Skin care: Follow these steps to keep your skin glowing in your 30’s
To stay gorgeous through your 30s and after, follow these 8 simple steps.
Early 30s can bring about many unanticipated changes, in both men and women. Your features might harden, you might find yourself at the receiving end of comments like, "you don't smile as much anymore" or you might feel very disheartened and often shot down.
In simpler words, 30 is often the age when you start to see your skin, body and looks change. And in some cases this change is not for the better, unless you start being extra cautious. Moreover, exposure to chemical-based products and pollution leads to further deterioration of the skin. Your skin may lose its natural sheen, and that could add to extra stress, and we all very well know what stress can do to our skin. Is there anything that you can do to reverse the changes, perhaps yes.
Everyone is going to see some kind of changes in their 30s due to hormonal imbalance, but those who indulge in tanning, drinking, smoking, don't exercise regularly and eat poorly, the problems are going to be much worse. Your diet could go a long way in making your skin fabulous, so do not underestimate the power of seasonal fruits, nuts and seeds. To stay gorgeous through your 30s and after, follow these 8 simple steps.
Cleansing: Cleanse your skin each morning and make sure to remove all makeup and cleanse again before bedtime. This allows the skin to perform its essential protective and renewal functions well. Always use products suggested by your dermatologist as there are many products available in the market and picking the right can be confusing.
Exfoliate: Exfoliate at night rather than in the day. Overnight skin is in renewal mode and removing dead skin prior to bedtime enhances the skin's function. Exfoliate gently, just to remove dead skin and if your skin is oily or you've got acne then exfoliating twice a week should be sufficient.
Protect: Protect your skin during the day by combining an antioxidant serum or vitamin C serum with sunscreen as they enhance each other. Be sure to apply the sunscreen first.
Stay hydrated: Make sure that the skin is not dehydrated. Don't spend more than 5 minutes in the shower and use lukewarm water. Use a moisturizing body wash that acts as a protective moisture barrier for the skin.
Sunscreen: Wear a sunscreen with broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection every single day of the year, including raining days and on overcast winter days. UVA rays are "slow agers" which remain constant throughout the year.
Moisturize: Rub in rich intense moisturizing body lotion or apricot oil daily after bathing on a slightly damp body for a healthy, hydrated skin.
Drink water: Drink plenty of water to also stay hydrated internally. Add lemon or lime juice for an extra boost. Eat a healthy and high-fiber diet and workout for at least 15-20 daily.
Stay stress free: Of course that's easier said than done but indulging in a hobby of one's choice works wonders for the skin.
