When it comes to the skin and the passage of time, prevention is better than regret. Maritza Pérez, a dermatologist at Olay, tells us how our regimen should change over the years.
? PROBLEM: Acne. Most women have combination or oily skin.
? PRODUCTS: "Use a mild soap with salicylic acid that cleanses the lipids of the hair follicle, or benzoyl peroxide," says the expert. You can also use an exfoliant (retinol) to treat the hair follicle and reduce the activity of the sebaceous gland.
? REGIME: It is essential for preventive treatment. "Follow a day and night regimen in which you cleanse, hydrate, use sunscreen and treat the areas of the eyes, back of the hands and cleavage," says Pérez.
? AVOID: Alcohol-based products and abrasive scrubs, which can cause inflammation and irritation.
? PREVENTION: It is time to start using anti-aging products. "It's better than trying to correct the damage later," he says. "There is no reason to avoid anti-aging products unless you suffer from allergies." Birth control pills are an effective acne treatment because they regulate hormones, as well as sun exposure since sunlight kills bacteria.

? PROBLEM: Dryness and
stains. The skin barrier begins
to deteriorate, sun exposure causes an uneven tone, and
collagen breaks down.
? PRODUCTS: With sun protection to prevent the degradation of collagen and those that help in its production. Also, products that contain aminopeptides associated
with the production of collagen.
? REGIME: Clean, hydrate, protect and use a retinol scrub (with or without a prescription). Additionally, niacinamide (vitamin B3) is a wonderful exfoliant and antioxidant.
? AVOID: Alcohol-based products and those
with benzoyl peroxide.
? REMEMBER: The main areas to be treated are the eyes, the back of the hands and the neckline. Pay attention to the skin of the body as it also ages. From the age of 35 you should use more aggressive anti-aging treatments.

? PROBLEM: Flabby skin, spots, wrinkles. At 40, the signs of aging are more visible. Starting at age 50, a visit to the dermatologist will determine the ideal treatment for you.
? PRODUCTS: Use those that help in the production of collagen. After 50, you should use products with powerful ingredients such as retinoids, as well as peptides such as palmitoyl dipeptide-7 and pentapeptide-4, hexamidine and niacinamide.
? REGIME: Do not forget that at all stages you must follow a night treatment. In the morning you should cleanse and hydrate the face with preventive and protective treatments. At night you must repair the damage by eliminating free radicals with antioxidants.
