Turning 30 is a big turning point in everybody's life and usually, the one that scares us the most. There are certain expectations that we all strive to meet by the time we're 30 so we feel better when we do (finding our dream job, buying a first car and/or apartment, meeting the one, etc.) But there is one thing women fear the most - looking old(er). In our 20s we still feel young, but the moment we turn the big 3 we think it shows on our skin. Even if that's not the case, we should definitely start taking care of our skin more. As much as we don't want to face it, our skin does start losing elastin and collagen in our 30s. It's a harsh fact we have to accept. Fortunately, there are a few things we can do to postpone aging and feel young(er) again. Read the following list and learn to take care of your skin like a pro!
A lot of people don't know this, but sunscreen plays a big role when it comes to face skin and its course of aging. Everybody thinks we should use sunscreen only in the summertime and most people don't even use SPF because they want a tan and think SPF will prevent them from getting one. Well, you could not be more wrong! You should know that sunscreen blocks out both UVB and UVA rays which are bad for your skin and can cause cancer. Using SPF daily will prevent skin cancer, sun spots, hyperpigmentation and premature aging. That's why it's important to have it on your skin every day, even in winter. Sun is up all day and so should be your sunscreen!
Retinoids are vitamin A-based drugs used for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. They increase the production of collagen, the main structural protein that your skin starts to lack in your 30s. Also, when using retinol the production of new blood vessels is highly stimulated which means it evens out skin pigmentation. You have to be persistent with retinol because it takes a little time before it shows its results. But don't give up hope because it's all worth it. After a few months, you will see an improvement when it comes to wrinkles but the full potential of retinol is visible after 6 to 12 months.
Don't Forget to Hydrate
If you want radiant and smooth skin with an even complexion then you have to hydrate it. The easiest thing you can do is drink a lot of water. This may seem trivial but it's crucial! Daily water intake is the first step to younger-looking skin. However, drinking water is not enough, so you should definitely consider using a moisturizer. To put it simply, moisturizer attracts moisture from the environment and keeps it in your skin. One more thing you should know is that the moisturizer is not just for dry skin. There are moisturizers suitable for greasy and normal skin as well. It's recommended to use it every day at the same time to get your skin used to the new regimen. After using it your skin will look, feel and be fresh!
Get Dermal Fillers
If you want to take things to the next level we recommend dermal fillers treatments. This non-surgical option is a great solution to your problems. Dermal fillers are actually made of hyaluronic acid, a substance found in our body. As we age, there is less and less HA in our body and that's why we may look older than we feel. With dermal fillers, you can boost certain parts of your face and make them younger instantly. They will rejuvenate and reshape your face while maintaining a natural look. They are used to treat acne, wrinkles, fine lines and can be injected into lips, nose, jawline, forehead, cheeks, etc. The best part is they last up to 2 years!
Turning 30 is scary, but it's not the end of the world. You're still young and so is your skin. Even though you will experience a few changes skin-wise, with a few skincare tricks and products you can still feel and look radiant. There is a lot of room for improvement and it's not too late to start taking care of it now. After all, the 20s are for making mistakes and the 30s are for making amends.
