6 Skincare must-haves for 30 and over
Turning 3-0 is a significant milestone — at least, it feels like it. No more 20s!
This means you are officially an adult. This also means that you will have to start taking your skin a little more seriously because even adults break out from time to time.
But there's one problem: you're still using the same skincare products from when you were 20. Yikes! That's where we come in.
We've compiled a list of six must-have products to help you bring your 20s back, one product at a time.
Here’s what you should do to look good at 30 and beyond!. Read on.
A go-to Cleanser
A cleanser clears impurities and excess oil that clogs pores and dull skin. However, some products contain harmful ingredients that may damage your skin instead of keeping it healthy.
When choosing the right cleanser for your face, consider getting a gentle and soap-free product that will help maintain your skin's pH level.
A hydrating Toner
Swiping a toner in your face may be an extra step in your skincare routine, but it's also a great way of removing any residual dirt left after you cleanse your face.
A toner will help refine pores and remove excess oil and dirt that causes acne, blackheads, and unwanted impurities.
An all-around Serum
Most, if not all, serums are formulated with vitamin C. These products are meant to treat and rescue your skin from hyperpigmentation.
Have at least one serum--ideally, one that can do skin brightening while giving a smooth texture and fights acne.
Serums are like potions packed with active ingredients. They were created to mitigate any signs of aging. It's like having the fountain of youth in a bottle.
An Eye Cream that can tackle dark circles and wrinkles
The skin under our eye is one of the parts of our face that gives out the earliest signs of aging. It's also the thinnest skin in our body; hence it requires a different kind of care compared to the rest of our face.
A regular moisturizer won't be enough to care for your under-eye. Don't be afraid to use an eye cream formulated with retinol and vitamin A.
You might also think that using a face cream with the same ingredient is enough; however, eye creams are specially developed with a lower concentration of retinol and in a more emollient base to boost hydration while reducing the risk for irritation.
A Moisturizer with hyaluronic acid
One of the most common misconceptions about moisturizers is that you don't need them if you have oily skin. Oily skin is not equivalent to hydrated skin.
In fact, when you moisturize your skin, the sebum levels will decrease, and your skin will become less oily.
Use light and fast-absorbing moisturizers that will not leave your skin feeling icky and looking slick. Opt for less greasy emollients.
Get a good moisturizer that keeps the skin hydrated and nourishes it (without breaking out the skin)!
Dermatologically formulated maximum Photoprotection
Now that you have the perfect skincare routine at night don't forget to protect your skin whenever you leave the house or stay indoors during the day.
It's not just the sun that can cause damage to your skin; even UV light emitted from phone and computer screens can lead to skin damage and premature skin aging.
Wear an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen in the morning as the final step to complete your skincare routine.
We hope this guide has been helpful. Skincare should be fun, not dull, so go forth and enjoy your newfound freedom to do more of what you want, which hopefully includes taking care of your skin. The best skin of your life is waiting for you out there!
