Skincare Commandments for Your 30s [The Best Natural Skincare Routine for Your 30s]

Thou shalt maintain, protect, and prevent. 

Obey these three skincare commandments and you’ll go directly to skincare heaven. When you follow the best natural skincare routine in your 30s your skin will remain radiant for a lifetime. Keeping that glow depends on much more than a prayer; it requires a dedicated skincare regimen and effective natural products.

After your tumultuous 20s, the third decade often comes as a relief. You’re settled, confident, secure, and feeling oh-so-sexy. You’re old enough to know better but young enough to do it anyway. You’re launching a career, business, or family. Your 30s skin is at its peak-- vibrant, youthful, and bouncy. Life is busy, so self-care needs to be a priority. Now is the time to create a skincare routine that will keep your complexion looking luminous and young.

Best Natural Skincare Routine Tips for Your 30s

We can’t bottle time, so we carved out these three simple commandments to keep your skin in peak condition throughout the decades. The best natural skincare routine for your 30’s isn’t just about keeping your skin healthy now, it’s about establishing habits that will last a lifetime.

Here’s how you do it...

  • Maintain. Skin is more than skin deep. Your complexion is only the tip of the iceberg. The skin you are revealing to the world is called the epidermis. The dermis and the hypodermis are the scaffolding that supports the epidermis. Maintaining your skin by nourishing and pampering those inner layers will keep your skin looking brighter for years to come. 
  • Prevent. Your skin is composed of protein, water, and fat. Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are the three proteins that keep your skin looking pretty. They’re responsible for its pillowy rebound effect and the fullness which keeps you looking young. All three of these proteins live in the dermis, the second layer of your skin. Collagen fortifies, elastin infuses resilience and bounce, and hyaluronic acid plumps the skin and supports collagen production. The hard truth, ladies and gentlemen, is that the production of these proteins begins to slow after age 25 and is not naturally replaced by the body. The best natural skincare routine for your 30s works to prevent the deterioration of these elements.
  • Protect. Your skin is subject to the whims of the environment. Sun, wind, and extreme temperatures can impact the appearance of your complexion. Stress and hormones are also culprits in draining your skin of natural vibrancy. Dehydration depletes the skin of its rosy sheen and causes discomfort. Doing your best to protect your skin from the elements will go a long way to maintaining the contours of youth. 

Incorporate these commands into your life now and you’ll enjoy luminous skin for years to come.

An Affordable Skincare Routine for Your 30s

Incorporating our three skincare commandments comes down to including anti-aging products and strategies into your skincare routine. At Petunia Skincare, we’re big fans of serums because of the beneficial boost their small molecular structure provides the skin. Of course, we love moisturizers too but they generally address the outer layer of the skin.

Hey, Bright Eyes! 

The first signs of aging in your early 30s occur around the eyes. Tiny lines or crow’s feet start to thread from the temple to the corner of the eye. The surrounding muscles get a great deal of use, and over time, wrinkles begin to form. Left unattended, they can deepen. 

Lack of sleep may come into play, leaving dark circles beneath the eyes. Frown lines may start to appear between your eyes. 

So what’s a girl or a guy to do? Add an eye serum like our Revitalize Eye Serum to your skincare routine. Revitalize Eye Serum contains cucumber and organic tea to cool and brighten. It also boasts Matrixyl 3000, a sophisticated peptide synergy that encourages skin repair and Vitamin E to moisturize and exfoliate, together with hyaluronic acid to plump those hollows under the eyes. 


Best Face Forward

As you travel along this exciting decade, you may experience some melasma (darkening of the skin) due to hormones, sun damage, dehydration, dryness, and a few acne breakouts on your face.

Your face may appear leaner as you edge closer to 39 due to the decline in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. The lines along the forehead may start to deepen, your jowls to slacken, and the lines (marionette lines) around your mouth may become more pronounced. 

Help arrives in a handy little bottle from your friends at Petunia Skincare. 

Our Anti Aging Skin Clearing Serum checks all the boxes on our three commandments. Our special blend includes vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that exfoliates the skin to encourage cell turnover and collagen production to relax the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, niacin to brighten and calm redness, and salicylic acid to address acne and target fine lines. It also combats age spots and sun damage. We’re obsessed with this serum, and you will be too.  

It is never too early to include a retinol product in your cleansing-toning-hydrating routine. Our Retinol 2.5% Serum contains a potent dose of 2.5% retinol. Retinol revives and rejuvenates tired skin. It fights dehydration and smoothes out crinkly skin, a derivative of Vitamin A, retinol is the go-to in the battle against aging.  

Don’t Forget the Décolleté!

Your complexion doesn’t stop at the jawline.  Hello, décolleté!  The area between your chin and neck is exposed to the elements and needs some tender loving care. This delicate area is prone to brown spots and wrinkles from sun damage and dehydration. Our Anti Aging Skin Clearing Serum has you covered. Treat your décolleté to a few drops of this serum and see the difference.

Give Yourself A Hand

You may be blessed with flawless skin, but your hands can give you away.  As we age, the skin of our hands begins to thin, veins become more visible, and dreaded brown spots start to appear. Massage a few drops of Petunia’s Anti Aging Skin Clearing Serum into your hands to keep them supple and smooth, or add to your favorite hand lotion before applying.
