Every new decade brings an opportunity to not only evolve our self-care practices, but to also embrace the changes we see in the mirror. And how do we meet an ever-changing face with self-love while bringing the wellness wisdom we’ve collected along the way into each new era?
We believe committing to your skincare ritual as you mature is an act of self-care. If you’re looking for skincare mantras to live by and ways to love and nurture your skin at every age, you’ve come to the right place.
Skincare That Spans the Decades
So, what skincare should you be doing regardless of age?
To brighten the skin and reveal your radiance, we love liquid exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids, which gently dissolve dead skin while smoothing and refining texture. Both our serums, Glow Serum and Spot Check have a patented TriDroxy Acid Blend® of lactic, glycolic and phytic acids to keep your complexion glowing.
And no matter your age, don’t forget to apply sunscreen everyday.
Your twenties are all about preventative care. The way you care for your skin by implementing good habits now means having better skin in the future.
When it comes to skin, the number one concern is occasional breakouts. If you’re dealing with occasional breakouts and a congested complexion, try a deeply purifying mask like our Mystic Mask. Packed with kaolin clay and niacinamide, it cleanses, tones and soothes the skin.
After detoxifying skin, follow up with a hydrating moisturizer like our Quench Crème, packed with bakuchiol and a rich, botanical lipid blend.
When you’re in your youth, less is more! Embrace slight imperfections and let your natural, youthful glow shine through.
In your thirties, we recommend adjusting your skincare ritual to be more intentional. We love implementing a morning ritual to set an intention for the day and then having a different nighttime that helps you unwind and prioritize mindfulness.
As time passes, you’ll also notice some physical changes in the body and on the skin. For example, hormonal changes can cause diminished sebum production, making the skin drier and duller.
Vitamin C will help bring back your glow and reveal a brighter complexion. Rotate Glow Serum into your ritual two or three times a week to give you luminous, smooth skin. Antioxidants are a key addition to your beauty routine once you begin your thirties to protect your skin from typical oxidation stress, so an antioxidant-rich product is a must.
Your thirties are also the time to include a nighttime treatment, such as retinol or a naturally-derived retinol alternative like bakuchiol (both of which are found in our Retinol Reset) to refine and resurface skin texture.
While some women feel like they’re just starting to hit their stride in life (we love to see it), their skin can be changing yet again, bringing hormonal complexity in flux and leading to new effects on the skin, but don't let these changes get in the way or hinder your glow.
One of the ways to maintain your radiance is to use two different antioxidant serums and alternate them. You'll get a wider benefit from switching off because different antioxidants address the appearance of different skin concerns.
As we age, the eyes are generally the first place to show signs of fine lines because the skin is super delicate and thin in that area. Choose an eye serum, like our Eye Elixir, that has a rich formula with antioxidants to brighten, hydrate, and reduce the appearance of puffiness in the under eyes. Our Eye Elixir also has caffeine to give you that instant refreshed look.
Your 50s and Beyond
A few wrinkles here and there are simply signs of a life well-lived. We’re all about embracing skin as it matures and harnessing the power of nature to rejuvenate the complexion.
Once you hit your 60s and 70s, issues that arose in your 50s become more pronounced. Cell turnover is slower, and the most significant change you'll notice in your complexion is age-related dryness and loss of elasticity. So, the goal is to focus on extra hydration and promoting moisture and firmness.
Gently cleanse the skin morning and night, then make sure to always moisturize well with our Quench Crème to help skin retain its elasticity, bounce, and radiance.
There’s wisdom in repetition and building better habits. By being mindful of that wisdom, you’ll discover that your ideal skincare ritual is less about which specific products to use and more about simply making time for yourself.
Of course, the right products will help you along the way, but a healthy lifestyle will make all the difference. Be sure to nourish yourself by indulging in all forms of self-care, like getting enough rest and eating wholesome foods. Striving to age gracefully means embracing a few imperfections while maintaining your lifelong glow, proving you can reveal your Tru radiance at any age.
