March into Spring and Look Healthy at ANY Age

Healthy Skin at EVERY Age

And now a few words from the amazing folks at Eucerin who ALWAYS have the health of your skin in mind . . .

Healthy looking skin is beautiful, no matter what your age. The three words that best describe healthy skin are hydrated, clear and glowing. Hydrated, well moisturized skin is the result of the hydrolipid film maintaining the right amount of moisture balance in the skin.  Clear skin is free of clogged pores and dry patches.  Glowing skin has a healthy blood supply carrying lots of oxygen and other nutrients to skin.  Learn what you can do at any age to help make sure your skin looks its best:

  • In your 20s… You are most likely to establish the habits that will stay with you throughout your life, so incorporating preventative steps is key. Stay away from tanning beds and if you’re a smoker, quit now. Most wrinkles are caused by sun exposure and smoking. By avoiding both, in your later years your skin will appear much younger and healthier than a smoker or sun-worshipper.  Apply a daily moisturizer with a broad spectrum SPF 15+ all over your face, neck and chest daily to help keep your skin protected from incidental sun exposure. Get a free sample of one here.
  • In your 30s… Skin becomes thinner and finer, there’s some loss of collagen, and cell turnover has begun to slow down, making your complexion look a little dull. The key is to get moving, so if you needed another reason to hit the gym, here it is: your skin. Physical activity maintains the health of tiny blood vessels in the skin so they can supply adequate blood and oxygen. This helps provide skin with a healthy glow and also aids in the production of collagen. Exercise also helps balance out hormones like testosterone that contribute to acne. In fact, the stress-reducing benefit of exercise is beneficial to maintaining and improving skin health. Start incorporating an anti-wrinkle crème into your skin routine!

  • In your 40s…Your skin begins losing elasticity, and retains less moisture so it is important to add a moisturizer into your skin routine. Moisturizers bind water to the skin so it doesn’t evaporate as quickly.Think of them as the lid topping a pot of simmering water. The result: a softer and more elastic stratum corneum with optimal protective properties. Remember to drink plenty of water and keep your diet high in antioxidants!  If skin becomes dry and itchy, utilize calming crèmes and lotions to soothe skin and fight the dryness.

  • In your 50s and beyond… Many of us focus only on the skin on our face and neck but your hands deserve just as much attention, if not more.  Your hands encounter the harsh elements every day, from the extremely hot water of the kitchen sink to the freezing and drying winter winds.  All of this exposure can wear on your skin’s protection and repair systems.  Damaged, cracked and dry hands are more likely to develop dermatitis, or eczema.  Look for a hand moisturizer like Eucerin’s Intensive Repair Hand Crème to repair and protect dry, rough hands.

It is important at every age to visit a dermatologist once a year. If you don’t have one, take use of Eucerin’s Find a Derm Facebook Application to find one in your area and make an appointment. To find out more about what products you should be using at any age visit our Skindicator quiz to receive a personalized recommendation from our Skin First Dermatologists.

 Although I’m not as well-versed in skin care as our friends from Eucerin, I’m going to throw some my skin care recommendations in for good measure and to pretend like I’m an expert . . .

  • Don’t smoke. Yuck. It may sound good after drink #5, but there is absolutely NOTHING good about it. Your lungs AND your skin will thank you from refraining.
  • Stay hydrated – inside and out. Yes, I know the warm sun feels soooo good (and I love it too) just be sure that your worship-ritual includes lots of SPF and drinking LOTS of water.
  • Keep your plate colorful. It’s true that the more colorful your plate, the more healthy your intake of it’s contents. Bright orange foods such as Cheetos and Doritos do not apply. Whole foods, bright colors for a healthy bod that will radiate through your skin!

Eucerin’s Skindicator App has shown me a world of great options for putting the specific needs of my skin first – now it’s your turn.

    I like you and Eucerin on Facebook as Mary Happymommy. I should start wearing sunscreen during the winter months. I love Eucerin daily protection moisturizing body lotion…I use it everyday and it has helped clear up my son’s eczema.

    Like you both on FB. I would like to start to add more cream and anti-aging products into skin care routines. Eucerin Calming Body Wash Daily Shower Oil is my favorite product, it takes great care of my dry skin especially during winter time.

    Liked both you and Eucerin on Facebook as Lisa Brown. I would like to try and remember to exfoliate my skin. I always forget, and my skin feels like sandpaper, if I don’t. The Aquaphor Ointment is my favorite, I keep it around always. It treats the flaking of my dry skin and eczema.
