The Best Skin Care Routine for Your 30s The Best Skin Care Routine for Your 30s The Best Skin Care Routine for Your 30s

Turning 30 is a major life milestone—and it can come with a lot of changes. In addition to no longer being able to party quite as hard as you did in your 20s, you may notice that your skin has changing needs in this decade. In your 30s, it’s possible for your skin to start feeling drier—and you may even begin to see the signs of aging, like dark spots and wrinkles. That’s why putting together a skin care routine that can help address your new skin care concerns is key. Here, learn all about the best skin care routine for your 30s.

Skin Care Tip #1: Cleanse Twice a Day

One thing that shouldn’t change as you enter a new decade? How often you cleanse. Washing your face is something you should do morning and night, no matter your age. That being said, you may want to consider switching up what cleanser you use. Try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Scrub Cleanser, which is formulated with gentle micro-pearls and glycolic acid. It exfoliates dullness and impurities from the surface of skin to improve skin’s tone. Immediately, skin looks more radiant. Every morning and evening, lather the cleanser into wet hands and gently massage it onto your skin a circular motion, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Just keep in mind that alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as glycolic acid can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so make sure to take proper sun protection measures including applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher as directed, limiting your amount of time in the sun (especially during peak hours, which are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), seeking shade, and covering up any exposed areas.

Skin Care Tip #2: Take Sun Protection Seriously

As a busy thirtysomething, chances are you may not have quite as much time to spend on your skin care routine as you’d like. But that doesn’t give you a free pass to skip out on sun protection in your 30s. Use a moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Lotion SPF 30, as this combines two steps (moisturizing + sunscreen application) into one. This moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen is hydrating and helps skin look brighter. Apply it as directed and make sure you’re also taking the other sun protection measures we mentioned earlier.

Skin Care Tip #3: Add a Peel Pad to Your Nightly Schedule

Before going to bed, take a second to wipe your face with a peel pad. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads physically resurface dead skin cells to reveal the appearance of brighter-looking skin. Use nightly on clean skin. Gently apply a pad in a circular motion on your face, then follow up with moisturizer. As with the cleanser we told you about earlier, these peel pads are formulated with glycolic acid (an AHA), which can increase your skin’s sun sensitivity. So, be sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen and take additional sun protection measures in the morning.

Skin Care Tip #4: Try a Dual-Action Overnight Moisturizer

Another skin care step you can take pre-slumber is applying the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer. This dual-action nighttime moisturizer has an exfoliating concentrate in one chamber and a brightening infusion in the other. The next morning, you’ll notice skin that looks fresher and more radiant, while skin feels more hydrated. With continued use over time, the appearance of wrinkles is diminished as are the appearance of dark spots. Every night, smooth the moisturizer gently over cleansed skin—and remember to take all your sun protection measures when you wake up, as this moisturizer is also formulated with an AHA, which can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.
