Top 9 Beauty Tips For Women Over 30


30 is not just a number. It’s an attitude.

Turning 30 marks the beginning of your prime. Life seems like a mess when you are in your 20s. But in your 30s, you tend to feel more in control. However, the case with your skin and hair could be different.

Your body metabolism starts to slow down a little in your 30s. It may not be able to repair itself as fast. This is one reason you must take your appearance (and health, in general) more seriously during this time.


Self care during this period is not a big deal. You have to be a little more cautious with what you do to yourself (your skin and hair) and how you do it. Here are 30 essential beauty tips that can help you up your beauty game in your 30s.


Skin Care Tips For Women Over 30

1. Keep Yourself Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water not only promotes overall health but also makes your skin healthy. Keeping yourself replenished is a way to avoid dry, dull, and flaky skin.

2. Follow A CTM Routine Religiously

CTM means Cleansing-Toning-Moisturizing. Before you retire for the day, ensure you cleanse your face thoroughly. Toning helps prep your skin for the next series of steps in the skincare routine. Moisturizing ensure your skin receives all the essential ingredients to repair itself and stay hydrated.


3. Exfoliate Periodically

Your skin sheds its entire outer layer every 2-4 weeks. Every day, it keeps shedding the dead cells that accumulate on the surface. If not cleaned out, the dead skin cells can make your skin appear dull, dark, patchy, and dry. Hence, exfoliating once a week is crucial.

You may use scrubs and facial brushes for exfoliation. You may also use products containing AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) for this purpose. However, make sure you do not scrub your skin more than twice a week. Over-exfoliation can damage new cells and cause skin irritation.


4. Use Sunscreen Regularly

No matter the weather, ensure you use sunscreen. It shields you from the harmful UV rays and protects your skin from photo-aging. Make sure you are using a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and a PA+ rating. While SPF protects you from the UVB rays, the PA rating means protection from the UVA rays. Look for products with a PA +++ rating; the higher the rating, the more the protection.

5. Look For Key Ingredients In Your Skin Care Products

In your 30s, your skin demands special ingredients. It is time your skin starts to show subtle signs of aging. You would need targeted skin care products with specific ingredients that work to solve specific problems. When buying toners, creams, serums, and other skin care products, look for ingredients like AHAs (such as glycolic and lactic acids), antioxidants such as vitamin C, and resveratrol. Other important ingredients include niacinamide, retinol, and ceramides. These ingredients take care of your skin, promote exfoliation, improve cell turnover, and keep your skin looking youthful.


6. Take The Right Supplements

Post 30, your body enters the maintenance phase, and you need to support it with adequate, right nutrition. The same goes for your skin. You may take vitamin and collagen supplements to boost your skin health and improve its elasticity. Consult your health care provider/nutritionist to take the right supplements you need.

7. Go For Regular Facials And Use Face Masks

Facials boost radiance and keep your skin healthy. They help improve blood circulation to your skin. When combined with anti-aging products, they may also delay signs of aging.

You may visit salons or try doing facials at home. You may also try face masks to provide the additional nourishment your skin needs. You may use DIY ingredients or buy sheet masks.


8. Use An Under Eye Cream

The 30s can also present other skin issues like puffy eyes, dark circles, and dryness around the eyes. To fight these, you need a specialized under-eye cream. Since the skin under your eyes is more delicate and thinner than the rest of your face, and under-eye cream can help.

9. Take Care Of Your Body

Your skincare routine should not be limited to your face. The skin on the rest of your body needs attention as well. As you use your face cream or serum, you may apply the same to your neck.

Use hydrating hand cream. The skin on the back of the palms is thinner and can age faster. Exfoliate the skin on your body once a week with a body scrub or loofah. Use a moisturizing body lotion every day and try to apply it to damp skin (as this ensures maximum absorption).
