s SKIN CARE IT’S NEVER TOO SOON TO BE PROACTIVE ABOUT TAKING CARE OF YOUR SKIN. THE SKINCARE HABITS YOU START IN YOUR 20S WILL DETERMINE HOW MUCH DAMAGE REPAIR YOU’LL NEED TO DO IN YOUR 40S. BIGGEST PROBLEM: ACNE

Women in their 20s typically break out from using dehydrating products that strip skin of its natural oils. Oil glands then overproduce to make up for the depletion, which leads to acne flare-ups.

Skincare Must-Haves Cleanser First things first. The most important thing in your beauty arsenal should be a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser to remove excess dirt and oil. Use it both in the morning and at night before bed – especially after a night out on the town. Leaving makeup on overnight can clog pores and lead to acne.

Kiehl’s Gentle Foaming Cleanser

A gentle, non-drying foam face cleanser. Contains a mild, gentle surfactant to ensure a clean rinse that is non-drying. Fragrance-Free. $19.50, kiehl’s.com

Moisturizer with SPF The biggest mistake women in their 20s make is not protecting their skin. The sun damage you are collecting today will catch up with you a few years down the road in the form of brown age spots and even skin cancer. Use a hydrating or oil-free moisturizer with an SPF of 30 or higher that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Slather it on your face, neck and décolletage after washing your face in the morning.

Philosophy Hope In a Jar Oil-Free SPF 30

An ultra-light daily moisturizer for normal to oily skin with SPF 30. This gentle, fast-absorbing daytime lotion provides optimal hydration to revitalize skin and strengthen its natural moisture barrier, while preventing sun damage. $42, philosophy.com


Retinol It’s never too early to incorporate retinol into your nightly skincare routine. Derived from Vitamin-A, it helps stimulate collagen production and prevent breakouts. Start with an OTC night cream that includes retinol to get your skin acclimated, then move on to a prescription-strength product like Retin-A. Apply it over under the eyes as well in place of a separate eye product.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion This lightweight lotion is formulated with apple stem cells to help delay the natural signs of aging. Simultaneously, retinol stimulates new cell turnover and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. $60, drbrandtskincare.com


Optional Products Eye cream The eyes tend to reveal the first signs of aging, so it would be smart to start taking care of them now. Choose a product with caffeine to reduce morning puffiness.

Origins No Puffery Cooling Roll-On for Puffy Eyes

This incredibly cooling roll on treatment with yeast extract instantly helps de-pouf puffs as it brightens dark circles. $25, origins.com Serum Before applying your favorite moisturizer, slather on a serum packed with antioxidants for early collagen protection and damage prevention.

Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum

This lightweight serum feeds your skin with vitamins and antioxidants, moisturizes with fatty acid-packed plant oils, and smoothes fine lines with peptides, alpha lipoic acid and CoQ10. $45, juicebeauty.com

Med Spa Treatments Chemical peels Gently exfoliate the top layer of skin to get rid of acne, even pigmentation, and renew your fresh skin cells for a healthy glow. Laser hair removal Get rid of unwanted hair while you’re young, and save yourself time and money later.

s BEAUTY MAKEUP MUSTS

TINTED MOISTURIZER

Chances are you don’t need a heavy base, so opt for a sheer tinted moisturizer with SPF instead. It will keep your skin supple throughout the day while providing light coverage.

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 This advanced, oil-free formula provides a translucent veil of color and sun protection while helping to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in just four weeks. $42, narscosmetics.com

BLOTTING PAPER

Using a loose mineral powder to set your makeup in the morning is a must for 20-somethings, but cut out the pressed powder touchups you do throughout the day. Powder can clog pores; use blotting paper to soak up any extra oil instead.

Bobbi Brown Blotting Papers

These powder-free tissues absorb excess oil and perspirationfrom skin. $20, bobbibrowncosmetics.com

BEAUTY TIPS

1 2 3 4 5

All the blow-drying, straightening, and styling you do in your 20s can eventually dry out your hair and make it break. Minimize the damage with an ionic dryer and ceramic styling tools that are easier on your hair. For additional protection, spray on a heat protection product before primping. Hair follicles are still productive in your 20s, so now is the time to grow longer, stronger hair that can potentially last a lifetime. Don’t wait until you hit 30 to cut out sugary drinks like soda and iced tea. Start learning to love water now, and get a jumpstart on healthy, hydrated skin. Trust us – floss religiously now and save yourself countless dentist appointments later. Flossing lowers the risk of gum disease, which has been linked to heart disease and cancer.

Eyebrow maintenance is nothing to take lightly. Now is the time

to start taming your brows with the help of an expert who knows better than to overshape or cut off too much length.


“DON’T BE AFRAID TO EXPERIMENT WITH NEW WORKOUT PROGRAMS.”

s FITNESS

YOUR 20s ARE PRIME TIME for new challenges and experiences because your body is still resilient and can recover more quickly. While many 20-somethings cardio binge on the treadmill or elliptical machine, you will actually get better overall health results by mixing in some weight training and a couple of yoga or barre classes each week as well. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new workout programs like aerial fitness or join a co-ed flag football or volleyball league to have fun, stay fit and meet new people.

WEEKLY FITNESS PRESCRIPTION: STRENGTH TRAINING 1-2 days of 30-minute strength training sessions to build muscle definition and increase bone density. Lift enough weight that you struggle with your last few reps, but not so much that you can’t get even through the first set of 15. CARDIO 2-3 days of 45-60 minute cardio sessions or aerobic classes to burn fat and build endurance. CORE 1-2 yoga classes to strengthen your core and lower back while you sculpt killer abs.

s SKIN CARE SO YOU’VE ENTERED YOUR 30S… THE BIGGEST CHANGES YOU ARE LIKELY NOTICING ARE THINNER, DRIER SKIN AND MORE NOTICEABLE EXPRESSION LINES AROUND THE EYES, MOUTH, AND ON THE FOREHEAD. CELL TURNOVER HAS LIKELY BEGUN TO SLOW, SO YOUR COMPLEXION MAY APPEAR DULL. BIGGEST PROBLEM: DULL COMPLEXION

Once you hit 30, you begin to lose collagen and cell turnover starts to slow, so your complexion may appear dull from lingering dead skin cells.

Skincare Must-Haves

Cleanser A good cleanser is just as important now as it was in your 20s, although you may need to switch your go-to for one that is pH balanced and formulated for drier skin. Fragrance- and alcoholfree are always good options, and a gentle, creamy cleanser may be just what your skin is craving.

Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Cleanser and makeup remover in one with wheat amino acids and vitamins A, C and E. Soap-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free and fragrance-free. $32, peterthomasroth.com

Moisturizer with SPF A really good moisturizer helps to replenish moisture and nutrients your cleanser might have stripped away. Choose one with antiaging additives that help reduce fine lines and restore elasticity.

Laura Mercier Repair Day Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen

This advanced anti-aging daily moisturizer helps repair skin, for a smoother, radiant, younger looking complexion while providing environmental protection. $98, lauramercier.com


Retinoid It’s time to get serious. Once you hit 30, retinoid products are no longer optional. The anti-acne benefits they afforded you in your 20s will be replaced by the anti-aging properties they offer now. Increase your usage to four or five nights a week to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and even your skin’s texture.

SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5

Helps stimulate cell regeneration and build collagen to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots from both photo- and intrinsic aging. $57, skinceuticals.com

Masks It seems there are masks these days that do just about everything from detoxifying to moisturizing skin, but the one you need is purifying. Find a clay option to deeply clean pores and balance your natural oils.

Exfoliator This is the decade where you need to add an extra step to your cleansing routine. Exfoliating dead skin cells will help clear them, brightening your skin and clearing the way for new cells to regenerate. Either substitute your moisturizing evening cleanser for one with alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and gentle, synthetic microbeads, or pick up a skin-cleansing product like Clarisonic. Avoid harsh scrubs that can cause even more damage.

Clarisonic ARIA

Facial sonic cleansing with a harmonic blend of function and form. $199, clarisonic.com

Kora Organics Clay Purifying Mask

A purifying and cleansing mask especially formulated to gently detox, purify and refine the texture of the skin. Containing natural clay to rebalance sebum excretion, draw impurities and refine and cleanse pores. $53, Koraorganics.com

Eye cream If you didn’t bust out the eye cream before, now is the time. For dry skin around the eyes, choose a product with hyaluronic acid. For dark circles, hydroquinone is key ingredient, as are brightening botanicals like licorice or soy.

Dermalogica Ultrasmoothing Eye Serum

This powerful treatment fluid contains an advanced peptide known to encourage collagen-producing activities to help smooth fine lines and target the signs of aging around the delicate eye area. $50, dermalogica.com

Ser um An anti-aging serum’s main purpose is to protect the skin by delivering a punch of powerful antioxidants that enhance the absorption of your night cream or moisturizer. Shelter your skin from daytime damage by combining an antioxidant-infused serum with green tea or vitamin C with your moisturizer with SPF.

Eminence Green Tea & Guava Fortifying Serum Antioxidant-rich green tea nourishes and protects as guava juice and honey replenish moisture. Its Biocomplex formula works to fortify and strengthen, improving texture and tone for a healthy, revitalized look and feel. $48, dermstore.com


Med Spa Treatments

Fillers & Injectables Many women in their 30s turn to Botox®, Restylane®, or other brands of injectables or cosmetic fillers to treat their emerging Crow’s feet and frown lines.

Microdermabrasion Sometimes your at-home exfoliation efforts may not be enough. To increase the potency of the retinoids and AHAs in your night cream and cleanser, schedule a microdermabrasion treatment to help boost their effects. This gentle polishing of the skin with microcrystals will help remove dead skin cells and oil buildup, in addition to treating wrinkles.

BEAUTY TIPS

1 2 3 4 5

Eliminating sugar from your diet may seem like an exercise

in torture, but your skin will thank you! Sugar causes collagen damage, which can lead to wrinkles.

Now more than ever, it is important to get plenty of sleep to give your cells time to renew and refresh overnight.

Exercising is one thing you can’t afford to cut out of your

weekly schedule. It will keep your body healthy and keep you active as the years pass by.

Thinking about cutting your hair short? Think again! Chopping your hair reveals parts of your face that have been covered for years. Instead, covet a shoulder-length cut with layers and long bangs to lessen the appearance of forehead lines. Hair thinning? Go for a hair gloss that boosts volume and whisks away dullness.

s FITNESS WOMEN IN THEIR 40s are typically more

centered, have more confidence, and may even have more energy than they did in their younger years. Unfortunately, with age and wisdom also come a slower metabolism, decreased muscle mass and an increase in body fat, especially in the midsection. Exercise at this stage in life should be more about feeling healthy in body

and mind than looking good, although that always helps. The good news is you don’t have to stick to running or cardio machines to get a great mind/ body workout. Dancing, swimming, biking and other more entertaining and lower impact forms of exercise work just as well.

WEEKLY FITNESS PRESCRIPTION: CARDIO 3-4 45-minute low-impact, short interval cardio sessions will help alleviate stress, improve sleep quality, and fight weight gain. Try a dance class or water aerobics. STRENGTH TRAINING 2-3 60-minute sessions. Book a personal training session or take a weight training class at first to make sure you don’t hurt yourself and optimize your efforts. The key now is form and control, not number of reps. CORE Pilates can help blast unwanted fat in the tummy area, while also keeping joints limber and muscles strong.

Your eyes one of your best features, so why not make them stand out? Lose the harsh liquid liner and opt for a softer eye pencil instead, then make your peepers pop by choosing a complimentary eyeshadow Rich browns and golds work with all eye colors.

As we age, our lips tend to thin and lose color and definition. If you are over 50, pair a neutral lip liner with a cream lipstick slightly darker than your natural color to define the lips. Top with a little gloss to give the illusion of plumpness.

These richly hued pencils are formulated to mimic the ultra-soft texture of the Indian eye darkener of the same name. The luscious formula glides on perfectly, without dragging across the fragile skin of the eye area. $18, stilacosmetics.com

BEAUTY TIPS

Get regular skin cancer checkups, especially if you have fair skin.

Moisturize! Look for skincare, body and makeup products that contain hyaluronic acid and other moisturizing ingredients.

Run an ice cube over your face every night before bed to keep wrinkles, fat cells, and acne under control. Your hands are the only parts of the body aside from your face that are constantly exposed. Show them a little love by investing in a good repairing hand treatment. When you don’t have time to hit the salon, hide stray grey hairs with mascara for dark hair and bronzing powder for blonde or red locks.

50

+ FITNESS YOUR 50s AND BEYOND is a time to focus on strengthening both your body and mind. More now than ever, posture and alignment should become a major focal point of our exercise efforts as our bone density decreases and muscle mass and tone dwindles.

WEEKLY FITNESS PRESCRIPTION: CARDIO 4-5 30-minute cardio sessions each week. Many fitness gurus advocate the 10,000 steps (5 miles) a day program for this age group. Walking is low impact and keeps you active and moving each day. STRENGTH TRAINING 2 30-minute sessions of weight training doing more reps with less weight. CORE Stretching is vital for keeping your flexibility. Pilates and yoga classes will help your body stay strong, lean and aligned.

One fantastic form of exercise that helps increase focus while also helping with balance and alignment is tai chi, one of the Chinese martial arts. Enrolling in a tai chi class once or twice a week is a great way to work on your posture and mental acuity.
