What To Do When You Hit The Big 30? - Anti Aeging Tips For 30s

You have reached 30 and before you lies an exciting, life-altering decade! You focus on your careers, you decide to start a family, you take out your first mortgage, and you are ready to take on all the challenges! But it is not just your lifestyle that is on the move, your skin is also dealing with its own issues. Your skin is starting to feel a little dry, you notice your first fine lines, and your skin looks tired and dull! But just because you are growing old does not mean your skin has to start showing signs of ageing. Here are some of the best anti-ageing secrets and how you can get youthful skin at 30!

1. Brighten your complexion

When you reach your thirties, your circulation begins to slow down and your skin finds it harder to eliminate toxins. You need to start working on your peachy glow, so that you remain gorgeous and flawless, even if we've only crammed in a few hours' sleep. Too much sun (or resorting to sunbeds), smoking, junk food and alcohol affect melanocyte production, leaving us with an uneven skin tone.

Solution - Apply antioxidant-rich treatments to zap free radicals responsible for dull complexions. For example, if you feel like your skin has lost its radiance, try the Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence by L’Oréal Paris that contains active ingredients like brightening salicylic acid that helps you achieve bright, glowing, and radiant skin. The Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence is one of the best anti-ageing skin care products for 30s because it penetrates up to 10 skin layers deep, exfoliates dead skin cells, and accelerates skin renewal for a smoother, youthful skin inside out. If liver spots are cropping up, apply treatments that regulate melanin production and even out skin tone. If that doesn't work or if your liver spots have dug in their heels, you can always book an appointment with a dermatologist to discuss other options. During winter, opt for a skin-brightening serum that contains fruit acids or anti-ageing active ingredients to remove dead skin cells and exfoliate your epidermis.

2. Use anti-ageing treatments

The dreaded wrinkles have arrived! Crow's feet have settled in, giving us an uneven skin tone and haggard appearance. It's time to spring to action, as on a deeper level your dermis has also begun to suffer from age-related changes. You need to nip things in the bud and slow down this ageing process with anti-ageing treatments as a part of your skincare routine in30s.

Solution – If you are looking for some natural anti-ageing tips, consider making changes to your lifestyle: poor sleeping habits, your diet, smoking and sunbathing are all detrimental to skin. Aim to get enough shut-eye, eat a balanced diet, ditch the ciggies, don't sunbathe too much and protect your skin when you do. Apply multi-tasking anti-ageing treatments that will brighten your complexion, prevent oxidation, moisturize your skin, and combat wrinkles. Pay special attention to the delicate skin around your eyes as these are often the first to give away your age. Use a special eye treatment or cream like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Moisturizing Eye Cream that helps reduce wrinkles and puffiness and replenishes skin texture for a refreshed and radiant look - best anti-ageing night cream for 30s especially for the eyes!.

3. Religiously apply sunscreen

By the time you reach 20, your bodies will have used up more than half of your 'solar capital'. And yet, you still carry on as if nothing's happened - around 75% of people between 15 and 25 years old don't bother applying an SPF higher than 15! So you now need to limit any further damage. Doing so will prevent liver spots, which add years to your skin and dull your complexions.

Solution - Even if you're lounging on a shady terrace, it's still wise to apply a sunscreen suited to your skin type. One of the best anti-ageing tips for 30s is to opt for an SPF of between 30 and 50 and re-apply it every couple of hours. During autumn, when in town or even on cloudy days, make sure you use a day cream that contains an SPF. Start incorporating sunscreen in your anti-ageing skincare and your skin will be left moisturised and protected! The L’Oréal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence sunscreen is perfect for when you want to shield yourself from the damaging sun rays while also keeping your skin soft and hydrated. The ultra-fresh texture of the UV Perfect Aqua Essence melts into the skin instantly and enhances your skin’s natural radiance. And that’s not all, the Vitamin E in the sunscreen helps the skin fight against free radicals and helps repair the skin against the signs of ageing.

4. Treat yourself to face masks

Moisturising your skin is THE one-way ticket to a flawless complexion. Whatever age you are, you need to fully hydrate your skin for it to feel supple and comfortable. At 30, your skin starts to dry out and the passage of time begins to make its mark. Moisturising should be an essential part of the anti-ageing skincare, if you want to keep wrinkles at bay.

Solution – As a part of your skincare routine for 30s, apply moisturisers that contain hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or glycerin, pamper your face with a hydrating face mask once or twice a week by slathering on a thick layer and leaving it for 10 - 15 minutes. Your skin will bathe in active ingredients - shea butter, vegetable oils, vitamin E, trace elements - and give you immediate results. Radiant, plump, supple skin guaranteed!

As you grow, your body and your skin constantly undergoes changes, and that should not be any reason to worry. Simply adapt your skincare routine and products according to your age and choose the right products for your skin type. Remember to keep your skin hydrated and nourished at all times to keep the signs of ageing at bay.
