Your job and family tend to take priority in your 30’s which means less time to spend on yourself. Dealing with less sleep, more stress, hormonal changes, and young children can all have an effect on our skin. There’s never been a better time to get into a healthy routine with your skincare. Here are our top healthy habits to adopt in your 30’s.
Use an eye cream
As the under-eye area has no oil glands, it’s one of the first areas to show visible signs of aging. An eye cream containing retinol will help to minimise fine lines and wrinkles. Alternatively, use an eye cream with caffeine to stimulate the under-eye area and help smooth and soothe the skin.
Get a good night’s sleep
Speaking of the eye area, getting a good night’s sleep will help to refresh your complexion. Remember to remove your makeup before you go to sleep and apply an effective skincare routine.
Healthy skin needs constant hydration. Ideally, you should be drinking 8 glasses of water per day to help to flush out toxins and moisturise your skin.
Avoid sun damage
Sun damage is one of the worst things you can do for your complexion. Our 30’s tends to be the time when our skin begins to show sun damage in the form of pigmentation or sun spots. As well as using products to combat these, it’s important to avoid going out in the sun without sunscreen, especially if you’re using products containing AHA’s or retinol.
Change your skincare with the season
In winter, our skin requires more moisture due to harsh weather conditions and indoor heating. This means using hydrating products, including serums and toners.
