What is the Best Skincare Routine in the 30s?
About to close the doors on your 20s? Don’t worry, I know this can be stressful, but your 30s are all about embracing the changes in your body. Not only your party skills will decrease, but you might also notice fine lines or sunken eyes. Yikes! But wait, let me tell you something – Age is just a number. You wouldn’t want to stay a kid forever, right? Similarly, reaching 30s isn’t as bad as it seems.
You will have to work a little more when it comes to skincare and health. Therefore, I have come up with a skincare routine for 30s for all those women touching this milestone! Let’s get rolling!
How Does Aging Affect the Skin?
Change is scary, I know, especially when you least expect it. You may start to notice that your skin is getting dull. There is a reason why – your skin’s cell turnover slows down in your 30s. In your 20s new skin cells expose after every 14 days, which turns to 28-35 days as soon as you cross the thirties. In simple words, your skin takes a little bit longer to renew dead tissues, which can leave your skin looking dull.
When exposed to pollution and other factors, you may notice the signs of pre-mature aging. Here is a quick guide on how to save your skin from pre-mature aging.
Just because your skin cells take longer to regenerate, you may notice it getting drier than usual. There could be another reason for it, the slow down of a natural hydrating factor in the skin.
Your skin might appear less plump. It is because the level of hormones in the body drops when you are in your 30s. The proteins, such as collagen and elastin, are also slower to reproduce. This is what causes wrinkles, under-eye bags, the appearance of laugh lines, and crow’s feet.

Essential Products that Should Always be Stacked on your Dresser
Before heading to a routine, there are a few products that are a complete necessity. At a minimum, the below-mentioned products should be in your skincare toolkit.
As you enter your 30s, the skin becomes more sensitive. Therefore, I recommend you use a mild cleanser since medicated cleansers cause more damage than treating your skin. Being gentle with your skin really pays off in the end.
Apart from this, you should always keep Mello’s Rose Quartz Face Roller in your must-have list, when your skin needs that extra love and care.
A must-have, antioxidant serums work like magic, especially when you are looking for a skincare routine for 30s. These are packed with ingredients like Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and algae and work to fight wrinkles. In addition to this, antioxidants also protect your skin from pollution.
Proper exfoliation is one of the most vital parts of skincare in 30s. These work by cleaning up the dead skin cells and speed up your skin’s cell regeneration cycle. For a revitalized glow exfoliation also stimulates the production of elastin and collagen.
Well, you know how aging can leave your skin looking dull and loose. Try your hands on Mello’s Skin Tightening and Acne Spot Remover, today!
If there’s a chance to add sunscreen into a diet plan, I would never say never. Not kidding! I always recommend people to wear sunscreen every time they go out. Fight the appearance of dark spots with a protective layer of sunscreen even when you aren’t expecting sunny weather.
Hydration is the key to a glowy skin. Therefore, it is essential to keep a tiny tube of moisturizer in your bag on the go! For the best anti-aging action, look for a moisturizer with hydroxy acid, retinol, vitamin C, and tea extracts. Trust me; moisturizer is super essential in skincare for 30s.
Also, if you are worried about your stretch marks, I will be giving you a few tips to get rid of them in the next blog.
Best Skincare Routine for the 30s
Now that you know the essential products for when you turn 30 and above, here is a full-fledged guide on the best skincare routine. With these simple yet effective steps, reduce the effects of aging, and rebalance your skin.
#1. Wash Your Face
With a gentle cleanser, wash your face twice every day using circular motions. Rinse off and then pat dry with a clean cotton towel.
#2. Exfoliate Your Skin
Take a small dose of an exfoliant and apply it to your face gently in the same way you use the facewash. Do not rub the exfoliant too hard around your eyes as it may cause irritation. Take around 30 seconds to 2 minutes before rinsing off with water. Pat dry with a clean towel.
Right after you exfoliate your skin, apply a thin layer of anti-aging serum to every inch of your face. Remember, a little goes a long way.

#4. Wear your Favorite Moisturizer
For the serum to seep into your skin, apply your favorite moisturizer that will leave your skin all nourished and clean.
When you are going out, make sure you wear a layer of sunscreen. It would be best if you also looked for different make-up products that have SPF in them.
At night, before going to bed, repeat the first, second, and the fourth step.
Winding up, I’d say healthy life choices, along with this routine, is vital for clear skin during your 30s. A little exercise, plenty of sleep, and hydration is enough to show that inner glow that you always need.
