Caring for your skin is a lifelong process that pays off in huge dividends. The damage done at 20 may not be so noticeable right away, but becomes more obvious as the years go by. In order to stay youthful, follow these tips from The Dr. Oz Show to look radiant in your 30's.
The most important action you can take is to protect your skin from UV rays and staying away from cigarettes. Sun damage is a significant threat and is responsible for 80% of environmental harm to the skin. Wearing sunscreen regularly with an SPF of 30 or higher is the best thing you can do for your skin. Smoking decreases the production of collagen causing skin to sag, so give up the smokes for your skin, and your lungs too.
Trying to be stress free can help your skin look great, as well as improve your health. In your thirties, stress triggers the secretion of a substance called sebum under your skin. Too much sebum and you'll start seeing serious acne breakouts. Take time out to meditate and get exercise to help manage your stress.
Drinking more water and less alcohol will also help you look your best. Alcohol may be the reason for your skin's redness and cutting back to no more than 7 drinks per week can improve the appearance of your skin. Additionally, retinol products promote cell turnover and collagen production, smoothing out wrinkles. Apply retinol every other night until you're accustomed to it, then use nightly.
