I’ll be honest – the idea of aging has always been a fear of mine. But as I entered my 30’s, I realized that aging is beautiful and natural. Not only that but stepping into my 30’s has been like a surprise twist – even better than I imagined. It’s a decade wrapped in wisdom, security and stability, and a reassuring sense of self. I also love living life with greater humility and gratitude. Moreover, there are plenty of beauty secrets and health essentials that allow us to ease into our older years more gracefully than ever. If the battle against aging has been an uphill struggle for you, this is your sign to let it go. After countless years of experimenting with my skin, I’ve curated some proven skincare hacks tailor-made for those in their 30’s and beyond.

Use Sunscreen Daily (and Reapply)

I am sure this is something that has been instilled in you time and time again, but it’s one of the most important things (if not the most important thing) to do if you want to prevent aging. Regardless of what your day looks like, you should always be applying a generous amount of sunscreen in the morning. Whether you are outside or indoors, the sun’s rays are everywhere and long-term exposure to the sun can cause wrinkles, dark spots, and discoloration.

If you do find yourself out-and-about, consider investing in a sunscreen that you can bring with you on-the-go. There are sunscreen sticks and sunscreen sprays with SPF protection that make reapplying a breeze. So no more excuses!


Face Massages

Face massages, for starters, are like a workout for your facial muscles. The increased circulation and relaxation of muscles can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a youthful, radiant complexion. Face massages aren’t a one-size-fits-all deal; there’s a plethora of tools to choose from, each offering its unique benefits. Plus, the calming ritual can help reduce stress, a major contributor to premature aging.

The gua sha is an affordable tool to start with. This ancient Chinese technique involves using a flat, smooth tool, often made of jade or rose quartz, to gently massage the face. The method promotes lymphatic drainage, relieves muscle tension, and enhances the absorption of skincare products, ultimately contributing to a more youthful and lifted appearance. There are also fancy tools, like those from Nu Face, that stimulate facial muscles using microcurrent technology. The gentle electrical currents tighten and tone the facial muscles, sculpting your visage and diminishing the signs of aging. Regular use can lead to a more contoured and youthful look.


Now, let’s talk about the unsung hero of our nightly routine – sleep, and more specifically, tools like the sleep ring. Adequate, quality sleep is a cornerstone of any anti-aging regimen. The sleep ring, with its advanced sleep tracking and insights, ensures you get the restorative sleep your body and skin need. During deep sleep, your body repairs tissue and muscles, releasing growth hormones essential for youthful skin. Pro Tip: Switching to silk pillowcases reduces friction on your skin, preventing sleep lines and helping your skin retain its natural moisture, promoting a smoother complexion.

Red Light Therapy

A game-changer in the fight against aging, red light therapy stimulates collagen production, tightens the skin, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The gentle, non-invasive nature of red light therapy makes it a popular choice for those seeking effective, age-defying treatments. LED masks have taken the skincare world by storm, presenting an at-home solution for red light therapy. Additionally, red light lamps have gained popularity as a targeted approach to red light therapy. These lamps emit a similar wavelength of light, allowing you to focus on specific areas of concern, promoting collagen synthesis and aiding in cellular rejuvenation. Incorporating these practices into your routine can help turn back the clock and keep your skin looking radiant and youthful

A Proper Skincare Regimen

Retinols & Retinoids

Everyone in their 20’s and beyond should be integrating some form of retinol or retinoid product in their routine. This Holy Grail ingredient stimulates collagen production, while also minimizing and preventing lines and wrinkles. If you have yet to incorporate this age-reversal ingredient into your regimen, start slow and work your way up because you might have to build your tolerance. I suggest applying a small pea-sized amount every other day for a few weeks (at night only). If your skin doesn’t react, you can work your way up to daily nighttime use.


Gentle Exfoliation

Exfoliation is another necessary skincare hack to age more gracefully. Again, this might require a bit more testing to see what works best for you and your skin. For those with more sensitive skin, a chemical exfoliation product might be your best bet. While physical exfoliators work well, it’s easy to overdue it and irritate the skin. If you are able to exfoliate 1 – 2 times per week, you are guaranteed to see results!

Eye Cream

The under-eye area is the most delicate part of the face because the skin is much thinner, making it more prone to wrinkles, eye bags, and puffiness. It’s also where signs of aging will be the most prominent. This fact alone was enough to make me spring into action and invest in a cream that is especially designer for under the eyes. If anti-aging is your goal, I suggest you do the same! A rich, moisturizing eye cream will do wonders in making you appear more glowy and youthful than ever.

Start From Within

Nurturing your body from the inside out is also paramount in the battle against aging. Collagen and hyaluronic acid, key elements of youthful skin, play vital roles. Collagen, the building block of skin, gives it strength and elasticity. By incorporating collagen-rich foods like bone broth, fish, and lean meats into your diet, or opting for collagen supplements, you can aid your skin’s natural repair process and maintain its youthful firmness. Hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, is a hydration powerhouse, capable of holding up to a thousand times its weight in water. Introducing hyaluronic acid-rich foods like leafy greens, sweet potatoes, and citrus fruits, or considering hyaluronic acid supplements, helps in maintaining skin moisture, smoothness, and suppleness.

Stay Hydrated

Keeping your body well-hydrated is a cornerstone of healthy aging. As you get older, our bodies may not signal thirst as effectively, making it crucial to be proactive about our water intake. As someone who is constantly on the move, I found that forcing myself to carry a reusable water bottle everywhere with me is the best way for me to stay hydrated throughout the day.

However, if you find it challenging to meet your daily hydration goals, especially during those busy days, consider a little extra hydration boost. I’ve personally found Liquid IV to be a convenient and effective solution. It’s like a secret weapon against dehydration, giving you that extra push to stay on top of your water intake even on hectic days.

Consult a Professional

If you’re serious about combating the signs of aging and tailoring a skincare routine that fits like a glove, consulting a dermatologist is a game-changer. These skincare maestros hold the key to unlocking a rejuvenated version of you. They go beyond the realm of generic advice, crafting a plan specifically designed to tackle your unique aging concerns. They can recommend treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser therapy to address specific aging concerns. The beauty of dermatologist-recommended treatments lies in their precision. They target the exact areas needing attention, ensuring you get the best results.
