There is a perfect skincare routine for every need, purifying, moisturizing, anti-aging, but what will be the perfect skincare after the age of 30? Today we find out together with Dr. Ilaria Lumia!
Jennifer Garner coveted them; millennials and Gen Z fear them. It’s the 30s, adulthood, years of independence, freedom, the years of a new life and also what wrinkle begins to mark your face. If you also want to start a specific skincare routine to improve your skin, this article is for you.
Today I am interviewing Dr. Ilaria Lumia, who will explain what products to use to take care of our skin after the age of 30. Hi Ilaria, thank you so much for accepting my invitation. Before we start, would you like to tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hello to the entire Skean community!
Let me introduce myself, I’m Ilaria Lumia but many people know me on social media as THE SKINERY . I am a Qualified Cosmetic Informant and I am involved in cosmetic outreach on social media, especially cosmetology consultations: skincare, haircare and bodycare.
Ilaria, tell us, what happens to our skin after the age of 30?
Over time, the skin loses its elasticity and skin firmness and unfortunately begins to mark. Among the main causes of skin aging we have the progressive loss of collagen, a key protein present at the level of the dermis. This causes the first signs of aging, early wrinkles and fine lines.
I see, so I suppose it is important to change products after 30. What are the main differences between a skincare routine in your 20s and 30s?
Usually in your 20s you are trying to keep blemishes such as excess sebum and pimples at bay; these inevitably lead to a preference for a purely purifying skincare routine. At the age of 30, the skin, as we mentioned earlier, goes into its first wrinkles, so an anti-aging and moisturizing skincare routine is preferred. The perfect skincare after the age of 30 also involves new actives and products that stimulate collagen production for firmer, smoother and more radiant skin.
On social media, we are flooded with videos in which so many products are recommended. The most “famous” anti-wrinkle actives are definitely retinol and peptides, but what are the differences? How do we choose the perfect product for us?
Social media are a great tool even though they can sometimes mislead us. Retinol and peptides are a winning pair, they work very well in synergy!
The major difference is that retinol is photosensitizing, peptides are not. In addition, retinol stimulates deep cell turnover, a mechanism that improves the skin in several ways. Peptides, on the other hand, especially “signal” peptides, send a signal to the skin to increase collagen and elastin synthesis. To choose the best product, all you have to do is try it or if you want targeted advice from an expert, book a cosmetology consultation!
An excellent peptide-based product is theEssential Serum from Skean, formulated with Actopontine peptide and the two-molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which improve skin elasticity and tone.
Thank you very much for this answer, let’s continue with the next question: what are the good habits to adopt after the age of 30?
Needless to say, a healthy lifestyle first and foremost and sunscreen like rain!
Just think, it is the ultimate anti-aging product. Then a balanced diet, the right amount of water, some physical activity and at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep. These are simple tips but they are certainly the most effective!
What would you recommend to a client of yours to build a good anti-aging skincare routine?
I would recommend simple but effective skincare, the three basic steps are: CLEANSING, MOISTURIZING AND PROTECTING. Also add a good dose of antioxidants and you’re done!
What are your beauty tips that you want to share with the Skean community ?
Remember that there is no need to have a skincare routine consisting of many steps and too many products. Even three of good quality and suitable for your skin type are enough to do a great job. “Essential” skincare is also the basis of Skean’s values, well-formulated products that work effectively on our skin.
Thank you so much for all your valuable advice, Ilaria, I am sure our community will appreciate it.
Thank you for your trust, dear greetings to the whole community!
