Pro-ageing in your 30s
Navigating breakouts, pigmentation, and the first signs of aging, your 30s call for a proactive skincare approach. Embrace retinol, AHAs, tranexamic acid, Kojic acid, and Vitamin C to for tackling pigmentation, and daily sunscreen as a defense against aging. She underscores the importance of building healthy habits, scheduling annual skin exams, managing stress, establishing a good sleep routine, and limiting alcohol and refined sugars. Prioritize sun protection, establish healthy habits, manage stress, and consider in-office procedures like laser treatments and neurotoxins. It's time to invest in your skin's future resilience! Investing in your skin now will set the stage for graceful aging.
Pro-ageing in your 40’s
As visible effects of aging become more apparent, especially for perimenopausal women, Dr. Dolder suggests focusing on skincare ingredients scientifically proven to provide results, such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides, B5 for hydration, and retinol, growth factors, and peptides for collagen stimulation. She advocates for reducing inflammation through an antioxidant-rich diet and considering bioavailable collagen supplements. In-office dermatology procedures like fillers, Botox, and energy-based treatments become crucial for maintaining skin health.
