Every lady’s dream is not a handsome man, not a bag full of cosmetics and not even a wardrobe filled with Zara and Vero Moda; but every woman’s dream is to have a flawless and wrinkle free skin even after the age of 30 and this is possible only when they maintain certain Skin Care Routine.
Take celebrities for example; forget the magazine pictures they pose for, those are Photoshop effects, but the real ones – in between shots, the ones they update on social media sites and the ones that are clicked when they walk down the red carpet of different shows. They look gorgeous and fiery; no, in fact, they look drop dead gorgeous just because of the various skin care tips that they follow.
The truth… the reality check
What do you think is the reason behind such celluloid free and wrinkle free skin? Do you wonder if they have enough time to try the home remedies we are so fond of? Well of course home remedies are awesome and effective but we aren’t house wives anymore, neither do we have time to go through self- pampering sessions. So what do these actors and models do? Which skin care tips do they follow? Well, hence why we have top notch salons and beauty spas ready to take over our acnes and blackhead marks.
Contrary to the myth that retorts too much of beauty therapy and treatment is harmful for the natural skin, I would like to say that no, too much of chemicals and too many wrong products are harmful for your skin.
Skin Care Tips at 30
As soon as we step on our 30th year, we start to notice the preliminary ageing signs – a wrinkle or two, sagging skin under the chin, too many black spots, acnes and open pores. Now’s the time to re-think in throwing away the face wash your mom gave you when you were 12.
Here is wonderful skin care routine you should consider in your 30s
1. Clean – Cleansers helps to remove the first layer of dirt and oil. Choose a cleanser that is soap free, water soluble and gentle.2. Exfoliate – Exfoliation is must for removing dead cells and dirt. Although, scrubbing too much may damage the skin, it is recommended to exfoliate twice in a week.3. Serums and toners – Serums and toners soothe the exfoliated skin and close the open pores. Toners keep your skin hydrated and supple.4. Moisturizers – Moisturizers help to rejuvenate dried up skin after wash. Apply moisturizer that contains SPF. The SPF protects your skin from the ultra violet rays the sun emits.
However, there are targeted skin care routines done in salons which focus on deep cleaning, blemishes removal, treating dark spots, acne removal, bleach and other spot treatments. It is advised not to try anything at home without knowing the product and the outcome.
5. Spa treatments – There are two types of Spa treatments; one to relieve stress and another to get a clearer and rejuvenated skin. You have to consult an expert spa therapist for suggestions. Different skins entail different services. Inform about your discomforts to the Salon artist so that they can lay special attention on the problem areas. The amount of pressure is the true element of an efficient Spa Therapy. Spa therapies include;
- Acupressure/ Acupuncture
- Body Wraps (herbal, clay and paraffin)
- Salt Scrubs
- Aromatherapy, Ayurvedic therapy and Reiki therapy
Ask for expert opinions; experts denote not any local hairdresser and make-up artist but certified people who are aware of various products and brands. Don’t ever opt for cheap brands and products and later put the blame on salons and therapies. Like how people learn engineering from proficient professors and not from cowboys, similarly for your skin choose a knowledgeable specialist and not the around the corner hair salon.
