Skin Care for Women Over 35

Aging takes a toll on women especially when it comes to inevitable skin conditions that are associated with aging. Women approaching the age of 35 years may realize that they don’t have the same plump, smooth and flawless skin that they used to have in their twenties.

Some of these skin conditions include:

  • Wrinkles
  • Paleness
  • Age spots and cystic acne
  • Sagging skin
  • Thin appearance
  • Dryness

While most of these conditions are irreversible, developing skincare habits for beautifying and healing your skin can help to reduce these aging signs.

Tips for Skin Care at 35 Years:

Avoid exposing your skin to direct sun

Exposure to sun has adverse effects on the skin as it can limit the elasticity of the skin and it can cause pigment changes as well. This is what gives rise to skins conditions such as age spots and skin growths. Other effects include dry skin, wrinkles, and freckles. Exposure to sun can also lead to skin cancer, a condition that is more prevalent to women of this age.

To avoid all these, it is recommended that you wear a sunscreen regardless of the weather condition and in addition to this, you should try and limit sun exposure between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Skincare related foods

There are certain foods that are known to curb the symptoms of aging skin and they have worked wonders on many women. Such foods include eggs and avocados which contain biotin, an essential element that helps with dry skin. Tomatoes, on the other hand, contain antioxidants that fight all free radicals that damage your skin cells. Others include salmon which helps in skin elasticity and pomegranates that help to improve collagen production.  Here are some of the foods you can eat for your skin.

Skin Care Products

There are plenty of skin care products which are easily accessible that provide anti-aging effects. They include moisturizing products for curbing skin dryness and chemical peels that’s helps to remove dead skins and give you a youthful look. The effectiveness of these products varies from one individual to the other and also it depends on the active ingredient. Some treatments tend to react with some skins which is why you should always seek the services of a dermatologist to get a treatment that suits your skin.

Lifestyle habits

There are certain lifestyle habits that contribute to the aging of your skin. For example, smoking narrows blood vessels thus limiting the amount of vitamins and nutrients that reaches your skin. Smoking also causes wrinkles and it damages elastin and collagen that encourages a youthful skin.

Using hot harsh soaps and hot water can rob off the skin of natural oils leading to dryness. To avoid this, use mild soap or just plain (warm) water and pat it dry instead of rubbing it.
