Gorgeous Skin in Your 20s, 30s and 40s

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

Skin care can be overwhelming. There are many products on the market, and a number of brands that claim to provide results.

Technology advances very quickly in the beauty business. New ingredients are introduced that offer better results. If you haven’t changed brands or switched up your routine in five years – or longer – it is time to do so.

Your skin changes with each decade, and that means new issues and new ways to deal with them. Besides eating lots of antioxidant-rich foods, like green tea and blueberries, and drinking a lot of water, there are a few key products that you can use to look your best.

Ask Ellen

Q: hi! as a beauty reader that enjoys your blog very much I have a question for you. Whilst going through shoppers drug I happened to notice the Reversa 3-1 Cleanser stuck down below and well hidden away. My question is this I am having problems finding anything about this product and because I need to change the skincare routine I am using (being older you need to change products because they become less effective as you age, I am 53) do know anything about this line? thankx shazza

A: Well thanks Shazza for your question. It is true that your skin is a little different than from your 40s. In your 50s skin starts to show character. As you enter menopause, your skin may feel thinner and more fragile. You may notice more wrinkles and a paler overall skin tone.
Some tips are:
- Hydration is so important. Use a rich, protective moisturizer. Apply a nutrient rich night cream before bed.
- Use a creamy cleanser to assist in hydration of the skin.
- Exfoliate to clear dead skin cells but avoid harsh abrasives.

With regards to Reversa, this brand is manufactured in Canada by Dermtek Pharmaceuticals Ltd and is available at drugstores. I have never tried these products but did some research and everything I read was good. Here is an article I found written by Karen Hall, a well respected journalist. I even found that the Reversa Corrective Night Cream was one one of the top 100 best in Chatelaine’s 2006 Best of Beauty.

Other skincare lines you may wish to take a look at are:

L’Oreal Age Perfect
Olay Regenerist
Dermaglow Nuvectin and
Vichy Liftactiv
