We believe aging is inevitable and beautiful. But having been bombarded with anti-aging advertisements since we were kids, it’s understandable to think aging is the worst. But it’s really not. It’s gorgeous!
So take care of your pretty self by understanding your skin’s needs, by meeting with a dermatologist and following a skincare routine you love. And while skincare routines can vary greatly depending on your skin type, age (early or late 30s?) and even ethnicity, we’ve listed some of our favorite beauty products that will keep your skin feeling as great as it is.
Your skincare routine should include a gentle, refreshing, hydrating cleanser. Simple Face Wash is all of those things combined and more.
If you’re not used to using a gel cleanser, it might take some time to acclimate to, but it’s well worth it! The facial wash gently cleanses away impurities and leaves your skin feeling moisturized. The product is free from irritants, so it’s perfect for those with sensitive skin.
Using a daily moisturizer is important for a plethora of reasons, but using one with SPF is even more important. We like Olay’s Complete UV365 Moisturizer for an everyday face lotion and SPF. Just apply it in the morning after cleansing and go about your day. If you’re going to be spending a day at the beach, we advise adding more sunscreen on top.
Beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid) is the star in this toner, as it gently exfoliates to target hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and reduces the appearance of large pores and oily skin. Plus, it’s infused with green tea extract, orange blossom water, and Vitamin E. What could be better?
There are those days when you will be spending more time outside, and we recommend using Sun Bum’s Mineral SPF 30 Tinted Sunscreen Face Lotion. Skin cancer claims victims each year, and your best defense against it is using a broad-spectrum and physical sunscreen. Plus, this one features a soft tint to soften the look of your skin.
As a 37-year-old, I have just started incorporating serums into my skincare routine. I love it now, and I am wondering why I waited so long to try it!
The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is a great product to test the waters in the serum world. Hydrating and brightening, this serum is formulated without fragrance, parabens or sulfates.
The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is another must have skin serum. It helps even out skin texture and minimizes enlarged pores. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free.
