When it comes to skincare basics, everyone needs a quality facial cleanser, exfoliator, moisturizer, and sunscreen. These 4 products are not negotiable. You have got to have them and use them daily. Once you hit your 30s, you may start noticing early signs of skin aging, such as laugh lines or slight wrinkles around your eyes and across your forehead. While it’s too soon to freak out, it’s not too soon to start taking care of your skin and to start incorporating anti-aging skin care products into your daily routine.
One easy way to do this is by adding a moisturizer or serum with antioxidants into your daily skin care routine in order to give your skin an anti-aging boost.
Sun protection is hands down, your best line of defense against skin aging. 90% of premature aging is caused by UV rays, so use sunscreen every single day. It’s important to reapply sunscreen as needed throughout the day, and don’t forget to apply it to your hands and neck as those areas of our body really show our true age. There are so many different types of facial sunscreens to choose from that after trying a few you should be able to find a favorite.
If puffy eyes, dark circles or crow’s feet (wrinkles around your eyes) are a problem for you then an eye cream is a great product to add to your routine. Eye cream is not a necessity if you aren’t having major skin concerns around your eye area. If you do use an eye cream think about getting one with SPF already in it. This way you are protecting the delicate skin around your eyes from further sun damage. Your 30s are prime time for motherhood and fatherhood, so if you’re up all night with the baby, chances are good you’ll have dark under eye circles.
