The Importance of Skin Care As You Age

Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Nearby Areas of Arizona

Skin is the body’s largest defense against infections and bacteria. Therefore, keeping your skin healthy should be made a priority, if not for aesthetic reasons, then for your own health. Regardless, taking care of your skin as you age is incredibly important; and although wrinkles and fine lines are inevitable, the team at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery can help impede their development.

It’s never too late to start a good, cleansing skincare regimen; a little effort, quality products and guidance from a trained professional goes a long way. Additionally, one of the best things you can add to your skincare routine is a daily application of SPF 15 or higher to protect against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Studies have shown that roughly 90 percent of the skin’s wrinkles, dark spots and wrinkles have come from unprotected exposure to the sun. So, in an effort to combat these unfortunate skincare side effects, lather up!

Building a regimen that is meant for your skin type is crucial because it reduces your chances of unexpected breakouts (acne), allergic reactions and infections. Plus, it helps slow down the skin’s aging process because you’re applying ingredients that compliment it, rather than complicate it.

While on the topic of skin type, certain points in your life call for different kinds of anti-aging skincare regimens. The anti-aging skincare ingredient retinol is great for men and women in their late 30s and beyond, but not so great for people in their early 20s. On the flipside, ingredients like Vitamin C and green tea extract are great for people in their 20s, but are not strong enough for people in their 30s, 40s and 50s.

Committing to a regimen, applying SPF, seeing a professional, and buying skincare products that agree with your skin type are all important as you age.
