Are you a 30-something woman who wants to make some changes for the better? Then here’s the best advice we can give you: take care of your skin. A good skincare routine will not only help you look your best, it’s also going to make you feel good about yourself. Here are our top tips to help you get started.
Get on the double-cleansing bandwagon
The first step to a good skincare routine? Cleansing, of course, particularly double cleansing. Washing your face with a cleansing oil before using a gel or foam cleanser is the only way to get squeaky clean skin without drying it out.
Use the right toner for your skin type
Toners don’t just remove oil and dirt from your pores, they also help correct your skin’s pH balance after cleansing. Since toners come in different formulations, skin care experts recommend that you choose e a toner that’s perfect for your skin type.
Exfoliate once or twice a week a week
If your skin is prone to blemishes even if your 30s, then a good exfoliator is a must-have. Using a natural exfoliator with AHA or BHA will help you get rid of dead skin buildup and minimize pore appearance. It’s the fastest way to brighten your skin for an instant glow.
Pay attention to your peepers
Even if you’re not staying up all night to party anymore, you still need an under-eye cream to keep wrinkles at bay. Since the skin around the eyes is thinner and more prone to darkening, look for a formula that will hydrate and brighten at the same time.
Always apply a moisturizer with SPF
Since your skin is now more susceptible to hyperpigmentation and dark spots, make it a point to apply a moisturizer with SPF before you step out of the house. Even if it doesn’t seem like it’s too sunny out, you need to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
Also, make sure to take better care of yourself. If you’re always skipping a night’s sleep or forgetting to hydrate yourself, it’s definitely going to show in your skin.
