How To Build an Anti-Aging Skincare Regimen for Every Decade of Your Life

We tell you what happens to your skin in your 30s, 40s, and 50s and everything you need to stay youthful and fresh throughout the years.
How To Build an Anti-Aging Skincare Regimen for Every Decade of Your Life

In your 30s

What happens

At this age, the body starts to reduce its natural production of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid (HAs), elastin and collagen—elements that are vital to skin rejuvenation. HAs and collagen work hand-in-hand to regulate moisture, while elastin maintains the skin elasticity and tone. Antioxidants, on the other hand, battle the effects of air pollutants, cigarettes, UV rays, and more.

In your 30s, fine lines begin to appear on the forehead, around the outer corners of the eyes, and between your brows. During this decade, it also takes longer to recover from late nights as well as prolonged exposure to the sun.

Things to remember

Take note that smoking wreaks havoc on your skin by slowing down collagen and HA production, canceling out the effects of skincare treatments. Following a healthy lifestyle like mantaining a good diet, exercising, and getting enough rest, however, helps keep the skin healthy and youthful. If you haven’t started on a skincare regimen, now is a good time to play catch up. Use the correct products for your skin condition, type, and age to reverse signs of aging.

Key products

Load up on products with antioxidants, like Vitamin C, which prevents damage caused by UV rays and pollution. With the onset of drier skin comes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles so moisturizers will be your best ally.

Battle the signs of aging with help from HA-rich solutions or creams for volume maintenance, moisture, and smoothness. You might want to try the Fillerina Day Cream, which contains coconut oil and antibacterial properties to prevent and manage breakouts, vitamin E to smoothen out rough surfaces, and SPF 15. Use this with the Fillerina Night Cream, which has wheat germ oil for healing and moisturizing, shea butter to keep skin smooth, sweet almond oil to remove debris and dirt, and rosehip seed oil which tackles sun damage, spots, and more. 

Both products have FIllerina’s patented 6-HA cocktail. This signature blend is the only one of its kind with varying weights to allow the creams’ ingredients to reach the skin’s inner layers without the use of injections.

In your 40s

What happens

It’s in your 40s that the skincare sins you’ve committed in your 20s and 30s begin to show—from beach days basking in the sun to the unprotected strolls on the streets. Your pores become more prominent, your skin shows sagging, and pigmentations begin to surface. 

Things to remember

A good skin treatment, daily maintenance, and improvement are the keywords in this decade of your life. Trips to the dermatologist, a healthy lifestyle, along with a strict skincare regimen are recommended.

Key products

Choose products wisely. Remember that key moisturizing agents do wonders for dry skin. Again, look for products that contain HAs, which can restore moisture; peptides that promote collagen production; and retinoids, which smoothen the complexion. 

You can find all these ingredients in Fillerina's 14-day Filler Treatment and Maintenance Creams. You can also level up by using the more intense Grade 2 Fillerina 14-day Filler Treatment with the Fillerina Day Cream and Fillerina Night Cream to extend the treatment’s benefits.

Are you a smoker? If yes, you’ll probably notice a slight retraction and wrinkling on your lips and deeper crow’s feet on the sides of your eyes. To address this, try the Fillerina Eye & Lip Contour Cream. It’s perfect for women in their 40s with its mixture of shea butter, rice bran oil, and sweet almond oil to ease away those lines.

If you haven’t started, now is the time to address your aging lips with lip creams that hydrate and replenish to promote suppleness and smoothness. 

In your 50s

What happens

The fats on the face diminish at this stage, causing skin and facial muscles to sag. The cheeks and eyes also appear to be more hollow, adding years to your actual age.

Things to remember

Along with the right skin care products, bank on exercise and a healthy diet to keep your youthful countenance.

Key products

At this age, sunscreens are indispensable along with the right moisturizers. Try Fillerina’s Day and Night Cream as well as its Eye & Lip Contour Cream. You can also try the Grade 3 Fillerina 14-day Filler Treatment which can help add volume to sagging skin by filling in those unwanted lines and wrinkles. It will keep your skin moisturized and hydrated, too.

An All-Around Solution

Hyaluronic acid is celebrated as one of the beauty world’s most promising ingredients with its ability to retain moisture. It is the core ingredient in Fillerina’s range of anti-aging products which are also infused with a unique cocktail of six hardworking HAs with varying weights—the only one of its kind in the market today.

HAs, together with hardworking ingredients that keep the skin's even tone and elasticity, provide results that are natural-looking yet noticeable. Fillerina’s product portfolio also boasts of solutions specifically formulated for the different areas of the face, including the sensitive skin around the eyes and the lips, most of which are available in different grades to address various levels of skin conditions.
