Updated: Nov 5, 2020
Entering your 30s can be great. You can make it even better by taking your skincare more seriously. And trust me, it’s not something to get panicked about. By doing just a few changes in your skincare routine will make a huge difference. Let us talk about the ideal skincare routine YOU should start as soon as you enter your 30s.
Your skin goes through a lot of stress and hormonal swings when you enter your 30s. The hormonal growth slows down and your skin won’t repair by itself as it did in your 20s. However, you can take a stand for your skin and start an anti-ageing skincare routine before you hit your 30th birthday.
So, the first signs of ageing could be dryness, a loss of radiance and a bit of pigmentation. You might also notice dark spots on your face and around your eyes. All of this will be followed by fine lines and wrinkles slowly and steadily.
Your Ideal Anti-Ageing Skincare Routine
Anti-ageing skincare routine doesn’t have to be very complicated. Start with a few key products that work for your skin type. It should contain good ingredients which will help in reducing ageing. What important here is to be consistent with the routine. It is crucial to follow this routine on a daily basis. Hence be ready to spare 15/20 minutes of your day just for your skin.
So, here are the 5 products to use for a perfect anti-ageing skincare routine.
A good Cleanser to kick off the day
It’s always a good idea to have a good, gentle cleanser on hand, especially in the mornings. Give your face a nice wash with a cleanser. It will help to remove the products you used the night before. It will also give your skin an incredible hydrating boost in the morning.
Invest in a high-quality Eye Cream
Eye cream is a MUST product to include in your anti-ageing skincare. The first signs of ageing will start showing around your eyes in the form of dark circles and fine lines. A good eye cream will help you in fighting these signs.
An eye cream will help you in reducing dark circles. It will keep the undereye area bright and eventually will reduce the fine lines around your eyes.
Another surprisingly good benefit of using an eye cream early is that it hydrates the skin to plump it. So when you grow older, you will notice fewer wrinkles due to the habit of using an eye cream from an early age.
A serum will save your life
It’s a smart idea to wear something beneath your SPF and Moisturiser to give your 30s skin extra protection. So what does a serum will help you with? Well, anything and everything anti-ageing.
A serum will help to reduce fine lines. It will visibly remove the signs of ageing on the face if used consistently. It will also help in skin brightening, which is essential when you enter your 30s. A serum will also help to even out the texture and tone of your skin.
We would recommend using a hydrating serum which contains Vitamin E. Vitamin E serum will give you an extra layer of protection from the sun and UV rays. Use your fingers to blend in the serum and tap it into the skin for good 2 minutes. This will help the serum to set in the skin. Also, do not forget to apply serum to your neck area.
Don’t forget your best friend from 20s - Day Cream/Moisturizer
Day Cream or Moisturizer is something no one can ignore. The fact here is that everyone has it but it is highly underrated. A moisturizer will help your skin to hydrate and glow during the whole day. Whether you stay at home or go outside in the sun, moisturizer will save your skin from ageing.
Additionally, it is great if your moisturizer has an SPF. This way you will get sun protection and hydration from one product. You might not know but UV-A rays from the sun cause ageing. If your moisturizer does not have an SPF, we highly recommend using an SPF separately.
Always use 2 pumps of the face cream. One for your face and another for your neck area. Remember, rubbing the leftover moisturizer from your face to your neck is not enough. The neck deserves its own step in your ideal anti-ageing skincare routine.
An anti-ageing moisturizer should be hydrating and should have wrinkle-fighting agents.
Night Cream to brighten up your days
During the night time, your skin goes into the repair mode. So, your nighttime skincare should focus on rejuvenating your skin. Overnight creams or gels will work like wonders.
An ideal (anti-ageing) night cream should have wrinkle-fighting agents like hyaluronic acid and AHAs. It should be s powerhouse of hydration with ingredients like olive oil, shea butter, argan, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid.
Apply it using the same method you use for applying your day cream. And let it do its work overnight. Moreover, it is a healthy habit to have a good 8-hour uninterrupted sleep. Because as you all know Beauty sleep is important.
Other than these steps or products, you need to focus on a few more things to prevent ageing in your early 30s. Drink a good amount of water during the day. Remember, hydration is the key to prevent ageing. We recommend products with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid will work as a great source of hydration for the skin. Sleeping well will also help. Also, having a dedicated morning as well as night time skincare routine will make a huge difference.
We hope these tips and tricks will definitely help to better understand your skin needs when you enter your 30s. Do not forget to use only those products which work for your skin type. There are plenty of products for each and every skin type available on our website. Have a happy 30s!!
