3 Tips to Overcome Skin Challenges as You Age

We hear it a lot: "Celebrities are just like us." But thumb through a glossy magazine or scroll through social media and take a look at the pore-free selfies and flawless skin, and that can be tough to believe.

Behind the photo editing software and expensive makeup, though, celebrities face the same skincare challenges that the average person deals with. From adult acne to dry skin to blemishes, they are also on the lookout for solutions to treat their skin woes.

If you're ready to learn more about how celebrities-and you-can treat common skin challenges that come with age, keep reading for a few tips.

Moisturize to Minimize

From enlarged pores to blemishes, many of the most common skin woes we face are the result of our skin lacking the moisture that it needs. Dry skin can be the result of a variety of factors. A harsh skincare routine, sun damage, and genetic factors can all dry your skin. And as we age, our skin no longer produces as much natural oil and cells renew slower, both of which contribute to dry skin.

Even with plenty of funds to pay for fancy skincare treatments, celebrities aren't immune to the factors that lead to dry skin. Eva Longoria, for instance, spoke publicly about how her skin was dry and she suffered from blemishes. She touted the benefits of adding a good moisturizer to your routine to rebalance your skin and keep it hydrated and healthy.

Better Skin Starts with a Better Diet

Eva isn't the only celebrity to speak out about the skincare problems she has faced. Cameron Diaz may be known for her bright, youthful appearance on the big screen, but she has spoken out about her struggles with acne throughout her adult years. 

Like most dermatologists would tell you, Diaz gives some of the credit for her now-clear skin to her improved diet. She described her previous diet and explained the connection she found between what she ate and her breakouts, saying, "I mean, I had terrible, terrible skin. It was embarrassing. I used to eat a cheeseburger and fries every day. But once I stopped, a funny thing happened ... my skin began to clear up. My acne wasn't totally gone, but it was significantly better."

If you've been struggling with adult acne, rethinking your diet alongside your skincare routine is a good choice.

Add a Serum to Your Skincare Routine

The right cleanser and moisturizer can help treat your acne, dry skin, and blemishes. But for an all-around boost to your skincare routine, you need to add another often-overlooked tool: a facial serum.

Facial serums are designed to meet a variety of skincare needs and deliver a powerful boost of ingredients your skin craves. From Hyaluronic Acid to boost your skin's moisture to retinoids for treating the signs of aging, face serums are like a superfood for your skin. Figuring out when to apply facial serum is just as important, as this can help your skin absorb the ingredients and minimize sensitivity in sunlight.

Treating Common Skin Challenges as You Age

Our skin goes through a lot as we age. From sun damage to slower cell renewal, your once glowing skin may be lackluster, pigmented, and even blemished. But by adding the right moisturizer and facial serum to your skincare routine and eating right, you can give your skin a boost at any age!
