Many people freak out about turning 30, but it’s a really fun age. You’re more secure in your womanhood and hopefully the mistakes you made in your 20s are behind you. But if those mistakes happened to be with your skin care habits, you really have to step your game up and start repairing it. In your 30s, the skin starts to slow down its renewal process, which you might notice as it gets a little dull. Some women also experience increased pigmentation and blotchiness as a result of accumulated sun exposure, while fine lines may start to show their ugly heads. But fret not, because you don’t want to cause anymore lines and because we have 3 tips on how to handle your skin through your thirties.
1. Sunscreen Rules Everything Around Us
The other C.R.E.A.M. you really need to be worried about in your 30s is sunscreen. Like we mentioned in the post on skincare in your 20s, the sun is the biggest culprit behind the breakdown of collagen, which can leave the skin less vibrant, less resilient, and can make you look older than you really are. Slather on sunscreen and reapply every 2-3 hours especially if you’ll be outdoors for prolonged periods of time. For your face, try a sunscreen that also contains age-fighting elements such as antioxidants with a moisturizer like Clinique Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer.
