Research shows younger women don’t bother with Skin Care regime

11 August 2014

We’re constantly being told that establishing a good Skin Care regime and sticking to it will do wonders for our skin. That’s why it’s so surprising that new research shows younger women are forgoing a proper Skin Care regime , with less than one in five thirty year olds bothering to attend to their skin daily. Shockingly, only 24 per cent of women in their thirties use a daily moisturiser, unlike their forty, fifty and sixty year old counterparts. The reason for not doing so? “A third say they can’t be bothered, one in five forget and a fifth believe it’s too time consuming”, according to an article on femalefirst.co.uk. Worse still is the amount of thirty year olds who do not remove their make-up before going to bed – more than 50 per cent in comparison to just 22 per cent of sixty year old women. According to leading Make-Up Artist, Alana Phillips: “As a make-up artist I am concerned by this new research, especially that so many young women are failing to remove their make-up before going to bed. “Not only will this clog the pores which can lead to spots and blackheads, but it can also age the skin.” Calling all women – do you follow a Skin Care regime daily?
