4-Part Series~Your Skin as You Age: Top 3 Skin Concerns if You're Over 30
Join us for a 4-part series that explores the most common problems that impact your skin as you age. In this article we'll guide you through how to slow-down aging effects and improve your overall skin condition.
Our 30’s are no joke. It’s like everything we chose not to do in our 20’s comes back to bite us, and our 40’s are just mocking us around the corner. It’s a stressful time, and we’re at our peak.
We’re going from being the youngest versions of ourselves to a new level of maturity. I mean, we’ve been around for three decades now.
Not one, not two, but THREE. That’s a big deal, and it’s also a big deal for our skin. Let’s face it, life gets in the way of keeping the skin we want to maintain.
Now that we’ve reached this prime decade, here are three skin conditions you may come across.
Reasons Why Acne is Becoming More Prevalent this Decade
We all know about the taboo topic: acne. It’s a rite of passage in our early years, but over time, we’re supposed to outgrow it.
However, there’s a lot of changes that go on while we’re in our 30s that could bring this rite of passage back around to us. For some of us, this might be the first-time acne occurs.
Many factors can contribute to acne. These include:
Diet – Overindulging in things like dairy, sugar, or fried and greasy foods can cause acne
Lack of Sleep – Our lives are so busy that it can be easy to forget how important sleep is
Stress – Acne is a form of stress that manifests itself physically
Medication – Some medications can cause acne as a side effect
Hormones – Acne in adult woman can be caused by a fluctuation in hormones
Another culprit for these unwanted breakouts has to do with makeup. When we are busy, our bodies become tired and sometimes we can forget to take our makeup off at night before we sleep.
Our makeup attracts the dirt and grime that we walk around throughout the day. Sleeping in our makeup prohibits our body’s natural skin regeneration cycle from occurring.
So, we should always make sure that we’re using the right makeup, cleansing our faces every night, and keeping our lifestyle in check.
But What Can You Do About Acne?
The Biology Mousse Cleanser by Lavelier is a go-to product for reducing acne, and preventing it from reoccurring.
As the cleanser is used, it turns into a rich lather that easily spreads over skin for a deep, cleaner feeling. Other benefits include:
Refreshes your skin
Luminates your skin
Dissolves away makeup, dirt, and other impurities
Energizes the appearance of skin
Use daily, and for added benefits, follow it up with the Lavelier Marine Deep Moisturizer, an anti-aging cream formulated for all skin types. With this duo, your skin will be unstoppable.
How Much Do You Know About Fine Lines?
Fine lines are faint wrinkles that appear on your face in the shape of a line. These may appear on the forehead, around the eyes, and in between the eyebrows. They may also appear around the nose, mouth, and cheeks.
Fine lines will cause your skin to appear duller because of the slow cell regeneration rate. As we age, our cells begin to break down and take longer to build back up than when we were younger.
There are a few factors that determine how well you age: Genetics and Lifestyle choices.
Lifestyle choices play a major role in what our skin looks like throughout our lives. Exposure to sun, habits such as smoking, and use of tanning beds are a few examples of lifestyle choices that speed the aging process up.
Fine lines won’t stand a chance against the Intensive Facial Peel by Lavelier. This powerful product is only used 1-2 times a week on clean, dry skin, and is massaged into the face and neck before rinsing it off with cool water.
Benefits of the Intensive Facial Peel include:
Boosts Radiance and youthful appearance
Smooths skin using the benefits of nutshell powder
Infused with age defying benefits by coral seaweed
Exfoliates skin for a cleaner and fresher appearance
Give the finishing touch with the matching Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum. It’s an easier and more beneficial way of saying goodbye to those pesky lines around the eyes. This serum is lightweight, and intensely moisturizing. It makes skin look more plump and supple around the delicate eye area.
Unbelievable Facts about Dark Circles
No one is immune to what many people refer to as raccoon eyes. These can appear after a long night with no sleep, or they can occur naturally because of aging.
As we get older, the skin around our eyes begins to thin, and the darkness we’re seeing is the deeper muscles showing through our skin.
Dark circles are skin conditions that make us look, and sometimes feel tired. It’s like physical proof that we are not well. It’s easy to succumb to nature’s plan for our skin, but for most the war with this skin condition can be an intense one.
Factors that can lead to dark circles include:
Sleep deprivation – Most who lack sleep notice their dark circles are more pronounced. This is because of the changes in fluid when a person is lying down
Genetics – Dark circles can be attributed to darker skin pigmentation. Those with darker skin are more prone to this skin condition
Lifestyle choices – Exposure to sun and smoking are the major factors that will worsen this issue
To be rid of dark circles, we need something that is specially designed to target the appearance of dark circles and hyperpigmentation.
That’s where the Lavelier Skin Clair Repair comes into play.
This special Lavelier formula contains the superheroes of skin ingredients like kojic acid, lactic acid, and the melanin-inhibiting effects of Oligopeptide-68.
Combined, these ingredients help to reduce signs of skin discoloration and maintain a brighter complexion that is more balanced and radiant.
For overall beautiful skin, despite any problems that arise, it is always beneficial to treat your skin to a microdermabrasion treatment. The microdermabrasion treatment is a specialized mechanical exfoliation that removes the top layer of skin.
This removal of skin lifts away any dirt, oil, and other debris our faces accumulate throughout our busy day.
Microdermabrasion is great for multiple skin conditions, including:
Acne and Acne scarring
It is all too easy to fall into the trap of wanting to try anything and everything, driven desperate by a mile-long laundry list of skin and aging woes.
But before acting on this, take a deep breath and focus on just one major concern and hunt down the very best thing for treating it within your price comfort zone.
Then give it time to work. After that’s been nailed, you can branch out to tackle other issues.
And, of course, keep an eye out for anything even better coming along!
