Welcome to Klog Chat, a series where we ask you to tell us how you do skin care and beauty. Here, we want you to share your biggest questions about skin care as you age. What are you most confused about when it comes “anti-aging” skin care products and procedures?
“Anti-aging” is an interesting concept in skin care. Here at The Klog, we don’t subscribe to the belief that you should be against aging or try to prevent it from happening. Aging is beautiful, and getting older makes you a stronger, more knowledgeable, and in our humble opinion, a more beautiful person.
But that’s not to say that we aren’t intrigued by products that contain ingredients that claim to soften the look of fine lines and products that can help brighten and plump up our complexion. Bottom line, we’re looking for the best ways to keep our skin looking and feeling healthy as we get older and not products that will make us look 15 years younger (but if you’re into that, that’s cool!)
Particularly, we have questions about how to find the right anti-aging products when we are also still suffering from “younger skin issues,” like acne. Aging skin is especially difficult because one day you wake up and you’re still using the same acne products you were using as a teenager! How do you gracefully transition your routine with age? How do you learn to let go of old favorites for new favorites? How early is “too early” to start using the same products as our mothers?
These are just some of our questions. We’d love to know what YOUR biggest questions are when it comes to skin care for aging. Leave them in the comments and we promise to answer them!
