If you think anti-ageing skincare is reserved for the over-40s, think again. This drill should be ironed out when you reach your 30s, laying a solid foundation for the care you’re going to take for the rest of your life.
Here thanks to Elle Canada, are some easy tips to follow when you reach your 30s…
Anti aging skin care tip #1: Exfoliate
Exfoliation becomes even more vital as we approach 30. Women in their 30s are concerned about maintaining radiance and brightness, so be sure to exfoliate at least twice a week. This will help rid the skin of dead cells and even out your complexion. Also have a proper skin care regimen in place. This includes always removing makeup before bed, wearing UV protection during the day, as well as cleansing, toning and moisturising. A good toner will help with exfoliation, wipe away residue or impurities, as well as balance out the skin’s pH level for smoother texture.
Anti aging skin care tip #2: Hydrate
Achieving the slightly dewy, almost glistening look gets harder with age, but the right moisturiser can help keep skin supple. Your skin becomes drier as you get older so the moisturizer you used in your 20s may no longer be rich enough. Now is the time to start thinking about wrinkle prevention and upgrading to something more hydrating. Choose cosmetics that help combat dehydration and using foundations that aren’t too heavy. Anything overly powdery will only accentuate fine lines and pores. Start with a non-greasy serum/primer which can be applied around the eyes and lips for intense hydration in just 15 minutes and leaves skin looking radiant all day.
Anti aging skin care tip #3: Use SPF Daily
Practicing sun safety is one of the most important steps to younger looking skin. It’s never too late to start protecting yourself from harmful UV rays by wearing SPF regularly. It’s the best way to slow down the aging process and avoid injury from sun exposure. Choose moisturisers and cosmetics that contain an SPF of 30 or higher to wear on a daily basis. Damage from the sun begins within the first few minutes your skin is exposed to sunlight, even on cloudy days.
