In my teenage years, I was pretty blessed with skin. Aside from the occasional breakout, my skin was generally clear and fair. The only consistent step in my routine was step one – wash my face. And if I’m honest, sometimes I didn’t even do it! (Don’t judge me young.) Then college happened and I had my first bout of acne, along with several other unexpected skin changes that caught me completely off guard. Suddenly my skin reacted more responsively to changing weather, I saw bags under my eyes and was even affected by a certain hyperpigmentation. For the first time, I had to figure out an actual skin care routine that worked for me.
Things settled down for a while, but just when I thought I had totally figured things out, my late twenties hit and again my skin was changing. Apparently overnight it was drier, I saw fine lines forming and my skin was just dull. Luckily, I knew the exercise this time around and since then I’ve set up a skin care routine that will keep my skin clear and glowing as I’ve passed into my 30s. I put it all out, so keep scrolling to find some of the best products to try in your 30s.
