Your age is not the only thing that changes as you grow old. At 30s, your skin also goes through a transition and you may experience more irritation and dryness than before. You may also start to see fine lines and creases, and weird spots may pop out from time to time. Changes in your skin during this time are normal. This is why it is advisable to make some adjustments in your routine or adopt new healthy skin care habits. Doing so can help you prepare and deal with the changes, as well as improve your skin’s condition.
Here are a few skin care habits to adopt in your 30s:
1. Skip the wipes
While face wipes offer a more convenient way to remove makeup, they can be harsh or abrasive for your skin. Another sad part is many wipes also contain alcohol that can dry out and irritate the skin. It is best to choose a gentle or an alcohol-free makeup remover to effectively remove any cosmetic residue.
2. Use an anti-aging serum
With a quality serum, you can fight oxidative stress, fade pigmentation, as well as improve signs of aging. When looking for a serum, we recommend:
- Dr. Sylvia’s Vitamin C 20% with Ferulic Acid – This comprehensive serum contains various antioxidant actives to fight free radicals. It also offers hydration, skin lightening, and anti-aging benefits.
- Dr. Sylvia’s Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum – This targets age-related degradation and reactivates collagen and dermal activity. It can also prevent skin damage and improve skin’s texture, density, and firmness.
3. Incorporate an eye cream in your routine
As the most delicate part of your face, the skin around your eyes needs more care and attention. This makes it important to invest in an eye cream like Dr. Sylvia’s ELASTIfirm Eye Cream and Serum. This medical-grade botanical remedy is designed to firm dull skin around the eyes and make it more elastic in appearance.
4. Don’t forget your neck and décolletage
Your neck and décolletage are two delicate areas with less moisture and collagen than your face and cheeks. This is why you should extend your skincare regimen (cleansing and moisturizing) to your neck and chest area. You should also apply sunscreen, serums, and other skincare products on these regions.
5. See a skin or aesthetic doctor
Skin issues in your 30s, including rosacea, pigmentation, and adult acne, won’t simply go away or get better on their own. Experimenting different products will not also benefit your skin. It is better to see a dermatologist or aesthetic doctor for the right treatment and product recommendations for your skin concerns.
6. Start using retinol
Apart from sunscreen, another important anti-aging product you should use in your 30s is retinol. This smooths the texture of the skin, which helps in making pores, lines, and wrinkles less visible. This vitamin-A based skincare product can also reduce dark spots and boost cell regeneration.
7. Catch more sleep
A good night’s sleep allows your skin to regenerate itself and replace damaged cells. It helps your body make collagen, which is beneficial in keeping your skin firm and supple. Your skin is also more permeable during nighttime, making it more receptive to active ingredients in your skin care products. Moreover, sleep improves your overall well being.
