Aging by the Decades
30's: What you're battling
Competing demands on you in your 30's take their toll here. Stress triggers the secretion of sebum under your skin, which promotes bacterial growth that turns into pimples. You may also start to see fine lines near your eyes where skin creases more readily. Try an eye cream to smooth and even out the skin.
40's: What you're battling
Tiny lines appear around the eyes and the forehead, and crow's-feet start to set in. Broken capillaries or brown spots may show up on the cheeks, and pores may look larger. Try moisturizers with collagen as they tighten skin by stimulating collagen production.
50's: What you're battling
In the 50's women have about one-tenth of the estrogen they have had as an adult up to that point. Since estrogen stimulates both collagen and oil production, that dramatic loss shows up as very dry skin. Cracks begin to appear, along with age spots, and fat loss in your face contributes to skin sagging. Try moisturizers with collagen as they tighten skin by stimulating collagen production as well as moisturizers with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA). Beneficial to all age groups and skin types.
