Whether you are new to the thirties club or are a long-time cardholder, you know that this is the decade to really start focusing on your skin. When done right, your skincare routine can help prevent sun damage, wrinkles and dark spots in the long run. If you want to flaunt your youthful glow for a long time, follow these steps every single day!
Skincare Routine For Your Thirties
Start double cleansing
Makeup, sweat, sunscreen, pollutants... there are a ton of skin stressors that we are exposed to on a daily basis. To prevent these from building up and clogging your pores, you need to get into the habit of double cleansing at night. Start with an oil-based cleansing balm such as the Mon Cherry Dirt Dissolving Cleansing Balm. These type of balms penetrate deep into your pores to remove all kinds of residue and ensure that you don't get zits or blackheads.
Next, follow up with a foaming cleanser to complete the cleansing process. The Mon Cherry Brightening Foam Cleanser is the one to try here as it provides a deep cleanse, while gently exfoliating your skin to get rid of any dead skin cells.
Target your issues
Before you decide on which serum you should be using, you need to first sit down and examine your skin. In our thirties, we often notice fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation creeping up. To tackle these skin woes, choose a multi-tasking formula such as the Bravocado Intense Brightening Serum. Enriched with vitamin C, niacinamide and bakuchiol, this formula helps revive dull skin and deeply moisturizes it, while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles.
Amp up the hydration
As you grow older, your skin tends to get drier. To keep it hydrated and plump, use an essence twice a day on damp skin. The Mon Cherry Intense Brightening Essence, which is packed with the goodness of cherry blossom, pearl extracts and glycerin, works to deliver a supple and soft complexion.
Once you've used the essence, follow it up with a moisturizer. A lightweight formula such as the Mon Cherry Ultra Light Moisturizing Gel provides intense hydration, without feeling greasy.
Invest in an eye cream
Crow's feet, i.e. the fine lines around your eyes, have a tendency to deepen as you age. Look for a nourishing formula like the Mama Cica Dark Circle Fading Under Eye Cream to plump up your skin. Since it contains centella asiatica (cica) and orange peel oil, both of which are rich in vitamin C, it also helps lighten the appearance of dark circles. Plus, the roller ball applicator will keep your under-eye bags depuffed and smooth!
Take out time for a weekly mask
There's no better feeling than kicking back and relaxing with a good face mask. If your skin is dry or dehydrated, go for a sheet mask. The Mon Cherry Sheet Mask for Bright and Clear Skin drenches your face with moisture and leaves you with fresh, supple and radiant skin.
For those with combination or oily skin, a clay mask is what you require. The Bravocado Deep Cleansing Clay Mask provides your skin with a deep cleanse, sops up excess oil and clears out your pores. What more can you ask for?
Apart from these 5 steps, you need to be diligent about your sun protection. Use a generous amount of sunscreen all over your face and body before you step out and reapply every few hours to shield your skin from the harmful effects of the UV rays.
If you follow this regime regularly, there's no doubt that your skin will remain in top shape for the years to come!
