Skincare In Your 30’s
30’s is typically the age when a woman begins to think about anti ageing. As we age there is a whole bunch of new beauty rules to be followed, it’s not the same as it was in the 20’s, all thanks to our skin getting more sensitive as we age. This is the time when it’s important to invest in good skin care products. No matter how well you have taken care of your skin earlier, you might start noticing fine lines and wrinkles eventually.
Dark skinned women might notice some discoloration, whereas fair skinned women might see some hyperpigmentation in the form of brown spots. As we grow older our skin becomes finer and thinner and there is loss of collagen, and the cell turnover begins to slow down, which is why the skin starts looking dull.
Start paying attention to your skin by following these simple steps.
It is important to choose creams and serums which are light weight, as thicker creams can make you look greasy and greasy skin is more prone to breakouts, and we don't want that!
We recommend you to try:
- Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturiser.
- Forest Essentials Soundarya Radiance Cream With 24K Gold And SPF25
Introducing anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C and E in your skincare regime will help protect your skin from the damage caused by the environmental radicals such as sun exposure, smoking, and of course pollution and stress, which by the way are the main contributors for premature ageing. Including a good eye cream is a must, as your under eye skin is thinner than the rest of the skin on the face and we tend to ignore it thinking regular moisturiser will do the work, but that’s not the case, our undereye needs some extra love too!
We recommend you to try:
- Kaya Antox Vit C Formula
- Kaya Skin Recovery Night Cream (Old - Kaya Overnight Skin Replenisher)
- Facial Oils.
As we enter our 30’s our skin starts loosing hydration, softness and bounce. A good facial oil will help regain the hydration, making your skin feel soft and supple/bouncy again.

Avoiding sugar is impossible, but it’s important to balance the diet, eat more greens and less of sugar and caffeine, as these increases the signs of ageing and worsening the condition.
You can replace sugar with different substitute like.

- Stevia, which is a natural sugar alternative.)
- Sunscreen! An essential.
We can’t stress enough on the importance of a sunscreen and how it protects your skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays. Wearing a good broad spectrum sunscreen is important, whether you are indoors or outdoors, as sunrays pass through our windows, and UVA rays are emitted through the gadgets that we all cannot live without, resulting in premature ageing. Reapply your sunscreen every 3 hours for best results.
