Important: 15 Skincare Tips for Your 40s, 50s, and Beyond

Amanda Montell

Most women want their skin to look youthful and healthy, but anti-ageing advice is not one-size-fits-all. The beauty products, habits, and lifestyle choices you should cultivate at 20 are very different from the ones you should have under your belt at 50. Plus, your skincare goals naturally evolve as you age—at least they should.

"One anti-ageing myth I feel is extremely important to debunk is that all skin must look like it's less than 25 years old in order to be beautiful—so not true," says skincare guru Holly McWhorter, co-founder of Plant Apothecary. It isn't reasonable to expect your skin to look 25 forever, but it is possible to keep it looking glowy and beautiful well into yours 60s.

How? You might think a cohesive guide to anti-ageing for every decade would be too massive to fit into one Byrdie story—but you'd be wrong. We had a panel of trusted estheticians spill their best anti-ageing advice for women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, and we gathered them all here. Keep scrolling to see their 15 best tips for keeping your skin glowy forever.
