In your 30s, you finally feel like you are taking control of your life. Your relationships and the goals that you are working on. This is your prime time where you try to strike the perfect personal and work-life balance. Moreover, you have learnt valuable lessons and made you into the strong and confident person that you are today.
This feeling is extremely empowering, but this comes with a small price. As you slowly approach your 40s, your body metabolism starts to slow down, and its ability to repair itself also slows down. During this time, you should be extremely cautious about your skin and overall health.
Here are 8 skincare tips that you should follow in your late 30s
1. Stay hydrated
Whether you are in your 20s or your 30s, you need to stay hydrated. Drinking adequate water not only improves your overall health but also keeps your skin healthy and glowing. To keep your skin hydrated, make sure to moisturize in order to avoid dry and flaky skin. As you step into your late 30s, your skin needs more than just skincare products, and hydration is the key to well-maintained youthful skin.
2. Using an under-eye cream
The eye area is one of the first areas to develop early signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, crow's feet, and other signs like dark circles, puffiness, and dryness around your eyes. Since this area is sensitive and delicate you should have a dedicated under-eye cream to fight these signs.
3. Invest in products with skin-loving ingredients
In your late 30s, your skin needs a little extra love and care. While buying skincare or makeup, there are certain ingredients that you need to look out for. Key ingredients like vitamin C, resveratrol, and retinol help in regenerating cells, exfoliation, and achieve a brighter youthful skin. On the other hand, harmful ingredients like phthalates and parabens should be avoided.

4. Opt for regular facials and face masks
Going for facials not only helps attain radiant skin but also helps improve blood circulation in the skin. These facials can be combined with products that contain anti-aging properties and you are good to go. On days when you are unable to go to the salon, try an all-natural DIY facial at home or simply get your hands on DeBelle Bio-Cellulose Sheet Mask in Youth Reviving, it rejuvenates your skin from the comfort of your home. It is hydrating and hugs your skin to transfer all the nutrients in your skin effectively.
5. Say hello to a Cleanse-Tone-Moisturize routine
Often known as a CTM routine, this involves the essential steps of a skincare routine. If you cannot maintain a skincare routine religiously, make sure that you at least follow CTM every single day before you go to bed.
Cleansing your face gets rid of all the dirt and debris that gets accumulated throughout the day. Toner ensures there are no traces of dirt or impurities and also helps with the tightness of your pores. Lastly, moisturizer helps with hydration, repair, and nourishes your skin overnight.
6. Your 30s need SPF 30
When you are in your late 30s, you are hopping from one place to another, hustling to get the work done, stepping out for household chores, or simply rewarding yourself with a good beach vacation, during all this sunscreen is something that will protect your skin from photo-aging and the harmful UV rays of the sun. Irrespective of the weather, the sun is constant and rises every day, UVA and UVB rays are major contributors to slow aging.
7. Exfoliate occasionally
It is advised to exfoliate your skin three times a week with a face scrub. It helps them control sulfate-free oil build-up called sebum that clogs your pores and causes acne and other skin problems. It is recommended to use a face scrub before going to bed, as the skin renews itself overnight.
Be sure to not over-exfoliate i.e. more than three times a week, or it will result in dry and flaky skin. Indulge yourself in DeBelle Facial Exfoliator Masks enriched with Aloe vera extract, Jojoba Oil, and Argan oil, it helps to tighten the skin leaving you with younger-looking glowing skin.

8. Manage stress
Wondering why you get acne just before the presentation that you were super stressed about? It is because stress has a direct relationship with your skin and body. It causes a chemical reaction and tells your body to produce a hormone called cortisol.
This hormone is not your friend as it makes glands in your skin to be more oily. And oily skin leads to acne and other skin problems. Give yourself a break and pamper yourself now and then. Relax and put a sheet mask on, paint your nails or try a new hobby. Everyone deserves some me-time to get back stronger.
Apart from taking care of your skin, you also need to take care of your body and mental health. Being in your late 30s isn’t easy, but no one said it can’t be fun. Now go out there, change your skincare routine and be the beautiful woman that you are meant to be.
