How men should care for skin through the decades

- - No comments
We run through the most effective ways to care for your skin in your 20s, 30s and 40s and beyond.
Did you know that as you age your skin requires targeted treatment and care specific to your age? We focus on the 20s, 30s and 40s and beyond for the best possible skin care.
Yes, you’re at peak physically, and signs of ageing might not even be showing – lucky you! – but it’s no reason to neglect skin care. Trust us. Start now, before your skin starts changing to delay signs of ageing later on. Luckily, the requirements are basic. Cleanse, exfoliate one a week and moisturise and SPF (very NB) daily. Men in their 20s generally have oilier skin than women, so look for oil-fighting cleansers (to keep dirt and sebum off your face) and oil-free moisturisers (to seal in moisture and prevent wrinkles in the future). If you suffer from acne and breakouts, opt for treatments containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.

By now you should already have a well-established skin routine of cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating and SPF-ing. But your 30s requires a little more focus and targeted treatment. Your 30s sees a decline in the rate of cell turnover, which leads to a drier and duller complexion. Add a serum with active ingredients like peptides, antioxidants and vitamins into your daily routine. These added ingredients help stimulate cell turnover. The skin around your eyes will start to crinkle, thin and darken so incorporating an eye cream packed with heavy-hitting ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol and vitamin C will help with these symptoms. Your skin in your 40s will thank you for using masks in your 30s. They’re known to deliver concentrated ingredients to your skin, targeting specific concerns and areas. Because masks sit on your skin for longer, the ingredients will penetrate deeply, benefitting you even more.

Your 40-year-old skin will definitely show if you’ve been taking good care of it for the last 20 years. If not, although it’s never too late, your cell turnover rate is at its lowest and collagen production too will be slow. Your whole 40s should be concerned with fighting the visible signs of ageing, meaning your routine should include powerful antioxidants and retinoids to help with collagen production skin texture. Hydration is also crucial from here on out. Switch to a thicker, richer moisturiser or hydrating serum. Use overnight creams to amplify the natural night-time repairing process and make regular use of masks packed with active ingredients.
