Skincare Tips for Early 30’s
I’ve teamed up with SheSpeaks & Neutrogena for this post. All views are totally my own.
Last week I celebrated my 32 birthday and it was quite an emotional day. Not sure why, but the older I get, the more I turn into a sap on my birthday. Maybe it is the fact that I miss my father’s birthday wishes, or simply because I am to the point where getting older no longer has it’s perks. Regardless, I still need to take care of myself, and that brings me to today’s blog post on Skincare Tips for Early 30’s.
I have always had pretty good facial skin since I can remember. However, as the years flex by I noticed more, and more freckles and discolorations appearing. One day I even noticed puffy eyes were sorta starting to becoming a trend if I did not get my zzzs. Oh, and the extra facial hair? Yeah, that is certainly NOT a cool perk of aging!
Anyhow, those little slightly annoying aging factors caused me to get a heck of a lot more cautious with what I use on my face, when I wash it, and how long I leave makeup on among other things.
Skincare Tips for Early 30’s
Wear a Hat & SPF & Sunglasses: These days when I go out I am basically incognito…haha. I NEVER use to wear a hat when I was younger, and SPF was reserved solely for beach days. Now that I see how quickly freckles and sun spots can occur I make sure to add spf to my skincare routine. I also make a habit to wear a cap for days when I am outdoors a ton, and protect my baby blues from harmful UV rays with sunglasses <===== also something I never really practiced.
Drink Water, and TONS of it: Now that I am older if I lack water I can see it in my face immediately. My eyes look tired, my skin gets super patchy, and I just feel blah! Water with lemon is a favorite to flush out all the toxins in my system.
Use a Moisturizer with Retinol: There are so many amazing skincare creams on the market,but I have officially graduated to the ones that contain small amounts of retinol. This helps to boost your skin’s collagen production which starts to slowly decline in your 30’s.
Exfoliate Weekly: In your 30’s getting lackluster skin that forms dry, flaky patches is pretty common. Between crazy weather, hormones, and makeup, it is pretty easy to get clogged pores, and have a ton of dead surface skin. I am LOVING the Neutrogena® Deep Clean Gentle Scrub. It smells great, and is a lot less harsh than the scrub I was using prior to receiving it. The oil-free formulation gets into those pesky black heads, and reveals a refreshed looking face.
Remove that Makeup: Did you know that leaving on makeup can affect your skin? Free radicals in makeup can damage collagen production, clog pores, and basically make you look older, faster! Back in the day I admit to falling asleep with mascara, and bronzer on, but now I make it a point to use products like Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes.
These makeup remover wipes work so effectively and are also oil-free and gentle on your skin. They are non-abrasive, and one wipe can go a long way! They are so effective at getting off even the toughest makeup that one wipe removed a full face of Halloween makeup off my son!
