Women go through many skin issues in their 30s. Teenage years are all about getting rid of hormonal acne, the 20s might just be relaxing and enjoying their youthful glow. So when a woman reaches her 30s the skin begins to get drier as the rate of cell turnover becomes slow, making the pores clogged and dry.
So if you haven’t really paid attention for a proper skincare routine, then now you simply need to. Health experts and dermatologists believe that taking care of the skin at a young age can help to improve the benefits of it later in life. So your 30s is the actual time to start a routine and see what goes for your skin.
First have a proper skincare regime. A 3-step process of cleansing, toning and moisturizing or a 5-step routine of cleansing, exfoliating, serum, treatment, and moisturising. If your skin cannot handle too many products, you can opt for a simple routine like a cleansing, serum, and moisturising.
Apply an exfoliating acid into your skincare routine. This can be in the form of an alpha hydroxy acid or AHA, which is good for dry skin. It increase the rate of cell turnover. So for sensitive skin use a polyhydroxy acid or a salicylic acid for oily skin. Apply moisturiser to hydrate and wear it at the time when it is damp. It will keep your skin hydrated and also decrease the trans epidermal loss.
Applying SPF regularly is very important. Make sure to use a mineral-based one, a sunscreen that contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to increase amount of collagen and slow production of hyaluronic acid on the skin.
