How should skin care be according to age?



Nowadays, with the influence of social media, the desire to look young and “beautiful” has become more common than ever. As such, the aesthetic concerns that started at a very early age have also lowered the age of makeup.

Acıbadem Kadıköy Hospital Dermatology Specialist Dr. Mehtap Kıdır explained the tips of skin care since the 20s, gave information about the applications for skin rejuvenation, gave important warnings and suggestions.

In the 20s, the synthesis of the collagen protein in the skin begins to slow down, resulting in slight wrinkles and fine lines on the skin. With simple applications to be made at this age, we can invest in our skin for advanced ages. Daily skin cleansing, weekly peels, using sunscreen, avoiding solarium and sunbathing, using moisturizers and serums containing vitamin C and hyaluronic acid are simple measures that can be done. While vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, protects against free radicals that damage the skin, creams containing vitamin C increase elasticity by triggering natural collagen production, while removing fine lines and contributing to the elimination of tonal differences on the skin.

In our 30s, the moisture level of our skin begins to decrease, fine lines on the skin begin to become apparent and pores begin to widen. The dryness of the skin causes the skin color to appear dull and dull. The first signs of aging start around the eyes. It is important to use creams containing intense moisturizer for the eye area and to apply products containing vitamin C that increase collagen synthesis on the face and neck. In the evening, use creams containing retinoic acid and glycolic acid, which increase collagen synthesis. Although the starting age of botox for fine wrinkles varies from person to person, it is useful to start with small doses in the 30s.

With the 40s, collagen production in the skin rapidly decreases. Since sagging occurs on the skin, skin care needs to be done intensely and regularly. It is useful to use anti aging creams and intensive moisturizing products containing anti-aging retinoic acid in the 40s. Take care to consume foods containing collagen, vitamin C and omega 3-6 to replace the collagen lost by the skin. While doing skin care in your 40s, do not neglect to apply care to your neck and hands. Methods such as microneedling, needle radiofrequency, laser applications and mesotherapy (giving nutritional vitamins and various supplements under the skin) that stimulate the middle layer of the skin at these ages also help the production of collagen and elastin in the skin.

In the 50s, due to the reduced subcutaneous fat tissue, especially in the cheek area, volume loss is experienced and the skin sags. As the age progresses, wear and collapse occur in the jawbone, cheekbone, temple and forehead bone. Dermatology Specialist Dr. Mehtap Kıdır “Filling applications can be used to restore these areas to their former fullness. A more natural appearance can be obtained when the treatment is planned with the logic of always replacing the missing in order to preserve the natural appearance. According to the cosmetic application schedule created by your dermatologist, cellular treatments such as PRP, stem cells, and subcutaneous injections of products containing intense hyaluronic acid, also known as moisture vaccine, can be planned annually. These applications not only provide moisture to the skin, but also help shine, elasticity and tightening, ”he says.

Dermatology Specialist Dr. Mehtap Kıdır “The purpose of skin care applications is to contribute to a pleasant appearance of the face with small touches. Avoiding unnatural, exaggerated applications is very important for the validity of the application. Because an artificial and exaggerated face that has lost its naturalness will not be liked by anyone. Skin care and rejuvenation methods should be done and planned under the control of a physician. Remember, the goal should not be to be someone else, but to return to the way you were a few years ago, ”he warns.
