BEST Anti Aging Skin Care for 30’s
Are you in your late twenties all the way into your thirties? Have you ever wondered what specific anti-aging product that you should be focusing on? Are you considering using Retin-A, or Botox, or some more aggressive anti-aging products? Today we’re going to be talking about the BEST anti-aging skincare in your thirties that you should be focusing on.
So this is what happens in your thirties to your skin, and you might start to see some visible signs of this. So the first one is, your skin cell, skin cell turnover rate starts to slow down. So you may start to see maybe some uneven skin tone, maybe some dullness, your skin’s volume, you start to lose that plushness and bounce-ness, the Collagen and Elastin fibers start to kind of loosen, and the Elastin coils start to also become tight.
So therefore you start to see fine lines and wrinkles because your skin can’t move as freely with the expressions that you have on your face. So the damage that’s been caused by UV rays and pollution may not have started appearing yet.
BUT, for those of you who kind of abused your skin in your twenties, and even when you were younger by not wearing sunscreen or by not using any skincare products, this may start to show up as early as your mid twenties.
So if you’re already starting to see fine lines and wrinkles, that means that damage accumulation started MUCH earlier. So it is very important now to start paying attention to the skincare products that you are using on your face.
So although more and more young women in their twenties are already starting to come in and get some facial treatments, it’s really in your thirties that where you really start to see the Sun damage. Unless you have taken care of your skin and you’re in your forties, and then you start to see them.
And we’re actually going to be doing a video for anti-aging skincare, BEST skincare tips for you in your forties and your fifties. Hi, my name is Christy Greene and I’m the owner of Go See Christy Beauty Boutique, and I have been treating clients with Acne, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines for over ten years.
So thank you for coming in and watching our video. So many young women want to know what is the BEST anti-aging product. But this is the age where you should really be focusing on exfoliating because if your skin cannot absorb these serums and these creams, these moisturizers in your skin, then you’re wasting your money.
So we want to focus first on exfoliating your skin ’cause this is the stage where your skin cell turnover rate starts to slow down. So for those of you who are not sure which type of exfoliants that you should be using, I do have a video — I’m going to put the link above here — which is, “Exfoliation: The Three Different Types and the Best Types for Your Skin”.
Don’t forget to watch the video for the PRO TIP! Okay, so the second condition that you have to address is the Collagen and Elastin fibers as they start to loosen and tighten. So the first one I’m going to talk to you about is for those of you who have fair skin, thinner skin, you may start to see some earlier signs of fine lines and wrinkles versus people who have thicker skin and darker skin.
So, also if you have fairer skin and you’ve had a lot of Sun damage you’re going to start to see more age spots and uneven skin tone. So, going back to people who have darker skin and olive skin tones, they typically, not always, but they typically have thicker skin.
So, their first concern is not typically going to be fine lines and wrinkles, unless they got a lot of Sun when they were earlier. Theirs is going to be hyperpigmentation. They tend to produce more oil, so their skin doesn’t show a lot of fine lines and wrinkles, and their Melanin, actually, they get more Melanin, it’s closer to the skin’s surface, so they actually get more “natural” protection, at some level, from the Sun.
So for those of you who have fair or sensitive skin, the types of exfoliants that you need to look for or focus on, if your skin can tolerate it, is more the enzymatic-based exfoliants. So for example, Bromelain, which is an enzyme from papaya.
.. Or… I did it again. Not papaya! Bromelain is one, and that is from pineapple, Papain is from papaya, enzymes from cherries, those are more gentle than your Glycolic Acid-based exfoliants. Or, if you can, you can even use a Lactic Acid.
That is one of the more gentle acids out of all the family of acids. You can also do pumpkin! Another one that’s mostly based for people who have Acne is Salicylic Acid. Some of you may even use that one.
Now what’s different about this one is this is a Beta Hydroxy Acid, so, again, you have to test it out. Some sensitive types actually tolerate the Beta Hydroxy Acid better than the fruit acids. So the only way to know, though, is to try it and test it.
But for most sens-, TRUE sensitive skin types, Glycolic Acid is not tolerated as well. So the reason why I recommend these fruit acids when you’re young is because this not only, obviously, helps exfoliate the skin, it also BOOSTS your absorption of the natural anti-oxidants that are in the fruit acids as well as the Polyphenols.
So, before we get in to whether you need an expensive anti-aging product or cream, we would love it if you hit the SUBSCRIBE button, if you’re not already following us, and HIT that notification bell to get notified when we have our new videos every week.
And as well, please give us a THUMBS UP! This helps support our channe-, channel and to let us know that these are the kind of information that you are looking for. Okay, so on to the next part! So look for Vitamins A, C, and E in the serums.
Now the best type is to look for these kind of serums that have high concentrations of these, but again, if you have sensitive skin, you may not be able to tolerate especially Vitamin A or C. You’re going to be able to tolerate the Vitamin E a lot more.
Now, if you can’t afford these expensive serums, then look into some oils. The oils naturally have occurring anti-oxidants, again they’re, they’re not as isolated, but you still can get them. I’ll put a link up here for “The BEST Facial Oils” because one of them highly recommend is the Sea Buckthorn Berry oil.
It not only has the anti-oxidants but it has the actually COMPLETE Omega family of the fatty acids that you need to help supplement the Ceramides, the fatty acids, and cholesterol that actually hold your keratinsi-, keratinocytes together.
And the other one that you might want to consider is the Grape Seed oil as well. That one doesn’t have the complete Omega family fatty acids in there, but that one still is good for anti-oxidant benefits.
Now at this stage in the game, you don’t really need to focus on the hundred-dollar anti-aging creams. To get the most bang for your buck, you want to focus on the SERUMS. You always want to focus on serums across the board because they are actually the most concentrated usually in the bio-active ingredients, but if your budget is limited, then always focus on the serums first and not so much on the creams.
The creams is going to be in the next generation. Unless, of course, you are using Retin-A, or you-, you’re using something that is really speeding up your skin cell turnover rate, and your skin starts to lose its ability to hold its own moisture in, then you need a good cream.
However, not so much the anti-aging cream, focus more on the anti-aging serum, but your cream is to hydrate and keep that moisture in. Here comes the PRO TIP! Okay, so the PRO TIP is: To increase the hydrating capability of your cream is to get a very good toner, because what that is going to do, is that’s actually going to INCREASE the efficacy — if you get the right toner! — increase the efficacy of the bio-active ingredients, in this case anti-oxidants and even hydrating properties, in your serum.
So I’ll put a link in the description below of this toner. I just LOVE this toner of what it has. One of the main ingredients for humectants, it’s very high in the ingredients list, is of course Glycerin, Sodium PCA, Sodium Hyaluronate, but it also has this plant-derived humectant that really helps the skin be able to hold on to and increase it’s hydration levels, as well as Peptides.
And Peptides is the new technology for anti-aging ingredients. And what is unique about this toner is it actually makes the skin smooth and supple by increasing its own barrier function. So what are these Peptides? So the first one is Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and the other one is Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide.
So what these combination of these Peptides do is, again, when in your thirties you start to see the fine lines and wrinkles. And part of it is, again, because your skin is not pliable, it’s not plush.
So what this does is it INCREASES hydration levels of your skin so that your skin can basically metabolize… hmmm… what’s an easy way to say it?… So, to be able to metabolize and make its own fatty acids and cholesterol to be able to SEAL IN that moisture level.
So as far as eye creams and eye gels go, they’re typically, in addition to the serums, the most expensive per its size. And that is because serums and eye creams and eye gels typically have the most concentration of bio-active ingredients.
So at this point, if you do not have the under-eye bags, the saggy eyelids, the dark under-eye circle, then you can get a-, one that just simply hydrates your skin. You don’t have to get one that’s TOO expensive, but if you want more prevention and you want ones in Peptides, then you are going to have to spend a little more.
If you have these specific eye-, under-eye circles, bags, saggy eyelids, puffy eyelids, then we di-, we do have a video — I’ll put the link up here — on those on the very specific eye creams can treat that.
But if you don’t have this at this stage, that is not what you want to concentrate on. Okay, so if you typically have oily skin, then stick to the eye gels or water-based eye gels, and if you have drier skin, or normal-to-dry skin, then you can use a cream.
Now, for those eye creams that have Retinol or you’re using Retin-A under the eyes, please be very careful. Around the eye area, this is called the Periocular area, this can be sensitive, your skin tends to be thinner.
If you’re going to use a Retin-A or Retinol-based cream, I wouldn’t really recommend and eye cream, just use an overall face cream for that. Because it can increase irritation and inflammation, and then when you that and you do it consistently, you can actually see an increase of fine lines and crepiness around the skin.
So finally, for those of you who are in your late twenties and thirties, the one good thing that you need to spend good money on — and you wouldn’t think so — is the sunscreen. Because right now you are still in that prevention stage where most of you are not seeing the signs of aging.
Unless you’re seeing the premature fine lines and wrinkles. So, INVEST in a GOOD sunscreen. So, here are some things to look for. Again, this is one that I REALLY like because I’ve evaluated the ingredients in here because it’s an all-in-one.
It is a sunscreen that has plant-based anti-oxidants AND Peptides, as well as plant-based lighteners-and-brighteners to even out your skin tone, and hydration, and a mineral-based sunscreen. It doesn’t have the chemical one, which tends to make people’s skin itchy, inflamed, and some of-, some people even have rashes on there.
And I’ll put the product link in the description below. If you can find an all-in-one that is a sunscreen, that’s a moisturizer, and has anti-aging benefits, prevention benefits, lightening benefits, that is your best bet.
At this point in your life stage, I would really avoid the drugstore brand sunscreens, and make sure it’s at least a 30 SPF or higher. And remember: Make-up is an art, and skincare is a SCIENCE. We’ll see you next week!
