Aging happens. Your body starts to age, and your skin shows it. The loss of collagen and elastin proteins causes the skin to loosen and sag. Gradually the fine lines transform into deeper wrinkles. If you start taking care of your skin as early as possible before the 30s, you will likely slow down the natural skin aging. Start by putting the following tips into practice.
Protect Your Skin Against UV Rays
One of people’s biggest mistakes is wearing sunscreen only at the beach or by the pool. Excessive exposure to UV rays damages your skin. It causes redness, burns, dark spots, and wrinkles. Wearing sunscreen with an SPF 40 or more should be used regularly.
Use Antioxidants & Retinoids
The antioxidants like vitamin C and E neutralize the free radicals that induce skin aging. In addition, they help regenerate collagen and restore the hydrophilic film of the skin.
Retinoids are the derivates of vitamin A that are the most potent antiaging ingredients. You can find retinoids as a topical ointment or over-the-counter skincare products. However, avoid using retinoids if you already use benzoyl peroxide, a medicine used to treat acne. This is because benzoyl peroxide can oxidize some retinoids, making them less effective.
Consider a Chemical Peel
Chemical peels are performed by dermatologists to improve the appearance of the skin. Different chemical solutions are used to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, mild scars, acne marks, and dark spots.
The chemical peel leaves your skin smooth and less wrinkled. The fair-skinned and light-haired patients are ideal for the treatment. The procedure is safe and does not have any potential side effects. You will likely observe slight redness following the treatment that subsides in a few days.
Basically, there are three types of chemical peels, light, medium, and deep. A licensed dermatologist can examine your face and recommend a peel your skin needs. At James Christian Cosmetics, we offer chemical peels. You can visit for a free consultation to discuss your skincare goals.
Botox injections are the most common and safest non-surgical injectable procedure for treating fine lines and wrinkles. It is a neuromodulator that weakens and paralyzes facial muscles, so they do not contract and become less stiff. As a result, your skin be less likely to form wrinkles and fine lines. An injectable expert or licensed aesthetician can only perform Botox.
Following the antioxidants and retinoid-containing skincare regimen with Botox treatment in your 30s can help eliminate the need for more aggressive skin rejuvenating therapies.
Dermal fillers replace the lost collagen in the skin. Many types of dermal fillers are used to fill in wrinkles and fine lines. Juvederm and Restylane are most commonly used. They restore a smoother and younger-looking skin.
Your skin starts to lose collagen in your early 30s, and the earlier treatment dramatically reduces the need for more harsh skin treatments in later years. Dermal fillers stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen protein and slow down the aging process that leads to wrinkles and sagging skin.

Maintain a Healthy Diet & Stay Hydrated
You must have heard “You Are What You Eat.” This is true. Though so many treatments are available to slow down skin aging, nothing can beat a healthy diet. Avoid high quantities of red meat and unhealthy snacks. Instead, eat plenty of green vegetables, pumpkins, carrots, salmon, avocados, and fruits.
Don’t forget to drink at least 3-4 liters of water daily. It helps eliminate toxins from the body and keep your skin healthy and fresh.
