skincare tips in your 30s

How the skin changes in your 20s

Did you know that skin cell turnover starts slowing down as early as your twenties? By your thirties, dead cells start accumulating rapidly which leads to a loss of radiance. The skin starts going through a transition in which it experiences more dryness and irritation than before. Not only will the skin appear duller than before, but dark spots will start appearing too.

Some people may start seeing fine lines and dark spots from their early 30s, but otherwise, the skin will still remain volumized and elastic.

This means that a skin treatment is not too far-fetched of an idea to restore the glow and bounce in your skin.

Common skin problems in your 20s

  • Dull complexion

The skin’s repair system starts slowing down in the thirties. This means dead skin cells are not being replenished by fresh cells as quick as before. As such, your complexion will start looking uneven, dull, and may even crack.

  • Dry skin

dry skin in your 30sProduction of hydrating factors such as oil, sebum, and hyaluronic acid slows down and breakdown increases. When the skin has difficulties obtaining the natural moisture required, the skin will appear drier than before.

  • Fine lines and loss of volume

Life starts showing on the faces of people in their thirties. Proteins such as collagen and elastin breakdowns faster while production is slowed. A decreased collagen production will result in the skin appearing less tight, the sightings of more prominent laugh lines and some fine forehead wrinkles.

  • Skin irritation

As cell turnover is reduced, the ageing skin will have a harder time recovering from any inflammation. The skin will become thinner and finer and is less tolerant of factors such as cold weather, harsh cleansers, and heavy makeup.

  • Hyperpigmentation

hyperpigmentation in your 30sDark spots, also known as hyperpigmentation, on the skin are caused by years of unprotected exposure to the sun. This stimulates pigment-producing cells into forming dark spots while acne scars fade at a slower rate due to the decreased cell turnover rate.

Best aesthetic treatments in your 30s

Taking care of the skin while in your thirties does not have to be difficult. One can start off by incorporating exfoliators into their weekly routine to help with cell turnover and go for aesthetic facial treatments to maintain the skin’s radiance and health.
