3. Use Lighter Products
Now as women age, midst a hurry they take up any anti ageing products they can get their hands on, but one must keep in mind that if they want to make their skin feel supple and not so prone to breakouts they must use a product that is not so thick. What would help is to make sure that they have a high anti oxidant level that will protect the skin from oxidative stress. UV protection and anti ageing products are also criterion you should not overlook while buying products.
4. Start Using Oils
To make sure that your skin continues to have the same glow and springiness, start hydrating your skin and keep it nourished and moisturized with the help of oils. These natural oils with medicinal properties are extremely beneficial and definitely make you look younger by years. Reduce the puffiness and go for products that are plant based.
5. Sunscreen Yourself
Another thing that changes as you grow older is your skin’s natural guard against the harmful rays of the sun. It is very important to make sunscreen an essential part of your routine every day to protect your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Try pineapple enzyme, glycolic or mushroom peels to rejuvenate your skin as the cellular renewal process begins to slow down.
7. Eyebrow Detailing
As you age, your hair starts thinning, so maintaining uniform brows also becomes a task. So make sure that you keep your brows healthy by applying castor oil and running an eyebrow brush through them each day.this will also help with the regrowth and shaping them.

Probably the most important tip. Gone are days where you could eat anything and still have blemish free skin, entering the thirties means that whatever you eat- a proof of it will surface through your appearance. So stop the mindless snacking and make sure you eat lots of greens and nutrients. Also, give up on faddy diets and understand your dietary needs.
