Your Morning Skin Care Routine Depends So Much On This One Uncontrollable Factor

By wochit 15 November 2016

When it comes to skin care, there are two rules to remember: Persistence is key, and timing is everything. New York City–based dermatologist Dendy Engelman says, "I always say that at 20 years old you've got the skin you were born with, but at 50 you get the skin you deserve." In other words, making a few smart tweaks at the right time can make a huge difference in how you age. Here, her game-changing strategy for a healthy, glowing complexion—now and forever. If you're in your twenties, use a skin-type specific cleanser, add antioxidants, and use sunscreen every single day--no matter what. In your thirties? Switch out your cleanser for a toner, exfoliate those dead skin cells off regularly, and start using eye cream. And once you hit your forties--well, this is the decade where past skin mistakes catch up to us and expose themselves in tons of heinous ways—from sun spots and fine lines to sagging skin. While it may take in-office treatments to completely reverse all signs of damage, using a multitasking serum full of ingredients that work double duty can help a lot. Add a few drops of face oil, and switch to a skin-plumping cream with ceramides, which can "help replenish natural lipids and prevent water loss." Engelman says an easy solution for waking up more luminous and dewy is to slap on a hydrating overnight mask and get some solid beauty sleep.
