Hitting your 30’s is already a huge thing considering that you have already passed your awkward stage but now you are entering the phase where premature aging is going to appear any time soon. If you’ve been taking care of your skin for some time now, you don’t have to worry much about seeing lines and wrinkles appearing on your skin. If not, it’s not too late to start focusing your attention on skin care.
If you are wondering where to begin with your skin care regimen, these tips might be a good place to start.
Pay attention to your diet. Your diet plays a huge role on how your skin will look and feel which is why you should pay attention to what you eat. Adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet and cutting back and salty and sugar laden foods can have a positive impact to your health.
Wear sunscreen daily. If you think that wearing sunscreen should only be done during the summer, think again. The UV rays that are coming from the sun are actually damaging your skin when you are constantly outdoors. Without proper protection, exposure to sunlight can break down your skin cells thus speeding up the aging process. So make it a habit to apply sunscreen every time you step outside your home.
Face masks work. You don’t really have to go to the spa to get a face mask because you can actually make your own face mask using natural ingredients. The best thing about doing your own face mask is that you have control over the ingredients that you are going to use. One example is to apply yogurt on your face and neck. Leave it on for a few minutes or until it has dried then rinse afterwards. The yogurt face mask will help lock in the moisture and tighten your pores even so that it will prevent acne from breaking out.
Find a good dermatologist. If you have skin issues that just don’t go away, it would be better for you to look for a reliable dermatologist to help you address the problem. Set an appointment so you can discuss possible treatments and even get advice on how to prevent skin inflammation and premature aging.
Exercise. Of course, you shouldn’t forget about exercising if you want to stay in good shape especially in your 30’s. Not only will working out help you manage your weight but it can also contribute to tight and smooth skin in the long run. Sweating allows your body to expel toxins from your system thus reducing your risk of inflammation and other health issues.
Moisturize. Whatever you do, don’t forget to moisturize. Moisturizing your face helps keep your skin smooth and supple and free from signs of premature aging. After you wash your face, apply moisturizer. Before you apply makeup, put on some moisturizer. Your skin will thank you in the long run because it doesn’t become dry at all.
Exfoliate is good for you. Your skin can become dull and dry because of the accummulation of dead skin cells on the surface. One way to reveal radiant looking skin is through exfoliation. There are pre-made scrubs available or you can make your own scrubs using raw sugar and your choice of oil. The gritty texture of raw sugar can exfoliate your skin gently while the oil (olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil) can help moisturize your skin to prevent dryness.
These beauty tips are sure to help you manage your skin as you age. The best thing about these steps is that they can help keep premature aging at bay which is a plus if you are aiming to stay young looking in the long run.
