No matter how many anti-ageing products you’ve splashed on your skin, you can’t run away from the fact that you’ll eventually enter yet another decade of your life. And I hope more women would understand the terms ‘’aging gracefully’’. Though, I don’t deny that different stages of life require different beauty products that are super suitable for their skin—especially when it comes to skincare essentials. So when you reach the 30’s era of life, there are indeed certain formulas and ingredients that you need to pay extra attention to, to avoid or to apply consistently to help keep your skin maintain the radiant it deserves.
Be it your favourite moisturizer, a foundation, a powder, or even a lipstick—pay attention to the texture, the ingredients inside and most importantly, study carefully on how your skin would react after a certain amount of usage. Still confused? Below, Beauty Insider shares 5 must-have products every woman in their 30’s or above should own (and to be carried everywhere everytime they leave the house). Remember, learn to love your imperfections, and that includes your wrinkles, too.
Hyaluronic acid doesn’t only work for us with oily-prone skin, but they’re also suitable for specifically targeting ageing skin. If you’re the type of person who never used to apply hyaluronic acid based serum or moisturizer, it is never too late to start now. It is important to prep and prime your skin especially early in the morning when the skin is fresh and repaired. Of course, proper skin care is essential before you begin to add any products. Whether you’re at home or not, always make sure to apply hyaluronic acid. This powerful ingredient will not only protect your skin from the harmful UV rays but also from the fouly environment that can contribute as a skin stressor.
Powder based makeup is all fun and games during your 20’s but you should practice to minimize the application once you reach your 30’s. It is advisable for women in their 30’s and above to opt for a cream-based formula instead of powdery based. This is due to cream formulas that can be blended easily onto your skin, thus creating a more natural and flawless effect, as opposed to powder. You know how powdery products can sometimes give you that chalky and messy makeup look? For beginners, who are strangers to cream blusher, you can try using stick blushing products as an alternative. Their texture can come close to cream-based products. And instead of using a brush as an applicator, he recommends using a beauty blender or a sponge.
Go For A Nude Lipstick
I mean, it is not wrong for you to use bright and bold colours at a certain age, you do you. But we suggest staying true to a more natural shade on the lips. We recommend you lean towards a nude, slightly brown shade to elevate and enhance the structure of your face. But why nude shade, though? Because everyone in this world agrees that nude is such a universal colour. Nude or brown coloured lipstick is a perfectly-universal-flattering colour. That is why no matter what era is currently in, a good nude or brown lipstick will never go out of style. Be it in a form of gloss, matte or cream—this lipstick colour truly compliments all skin tones and eye colours.
Brown Coloured Eyeliner
Oh, and speaking of brown. Let us introduce you to another must-have beauty essential for you in the era of the 30’s—the brown eyeliner. I’m embarrassed to say that I have already ditched the black liner and gone full force with the brown liner. Reason because brown liner can help to open the eyes a bit bigger. No matter if it’s cream, kohl or liquid liner, brown is just the majestic colour that compliments every eye colour. Other colour alternatives you should consider is nude, white and prune. And instead of smoking out the eyes like how we used to do in our teenage years, gently line along the waterline and smudge it out softly. And boom, you’re done.
A Good Brow Fixer
I don’t mean to scare you but as we age, there are certain features that tend to drop a little. For example the skin around our eyes perimeter. So, of course a good brow fixer can help to put our beloved brows in place. A good brow fixer or brow gel can help give you a good lifted appearance. We suggest you look for one good brow gel or fixer that comes with a good amount of fibres and contribute to volumization and stick to it. This is the time where you should find a good particular product and stay loyal to them. Leave the tried and tested out hundreds of different products in your 20’s. Your skin won’t react the same, so always be careful. You can bring this good brow fixer anywhere though, and just touch up your brows anytime you need.
