Realising how your body can no longer stay up till 3 am for a party or night out, hustling hard in your adulthood and finding yourself attending multiple baby showers in a year? Welcome to life in your 30s. 

With that, there’s a snappy saying that ‘age is just a number’. At the current moment, we may (and should) feel young at heart. However, we can never shy away from the bearings that the 30s brings to our health and skin. As we age, it is often unavoidable that our hormonal changes affect how we look, and the telltale signs on our complexion tend to reveal our age.

Hormones are one of the most significant contributors to the signs of skin ageing, especially in women. Generally, at the age of 18, the average growth hormones level ranges around 900. However, when we hit the big 30s, our growth hormones drop to an average level of 200. Hence, this means that our collagen production starts to drop, further giving way to dull and droopy skin. Our body’s metabolism starts to slow down, affecting our cell turnover and our skin may not repair itself as fast as in our 20s or teenage years. 

Stepping into the prime age of 30, we need to acquire new ways to slow down the effects of ageing on our skin. Ever wonder the top skincare tips which can help you regain your youthful glow? Notepads at the ready, and let’s take a deep dive into the Best Skin Care Tips For Women In Their 30s.

Vitamin A

Without a doubt, the number one telltale sign which reflects skin ageing will be wrinkles and fine lines. These fine lines may further evolve into full-blown crow’s feet (also known as laugh lines or character lines) when left untreated.

As we get older, the Vitamin A in our skin starts to gradually deplete, causing the emergence of wrinkles and fine lines. In short, Vitamin A is a form of antioxidant that is good for healthy vision, skin, bones and other tissues in the body. With Vitamin A doing its job as an antioxidant, it fights off free radicals and age-related cell damage. Further, it helps to signal your cells to grow at a faster rate, bringing fresher, more youthful skin to the surface more rapidly.

Many have often said that nutrients from food are the most important. Herewith, the good sources for Vitamin A are fortified milk, eggs, meat, cheese, liver, halibut fish oil, cream and kidneys. However, if you’re vegetarian or vegan, you can look out for these brightly coloured foods to replenish your Vitamin A.

  • Cantaloupe
  • Pink grapefruit
  • Apricots
  • Carrots
  • Pumpkin

Shens Therapeutics Recommendation: 

However, if you’re looking for a quick fix for the lack of Vitamin A in your skin, you can check out the VitaNutrient Skin Booster treatment at Shens Therapeutics.

The VitaNutrient Skin Booster formulation contains non-cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally found substance in our body. Hyaluronic acid significantly improves the radiance, elasticity and tonicity of the skin. It fills fine lines and wrinkles and improves the overall appearance of the skin. The level of hyaluronic acid is far reduced through ageing, resulting in skin dryness and loss of elasticity. With the introduction and regular maintenance of hyaluronic acid levels in your skin, your skin will be instantly hydrated.

To boost skin’s renewal even further, the VitaNutrient Skin Booster formulation contains a powerful rejuvenating complex of 50+ vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids to target specific skin problems.

This treatment delivers microdroplets of Vita-Nutrient formulation precisely and evenly into your skin using advanced micro channelling technology. First, a topical numbing cream is applied to minimise your discomfort. Next, through a series of micro-channels created over your skin, the Skin Booster formulation micro-droplets are delivered evenly just beneath your skin for maximum absorption.

Recommended Sessions: An intensive treatment of 4 sessions (one session every month), and followed by maintenance (one session every 3 months).

Many clinical studies have indicated that most skin changes associated with ageing are avoidable. And, most of them are due to one cause: sun damage.

Summarily, the ultraviolet rays can damage the elastic fibers that keep skin firm, allowing wrinkles to develop. Sunlight is also responsible for age spots or “liver spots” on the hands, face, and other sun-exposed areas.

Therefore, it is important to apply sunscreen, no matter the weather. The sunscreen shields you from harmful UV rays and protects your skin from photo-ageing. Thus, look out for sunscreen products that have at least SPF 30 and a PA+ rating. The SPF protects you from UVB rays, while the level of PA ratings (higher ratings means more protection) protects you from UVA rays.

Your skincare routine should not be limited to your face. The overall health of your body affects your skin as well. Thus, it needs your attention, as well! 

The fact is that skin is an organ, and just like any other part of the body. Your skin is made up of cells. And skin cells, like any other cell in the body, are made up of water. Without water, the organs will certainly not function properly or at their best. It is incredibly important to keep yourself hydrated as it helps with the detoxification of waste from your body, keeping your skin radiant and healthy!

With the above information, we hope that these essential tips can help you radiate your glow in your 30s!
