Once you hit “30-something,” your skin care routine is likely to change somewhat from the program you adhered to in your 20s. Suddenly, early signs of aging are beginning to creep up, especially around the eyes. Your skin may not look as fresh as it once did, and exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun may begin to take its toll. While these changes are completely normal, you don’t have to accept them without a fight. Check out these skin care tips for 30-somethings to help you keep your skin looking fabulous throughout this decade.
Cell turnover begins to slow down by your 30s, but exfoliating the skin will stimulate cell turnover and leave you with a glowing complexion. Exfoliation can be done at home with products like facial scrubs and exfoliating acid serums. You can also opt for professional exfoliation services like chemical peels or a micropeel facial that combines microdermabrasion with an enzymatic peel.
The same mantra you heard throughout your 20s will be repeated during this decade – protect your skin from the sun. Select a daytime moisturizer or foundation with a minimum SPF 30 to keep you skin safe from harmful UV rays and apply sunscreen to the rest of your skin as well, since telltale signs of aging are not restricted to the face. If you can’t live without your sun-kissed glow, spray tanning is a good way to add color without cancer risk.
By your 30s, you may notice your skin begins to dry out a bit, particularly if you live in a dry climate. Add hydration to your skin care routine, inside and out. Up your water intake daily to keep your entire body hydrated. Use a moisturizer every night to feed your skin much needed hydration and nutrients and add a light moisturizer in the morning under your makeup if necessary.
It is not too early to be warding off signs of aging, both through home care and professional services. Choose a product with retinol to use at home, which is about as close to the proverbial “fountain of youth” as you can get today. On a professional level, chemical peels and photo rejuvenation will minimize early signs of aging and keep your skin in top conditions. If wrinkles are already beginning to make an appearance, Botox injections can smooth them away and give you a more youthful appearance.
