Skincare in early 20s vs Skincare in early 30s

Our skin constantly undergoes through changes as we age. Skin concerns vary between different age groups as skin’s structure varies over the years. Your 20s glowing and radiant skin gives way to your 30s post puberty skin which can show signs of thinning, wrinkles and discoloration. However, maintaining a consistent skincare routine is necessary in your 20s as well as in your 30s. The only constant companion in both of these age groups is SPF. SPF is essential in preventing skin from sun damage, faster loss of collagen and ageing. SPF provides anti-oxidants which keeps the skin’s epidermis protected from UVA, UVB rays.

How should your skincare be in early 20s?

Your skin is naturally producing collagen, has elasticity and skin cells turnover in the early 20s. It is healthy, glowing and plump. However, it is very important to take preventative measures for your skin so that it can effectively fight against skin concerns which are awaiting in your 30s.

Some of the active ingredients to introduce into the skincare routine in your 20s –

Hyaluronic acid – This ingredient retains moisture into the skin and keeps it hydrated and glowing. Hydration of the body is important internally as well as externally

Salicylic acid – Assists in reducing acne

Vitamin C – This helps reduce acne, hyperpigmentation, acne scars

Vitamin E – This prevents signs of ageing and compliments your SPF

These ingredients can be incorporated in the form of serums, moisturizers or cleansers. Serums prove to be very effective since they have a higher concentration of these ingredients. You can try out Beaumark Beauty’s Vitamin C Skin Repair Serum which is gentle and effective for glowing skin

Keep cleansing twice a day, exfoliating once or twice a week, moisturizing daily and put SPF daily irrespective of the weather

How should your skincare be in early 30s?

Your skin starts loosing 1% collagen every year in your late 20s and early 30s. Signs of premature aging, wrinkles, crow’s feet, discoloration, dryness starts showing up in the late 20s or early 30s. This is because skin’s damage in your teens or early 20s due to environmental factors starts showing up during your 30s. That is why it is necessary to take good preventative care of the skin in your 20s.

Some of the active ingredients to introduce into the skincare routine in your 30s –

Hyaluronic acid – Continue using this as your skin will keep requiring constant hydration, especially when it will be going through transformations

Retinol – Introduce this active ingredient into your skincare routine starting with 2-3 times a week. Retinol helps in reducing signs of aging by fading the appearance of acne, dark spots, brightening dull skin and decreasing production of oil

Peptides- This helps in reducing inflammation, increasing elasticity of the skin, reducing wrinkles and breakouts

Incorporate these active ingredients via day creams, night creams, and serums. Don’t forget to top it all with your SPF!

Maintaining your skin in the 30s will regulate your skin’s health and will help you understand and tackle your future skin concerns with ease.
