Anti-aging in your 30's
When you hit your 30s, a lot of it is accomplished via good skincare habits that you started in your teenage years, like staying hydrated, cleansing your face at night and preventing too much sun exposure. You should absolutely ramp up your efforts in those regards once you’re in your 30s—and if you haven’t been doing these things, it’s never too late to start.
However, there are additional steps that need to be included if you’ve been noticing some of the common side effects of aging, like fine lines and dryness. Here are the top four things you can be doing in your 30s to maintain your gorgeous skin.
1. Start using a low irritant/highly active Vitamin A.
The first thing you should do if you want to step up your anti-aging game is start using Vitamin A. Both prescription retinoid and over-the-counter retinols have powerful anti-aging properties, but can also make your skin prone to pigmentation and sensitivity when over used. We recommend a more serious approach to skincare using a clinical Vitamin A (Lumi Vitamin A Repair) specially created to ensure it travels deep into the skin to boost collagen and avoids the above side effects. Once you’ve successfully implemented Vitamin A into your routine, you’ll love how smooth and radiant your skin looks. It can even help out with adult acne and scarring!
2. Try a peel.
We would recommend investing your time and money in a gentle facial peel 3 x per year. Selecting the right one, you’ll see improvements in your skin’s tone, texture, and firmness—especially if you’re concerned with wrinkles, large pores, and redness can benefit hugely from regular peels. Powerful ingredients such as lactic acid, TCA for chemical exfoliation, as well as retinol—which we all agree is a skincare essential achieves fantastic results. So book in ASAP
3. Use a chemical exfoliant regularly.
If you haven’t incorporated any chemical exfoliants into your beauty routine, now is the time to start. Chemical exfoliants are ideal for unclogging pores and removing dead skin, without the harsh abrasion and irritation that comes with rough physical exfoliation. They come in two forms: AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) like glycolic acid, and BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) like salicylic acid. Natasha Cook's Concentrated Clarifyer
Don’t be afraid to have a Laser facial. Depending on the procedure, it can be quick and relatively painless or more powerful; but either way, lasers can give you some seriously noticeable results. Non-ablative lasers help to stimulate collagen under the skin (which is what you want to do for smoother, firmer skin). This is done without pain, recovery time or side effects (other than some possible redness). Traditional laser skin resurfacing, on the other hand, will sting and take a few days/week of recovery—but it’s very effective because it destroys old, damaged skin and allows new skin to grow.
