5 Expert Skin Care Tips for People in Their 30’s
The 30s are splendid. You have a great career, a good set of friends, and more stability in life than before. More importantly, you are done with student life and feel all grown up! But you certainly did not see some of these skin and hair changes coming.
You are also starting to worry when you look in the mirror. Maybe, you spot a hint of the fine line or extra pigment. Yes, it is time to visit your doctor for hair and skin care.
As you progress in your 30s, some of the signs of photo-aging start to show up, and as you cross your 35th year, you will notice more pigmentation and dull skin issues. However, if you have been systematically following a good skincare routine in your younger years, the impact might be less. Dr. Rashmi Shetty says, “Anti-ageing treatment does not mean that you address it after you see the first wrinkle. Take the preventive care approach. If you take care now, then your skin will thank you much later. Aging for me does not mean the number of candles on your cake, but how your skin looks and feels”.
So, before pigmentation and fine lines become a challenge, try this regime. One critical step is to get the right exfoliating face wash that suits your skin type. This keeps your skin stay soft and supple.

Hair Care for the 30s
The 30s is when you have to commence taking care of your hair. As your body goes through some changes due to varied reasons like pregnancy or changing hormonal levels, your hair starts to show signs of aging. You might find it getting frizzy. Hair gets dry while the scalp can get oily. Hair fall starts to become an issue.
- Keep up with your oil massage and shampoo regime. You can do it every alternate day.
- Post-shampoo, you can use a protein hair mask to strengthen the strands.
- Start applying a serum after washing it to tame frizz and flyaways.
- Avoid rubbing your wet hair with a towel. Instead, wrap it in a muslin (not Turkish) towel at the nape of your neck. Opt for air-drying your hair as much as possible.
- Protect your hair from the sun with umbrellas and sun protection hair sprays now available in the market. If you see hair fall, this could be a sign of hormonal imbalance. Common at this age is polycystic ovaries or iron deficiency that leads to anemia.
Protein infusion for your hair
Apply the egg on your head. Or whisk an egg with some yogurt and apply the mask to your hair and scalp. Leave it on for a while. Shampoo and condition as usual. If you do not like the smell, then add a few drops of lavender essential oil. It has a calming effect on the irritated scalp.
As you age, there are significant changes that can make your skin look dull. You need to make sure you care for your skin and do the right things at the right time.
