You are never the same person as you were yesterday and neither is your skin. When you think about it, your habits, opinions and attitude are probably very different from when you were in your early 20s compared to your late 20s. Just like you learned to listen to what your soul wants, you should also pay attention to what your skin needs. Turning 30 may seem a bit scary, but this opens the doors to a new stage of your life. Therefore, embrace these changes and don’t forget to update your skincare routine as well.
Go heavier on your night skincare
When you get closer and closer to turning 30, your skin also shows the signs of aging. Of course, you don’t have to jump on some really strong anti-aging skincare products if there’s really no need for that yet. However, you may want to think about retaining moisture and boosting your skin’s collagen production. With that in mind, you can look into some early anti-aging night creams and lotions. What’s more, retinol serums are a perfect choice for the nighttime since this vitamin A derivative fights the first signs of aging and lack of elasticity quite effectively.
Boost your daily moisture
It’s very important that you don’t skip your skincare it the morning. Your nearly 30-year-old skin needs all the moisture it can get. You probably feel it as well. The dry and tingly sensation you get in the morning after washing your face is a clear sign that you need to treat your skin. Even if you don’t like feeling something heavy on your face during the day, you can easily find light lotions with hyaluronic acid that will provide enough moisture without making your skin greasy.
Don’t forget about SPF
The truth is that no matter how much you enjoy sunny weather, the sun can extremely speed up your skin’s aging process – unless you protect it adequately. Essentially, don’t ignore your skin’s need for proper SPF even during the winter months. There are plenty of extremely lightweight SPF skincare products on the market nowadays. What’s more, you can easily find an effective daily moisturizer that already contains proper SPF in it.
Don’t skip cleansing
It may seem tempting to just go to sleep without properly washing your face. However, this is one of the worst things that you can do to your skin, especially when you’re close to hitting 30. Not removing dirt and makeup before going to bed can actually boost the aging process and cause various skin issues. This is why it’s very important to properly clean your face in the evening, but in the morning as well. You can choose gentler skincare cleansing options for your mornings and something that’s a bit stronger but not too harsh for the evenings.
Embrace the oils
Treating your skin with something richer is definitely a routine you should look forward to in your 30s. So, even if you’ve never used oils before, now may be a great time to start. There are plenty of effective and hydrating skincare oils on the market and you should definitely do your research to find the one(s) that will suit your skin’s needs the best. It doesn’t matter if you still struggle with excessive sebum production. Proper oils can bring the balance back to your skin, provide it with deep hydration and make it softer and more radiant than ever.
There’s no reason to fear the number 30. A change that leads to the future is always a good one. The time continues to pass regardless of what we do or want. So, why not tune in and enjoy the process?
