Welcome to your thirties, where it can feel like you're in a whole new world now–and for your skin, that might actually be the case. Your hormones have changed, you're starting to see your first set of fine lines and wrinkles, and your youthful skin tone is starting to become a bit uneven after all those times you skipped the SPF. The good news is that this is the time where you can start fresh and find a skincare routine that will prevent any early signs of aging. Follow these simple rules to integrate into your skincare routine in your thirties.
One thing you shouldn't change after you enter a new decade? How often you cleanse. Washing your face is something you should do morning and night, no matter your age. With that being said, find a cleanser that gently pulls the junk out of your pores and rids impurities from the surface of skin to improve skin’s tone. Immediately, skin looks more radiant. Every morning and evening, lather the facial cleanser into wet hands and gently massage it onto your skin a circular motion, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
2. Treat the signs of aging
Retinoid products will overturn overexposed skin cells, giving you a more youthful and smooth complexion that will keep you looking younger, longer. The most powerful retinoid out there is tretinoin, which is personally used by 10/10 of dermatologists. Dermatologists recommend to start using tretinoin once you hit your thirties to prevent and reverse any early signs of aging: wrinkles, dark spots, and pore size.
3. Moisturize and protect
The more you moisturize, the healthier your skin will be and the better it will look as you age. Look for a moisturizer with SPF, as you must be applying SPF every single day to protect your skin from any damage from UV rays that cause wrinkles and sun spots. Your thirties are the years that you're going to see the signs of the damage from the sun start appearing.
Bonus: Double cleanse to remove your makeup at night
Cleansing is especially important at night, as you don’t want to sleep in your makeup. When you do that, the makeup can mix with the dirt and oils that have built up on the surface of your skin, leading to clogged pores—and clogged pores can lead to breakouts. Try double cleansing with micellar water to make sure you get all of it off for a fresh face before you go to bed.
Bonus: Consume less sugar
Balance your diet; consume more greens and less sugars and caffeine. Sugars increase the effects of aging and can also worsen skin conditions like acne and rosacea. It activates inflammation and binds to the collagen–making the skin rough.
