It's important to choose wisely in the oversaturated market of skincare products. It can be hard to determine which products are best for the people on your list, especially when they’re different ages and skin types.

Don’t blindly pick something out and hope for the best or waste time skimming through all the “top 10 best skincare products” hoping to find the best fit for your friends and family. Take it from a professional!


The Best Skincare Products for Different Ages

Our skin requires different care at our different stages of life. The last thing you would want to do is get a teenager products that will dry out their sensitive skin, or a get a family member in their adulthood products that aren't going to benefit their aging skin. 

Here is a general guide for different age ranges:


With the teenage years comes hormones, which usually means breakouts. If there is a teen in your life who is dealing with acne, or maybe they just need a good skincare routine, a gentle exfoliating cleanser is a good place to start. GlyMed Plus' Gentle Facial Wash has 10% glycolic acid that jumpstarts skin cells, improves acne, and lightens and brightens the skin. This cleanser is gentle enough to use on even the most sensitive skin.

Another effective, yet fun product to gift to a teen in your life is the OXYGEN Deep Pore Cleanser. Although the name mentions "cleanser", it works like a masque to thoroughly cleanse and purify congested pores, stimulate healthy cell turnover, and reveal smoother, more radiant skin.


After the teenage years pass acne goes away and you are left with beautiful, glowing skin, right? Wrong! 

Adult acne can be even more frustrating and difficult to maintain. Adults also meet new concerns, like fine line and wrinkles. A good product for both acne and fine lines and wrinkles is Retinol Restart Rejuvenation Cream or Retinol Restart Rejuvenation Serum. These products contain Vitamin A which speeds skin renewal to diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It is very important to wear sunscreen in general, and especially when using retinol. A great product to pair with retinol is a GlyMed Plus sunscreen. A favorite of mine is the Photo-Age Environmental Protection Gel 30+.



Dry or dehydrated skin is a major concern for seniors. After the age of 30, collagen starts to deplete which leads to dryness and loss of its elasticity, reduces epidermal thickness and the skin becomes more prone to damage. 

You can never go wrong with an eye cream to help firm and hydrate around the eyes. The Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream is an intensely hydrating, lifting and firming eye treatment that delivers clinically proven, anti-aging results. It's packed with protective botanicals, antioxidants, vitamins and potent ceramides to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while firming the delicate skin around the eye.

Another staple for seniors is the Stem Cell Power Serum. This serum helps to slow the aging process, lifting and firming sagging skin and brightens discoloration. Packed with anti-aging ingredients and plant stem cells to help stimulate younger acting skin while increasing collagen production.
