skin-care-routine-for-30s Are you in your 30s?  If yes, then this article is for you. Today, we will tackle the ideal skin care routine for people in this age group. Aside from the different changes that you can expect concerning your skin, we will also give you simple, but helpful tips that can positively change the way your skin looks – not just now but years later as well.

Most older women who have beautiful skin don’t have it by accident.  It’s due to years of care and attention paid to their face and skin.  The younger you start to take care of those things the better you will look when you are older.

Okay, so let’s take a look at what happens in your 30s and what you need to do to keep yourself looking young and beautiful.

There is slower cell turnover as we age

As we age, the process of cell renewal naturally becomes slower. This starts to happen during your 30s. Because of this, your skin can look duller than normal.  The vibrant look you had when you were in your 20s is starting to fade now and your skin no longer looks as fresh.

If you want your radiant-looking skin back, it’s important to exfoliate your skin regularly. According to experts, once a week will do the trick. Although, this will still depend on many factors such as your general skin type and tone.

Aside from exfoliating, using a good facial cleanser will help.  Use a gentle wash twice a day to stimulate cell turnover and production. Some ideal ingredients for cleansers include aloe and chamomile, which are also known to help decrease inflammation.

Fine lines wrinkles and other signs of aging will start to appear

Fine lines and wrinkles are normal signs of aging. If you want to make them less visible, then now is a good time to start to use anti-aging beauty products. Specifically, you can use retinol to achieve a youthful look.

Signs of aging can appear prematurely if the skin has been damaged by too much sun exposure. This is the reason why you should always remember to apply sunscreen even on cloudy days when the sun doesn’t look out.

Skin’s natural barrier needs to work double time

The environment can be very harsh especially on the skin. In order to boost your skin’s protection, use products infused with Vitamin C.  Vitamin C is called nature’s miracle for a reason.  It can help a woman look 10 years younger when used over time.  If you do nothing else, use products with Vitamin C!   Study after study has shown how great it is and Dr. Oz loves it too.  It can help block wrinkles from forming and make your skin look healthier and fresh.  For more information on Vitamin C check out our Vitamin C Serum section on our home page.

Thinning around the eye area

The skin around the eye area is very thin and sensitive and it gets even thinner as we age and the collagen in our skin lessens. You should be cautious when it comes to the products that you use. A vitamin c eye treatment can help fight off wrinkles near your eyes. It is best to use an eye cream both day and night.

Problems in the tone of your skin may appear

To avoid this, you can add retinoid to your regimen. It is available in various strengths so you may need to visit your dermatologist in order to know what will help your skin the most.

Skin dryness

In your 30s the natural hydration your skin had when it was younger starts to disappear due to sun, smoke, environment and just aging.  Free radicals make their way to our skin which leads to increased dryness and dullness.  Always moisturize your skin to prevent dryness and dullness.  If you want, you can add a good hydrating cream in your regimen to help boost the work of your moisturizer. For moisturizers, most recommend those infused with Hyaluronic acid.   If you want your skin to have that healthy glow then moisturize.

Overproduction of cortisol by the adrenal glands because of stress

It is very common for people in this age group to be stressed.  This is of course understandable because there are so many facets in life that they need to juggle all at the same time – money, career, life. When this happens, the hormone levels of the body can be affected. To prevent acne breakouts, try to take time to relax and enjoy yourself. I know, easier said than done but your skin will thank you for it not just now but in 20 years.

Pregnancy Issues

A lot of women become pregnant during this time, because of this; stretch marks can be a big problem. For this, anti-stretch mark creams will do the trick to bring back skin’s elasticity, which was lost due to the stretching of the skin and hormonal changes.  For more on stretch marks check out our stretch marks section on the home page.

If you are on your 30s, you will surely experience most, if not all the changes that we have listed above. Just follow the tips that we shared today to make sure that you will still have that youthful and radiant-looking skin in years to come.
