How to Transform Your Skin in Your 30’s
Have you ever noticed that some women never seem to age? If you want to steal their secrets, now is the time to get started! When you are in your 30’s, your skin is undergoing some serious changes. A basic cleanser and moisturiser just isn’t going to be enough anymore. To make your skin glow, you’re going to have to up your game.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Just a few product upgrades and a little professional help will transform your look. Ready to get started? If you want to age beautifully, here is everything you need to know.
Create an Exfoliation Schedule
Once you reach 30, your skin restores itself at a slower rate. Cell turnover doesn’t happen as quickly and your skin loses its fresh look. To whisk away dead skin cells, exfoliation is essential. Facial scrubs are great for dealing with surface skin but it is essential to create just the right schedule. If you exfoliate too much, you can damage your skin’s protective moisture barrier and cause irritation.
On top of a facial scrub, you’ll also want something that can exfoliate on a deeper level. Exfoliating acids like glycolic, lactic, or salicylic acid are perfect for dealing with an uneven skin tone and large pores. And, when you really want to start turning back the clock, start getting a chemical peel twice per year. This will encourage collagen production to create a more even skin tone and prevent breakouts.
To get started on the perfect skincare routine, get a skin assessment. Using 3D face imaging software, the pros at the Medispa Institute can tell you precise what you need where and how often.
Never Skimp on Sunscreen
The number one cause of premature ageing is sun damage. A lot of women skip sunscreen for various reasons and the results start to become obvious in your 30’s.
If you tend to break out when you use sunscreen, opt for a lightweight formula with zinc oxide. Remember, you’ve got to reapply sunscreen every two hours when you’re outside. This means that even SPF 30 foundation is only going to cover you for the first couple hours of your day. Stash some SPF cream in your handbag and be sure to cover your neck, chest, and any other exposed spots every single day, rain or shine.
Use High Quality Eye Cream
Your eyes are one of the first spots that’ll show signs of ageing. The best way to prevent fine lines and wrinkles is with a high quality eye cream. Apply an eye cream every morning and night. Use your ring finger to very gently pat the cream around your eyes. Your skin is very sensitive so avoid tugging or pulling your skin, which will cause irritation and premature ageing.
See a Skin Professional
At-home products will only get you so far. When you are in your 30’s, it is time to take your skincare routine to the next level. Incorporate professional medi-facials into your regular routine. A trained dermal therapist can assess your ever-changing needs to create customised solutions that will give your skin precisely what it needs.
