Every woman needs to take care of her skin (aka a good skincare regimen is essential no matter how old you are!) This will prevent aging.
The skin starts to age when you’re in your 30’s, so it’s the perfect time to begin a regimen that will stop ageing in it’s tracks. These beauty tips for women in their 30s are also suitable for women who are slightly younger and even older.
1. Use Sunscreen
OK, it’s a sin to live in Nigeria and not use sunscreen! And it doesn’t matter if it’s a sunny day or not. That’s because UVA/UVB rays can filter through the clouds and get to your skin, without you even feeling the heat of the sun. Getting sun burnt is the fastest way to age your skin. So girl, if you plan to stay young for a long time, wear your sunscreen!
One of the most important beauty tips for women in their 30s is exfoliation. This is because in your 30s, your skin is not shedding dead skin cells as fast as it used to. So exfoliating is the way to help the process along. Exfoliating twice a week will keep those dead skin cells where they need to be, away from your face.
3. Eat Healthy
Having a young beautiful skin doesn’t just entail fancy creams and lotions alone. Eat lots of fruits and veggies and try to stay away from junk food.
4. Use A Day And Night Cream
To properly care for your skin you need two separate face creams and this is why, your skin functions differently in the day and at night. During the day, your skin is in ‘defend and protect mode‘. What this means is that during the day, your skin works to protect itself from oxidants, toxins, stress etc. Day creams are designed to support this process.
In the night your skin goes into repair mode, where it actively tries to repair and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep. Night creams provide your skin with all it needs to rejuvenate.
Having both creams ensures that your skin has all it needs to function properly at all time. It might cost you a few extra bucks but trust us, your skin will thank you for it.
5. Have A Good Work-out Plan
Exercising isn’t only for people who want to lose weight. A good work-out actually helps your skin because it improves blood circulation and helps to flush out waste from your system.
6. Use A Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is a very powerful anti-oxidant that packs a punch when it comes to benefits for the skin. It fades discolouration and dark skin spots. It brightens the skin and also reverses damage from sun burn. A vitamin C serum with 20% vitamin C will keep your skin youthful and glowy.
7. Include Hyaluronic Acid In Your Skincare Regimen
This is one of the most raved anti-aging ingredient in the beauty industry. It has incredible moisturizing properties and it keeps the skin very elastic. Using hyaluronic acid twice a day will make your skin less prone to wrinkles and fine lines.
8. Get Your Beauty Sleep
This is probably the most underrated skincare advice there is. You’ll be amazed the difference a good night’s sleep can make to eye bags and dark circles! It’s the reason the phrase ‘beauty sleep‘ was coined. When you don’t sleep enough, your skin won’t have enough time to rejuvenate.
These beauty tips for women in their 30s will keep your skin beautiful well into your 40s and even after, if you’re consistent.
