New Delhi, Lifestyle Desk, 30+ Skin Care Routine: Changes in the body are common in those who step into their 30s. The thing that worries people the most is their skin. With graying of hair, digestive problems, increased fatigue, the skin starts losing its elasticity and when you are in your 30s, all these things start getting more highlighted. So these signs of premature aging can be prevented to a great extent by proper nutrition externally and internally. So today we will learn about a basic guide here which can help in maintaining healthy skin.

1. Start a healthy diet

The effect of food is visible on the skin the earliest and also remains for a long time. That’s why experts recommend focusing more on this first. So include green vegetables, fruits and nuts in your diet as much as possible. Along with this, drink 2-3 liters of water every day. Water easily flushes out all the toxins from the body and also provides moisture to the skin, which maintains its elasticity. Due to lack of moisture, the skin becomes dry, due to which fine lines start appearing on the face.

2. Collagen for Anti-Aging Benefits

As we age, the production of collagen in the body decreases due to external factors. Collagen is a type of protein that keeps your skin healthy, glowing and youthful while maintaining its elasticity. If you have high levels of collagen in your body, your skin is naturally soft and supple. As we get older, it becomes necessary to eat clean and consume plant-based foods high in vitamin C and plant-based collagen builder supplements to ensure adequate production of collagen. It promotes the formation of collagen naturally in the body.

3. SPF is essential

Sunscreen or not, sunscreen should be a part of your everyday anti-aging kit. Most experts recommend using SPF daily to protect the skin from the strong rays of the sun. UVB can cause many problems for your skin such as sunburn, brown spots, wrinkles and breakdown of healthy skin cells.

4. Facial Massage

You must give time to massage your face. It provides many benefits to the skin, including increased blood circulation, lymphatic drainage, stimulating cell count and reducing muscle tension. Any beauty product you apply after massaging the face gets absorbed well.

5. Exfoliate, but not excessively

Exfoliation is a very important part of any skin care routine. It removes the accumulation of dead cells that cause discoloration of the skin. Exfoliating regularly keeps your skin healthy and glowing. Excessive exfoliation reduces the essential oils of the skin. Therefore, it is advised not to exfoliate more than thrice a week and then apply moisturizer.

So remember these basic tips to keep your skin healthy as you age.
