Some say that your 30’s is the best time of your life.
However, when it comes to the skin, it can be a troublesome decade for us girls.
Turning thirty can mean noticeable changes in the skin.
Early signs of ageing may now become apparent, as elastin fibres start to lose strength and flexibility.
In some instances, you could be forgiven for thinking you are regressing, as imbalances in hormones can lead to pimples and even acne.
If that’s you, don’t be tempted to use products aimed at a younger skin, these skin care products are often formulated for an oily skin type, and can be drying on a more mature skin.
As you move into your 30’s, your skin can start to lose its youthful glow, so now more than ever, healthy skincare tips are going to be key.
SKINCARE TIPS IN YOUR 30’S
Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate
Be sure to drink plenty of water, to keep both your body and skin hydrated.
Use products that are rich in humectants, especially if you have a dry skin.
These hydrating ingredients will help to improve skins texture and plump out fine lines and wrinkles.
Don’t stop with the slip, slap, slop
Use SPF protection, especially in areas that are exposed to the suns damaging rays, such as face, neck and hands.
Restore skin back to a youthful glow
As our skin ages, cells on the top layer of the skin stop dividing and desquamation slows right down, which is the natural exfoliation process of our skin.
To keep skin radiant and bright, introduce gentle exfoliating products into your skin care routine, they help to get rid of the build up of dead skin cells and smooth out uneven texture.
Be warned, once or twice a week is plenty, as you don’t want to over stimulate the delicate skin tissue.
