Turning 30 is often a pretty big deal for 20-somethings. It’s generally a time to pit your life goals up against your reality (ouch!) and start worrying about the beginning of a more rapid-paced aging process.
Job promotions are on the line, and reunion notifications start rolling in. Hence, the pressure often feels overwhelming, especially when it comes to the condition of their skin and anything else that indicates how well they are aging.
If you are on the cusp of 30, you don’t need to panic about your skin. Take a few tips on what to do to keep your skin glowing and beautiful throughout your 30s and beyond.
Here are the five best pieces of skincare advice if you are turning 30:
1. Recognize That Different Skin Issues Require Different Treatments
For effective treatment, you must recognize that, as your skin changes, so do possible skin issues. Each one is different and often requires special care for effectiveness.
2. Wipe the Wipes from Your Life
You know those convenient packs of facial cleansers you carry with you while on-the-go? Please stop using those right away because the resilient skin you could handle cavalierly in your 20s has now lost some of its bounce, and you must protect what is left. Alcohol-soaked wipes are generally too abrasive for your skin in your 30s and can dehydrate your skin, leaving it dry and sensitive.
3. Seek a Skin Regimen That Addresses Your Skin’s Various Needs
Search for a dermatologist anti-aging skin routine that has everything you need in one regimen and routine. The best regimens help you turn back time to reveal younger-looking skin by visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing texture, and restoring elasticity. A high-quality, dermatologist-grade, three-part regimen is what you need to care for your skin and get the results you want.
4. Wear a Broad Spectrum SPF with Retinol
While there have been plenty of technological advances in skincare, retinol is still the gold standard for anti-aging in SPF products. Quality brands contain retinol, which is potent and useful for keeping skin looking young, fresh and vibrant. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays is essential to maintaining healthy skin into your 30s, and the right sunscreen can help.
5. Practice Nightly Skincare Duties
First of all, remember to get at least eight hours of uninterrupted sleep. Before you head to bed, prepare your skin for repair while you sleep. Skin regeneration and restoration are on-the-go as you start to slow down each night. Give your skin’s natural regenerative abilities a boost with some nighttime hydration and by wearing a sleep mask. Alternatively consider a night cream for your 30s to help boost collagen production as you sleep. These kinds of night creams are formulated for people in the 30s, with ingredients that not only deeply hydrate but also help damage from both the environment (pollution and the sun) and lifestyle (late nights and drinking). The best nights creams also are formulated without the likes of silicones and artificial fragrance that some experts indicates can irritate the skin.
Your Skincare is Still in Your Hands in Your 30s
You do not need to concede to the idea that once you hit your 30s, your skin will start wrinkling and sagging. You still have plenty of control, as long as you treat your skin with the proper care and consideration. The key concept of skincare of your 30s is treating it more gently by wearing a premium SPF, finding a skincare regimen that suits your skin, and practicing nightly care. You can feel young and fresh in your 30s and beyond with the right skincare strategy.
