Did you know that depending on your age, certain skincare products will be more effective than others? To get the best out of your products, I've put together a quick blog post to help you get the best skin possible no matter what your age!
Did you know that every seven years your skin renews itself? That's right, every seven years your skin cells change, meaning your skincare needs to change too!
Our skin can go from being oily and acne prone to dry and dehydrated in only a matter of years! Just think how different your skincare needs are now, compared to when you were a teenager! As we are often so busy, we may not even notice when it's time to reconsider the products we are using and decide whether they are still working effectively.
It's very rare for a skincare company to offer products for each of these seven year cycles, which is why I'm so excited that here at Nourished Life we stock the brand Weleda! Weleda has an amazing skincare philosophy that follows the seven year cycles and offers products that appeal to every age range!
From the time we are born to around 21 years of age our bodies are continuously developing in every way. There are changes in our self-awareness, relationships and of course emotions and physical appearance! All those hormonal imbalances that sneak in also create a higher chance of developing problematic skin that needs to be treated accordingly and we have an entire section of the site dedicated to controlling hormonal acne
During this time our skin is calling out for some moisture balance! Our hormones are still fluctuating, which makes reaching this balance even more important. Weleda's Iris Hydrating range is ideal for this age group as Iris is incredible at coping with too much or not enough water in the skin. These products help seal in moisture keeping skin intensely hydrated and stopping it from drying out!
Between the ages of 28 to 42 our skin needs to maintain balance and start focusing on regeneration. It is during this time when the first signs of ageing begin to appear. Visible signs of ageing, like laughter lines, can be helped with the Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing range. These products contain ingredients like rose-hip oil that counteract fine lines, dryness and dull skin. It promotes regeneration and elasticity in the skin, leaving you looking fresh and youthful!
During this age range we need to look for skincare that focuses on cell renewal and regeneration. The Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Care products are perfect as the 100% organic pomegranate seed oils promote skin renewal and firmness. This range enhances skin's vitality and has proven effective at fighting visible signs of ageing. Skincare that smells amazing and fights the effects of ageing? Incredible!
As we enter this period of our lives, nourishing our skin becomes very important! We need products that release our inner radiance, moisturise and retain elasticity of the skin. The Weleda Evening Primrose Age Revitalising range is specially targeted at this age bracket. The products are gentle and leave skin feeling velvety soft and smooth. Rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which can help plump skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
When we enter our 70s our skin goes full circle and becomes as delicate as a baby's. Meaning it's five times thinner than 'normal' adult skin! This makes Weleda's Calendula Baby Care range ideal for fragile skin. These products are milky, moisturising and leaves skin feeling soft and supple. Filled with calendula and chamomile extracts, they are perfect for ageing skin as they are so hydrating and smoothing!
When it comes to finding the right skincare, you should remember that these age ranges are to be taken only as a rough guide! You may fall into a different category than expected – and that's ok!
If you are looking for a generic cleansing range that caters to all ages, then Weleda has you covered as well! Their gentle cleansing products respect your skin's natural balance and leave it soft, clean and glowing. What more could you ask for!
