastin production to this sensitive area.40s to Late 50s

Over these two decades, the skin experiences many changes. The epidermis becomes thinner, resulting in rough and dry skin, areas of hyperpigmentation (age spots), and an increase in fine lines and wrinkles. 

Deep in the skin, there is also a loss in volume as water-binding abilities and fat compositions reduce. This loss leads to deep wrinkles.

Now is an excellent time to consider more concentrated skincare. RxESCUESKIN is beneficial, containing Human Bone Marrow Stem Cell Conditioned Media, vitamin C, and other powerful ingredients to help with skin brightness and texture.60s and 70s

A continued decrease in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid leads to dryness and deep wrinkles. Your skin is also more sensitive to UV light, creating a greater likelihood of age spots. 

Skin starts to become very dry at this point, so try a heavier hydrating cream day and night, especially if you are using a topical retinoid. RxESCUESKIN's ultra moisturizer is the way to go! Our new moisturizer has the most potent concentration of cellular actives on the market. You can try it for yourself, risk-free for 30 days!
