Your 30s, the good news is pimples and breakouts should have subsided by now. But the bad news is this means your skin in drier. You’ll likely start to see more imperfections such as dark spots, pigmentation, fine lines and enlarged pores. With the glory days of your 20-year-old skin starting to fade it’s important to focus on hydration and yes, begin incorporating (dreaded) anti-aging skincare products into your regime. We promise they’re not that scary (and no it doesn’t mean you are old!).
Step 1: Exfoliate
Exfoliation forms a vital step in evening skin tone and helping to reduce imperfections. But don’t go overboard! You should only be exfoliating twice to three times a week and if you are using something intensive for example our 24K Gold Peel-Off Mask then you should skip the exfoliating for the rest of the week.
Step 2: Antioxidants
With increased work responsibilities and children, life in your 30s can be stressful. It’s important to incorporate antioxidant skincare products into your daily routine. These antioxidants scavenge free radicals (the nasty molecules that cause skin aging) and prevent them causing damage to the skin. Skin Republic Platinum Lift Face Mask is choke-full of antioxidant rich pomegranate, platinum and trehalose. We know that the stress hormone, cortisol wreaks havoc on your skin so remember to take time out and pamper yourself with a treat like a sheet mask.
Step 3: Retinol
Retinol. If there was a skincare soulmate in your 30s this would be it. Tailor made to target the primary concerns of 30-year-old skin such as pigmentation, uneven skin tone, dark spots, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles and even adult acne. Try it in our Retinol Hydrogel Under Eye Patches to target fine lines and dark circles and in our Retinol Hydrogel Face Mask Sheet for an overall face treat.
