How to care for the skin after 30-35 years? At this age when choosing cosmetics and salon procedures, it is important to consider not only your age and skin type but also your type of aging. It is this approach that will most effectively smooth out age-related changes, slow down the aging process and avoid unnecessary procedures.

After thirty years, the renewal processes in our body slow down, at this age the skin is considered to be no longer young, but mature, therefore it is recommended to connect regular anti-aging care during this period.

However, for the age group of 30 to 40, it is difficult to give universal advice, because the skin condition at this age can be very different. While ladies with dry skin notice a feeling of dryness, tightness of the skin and complain of the appearance of wrinkles, the owners of oily skin often still worried about the fatty shine in the T-zone and the slightly floated oval of the face.

But I will give a few recommendations, which, I hope, will help you choose the right strategy for home and salon care.

Age changes of 30-40 years:

When women aged 30-35 years notice age-related changes, they often panic - they think that they are beginning to grow old and urgently to take the most radical measures.

This is not true. Yes, indeed, at this age, the processes of skin renewal are slowing down, the synthesis of epidermal lipids is reduced, and microcirculation is broken, so the skin becomes drier, there are signs of photoaging, but it's still too early to talk about skin aging in 30-40 years.

The skin is a hormone-dependent organ, and up to 35-40 years, hormones are usually produced in sufficient quantities and during this period the skin responds perfectly to any cosmetic procedures. Therefore, with the right home and salon care at the age of 30 to 40, the skin looks very good.

How to care for your skin after 30:

In addition to basic and additional care products - cleansers, tonics, peelings, moisturizing creams and masks, you can regularly include in your care serums and creams with anti-aging components:

1.       Peptides

2.       AHA acids

3.       Vitamin C

4.       Retinol

And also means with components that strengthen the vascular wall and improve microcirculation:

1.       Arnica extract.

2.       Ginkgo biloba.

3.       Horse Chestnut.

4.       Seaweed.

Age, skin type and type of aging:

After 30, when choosing the means of anti-aging care, it is important to consider not only the age and skin type but also your type of aging. This will help you navigate in the variety of cosmetics and salon procedures and choose the most effective ones for you.

For example, if you are prone to a fine-wrinkled type of aging, then in your home care there must necessarily be nutritious creams and masks that will help smooth out wrinkles and eliminate the feeling of dryness and tightness of the skin.

And if you have a deformation type of aging, a good effect will be given by serums, creams, and masks that strengthen the vascular wall improve microcirculation and thus provide a lifting effect.



Home care for mature skin:

Women between the ages of 30 and 40 very often ask me the question: how can I combine all the necessary means in my home care if there are several problems at once, for example, a lady 35 and I need regular anti-aging care, but at the same time still disturbs fatty shine in the T-zone or periodic rashes and blockage of pores?

It's very simple - give preference to those tools that solve several of your problems at once. For example, a cream with vitamin A not only has a beneficial effect on the work of sebaceous glands but also has a powerful anti-aging effect.

If you have dry and dehydrated skin, prone to a fine wrinkled type of aging, then a nourishing cream with peptides will help not only to smooth wrinkles but also to eliminate dryness, tightness, and peeling of the skin.

And if the situation is more complicated, and in addition to age-related changes and clogging of pores, there is still an increased sensitivity of the skin and an inclination to couperose, I would advise paying attention to professional cosmetics.

Because among the professional cosmetics you can find products that promote skin rejuvenation and purification of pores, for example, products with ANA acids, but they are adapted for sensitive skin, include an anti-bovine complex and will not irritate even the most sensitive skin with couperose.


Salon care:

After 30 years, it is advisable to include in your care and salon anti-aging procedures. In my opinion, the most common mistake is that women often start immediately with heavy artillery - injections or serious hardware techniques.

But these are not the procedures from which you need to start your salon care. These are the procedures by which you need to complete the course of anti-aging activities, and then only if the result achieved does not satisfy you.

And you need to start with procedures that have a complex effect not only on the skin but also on the muscles of the face and neck, on the blood and lymph vessels. First of all, it is necessary to improve blood circulation, metabolic processes, and trophic tissue.

To do this, you can use:

·         Manual or hardware message.

·         Microcurrent therapy.

·         Various masks and serums, both for salon and for home use.

Then you can connect to your care and some aggressive procedures, for example, surface chemical peels.

And laser resurfacing, injections and other serious interventions should be like the final chord, as the final touch of your anti-aging course. It is with this approach that you will most likely need much less of such interventions (or they will not be needed at all), and well-groomed and prepared skin will be much easier to cope with such stress.
