Many men and women notice the first signs of aging in their late 20s or early 30s. Your old skincare habits don’t fit the needs of your skin any more. A little extra TLC can refresh and rejuvenate your skin so it looks great throughout your 30s and for decades to come. Beautiful skin doesn’t take a lot of time to achieve, but requires a daily commitment to skincare.
Don’t Skimp on Sun Protection
If you’re only going to do one thing for your skin in your 30s, choose to focus on sun protection. UV rays are a primary cause of skin aging. Aging is inevitable, but with good sun habits, you can dramatically slow things down. These tips will help you protect your skin from the sun:
- Use Sunscreen Daily- We recommend using a broad-spectrum SPF 30+ every single day, even if you aren’t planning outdoor activities. If you’re planning a day in the sun, reapply your sunscreen often.
- Use Enough Sunscreen– Most people don’t apply enough sunscreen. Use a nickel-sized dollop for your face alone, a shot glass full for the whole body.
- Avoid Peak Sun Hours- The sun is strongest from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Limit your sun exposure during these hours if you can.
- Use Self-Tanner If You Want a Tan- Get that golden glow without harmful UV radiation.
