Three Must-Have Skincare Products for Women Over 30
“I always tell every woman whether they are dark skin or light skin, if you are approaching 30 you need to be on these three products; SPF, retinol and vitamin C. Everything else is nice to have but these three things are proven to work and so it would be a shame to miss out,” notes board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sheila Nazarian
You should be on an SPF 30 and above. It doesn’t make much of a difference if it is SPF 50 or SPF 100 and above. Every woman should also be on Vitamin C in the morning as part of their morning routine. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and is biopsy proven to reverse sun damage. Retinol is a vitamin A derivative and is also proven to be effective.
“When my patients ask what percentage of retinol they should be using. I suggest start a couple of nights a week with the weakest form of retinol which is 0.025% and slowly work your way up and once you’ve got to seven nights a week then you can move to a stronger form,” explains Dr. Nazarian.
