Anti-ageing creams and products are in abundance on the market and the belief that quantity can be more effective is not always the case. I’m going to be breaking down what your anti-ageing skincare needs to do for you in your 30s.
How Skin Ages in your 30s
As your skin ages, it goes through various stages and this means that your skincare also needs to vary over time; the way your skin is ageing in your 30s is completely different to how it will age in 40s and 50s.
Some people will start seeing the first signs of aging in early 30s, where as some might have already noticed signs in their 20s. This is based on your genetics and lifestyle.
However, in your 30s there are a number of common changes to the skin that the right skincare can effectively target. Here is my quick guide around the ageing process and what skincare routine you should be following to make the most of your skin during your 30s.
One of the biggest changes you will see during your 30s, is loss of brightness and freshness in your skin.
This is due to the changes in the skin renewal process. As you age, the skins ability to renew slows down, which means that dead skin cells are able to build-up on the skin surface.
To keep skin bright, get in the habit of exfoliating at least twice a week (3-4 times a week if you have dry skin).
Rather than physical scrubs, use an acid exfoliant; products containing Lactic and Glycolic acid are ideal. This helps to promote removal of dead skin cells without drying it out, helping to reveal glowing fresh skin and a more radiant complexion.
