How to Care for Your Skin at 30
Skin care at 30 will determine a positive or negative difference in our ageing. Many women's best moments of maturity are at 30: the production of collagen is still active, our skin still regenerates itself while we sleep and the excesses still do not take their toll. Therefore this is the best time to care for our skin so to age with dignity. If you want to reach 70 like Jane Fonda, learn in this OneHowTo article how to care for your skin at 30.
The first step to care for skin at 30 is to be faithful to your cleansing routine. Wash your face twice a day, it is necessary to remove the oils produced by the sebaceous glands and residues accumulated through the day. Ideally cleanse the face in the morning when waking and at night before bed. To clean your face, you should use a facial cleanser, preferably a pH neutral gel which is fragrance free, and then an astringent tonic. Choose the two products according to your skin type: dry, combination, oily.
Remove make-up every day. Make-up accumulates in the pores of the skin and if not removed, it stays in the skin and may cause redness, blackheads, acne, swelling and open pores. To removing make-up use a soapy cleanser, preferably in gel, and rinse your face with water. Cleansing wipes are a good choice for late nights when you return late and very tired, but regular use is not recommended because it does not remove make-up 100%. If you use waterproof mascara or long lasting lipstick use a special cleaner that removes this type of cosmetics.
Moisturizingis important to care for your skin at 30. Moisturizing does not only provide softness to the skin, it allows it to stay shiny, strong, healthy and free of dryness. Choose a moisturiser rich in vitamin A and suitable for your age, prefer a light cream and avoid those that are greasy. It is also important at this age to prevent wrinkles, choose creams that offer firm skin and contain hyaluronic acid. Similarly, do not forget that the eye contour is the most delicate area of the face and needs added care. When in your 30s it is recommendable to use cream for the contour of eyes. Choose a light one preferably in gel and containing vitamin E.
One option for skin care at 30 is to use homemade skin moisturizing masks. They are an easy and inexpensive way to nourish your skin and enjoy all the properties of natural ingredients like olive oil and avocados. It is advisable to apply these on the face and neck and leave for 20 minutes, then remove with warm water.
Sleeping eight hours is also very important for skin care at 30. During sleep, the skin regenerates and generates a greater amount of collagen, which is responsible for keeping our skin firm and prevent muscles from falling. Unfortunately, collagen is not produced throughout our lifetimes. It is therefore necessary to take advantage of this decade to rest properly; fight insomnia, avoid late nights and enjoy this automatic regeneration process while you can.
Consume foods rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are the only ones able to reduce and combat the negative effect on body cells caused by free radicals. And in case you did not know, the major damage cause by free radicals is premature ageing. Fight cellular ageing by consuming antioxidant foods like cabbage, carrot, salmon, olive oil, nuts, tomato and red wine.
Hydrate as much as you can. Water can not be missing in your body if you want to have glowing skin. Hydrating the body is very important because it helps intestinal transit and also stimulates the work of the kidneys. Both benefits allow the body to release toxins and prevent fluid retention, which is very good for your skin because it will look fresh and healthy.
If you do not do this now it will not help to do it at a later date: you must always protect your skin from the sun. Make the use of sunscreen a habit like brushing your teeth or eating breakfast. UV rays penetrate the dermis, burn your skin and wither cells. When skin is exposed to the sun without protection it is more likely to age faster, to dry, to wrinkle and freckle; all of these are nothing more than an alarm of severe damage in the dermis.
So, to avoid this you just have to buy a sunscreen (SPF 60) and apply it over your body before leaving the house every day and apply more at midday. No matter if it is rainy or sunny, you should always apply protector.
Finally, to care for your skin at 30 you can begin to help it with any moisturizing or firming treatment in specialized beauty centers. Radio frequency, platelet rich plasma, deep facial cleansing, the options are many and only an expert can advise you in cosmetic dermatology. And yes, 30 is too young to apply botulinium toxin. Do not waste resources that could serve you in the future. Beware!
