A good cleansing routine
The first step in taking care of your skin at 30 is to be faithful to your cleansing routine. Washing the face twice a day is necessary to eliminate the sebum produced by the sebaceous glands and the residues accumulated during the day. The ideal is to clean the face in the morning when waking up and at night before going to bed. To cleanse the face, you should use a facial cleanser preferably in gel, pH neutral and free of aromas, and then an astringent tonic. Choose both products according to your skin type: dry, mixed, oily.
No make up
Remove makeup from your face every day. Makeup builds up in the pores of your skin and if we don’t remove it, it stays on your complexion and can cause redness, blackheads, acne, swelling and enlarged pores. To remove makeup from your skin, use a soapy makeup remover, preferably in gel form, and rinse your face with plenty of water. The makeup remover wipes are a good option for those nights when you go to a party and arrive very tired, however, their regular use is not recommended because they do not remove makeup 100%. If you use waterproof mascara or long-lasting lipstick, use a special makeup remover to remove this type of cosmetic.
Moisture and vitamins
Moisturizing is important for skin care at 30. Moisturizing not only makes the skin soft, but allows it to remain glowing, firm, healthy and free of dryness. Choose a moisturizer rich in vitamin A and according to your age, prefer a light one and avoid those that are greasy. Also, it is important that at this age you already use creams to prevent wrinkles, opt for those that offer to firm the skin and contain hyaluronic acid. Similarly, do not forget that the eye contour is the most delicate area of the face and needs other types of care, therefore, at 30 it is advisable to use a light eye cream, preferably in gel and containing vitamin E.
One option for caring for your skin at 30 is to use homemade moisturizing skin masks. They are a simple and economical way to nourish your skin and enjoy all the properties of natural ingredients such as olive oil and avocado. It is advisable to apply them to the face, neck and neckline and leave them on for 20 minutes and then remove them with warm water.
Sleeping eight hours is very important to take care of the skin at 30. While we sleep, the skin regenerates and a greater amount of collagen is produced, which is responsible for keeping our skin firm and preventing the muscle from starting to fall out. Unfortunately, collagen is not produced all your life, so it is necessary that you take advantage of this decade to rest properly, fight insomnia, avoid late nights and enjoy this process of automatic regeneration, while you can.
Consume foods rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are the only ones capable of reducing and combating the negative effect that free radicals cause to the cells of the body. And in case you didn’t know, one of the main damages of the free radicals is to cause premature aging. Combat cellular aging by consuming antioxidant foods such as cabbage, carrots, salmon, olive oil, nectar, tomatoes and red wine.
Hydrate as much as possible. Water cannot be missing from your body if you want to have a glowing skin. Moisturizing the body is very important because it helps the intestinal transit and also stimulates the work of the kidneys. Both benefits allow the body to release toxins and prevent fluid retention, which is very good for your skin because it will look healthy and healthy.
If you don’t do it now, it won’t help if you do it later: you must protect your skin from the sun every day. Make using sunscreen a habit like brushing your teeth or eating breakfast. UV rays penetrate the dermis and burn your skin and wither your cells. When a skin has been exposed to the sun without protection, it is more likely to age faster, dry out, wrinkle and freckle, which are nothing more than a warning sign of severe damage to the dermis.
So, to avoid this you should only buy a sunscreen (protection factor 60) and apply it before leaving the house all over your body, every day and touch up at noon. No matter if it rains or the sun burns, you should always, always, apply your sunscreen.
