Before it's too late: facial skin care after 35 years

Many perceive this figure as a kind of milestone. In the “before” life, one could sometimes forget to wash off cosmetics before going to bed, neglect moisturizing care in the morning - and, in general, no disaster happened. In life "after" a person will no longer forgive such carelessness. Facial care after 35 should be more careful and deliberate.

Features of facial skin after 35 years

“In youth, a lot gets away with it - the skin does not cause any particular problems, and care and creams seem to be something like a pleasant addition to the daily routine,” says Vichy expert, cosmetologist Ekaterina Turubara .

But at about 35 (and sometimes at 30) we begin to notice that the skin becomes "somehow not like that":

  • It is no longer so elastic and resilient (hello, pillow marks in the morning);
  • wrinkles begin to appear on it - "crow's feet" and creases on the forehead, nasolabial folds are especially noticeable;
  • after a stormy night, bruises under the eyes are inevitable ;
  • there may be a tendency to pigmentation;
  • the skin becomes drier.

An absolute plus - acne , comedones and inflammation appear on her less often than in her youth , she no longer needs such active cleansing. But at the same time, the skin becomes more sensitive and less protected against aggressive environmental factors - wind, sun, temperature extremes, etc.

Below we will tell you how to properly care for your face after 35 at home and with the help of cosmetic procedures.

The composition of cosmetics for the face with marking 35+

What to look for in creams, serums, fluids, balms and masks if you are already 35 years old? Of course, first of all:

  • Moisturizing ingredients - hyaluronic acid , glycerin , thermal water, urea , plant extracts (for example, aloe vera , green tea), oils ( argan , shea , olive and others). “Hydrating care is perhaps the most valuable thing we can give to the skin at any age,” says Vichy expert, cosmetologist Ekaterina Turubara. - Moisture restores tone and turgor, the skin instantly appears denser and more elastic. In addition, hydro-fixing components retain moisture in the skin ”.

  • Antioxidants - vitamins C , E , resveratrol , baicalin, zinc , selenium, ferulic acid and others - neutralize the action of free radicals. We are constantly faced with the latter. Their number grows when we are nervous, sick, "hang out" in a smartphone, eat sweets, spend too much time in the sun. By fighting free radicals and winning, antioxidants prevent the aging process.

  • Anti-aging components - of course, antioxidants and hydrofixers also belong to them, but here we mean primarily those that stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin. These are peptides , resveratrol , proteins (the same collagen), sugars (most often rhamnose is included in cosmetics).
