Facials for all ages

At 25, 35, 45 and 55, what are the best skincare routines for perfect skin ?

TIP
1

25: enhance your complexion

When you're in your twenties, you dream of a perfect, peachy complexion. But you may have blemishes, dull skin and the first signs of fine lines. Choose a 'skin perfecting' product that smooths and reduces fine lines, leaving your skin radiant. Look for products that are hydrating and enriched with LHA (beta-lipohydroxy acid) and Perlite. They'll leave your skin hydrated, smoother and softer.

35: hydration & dealing with your first wrinkles

The amount of collagen in the skin starts to decrease at 35. The first little expression wrinkles start to appear and you begin to lose elasticity. Tackle the problem by keeping the skin hydrated, and choose a specific treatment for wrinkles. Collagen and hyaluronic acid are the key ingredients to look out for to smooth away lines, hydrate the skin and preserve its elasticity.

45: attack wrinkles

At 45, cell renewal slows down. Wrinkles are more noticeable, your skin loses its tone, and facial contours start lose their shape. But don't panic! Get yourself an anti-wrinkle skincare treatment containing retinol, to stimulate cell renewal. The result: wrinkles are reduced and the skin becomes more elastic.

55: tackle the loss of volume

From 55, the skin becomes dry, due to a lack of lipids on its surface. The signs of ageing become more noticeable. Your skin needs to nourished, hydrated and filled out. Choose a skincare product enriched with retinol, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, pro-xylane and/or calcium. Calcium has powerful anti-ageing properties, which strengthen the skin's barrier. Wrinkles are reduced, your skin becomes firmer and your face has more volume.

For all ages

Whatever your age, the holy trinity of skincare is hydration + exfoliation + sun protection. Hydration is the first step towards perfect skin; load it with moisture to keep it supple. Exfoliate gently once a week to remove dead skin cells from the surface and keep your skin clear and radiant. Final point: sun protection. UV rays are the primary cause for premature skin ageing. Whenever you're outside, use skincare products containing an SPF.
