As far as skin care goes, your 30s are all about superficial skin correction! Sun damage from your teens and 20s begin to show, changing the way your skin looks, feels and reacts to your daily routine. Below we’ve shared a few products you need in your cabinet to ensure perfect skin in your 30s.
Many women develop rosacea during their 30s thanks to exercising, stress, or eating and drinking certain foods. Also, if you decide to carry a child during this period, your skin will lose moisture and absorb products more easily. The change in your skin is due to the hormone progesterone. The compound dilates blood vessels and heightens sensitivity, which can contribute to pregnancy glow but can ultimately lead to a decrease in moisture over time. Try to avoid foaming cleanser, which strips moisture, and boosts hydration with essence or hydrating toner. Also, be sure to avoid perfume and preservative that irritate the skin.
In your 30s, exfoliation is key. The practice will help boost cell turnover, and help keep skin fresh and bright. A chemical exfoliant will introduce a touch of acid to your skin and normalize the skin’s moisture barrier. Doing this w will help your face hold water and prevent zits. Find a pad that contains a healthy balance of acids and potent antioxidant. A balanced formula will also include ingredients that soothe the skin, like rose water, hyaluronic acid, and squalene.
Eye cream is now more essential than ever. The skin below your eyes is incredibly thin, making it one of the first area to show lines on your face. Try applying eye cream at least twice a day. Creams containing peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid will help plump shadowy hollows. If your main problem is puffiness, try a cream containing caffeine, which can tighten vessels under the skin, producing a firmer appearance.
