In your teens and 20s, cosmeceuticals are mostly about which products smell good and cost the least amount of money. As you get into your 30s, however, it is time to start taking your skin care a little bit more seriously. You may not have any wrinkles yet but, if you don’t start to care for your skin properly, they won’t be far behind. These are the key cosmeceuticals that every 30-something should have in their medicine cabinet.
Cosmeceuticals with Sunscreen
Sunscreen is a skin care essential for absolutely everyone, no matter how old or how young. In your 30s, however, you need to be even more diligent about using a product with built-in sunscreen every single day to protect your skin. Choose one that is formulated with zinc for maximum protection. Cosmeceuticals with zinc protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays, protecting you from direct sunlight and from the rays that make their way to your skin through, for example, the window of your car.
Ramp Up the Antioxidants
You know that antioxidants are important for your internal health. That’s why they are touted as a key ingredient in so many juices, teas, and even snacks. As you move into your 30s, you need to include them in your skin care as well. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which will lead to premature wrinkles. Choose a serum that is dense with antioxidants and use it daily to avoid wrinkles and lines in your skin.
A Specially Formulated Cleanser
In your 20s, you may have chosen whichever face wash was on sale when you went to the store or, even worse, washed your face with bar soap. Now that you’re taking your skin care more seriously, you need to choose a cleanser that is formulated for your skin type. For example, someone with naturally dry skin does not want to choose a cleanser with alcohol on the ingredient list. If you don’t have a dermatologist yet, see one for a checkup and find out exactly what kind of skin you are dealing with. They will be able to recommend the best type of cleanser for your skin.
When you are in your 30s, you may not be thinking about aging yet, but your habits are already setting the stage for the way your skin will develop. Getting into a good routine with high-quality skin care products, such as those at Genova Skincare, is essential. For more information about our skin care line or to get an order started, click here.
