For each decade that passes, you may feel like you are starting a new chapter of your life. Unfortunately, hitting the age of 30 is sometimes approached with some wariness or even panic. For better or worse, it is the beginning of something new, especially when it comes to your skin.
After turning 30, it is common to start to notice changes in your skin. You may notice that it is looking a little dull, dry, or not as full as it used to look. Some experience cystic acne for the first time, their skin seems more irritated than normal, or their face seems flush and stays red. Here are a few tips that can help you have healthy and youthful-looking skin in your 30s.
FOR THOSE AT A BEGINNER LEVEL
If you are just starting to take skincare seriously and you are looking for some ways to prevent skin problems, these tips are for you. The first thing that you will need is a gentle cleanser. You want something that will wash your facial skin without stripping it of its natural lipids.
You will also need a facial moisturizer that will fortify your skin’s barrier, create a protective layer, and draw in moisture. Find something that will prevent breakouts if you deal with acne. Light formulas usually prevent pores from being clogged.
Sun exposure can cause a whole host of skin issues as you get older. Use a sunscreen that contains active ingredients to protect your skin from the sun. Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa offers tinted and non-tinted sunscreens, both physical and chemical to suit each individual’s needs.
FOR THOSE AT AN INTERMEDIATE LEVEL
If you are ready to go beyond basic skincare or you are looking to address specific issues, you will need the above-mentioned skincare products and a few extras.
Now that you have a gentle cleanser, look for a toner that will remove lingering residue and dirt. You are not looking for an alcohol-based toner that will sting your skin. You want to find something that contains ingredients with antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and exfoliating acids. Epionce Skincare has some excellent options for toner and we are always happy to help clients find the right fit.
If you are dealing with acne, find an exfoliating product that can be used right after washing your face in the morning with a gentle cleanser. It’s also great to use a product containing salicylic acid for spot treatments like our WVCM SkinPerx Clear Days Ahead pads. Products that contain clay, such as Revision Skincare’s Black Mask, will also help by absorbing excess oil.
Antioxidant serums can be added to your daily skincare routine right before applying a moisturizer. Depending on the ingredients, they can neutralize free radicals that damage skin cells and prevent premature aging. If you are looking to correct fine lines and an uneven skin tone, a vitamin C serum is the way to go. Many of our product lines have great antioxidant serums and we can help you find the one best for your skin.
