Our skin loses its natural elasticity as we age. There are plenty of skin care products out there claiming to delay the onset of early skin aging, and we’ve got the five skin care products that beauty experts use and swear by.

Full-Body Moisturizer

Slather on some moisturizing lotion on your body to keep your skin looking soft and smooth. Boost the moisturizing effect by applying the lotion right after drying your skin from a bath.

The lotion will help seal in your natural skin moisture and double up the effect of its moisturizing formula. This will keep your skin hydrated for a longer period of time.

Anti-Wrinkle Serum

Ward off the early onset of wrinkles with an anti-aging serum that works for your skin type. Look for one that contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring skin component that makes the skin look plump and firm.

As we age, the skin on our face becomes more prone to sagging and wrinkling, particularly around the eye area and the chin area. An anti-wrinkle serum with HA boosts the skin’s natural restorative properties, resulting in a smoother skin surface with fewer wrinkles and an evener skin tone.

Hand Creams

One other thing to have in your skincare arsenal is an ultra-moisturizing hand cream. The skin on our hands is more prone to drying and irritation. The skin on our hands is frequently exposed to strong soap formulations that we use for household cleaning and even regular hand washing.

To combat the drying effects of these strong soaps, we need to protect our hands with a moisturizing cream that helps repair and moisturize dry and damaged skin, as an overnight treatment.

Using the cream at bedtime is ideal as you won’t have to be washing your hands as often as you would during the day, allowing the skin to fully absorb the moisturizing benefits of the product.

Foot Creams

Yes, you read it right. Foot creams are a thing, and it does wonders to the skin on your feet. Keep your feet looking clean and fresh, from heel to toe, by getting rid of cracked and dry skin.

Having soft and beautiful skin on your feet doesn’t just make you feel extra confident wearing those pretty peep-toe shoes and toe-bearing slip-ons, it also increases the level of comfort that you feel, no matter what footwear you’re using.

Cracked, irritated skin can be bothersome, and though it may not be a major pain issue, it can still be distracting at times. Best to have a proper foot cream that is formulated with skin-soothing ingredients that helps repair and strengthen the skin.

Sunscreen

skin care essential

Last but not least, put on some sunscreen to protect your skin from the harsh effects of UV rays. It’s important to take this extra step to prevent exposed skin parts from darkening, which can give you an uneven skin tone. No matter what the time of day or what the season is, it is important to put on some sunscreen, whenever you’re stepping out during the day.

Finding the products that work for your skin type and your skin care requirements will involve a bit of trial and error, so it’s important to go for trial sizes and consider products that contain natural and mild ingredients if you have ultra-sensitive skin.

On the other hand, if you need more moisturizing to repair extremely dry skin, go for both day and night treatments that contain the right balance of powerful and natural ingredients to get your skin back in shape, and don’t be afraid to consult with a dermatologist.

Skin care in your 30s will require a little more work but will guarantee you a younger and healthier looking skin throughout this age decade and into your 40s.
