We all know that the skin is the largest organ of our body and protects all the internal organs. It is the first thing someone sees when they look at you. Thus, whatever your age, taking good care of the skin and protecting it from all external factors is essential.

Let us look at some of the skincare facts everyone should know.

1. You start aging at 20

Of course, the 20s are known as the time of youthful skin and vitality. But do you know that you start aging as you reach your 20s?

Once you hit 25, your collagen levels can slowly deplete, which might result in the appearance of sagging skin and the onset of fine lines. Antioxidants such as Vitamin C can help maintain healthy-looking skin.

2. Genetics don’t determine how your skin ages.

Many people attribute how quickly their skin ages to their genetics. But do you know that external factors also play a huge role in skin aging?

Sun exposure can account for almost 90 per cent of premature aging. Other factors, such as pollution and smoking, can also affect how quickly your skin ages.

3. You can switch skin types.

Have you noticed your skin types changing from oily to dry when you hit your 40s? Yes, this can happen. Internal factors like hormonal imbalance and age and external factors like climate change can cause your skin to change type.

Thus, it is imperative to use the right oil, depending on your skin type.

 

4. It is not normal for your skin to feel tight after cleansing.

Does your skin become too dry after cleansing? Then, the cleansing product you are using is too harsh. After using a cleanser, your skin should not only be clean but should also be soft and supple.

The Gentle Cleanser Duo is what you need to get soft, clean skin. This cleansing duo comes with a gentle oil cleanser and a soothing cream cleanser that hydrates and cleanses your skin without harming it.

5. Dry skin and dehydrated skin are not the same thing.

Dry skin is how the skin naturally operates. It requires constant hydration to keep its youthful look and glow.

Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, is a condition caused by a lack of water, insufficient fluid intake, heat, and excessive sweating.

Environmental pollutants can dry out skin continuously. Thus, it would be good to incorporate hyaluronic acid, which can hold 1,000 times its weight in water.

The Dream Cream Duo is a good choice for dry skin. It consists of a firming day cream and a nourishing night cream that firms and nourishes your skin throughout.

6. Wearing sunscreen all the time protects against aging.

Do you think that sunscreen is only meant to protect your skin from UV rays? Then you're mistaken. Wearing sunscreen all the time can also protect your skin from aging.

If you’re worried that sunscreen will make your skin break out, choose a formula packed with zinc. These products are usually non-greasy and non-irritating, making them ideal for acne-prone or sensitive skin.

7. Wearing sunglasses protects against Crow’s Feet.

When you squint in the sun, crow’s feet wrinkles are more likely to develop. So, always wear sunglasses with UV protection on a sunny day.

Those with light-coloured eyes are more prone to risk, but brown-eyed beauties should pop on the sunnies too. You can also use the Restorative Eye Cream to prevent wrinkles around the eyes.

8. Sleeping can give you wrinkles.

Sleep is good for you as it helps your body repair and rebuild. Nevertheless, if you sleep on your side or your stomach, you could apply pressure to your face. This can contribute to the appearance of wrinkles. Thus, you should consider your sleeping position to avoid wrinkle formation.

It goes without saying that you should pay more attention to your skincare as you age. Selecting the right skincare product can improve antioxidants on the skin, boost collagen levels and provide you with bright and radiant skin.
