Up until now, you may have slacked on your skincare routine. When you’re young, your skin is more elastic and is better equipped to heal on its own. As you age, it’s important to establish good skincare habits to keep your skin looking as good as it did in your 20s. Preserve your youthful glow by adopting the following skincare habits in your 30s.
1. Start Using an Eye Cream
If you have yet to introduce an eye cream into your daily skincare routine, start now. The skin surrounding the eyes is thin and fragile meaning premature signs of aging are likely to develop there. Apply a hydrating eye cream day and night to keep the skin firm and to curb fine lines and eye wrinkles. We recommend Elastifirm Eye Serum. This anti-wrinkle eye cream is highly concentrated to strengthen capillaries, boost elasticity, and reduce eye bags for a more vibrant and youthful appearance.
2. Get a Good Night’s Sleep
In your 20s, you likely experienced a lot of late nights out. In our 30s, we need more sleep to help our bodies recover from the day before. Make sleep a priority by going to bed at the same time each night and getting at least 7 to 9 hours. Getting enough shut-eye can have a major impact on the look and health of your skin.
3. Always Apply Sunscreen
Rain or shine, sunscreen is a must. Women in their 20s often skip this essential skincare step and regret it later in life. Sun spots usually don’t appear until years after sun damage has occurred and by that time, it’s too late. To prevent sun damage, apply a broad spectrum sunscreen daily under your makeup. The Oil Free Sun Protection SPF is an excellent choice for protecting against harmful UVA and UVB rays. This sunscreen for sensitive skin is lightweight, oil-free, and protects against free radicals.
4. Cut Down on Sugar
What you put into your body has a direct impact on your skin’s appearance. If you have yet to take control of your diet in your 20s, wrangle it in while in your 30s. Add more fresh greens to your diet and less sugars. Sugar not only speeds up the effects of aging but can also worsen certain skin conditions like rosacea and acne. It also contributes to inflammation which can make your skin appear irritated and rough.
5. Remove Makeup at Night
Not washing off facial makeup is a common bad habit that many women make in their 20s. However, when you skip makeup removal before bed, the cosmetics trap bacteria and oil against the skin which can cause premature wrinkles, discoloration, and acne. For a light, oil, and alcohol-free make up remover, try the Ultra Gentle Eye Make Up Remover. This effective eye makeup remover works well to dissolve water-resistant mascara and cosmetics in the eye area without irritating the delicate eye tissues. Reaching your 30s is a major milestone that involves a shift in your skincare routine. By taking a few preventative measures, you can nourish and protect your skin so that it remains healthy and beautiful into your 40s, 50s, and beyond.
