Smooth and elastic skin is every woman's dream. Best Life Online tells why skin condition worsens after the age of 30 and how to prevent it.

Hormones are changing

Dermatologist Elizabeth Tanzi explained that at age 30, cell turnover slows down, making the skin less firm and elastic, causing dryness and leading to occasional acne flare-ups.

Excessive sugar consumption

Sweet snacks in the evening and at night can harm your complexion. Simply cutting out sugar can help you look years younger, mainly because you avoid its toxic impact on the skin.

Sugar can break down collagen, causing the face to look less plump and tight.

Avoiding exfoliation

Exfoliation is one of those things you need to do. But if you don't get rid of all that accumulated dead skin, it can look quite awful, especially as you age.

Exfoliation removes debris and excess oil that otherwise clog pores and make the skin look older. Spending time to clear away these dull, dead cells will instantly make you appear younger and fresher.

Not drinking enough water

When you don't consume enough fluids, it shows on your skin. Decreased water intake will only make your complexion dry, less firm, and increase the appearance of wrinkles.

Avoiding sun protection

UV rays age the skin faster over time, making fine lines and wrinkles appear much easier. To prevent further damage, apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and wear protective headgear.

Not updating skincare routine

As skin type changes over time, especially if you notice oil production and breakouts, use lightweight moisturizers and serums along with a gentle sulfate-free cleanser. These products will provide deep pore cleansing without leaving the skin feeling tight and dry.

Not removing makeup

The worst thing a person in their 30s can do is not remove their makeup at night.

This leads to clogged pores and breakouts, which in turn lead to premature wrinkles.

Sleeping with makeup on doesn't give your skin a chance to rejuvenate.

Losing hyaluronic acid

Starting from the age of 20, skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid, which keeps the skin hydrated. As a result, it becomes dry and irritated.

To address this issue, it's important to use appropriate creams to restore the level of hyaluronic acid.

Frequent stress

Stress not only negatively affects your well-being but can also provoke more breakouts and other skin issues, making your complexion less pleasant.

It's worth taking time to relax and calm your nerves.
