Many unanticipated changes happen to most people in their 30s. Facial features may stiffen while others may loosen and develop wrinkles. For many people, the 30s are the years when they have established more control and satisfaction with their relationships, career, finances, and hobbies. Unfortunately, the effects of aging can be a real downer on this exciting and fulfilling time of life. Deep wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, dark spots, and adult acne can occur in nearly anyone depending on their lifestyle, exposure to the elements, and their genetic make-up. Thankfully, there are ways to combat the looks of aging! If you add the following anti-aging skincare tips to your 30s skincare routine, you will experience the benefits of youthful, bouncier, healthier skin, that glows just as much as you do from the inside out.
Skincare Tips for People in Their 30s
Skincare in your 30s doesn’t have to mean spending hours massaging your face in essential oils and thousands of dollars at beauty salons, but you will need to do more than wash your face with soap and water. By making these a part of your daily practices, you will postpone the signs of aging, help your skin renew healthier cells faster, and stay moisturized and protected from the harsh rays of the sun.
Get a Deep Clean
Cleansing your skin every morning and before bedtime ensures that all makeup, sweat, or residue from hair products is removed from your skin. The clean surface can then perform its essential protective and renewal functions without any pores being clogged and obstructing this natural process. Choosing the right cleanser may be simple for some people while others, especially those with skin conditions like acne or psoriasis, should consult with a skincare specialist or dermatologist before using any store-bought products or skincare items from infomercials.
One of the all-time best skincare tips is to exfoliate. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and products from the surface and upper layers of the skin and increases blood circulation to filter any toxins, and allows the skin to enter renewal mode faster. A gentle exfoliator like mixing coconut oil with sugar works great! Plus, you won’t need to moisturize your skin after rinsing. If you suffer from extremely oily, clogged, or acne-riddled skin, exfoliating twice a week may not be enough for you. In extreme cases like these, visiting a reputable skincare clinic is the best option. A professional exfoliation such as microdermabrasion or chemical peel will help keep your skin radiant and healthy.
Dry skin is usually a sign of dehydration. You can boost your skin’s hydration levels by drinking more water each day, taking shorter showers with lukewarm (not hot) water, and using natural oils, like almond oil, vitamin E oil, sesame oil, or coconut oil, to seal in moisture right after you shower. The protective layer will not only leave you feeling silky smooth, it also smells wonderful!
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
Sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature aging, and if you’re in your 30s, you should still be protecting your skin. Wear a sunscreen with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection every day, even during the winter. Focus on the areas that get the most sun exposure such as your face, hands, and neck. If you worry about the oily nature of sunscreen, there are endless facial lotions with sunscreen available for you to choose from. That way, you can have oil-free, scent-free skin and get adequate sun protection all year long.
It’s no secret that stress is the silent killer. If you are dealing with intense emotional stress, it can have an effect on the health of your body and your skin. Try to manage your stress as much as possible by taking a yoga class, getting a monthly massage, treating yourself to a facial once in a while, spending time in nature, or reading a good book on your lunch break at work. Whatever suits your fancy, taking care of yourself from the inside will have a dramatic effect on how you look on the outside.
