The Fit List: Secret to beautiful skin in your 20s, 30s and 40s


Whether you're a mom in your 20s or 50s, looking good at any age all starts with one thing. Healthy skin.
Forget those secret potions that promise youth in a bottle. Beauty guru Lisa Kasanicky of @AZSpaGirls gave us her list of skin secrets.
Starting with your 20s:
  • That's actually the best you're ever going to have so take care of it.  Stay out of the sun or at least protect yourself from the sun.
  • Use sunscreen - everyday, even if you're not in the sun.
  • Lisa's Tip:"A lot of us wear lip gloss which actually reflects the sun so if you can find an SPF lip gloss go for it. But if you can't just smear it on your lips too."
In your 30s:
  • When you hit your 30s your collagen production slows down so jump-start your anti-aging routines with retinols and weekly face masks. 
  • Take more vitamins and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
  • Lisa's Tip: "Oranges, apples, green beans, everything you can eat to hydrate your inside and your skin is going to show that."
In your 40s:
  • Your body starts giving you push-back for your reckless youth.  Hello wrinkles and sunspots.
  • Our skin has been shielding us all this time and it has had some damage so brightening agents help to diminish hyperpigmentation and sunspots.
  • Lisa's Tip: "No Preparation H under the eyes. No more toothpaste on the face. What's happened with those old wives tales is that the ingredients of those have changed."
Last on Lisa's list, no matter what age you are, never retire from the skin care game.
"It's never too late to reverse the skin aging process," Lisa said.
Be in your 50s and look like you're in your 20s, instead of the opposite.  Have a liftetime of leather-free skin on the Fit List.
