Skin of the Ages

Entirely too often I hear clients in their 40s and 50s say that they should probably start taking care of their skin now that they are getting older. The truth is, our skin starts showing signs of aging in our 20s. We start accumulating sun damage at the ripe age of eight! That’s right… eight. Essentially what happens is your DNA records sun damage that shows up in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and moisture loss which accumulates over time and shows up with a vengeance when we (ladies) hit menopause.

Here’s a literal breakdown of what we have to look forward to:

20s: Environmental damage and UV exposure begin to effect skin. Free radicals attack the skin’s structural integrity. Cell renewal and turnover rates begin to decline.

30s: In our 30s, collagen and elastin degrade, resulting in our first wrinkles. Cell renewal and turnover continue to decline, leading to a duller complexion and uneven skin tone.

40: By our 40s, the skin is thinner, barrier lipids are not as pronounced and dehydration can be an issue. More prominent signs of skin aging may also appear, such as dark spots and significant dullness.

50s+: The protective barrier lipid layer lessens, leading to less efficiency in retaining moisture and more potential for sensitivity and dehydration. Skin shows wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation.

But, DO NOT PANIC!!! Overnight Retinol Repair is here to salvage your skin! Overnight Retinol Repair is a powerful, microencapsulated form of active Retinol. Formulated with stabilized Vitamin C, Peptides and a clinically proven bioenergized Copper amino acid complex, Overnight Retinol Repair helps to reduce visible wrinkles, uneven skin tone and discoloration while improving skin firmness.
