What Age Should You Actually Start a Skincare Regimen?

You're born with it, and you'll have it your entire life. It's your skin. Your skin is as unique as you are. It's a part of you, and, just like you, it has good days and bad days. Your skin will also go through phases as you grow and change. At different stages in your life, your skin will need slightly different nutrients and care products so that you can enjoy that glowy, dewy skin you deserve. But at what age should you actually start a skincare regimen? Keep reading to see a breakdown of how every age group should care for their skin.


In your teens, the ups and downs of everyday life seem like unbearable extremes, but your skincare regimen doesn't have to be a mess. That's right, you should start taking care of your skin in your teen years.

Hormonal changes and stress can cause breakouts and fluctuations in your skin's texture and moisture level. In your teens, you can support your skin's natural resilience by washing your face once or twice daily with a gentle cleanser. After cleansing, use a moisturizer that provides a good balance of nutrition for the skin and ingredients that support your skin's moisture barrier. In the daytime, follow up with a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. You can use a mild salicylic acid product at night if you're dealing with breakouts.

Early 20's

Once you hit your early 20's, you should already have a strong skincare regimen in place from your teen years. You should continue using a gentle routine focusing on the three main steps of cleansing, treating, and moisturizing and always use sunscreen during the day, even if the weather is cloudy. But, at this stage in your life, you can expand your skincare regimen by adding in weekly exfoliation with a product that has fruit acids such as AHAs and BHAs or lactic acid.

If you live in a harsh environment and you feel like your skin gets dull quickly, you can also begin to use a  Vitamin C serum once a day. Vitamin C is a powerful ingredient that boosts your skin's natural radiance and helps you reveal a glowing complexion. Use serums after cleansing and before you use a moisturizer.

Late 20's-30's

Aging is a natural and beautiful process, and you may start to notice the beginning of fine lines in your late 20's and throughout your 30s. At this point in your skincare regimen, you can add products that use key ingredients that slow these signs of aging down. You can start using products with minimal retinol in your 30s to help your skin maintain elasticity and a youthful glow. Niacinamide is also a great ingredient to include in your regimen.

It also becomes even more important to use sunscreen in your 20s and 30s, because the damaging UVA and UVB rays from the sun will impact your skin very quickly if you don't protect it. You might also want to focus heavily on hydration as you get into your 30s so that you can preserve your dewy complexion. Using a  hyaluronic acid serum can give you that moisture boost you desire, and you can use it daily.

Small Batch Serums

40's and Above

As you reach the prime of your life, it's important to invest in your skin. Ingredients such as  CoQ10, collagen, and retinol will play important roles in your regimen once you reach your 40's. Also, it's time to turn back to those gentle cleansers that you'd give to your teenage self right about now. You can pair a gentle cleanser with an antioxidant treatment and a facial for extra hydration and nutrition. And remember, never skimp on sunscreen.

Skincare doesn't have to be complicated to be effective. Take care of your skin with pure and high-quality serums and feel good in the skin you're in.
