As we grow older, we’re going to start seeing proofs of our age in our appearance. Our skin will not look as plump as before. We’ll start seeing aging marks under our eyes. Our facial features will begin to sag. These are things that many women are afraid of, but these are part of life.
We can’t stop time, but we can reduce the effects of aging on our appearance. Taking care of your skin can go great lengths in keeping you looking young and fresh even in your 30s. Here are some skincare tips to achieve that.
Drink plenty of water
It’s easy for us to get away with not drinking the recommended eight glasses of water a day when we were young. That’s because we didn’t see the negative effects of dehydration back then. But as we grow older, we should be more careful with our health.
Drinking eight to ten glasses of water a day will greatly benefit your skin. It will help eliminate toxins that can damage skin-boosting functions and will hydrate your skin from within. The result is a plumper and fresher appearance.
Cleanse, Tone, and Moisturize
The cleansing-toning-moisturizing combo is more familiar as the CTM routine. It’s a basic method in skin care that women should be doing. You may have worn a lot of makeup in your 20s without doing the CTM method, and you’re taking the fall for it now in your 30s.
Makeup will not hide wrinkles and dark spots completely. So make sure you’re maintaining naturally beautiful skin by cleansing and getting rid of all the dirt, applying toner to double-cleanse oil and other debris, and moisturizing to help seal in moisture and get a firmer and plumper appearance.
We experience a lot of nutritional gaps in our 30s. That’s the reason why it’s the time in life when we start developing serious illnesses. Your 30s are a crucial time to start developing healthy habits to keep your health in check.
To sustain your body with the nutrients and minerals it needs, consider taking supplements. Vitamin E and vitamin C aren’t only good for your body. They also work wonders in improving your skin’s appearance because it stimulates the production of collagen, a nutrient that improves skin elasticity.
Pamper yourself with facials
There’s only so much we can do to try to look younger. Sometimes, we need a little help. Make it a habit to head to the spa and get a facial once a month. Facials for anti-aging will assist you in your quest to getting younger-looking skin in your 30s. You can also consider Botox specials to help eliminate and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Always apply sunscreen
Applying sunscreen is an important step in a skincare routine. Whether you’re in your 20s and 30s, you should be putting on sunscreen every day. It’s a common misconception that sunscreen is only for beach trips or times when you get prolonged sun exposure. But UV rays are present and can harm your skin even while you’re at home all day.
Make it a habit to put on sunscreen daily. Get a brand that contains an SPF above 30, which is best in protecting your skin against UVA and UVB radiation. Put that bottle of sunscreen beside your toiletry kit, so you don’t forget.
The habits we form in our 30s are crucial in determining our overall health and wellness when we grow older. Your skin and outer appearance is not an exemption. So make sure to start and maintain good skincare habits at this critical time.
