When you reach your 20s, your hormones finally calm down. You finally get the skin you have craved for during your teenage years. This is the skin that you want for the years to come. Chances are you are not correctly thinking about the future.
The same applies to your skin in the 30s. Your attitude is that you are still young and have good skin. Why should you worry about the things to come? You will deal with them when they happen, right?
Well, during your 30s, it is all about prevention. You can slow down the signs of aging and even prevent some of them occurring. You can make your skin look youthful for the decades to come, but you will need to take some proactive steps. Investing in the right beauty products is essential.
Want to skip the costs right now? Your 30s is when you need to spend on beauty products, and here are the top 10 reasons why.
This Is When You Need to Care for Your Skin
During your 30s, you need to start preparing for the aging process. This is when your cells’ health start to decline. You will need to help to protect them as much as possible.
One of those ways is by adding antioxidants to your skin. Many beauty products now include antioxidants, because they are so good for the skin health. The antioxidants will fight against the free radicals in the body and reduce the damage from oxidative stress. It is these two elements that cause the skin to start aging. You will see more fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes. So, if you can avoid them and fight against them, you can prevent the side effects to show.
Not all beauty products are made equal. Make sure you look at the ingredients to ensure they offer the antioxidants.
Avoid heavy creams. You want something light that won’t block the pores and increase the chances of developing acne.
You Skin Needs Moisture
During your 30s, you can start to see the oil production change. Your hormones begin to change,and this affects the number of natural oils that are produced. You want to help support the health of your skin by keeping it moist and encouraging the production of natural oils.
Look out for creams that will help to lock in moisture. If you do have acne-prone skin, look out for noncomedogenic products. These are ones that will lock in moisture without blocking your pores. They allow your skin to breathe and prevent the development of bacteria that cause acne to form and lead to more breakouts.
Moisture is essential, and not just for your skin to look good. Dehydrated skin will lose its elasticity. You are at more risk of developing stretch marks and wrinkles. You will see more signs of aging much sooner than you would if you keep your skin looking good.
Dehydrated skin will also see lower collagen levels. This is necessary to help improve the strength of tissues within the skin. Without collagen, you are more likely to see signs of aging. It is best just to look after your skin.
You will Get More Retinol in Your Body
Many beauty products are now infused with retinol. You may also see it written as retinaldehyde on the ingredients. Either way, you are getting a form of vitamin A into your skin. It is topical, too, which means it will soak into the layers of skin and help to fight off signs of aging.
Your skin becomes lazy in your 30s. This is when you will need to help with the collage production, new skin cell growth, and more.
Remember that poor collagen levels will lead to wrinkles and fine lines. Poor skin cell turnover can lead to dull and boring looking skin. You can also be left with irritated skin that is susceptible to more breakouts.
Adding retinol (and not just moisture) will help to improve your skin’s rejuvenation. It will help to give the skin more life and energy to prevent it from becoming too lazy.
Preventing Damage Is Easier Than Repairing
Quite honestly, you want to use products that will help to avoid damage to your skin, cells, and collagen. It is far easier to prevent the damage and aging than it is to repair it. Once your skin starts to age, you can just prevent the aging process getting worse. You cannot get the skin you used to have back again.
Why not start right now, instead of taking it all for granted? It is not going to take up much time in your day. Just five minutes to start and end your day will help you prevent the damage and aging process taking hold on your skin.
Using products does not mean you can avoid other methods of caring for your skin health. You will still need to take steps to reduce stress and improve your pores. You will just find it easier to tackle them since you will not have to manage the damaging cells at the same time.
Preventing damage will also help you in the future. The nutrients that you get can be fully absorbed and used effectively. If you need to repair, the nutrients will be used for that instead, meaning you need more to prevent future damage.
You will Protect Your Skin from Sun Damage
One of the beauty products you need to invest in is a good quality sunscreen. You can get plenty of options that are chemical free but full of healthy, nourishing ingredients. Spending the extra money on your sunscreen will help you gain the benefits.
Sun damage is a major reason for skin cell damage and aging. You may get a golden look (if you have not burned first), but you will speed up skin cell death, make it harder for new cells to come back, and increase the risk of dark spots and blemishes. You will dry out the skin and can cause damage to the collagen production within the skin.
You will want to spend some time in the sun without sunscreen. You only need 15-30 minutes (depending on skin type) to gain all the vitamin D your body needs for a day. After that, you should cover up and use sunscreen. Apply it 30 minutes before you step out in the sun for the best results, giving it time to soak into the layers of your sun.
Make sure you get a sunscreen that will protect against both UVA and UVB rays. The former are the rays that cause skin cancer, while the second are those that speed up the aging process.
You will Get Makeup to Protect Your Skin
There are chances that you put makeup on every day or so. Even if you just use it now and then, you will want to look at the type of makeup you use. During your 30s, you want to use makeup that will help to protect and repair your skin. This will help to avoid damage and the aging process.
You want makeup that is light and noncomedogenic. This will help to avoid blocking the pores and will keep the face fresh. You still need to remove the makeup at the end of the day, but it is going to be less damaging and pore-blocking than the thicker, drier options.
Always use a primer before adding foundation to your face. This is something you should do, but something you want to do from your 30s. The benefit of a primer is you can add it to your face without other makeup, just to help brighten and even the complexion. When using with foundation, the primer will prevent the makeup from soaking into your pores and blocking them.
Your Skin Needs Vitamin E
Good beauty products will include some vitamin E. You can also buy vitamin E cream, aloe vera cream, or something similar. You want to spend money on these beauty products.
Vitamin E is extremely nourishing. It will add and then lock in moisture. The nutrient will support the growth of new skin cells while preventing current ones from being damaged. You will brighten your skin and improve your health.
The vitamin is also an antioxidant. It will help to battle against oxidative stress in the body, reducing the signs of aging and seven preventing some.
Exfoliating Will Help to Rejuvenate the Skin
One of the beauty products you want to consider adding is an exfoliant. The good news is you do not have to spend a lot of money on this. A brush for your skin is good,or you can make your natural product with some sea salt and oil or lemon and salt or baking soda.
Exfoliating your skin will help to unblock pores and get rid of dead skin cells. It is the dead cells that make your skin look dull and old. When you get rid of them, the newer cells can shine through. Of course, unblocking the pores will also help to reduce problems like bacteria growth and acne.
Don’t exfoliate too much. You only need to do it once a week or so. If you have dry skin, doing it once every two weeks is better. The exfoliating will irritate your dry skin. If you have a skin condition, it is best talking to your doctor about exfoliating and how that is going to affect the health of your skin.
Exfoliating can also help to boost the blood circulation. When you get more blood to the top of your skin, it will appear brighter and newer. You also get more oxygen to it, supporting the health of it.
