Entering your 30s is an exciting time that can come with quite a few changes. Our skin isn’t excluded from those changes! Fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation are just a few of the signs of aging on our skin. However, you can take steps to look and feel your best with our essential skincare tips for your 30s.
Many women mention a renewed sense of self-confidence during their 30s, and finding the perfect skincare routine can help maintain that feeling! Keep reading to learn more about how your skin changes in your 30s and the best tips to look and feel your best.
Why is skincare in your 30s so important?
Your 30s are the prime time for dullness, dryness, wrinkles, and the like to start appearing on your skin. These signs of aging are caused by the loss of elasticity and collagen that happens over time. Add the stress that comes with work or family pressures, and it’s easy to see how your complexion can start to change!
Is it too late to start a skincare routine in your 30s?
The simple answer: no! It’s never too late to start giving your skin the proper care. While it’s always best to start early, you can find the perfect routine for your skin type with a bit of help from the team at Dermatology Realm.
If a skincare routine that consists of more than a quick face wash in the shower leaves your head spinning, don’t worry! You can start by simply:
- Removing your makeup every night
- Wear sunscreen every day
- Add a hydrating serum to your morning and evening routines
Now that you have an excellent place to start, let’s take the following steps!
Wash your face twice a day
Cleanse your face in the morning when you wake up and at the end of the day before you go to bed. Our team at Dermatology Realm recommends Obagi skin care products to help you get a gentle yet thorough clean. A cleanser will remove any dirt and debris that builds up throughout the day and while you sleep.
Say goodbye to makeup wipes!
They may seem convenient, but makeup wipes can be harmful to your skin in your 30s. Makeup wipes can contain alcohol that can cause sensitivity and dehydration, especially as we age!
Try to keep your regular face wash next to your sink to have easy access before bedtime. This will help you remember to wash off any makeup and help you build a consistent routine that will last throughout your 30s.
Moisturizing is the best thing you can do for your skin! Obagi Hydrate and Hydrate Luxe will provide you with instant moisture, day or night. If you’ve started to notice dry or flaky skin in your 30s, visit our Germantown office for an appointment with one of our providers to learn if Obagi is right for you.
Add serum and sunscreen to your daily routine
A lightweight serum is a great way to add a layer of moisture to your skin. Obagi Elastiderm serum is a great product that adds moisture and protects and restores your skin’s natural elasticity.
Sunscreen provides essential protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays that can cause spots, scarring, and even skin cancer. We offer a variety of sunscreen options for every skin type, and our team is always happy to find the product that is the best for you!
Treat your eyes
The corners around your eyes are often the first places wrinkles appear. This is because the skin around your eyes is thinner than the rest of the face. Elastiderm eye cream effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so adding it to your routine in your 30s can help prevent this sign of aging.
