Age-wise facial guide

The sun, dirt, grime, pollution, stress - they're all taking a toll on your skin. You may not immediately realise it, but over time it shows. Dehydration due to sun causes fine lines and pigmentation. You could also face breakouts and suffer from blackheads. Hence, it's essential to follow a facial routine that's right for you.

Happy 20s

At 20, most men and women are just starting to get rid of teenage acne and working towards clearer skin. A monthly visit to the spa for a clean up can help delay the ageing process. Go for something herbal and light that provides a moisturising treatment to balance the skin. Ingredients like fresh ginger, turmeric, mint leaves along with tangerine, cucumber and honey can help. A fruit moisturiser treatment can also be beneficial and will exfoliate, moisturise and soften the skin. Ensure that you use all organic and natural products.

Trying 30s

This is the age when your skin starts to change. A facial should rebalance the hydration, balance the sebum and moisturise and improve your complexion. Opt for a facial that includes a gentle massage which will relieve tension. An exfoliating substance will help clear out dead skin cells and should be finished off with a hydrating mask.

Essential 40s

Those with mature skin, aged 40 and above, should be careful of what they use. , cleanse your skin thoroughly and then use a light fruit based gel or cream. Steam can be harmful for older skin. Instead, use a face pack of cold milk, cucumber juices, papaya or even mashed banana according to your skin type.

Handy tips

No matter your age, there are certain ingredients that can work wonders. A light skin polishing that uniformly clears dead skin cells is recommended. Try out a de-stressing aloe vera facial massage that removes impurities and rejuvenates the skin. Always go for fresh fruit, rose, marigold and jasmine based masks that add a radiant glow to the skin.
