And who can help you achieve healthy, glowing skin? Beautique Medical Spa – our go-to spot for all things skincare in McAllen, TX.
The Ultimate Dad-Guide for Healthy Aging Skin
Just like you, your skin changes over time, which means your skincare regimen needs to evolve too! Don’t worry though, keeping your skin glowing and healthy at any age is totally doable.
Dad Skincare in Your 20s
If you’re in your 20s, it’s the perfect time to start incorporating SPF into your daily routine. Not only does it protect against harmful UV rays that can lead to premature aging and skin cancer, but it also helps keep your skin looking youthful and fresh.
When applying SPF, don’t forget about the oft-neglected areas like your hands, neck, chest, and ears. These areas are just as vulnerable to sun damage as your face and need protection too! So make sure you’re liberally applying sunscreen every day before heading out into the sun – whether you’re going for a walk or sitting by a window at work.
One of our favorite SPF is SkinMedica’s Essential Defense Everyday Clear Broad Spectrum. Check out our other SPF options here. Having a cleanser appropriate for your specific skin type is also a must! To ensure that it effectively removes dirt and impurities without damaging or drying out your skin.
We have a great selection for you to pick from depending on your skin type – shop here!
Additionally, make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and get enough sleep each night to keep your skin hydrated from within.
Dad Skincare in Your 30s
As we move into our 30s, we start to see the consequences of all those years spent basking in the sun without proper protection, or neglecting our skincare routines. But don’t fret! One of the best ways to achieve vibrant and youthful skin at this point is by incorporating a chemical peel. They have been proven to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and even out skin tone. They stimulate collagen production, which helps to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant. You’ll not only rejuvenate sagging skin but also help prevent future damage.
Another important step in achieving an even complexion is by incorporating skin brightening products into your routine. Whether it’s a serum or moisturizer that contains vitamin C or alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), these products help to fade dark spots caused by sun damage or acne scars. By reducing uneven skin tone, you’ll be left with glowing and radiant-looking skin that will make you feel confident in your own skin.
A great exfoliator can also help with new skin cell turnover. While we have products available for everyday use sometimes it’s great to incorporate a deeper treatment such as a Microdermabrasion or Diamond Glow. They are both known to renew skin tone and texture while addressing concerns of sun damage, wrinkles, age spots, and acne scarring. They are both non-invasive and the best part is you won’t even need any downtime. You can head on back to work and resume your day.
Dad Skincare in Your 40-50s
Your skin may be at a decline in your 40s and 50s, but there are ways to combat this. As we age, our skin’s natural oil production slows down, causing it to dry out. This can lead to wrinkles and fine lines.
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to moisturize with anti-inflammatory ingredients. These will help reduce inflammation and irritation caused by environmental factors such as pollution or sun exposure. They also hydrate your skin from within, giving it a youthful glow. Our Rhonda Allison product line has several skin products that can help with this. Most of these products are made with antioxidants, plant stem cells, enzymes, and suitable for all skin types.
Besides our skincare line you should also be investing in dermal fillers and botox. These are great options that can help fill in deep wrinkles, sagging jawlines, skin folds in the neck and give you that contour. This along with a healthy and balanced lifestyle will keep you looking vibrant and refreshed.
But which one will be best for you?
Wrinkle relaxers such as Botox and Jeuveau will help wrinkles from progressing into deeper lines. You can treat your forehead lines, crow’s feet, neck wrinkles, lines around the mouth, and your frown lines. Depending on your metabolism and how your body processes our wrinkle relaxers, expect to get treated every 3 – 6 months. While it’s not permanent, it is a great way to combine with other Beautique Med Spa facial treatments for maintenance.
Dermal fillers are different from wrinkle relaxers. Fillers are meant to give back volume in your face. At about age 35 we start to notice these signs of aging under our eyes, cheek bones, and jawline. It’s natural and lucky for us – dermal fillers exist! We use fillers to fill in our under eye area, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.
Skincare in Your Golden Years
As we enter our golden years, our skin tends to become thinner and more delicate. It’s important to be mindful of this when it comes to exfoliating, especially if you’ve been using retinoids or glycolic acid. Opt for gentler products that will remove dead skin cells without causing damage. And don’t forget the SPF! Depending on your skin type, heavy creams may not be the best option as they can clog pores and make skin appear less firm. Instead, consider using oil-based moisturizers and anti-aging serums for a happy, healthy glow.
