Looking after your skin in your Thirties

Embracing Timeless Beauty: Skincare in Your Thirties

As you step into your thirties, life becomes a delightful blend of experience, wisdom, and newfound confidence. Your skin, like you, has evolved, and its needs have changed too. While the glow of youth still lingers, this is the time to focus on preserving and enhancing your skin’s natural beauty.

We’ve included a list of tips & products needed to help you maintain a radiant and youthful complexion as you embrace the journey of adulthood.

1. Prioritize Hydration:

In your thirties, your skin’s ability to retain moisture decreases, leading to a loss of elasticity and the appearance of fine lines. Combat this by prioritizing hydration. Opt for a nourishing, hydrating serum, like Erborian’s Super Serum Bamboo with ingredients like hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and plump up the skin. Additionally, continue using a moisturiser suitable for your skin type to keep it supple and well-nourished.

2. Upgrade Your Sunscreen Game:

Sunscreen remains your best defence against premature aging and skin damage caused by UV rays.

In your thirties, consider upgrading to a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a higher SPF to ensure maximum protection. Look for sunscreens, like REN’s Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30, that also offer antioxidant properties to shield your skin from free radicals.

For skin prone to pigmentation and dark spots, try Uriage Bariesun Anti-Brown spot Fluid SPF50+. This anti-brown spot fluid provides very high protection against UVA/UVB, diminishes pigmentation flaws and helps prevent the appearance of brown spots. It is quickly absorbed, leaving an invisible, non-greasy finish.

If you have oily skin and want a sunscreen with a Matifying effect, try using Uriage’s Bariesun Mattifyiung Fluid SPF50+.

This is an ideal sunscreen for combination to oily skin. Its filter complex provides a very high protection against UVA and UVB rays, and Licorice extract and mattifying agents guarantee a no-shine effect through the day.

For sensitive skin, choose Apivita’s Bee Sun Hydra Sensitive Soothing Face Cream SPF50+.

This light texture hypoallergenic cream is specially designed to offer very high protection to sensitive skin, prevent and sooth irritations.

3. Incorporate Anti-Aging Ingredients:

As collagen production slows down in your thirties, you may notice the first signs of aging, such as fine lines and subtle wrinkles. To address these concerns, consider introducing anti-aging ingredients like retinoids (retinol) into your skincare routine. Retinoids promote cell turnover, stimulate collagen production, and can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Try out Pixi Beauty’s Overnight Retinol Oil. A smoothing night oil that helps to restore skin youthfulness and improve the appearance of fine lines and pores.

4. Eye Care is Essential:

 The skin around the eyes is delicate and prone to showing signs of aging, such as crow’s feet and puffiness. Invest in a quality eye cream that targets your specific concerns, whether it’s hydration, dark circles, or fine lines. Gently apply the eye cream using your ring finger, as it applies the least pressure.

5. Exfoliate Wisely:

 Exfoliation remains an important part of your skincare routine in your thirties to remove dead skin cells and encourage a brighter complexion. However, be gentle with exfoliation, as the skin may become more sensitive with age. Opt for chemical exfoliants, containing AHAs or BHAs and limit exfoliating to 2-3 times a week.

We are loving Pixi Beauty’s Clarity Acid Peel right now. Its an effective yet gentle exfoliator that removes impurities and improves the appearance of skin, while helping balance and hydrate to reveal a more radiant, clear and healthier-looking complexion.

You should also try Neogen’s Bio Peel pads.

These easy to use, soft exfoliating pads offer all the benefits of home peeling in one set and are available in 3 variants, Lemon, Green Tea and Wine.

6. Stress Less, Sleep More:

Managing stress and getting enough quality sleep are essential aspects of skincare in your thirties. Stress can lead to skin issues like breakouts and exacerbate signs of aging. Prioritize self-care, practice relaxation techniques, and ensure you get 7-9 hours of sleep each night to let your skin rejuvenate.

7. Mindful Diet and Hydration:

 A healthy diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals can do wonders for your skin’s health. Load up on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats to nourish your skin from within. Additionally, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day to maintain a clear and glowing complexion.

Embrace your self-care journey

Your thirties are a time to celebrate your unique beauty and embrace the journey of self-care. By focusing on hydration, upgrading sunscreen protection, incorporating anti-aging ingredients, and caring for the delicate eye area, you can preserve your skin’s youthful radiance.

Remember to exfoliate wisely, manage stress, prioritize sleep, and maintain a mindful diet and hydration routine. With these skincare tips and a positive attitude towards aging gracefully, you’ll continue to radiate confidence and timeless beauty throughout your thirties and beyond.

Embrace this chapter of your life with joy, knowing that your skin is glowing as bright as your future.
