When we hit our 30s, it is possible that skin can already begin to lose some of its elasticity, and it may begin to show some fine lines and wrinkles. But don’t get too caught up about it! This decade is all about gaining confidence, and embracing your true self, your true beauty. If you are taking good care of yourself, and your skin, your face is going to evolve naturally and beautifully. However, it’s time to tweak your skincare regimen and add in some antioxidants to prevent free-radical damage, and perhaps a really good anti-inflammatory to ward off redness, puffiness and imbalances.

EXFOLIANT AND BRIGHTENER
Before you get paranoid about that first wrinkle, the most important thing that you can do is pay attention to your skin tone and complexion. 30-something skin starts to look a little duller as the regeneration of skin cells starts to slow down.
