Healthy Skin in the New Year

Experts weigh in on ways to keep skin soft and clear in 2023

As we kick off 2023, trying to find the best ways to put focus on health & well-being, including good skincare, is vital. We asked two area skincare professionals to weigh in on how to keep healthy skin all year.

What are some tips you can offer to help maintain healthy skin? 

Always wash off your makeup—never go to bed with it on. Be sure you are deep cleansing each morning and night and use SPF daily. Do not ever pick at blemishes or blackheads. 

Different age groups need to focus on different skincare regimens. What are your suggestions?

In your 20s & 30s:

  1. Regular facials and quality skincare products keep you looking fresh and young.
  2. My biggest tip is to use SPF every day, all day. 

In your 40s & 50s:

  1. Increase sleep and lower stress.
  2. One of the most noticeable changes will be a decrease in collagen and elastin, so add those to your daily regimen.  

In your 60s and beyond:

  1. Keep your makeup light and bright.
  2. Wash your face twice daily, using soft wash rags, followed by applying ample SPF.
  3. Drink plenty of water.
  4. Use quality skincare products.

The desert air can be brutal. What are some of the best ways to keep skin looking fresh and healthy? 

Look for products that have ingredients that are rich and deeply moisturizing. Apply a good body lotion while your skin is damp. Also, consider sleeping with a humidifier. You’ll notice a difference immediately. 

Different age groups need to focus on different skincare regimens. What are your suggestions for each age?

In your 20s & 30s:

  1. Stick to the basics, including sunscreen, with an SPF of at least 30.
  2. Introduce your skin to retinol, especially if you are acne prone.
  3. Consider adding an exfoliant such as glycolic acid.
  4. Use a thick eye cream at night, as that area is often the first to show signs of poor skin health.

In your 40s & 50s:

  1. Hormonal changes may affect your skin, including losing some elasticity. The most important thing you can do is apply sunscreen diligently. Sun exposure is the leading cause of damage and aging, so protecting your skin from UV rays is crucial. 
  2. It's essential to have a great vitamin C serum in your morning routine. Vitamin C has anti-aging and photoprotective effects.

In your 60s & beyond:

Your skincare routines from now on should always include nourishment, collagen production, moisturizing, and wearing sunscreen. Choose products with ceramides and hyaluronic acid. It's not about looking younger but about achieving healthy skin.
