Your Best Skin at Every Age: How Our Skin's Needs Change With Age

As we age, our skin's needs change. By focusing on moisture, sun protection and antioxidants, we can help our skin age gracefully.

Aging is a beautiful, and inevitable, process that comes with wisdom, maturity, and a wealth of experiences. It also brings about changes in our bodies, and our skin is no exception. Understanding these changes can help us better appreciate our skin and take care of it as we age.

The Outer Layer: Epidermis

As we age, the rate at which our skin cells regenerate decreases. The result? The epidermis, our skin's outermost layer, becomes thinner. This can lead to the skin looking paler and more translucent. You might also start to notice age spots or small areas of pigmentation caused by exposure to the sun over time.

The Middle Layer: Dermis

In the dermis, changes are driven by the reduction of two crucial proteins: collagen and elastin. Collagen provides our skin with its firmness while elastin grants it elasticity. As we age and the production of these proteins slows down, the skin loses some of its elasticity and firmness, which can lead to wrinkles and fine lines.

The Deepest Layer: Subcutaneous Tissue

Subcutaneous tissue is the deepest layer of our skin. It's responsible for keeping us warm and providing padding to protect our bones and muscles. As we age, we lose some of this fat padding, which can lead to the skin sagging and the appearance of more pronounced wrinkles.


As we age, our skin tends to become drier. This is due to a decrease in the oil and sweat gland activities, reducing the skin's natural moisturizing ability. You might find your skin feeling less smooth or possibly even irritated at times.

Caring for Aging Skin

As we get older, it's even more important than ever to properly care for our skin. Here are some simple tips for your best skin at every age:

 1. Moisturize: Moisturizing regularly can help to combat dryness and keep your skin feeling smooth and healthy.

For intense hydration: Dream Cream Nighttime Moisturizer

2. Sun Protection: Protecting your skin from the sun is important at any age, but even more so as we get older. Always use a sunscreen with a high level of SPF when you go outside. 

For ultimate sun protection: Solardrops SPF 55 Daily Broad Spectrum Serum

3. Healthy Diet & Hydration: Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins can nourish your skin from within. Don't forget to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water! 

For antioxidant-rich nutrients: Golden State Nourishing Facial Oil

4. Gentle Skincare Routine: As your skin becomes more delicate, consider using gentler products. Avoid harsh soaps and skincare products that can irritate your skin.

For a extra gentle cleanse: Clean Slate Barrier Boosting Cleanser

Remember that aging is a journey that brings about change, not just in our lives but also in our skin. By understanding these changes, we can embrace them and take the right steps to keep our skin looking and feeling its best. After all, every crease and laugh line tells a story, and each one is worth celebrating.
