Start reading the labels
There are plenty of products in the market that you can invest in to maintain your skin’s health and looks. But, do remember to read the label on the jars before purchasing. Dermatologists and skin care estheticians often talk about ingredients that you must look for in your beauty products.
The market is filled with many anti-ageing products that promise instant tightening and rejuvenation of the facial skin. However, know must know the product better before purchasing. For example, go for wrinkle creams that have Cynergy TK, which is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient to look for, to maintain youthful skin.
Revamp your beauty routine now
It is more important than ever to maintain the cleansing, toning and moisturising routine for your skin at this point of life.
- According to an ace dermatologist, Dr Jeannette Graf, a pH balanced cleanser is a must-have in your beauty kit. It helps to maintain the delicate moisture barrier of your skin.
- Dr Graf also adds that the best time to exfoliate is at night, after your skin has been exposed to the harsh elements and the skin can rejuvenate overnight. Exfoliation should always be gentle, and should be followed by a moisturiser.
- Also, do not allow makeup to stay on your face before you go to bed, not only does it block the pores, but may react negatively with your skin too.
Bath and beyond
Did you know that harsh chemicals in soap, wash away the moisture from your skin? So, invest in a moisturising body wash instead. Take lukewarm showers of five minutes or less to prevent pruning of skin. After-bath moisturising creams are great for locking in moisture and must be applied daily.
Dr David Bank, also suggests that you should look for moisturisers that have active vitamin A (retinol) and vitamin C in them. Also, using a rich body cream at least twice daily can keep your skin smooth and moisturised.
It is best to trust natural ingredients and homemade remedies for your skin, irrespective of whatever your age is. Use ingredients like milk, cream, honey, etc. for your skin care on a regular basis.
There is no reason why your hair must suffer with age. Applying hair masks once a week, oiling every other day, and using the correct products will result in healthy lustrous hair.
Food and health regime
The thirties are a time when you have to consider before putting anything on your plate. Healthy food will go a long way in ensuring that your skin and hair look fantastic, as well as keep you fit. Stay away from oily and spicy foods, and stick to fruits and green leafy vegetables.
