As you age, there are certain things happen to your skin both externally- what you see-and internally-what you do not see. With age, your skin gets thinner and underlying fat can also diminish. Once you turn 30 your skin is more vulnerable to becoming damaged and fine lines begin to appear. Your skin loses some of its elasticity. It becomes drier as a result of the production of less essential oil. These changes result in reducing the skin’s ability to mitigate the bad effect of sun exposure and other environmental factors.
Women in their 30s are often juggling with their career highs and lows, even pregnancy, small children, and households that may lead to some changes in their complexion and well being. At this time of aging your biggest skin concern may be caused by sun damage or melasma. Now it is important during this time of life to get serious about taking better care of your skin and making healthy habits a priority. Smart anti-aging regimen, good skincare habits will help to set the course of bright, healthy skin.
Get started by following skin care tips for 30 plus Women given here:
1. Cleanse your skin each morning and make sure to remove makeup before going to bed and cleanse again.
2. In 30s skin cell turnover begins to slow down, leading to dull and uneven skin tone. To counter this effect on skin you should do regular exfoliation and moisturizing treatment. It is better to exfoliate at night rather than in day time as this will leave your skin in renewal mode and removing the dead cell before bedtime enhances the skin’s function. Your exfoliation should be gentle and it is better to use homemade. You can prepare exfoliation recipe at home with granulated sugar, ground coffee, and freshly squeezed lemon, orange or lime.
3. At 30 your skin becomes drier so you need to moisturize more frequently in the day. You can prepare your own moisturizer for hydrating the facial skin at home. Take distilled water and mix 3-4 drops of rose or chamomile essential oil and keeps this mixture in a spray bottle. Carry it with you and keep spraying your face frequently in the day, especially in an air-conditioned environment. Shake well before spraying, your face will feel refreshed and re-hydrated.
