8 Secrets to Gorgeous Skin in Your 30's.

An Esthetician’s Guide to your Glowiest, Dewiest version of you.

You have entered the 30's and you are noticing your skin is not as bouncy and radiant as it used to be. You may have noticed fine lines or wrinkles, acne or a dull complexion.

You are not alone… Once you turn 30 it's time to take your skincare seriously. It's not about implementing a 9-step skincare routine and more about following a few key principles that will have you at your glowiest, dewiest version of you, all before you even think about applying your makeup.

With a decade experience working as an esthetician in the medical aesthetics industry, here are my top 10 skincare philosophies I have learned and live by that will have you at your most confident self:

Not everyone has access to medical spas with trained estheticians who are experts at helping your skin reach its potential. If you were to visit a medical spa at the age of 30 or older you would be put on the three important essential products that are non negotiable. Once the three pillar products are implemented daily, then we move to the more advanced suggestions. You have two times a day you can treat your skin and no amount of botox, filler or laser will provide the kind of results a skincare foundation will provide (I have seen thousands of women try to get around this fact and I promise it doesn't work).

The 3 Essential Products for Beautiful Skin:

Retinol is considered the holy grail of noninvasive wrinkle-prevention. When applied topically, this vitamin A derivative stimulates collagen production and cell turnover, which reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens out complexion, and unclogs pores.

One of my favorite products to use with retinol is the Skincare Sunscreen I created. This product has been my secret weapon for years now and I'm not ashamed to admit that I use it every single night! It's packed with antioxidants and other ingredients that help to improve skin clarity and tone, which makes it perfect for use on your face or body!

3. The secret to wearing SPF everyday is finding one you LOVE! I typically choose one with a tint and skincare benefits and keep it in my makeup drawer to I never forget to put it on.

The secret to wearing SPF everyday is finding one you LOVE! I typically choose one with a tint and skincare benefits and keep it in my makeup drawer to I never forget to put it on.

I created a sunscreen based on popular demand, being a busy mom myself, having products that provide multi purposes is Ideal. I developed The Modern Esthetician Skincare Sunscreen because it not only provides a physical 30 spf but it also has a natural tint that blurs imperfections as well as provides skincare benefits.

It’s important to take care of your skin because it’s the largest organ in your body and absorbs everything you put on it. You want your skin to look good so you can glow from the inside out!

4. Feather down your skincare to your neck and decollete every AM + PM

I've been feathering down my skincare to my neck and decollete for years now, and I have to say—it's a game changer.

You see, it's easy to forget about the skin on your neck and décolle because it's out of sight, out of mind. But the truth is that we often don't realize the signs of aging and sun damage on our neck or décolletage until it's too late. Prevent that and keep your neck aging with grace by feathering down your skincare to your neck and lower.

6. Glowing Skin comes to those who Double Cleanse.

YOU KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF SPF, but are they removing it correctly?

Cleaning your face properly is such an important part of you caring for your skin. Think of it this way, if you’re “washing your face” but not really cleansing it properly then it makes it difficult for your serums and other products to work as well as they should.

Imagine your freshly cleansed skin as the base. Without this, all the other steps become, much less useful. So, where do you start?

  • Dispense cleansing balm into the palm of one hand and use the fingers on your opposite hand to apply it to dry skin, massaging in gentle circular motions, including around the eyes, for 30–45 seconds.

  • Rinse and remove the cleanser with luck warm water.

  • Dispense water based face wash into palm and apply on wet skin, Massage in gentle circular motions for 30-45 seconds.

  • Rinse to remove the cleanser with luck warm water.

  • Rebalance skin's barrier, Double the fun and quadruple the benefits.

  • My favorite Double Cleansing products here:

7. If you mess with a blemish it always takes 3 times longer to heal!

We know, we know. You want to pick at your acne. You want to get it all out of your skin and get rid of those little red bumps for good.

But here's the thing: when you pick at your breakouts, you're actually causing a lot more damage than you think. Not only are you prolonging the healing process (which takes 3x longer when you're messing with it), but there's also a chance of scarring or skin discoloration.

So instead of picking, try these three steps:

1. Ice your breakout right away. This helps reduce swelling and redness immediately and can help keep any bacteria from spreading throughout your face.

2. Apply a spot treatment after icing your breakout—that way, when the redness goes down, there's still something working on getting rid of those pimples!

3. Apply an acne patch at night before bed—this is a great way to keep bacteria away from open wounds while you sleep

8. I give my skin a light chemical peel every month.

Chemical peels can help with many skin concerns and is a great way to give your skin an instant boost. A chemical peel is when a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove its outer layer, revealing fresher, younger looking skin.

You may be wondering why you should consider getting a chemical peel? Chemical peels are known for their ability to improve the appearance of the skin, especially when it comes to treating fine lines, sun damage, uneven pigmentation and acne scarring all without experiencing any downtime aka no visible signs of skin peeling.

I give my skin a light chemical peel every month. A monthly light chemical peel is often called a red carpet peel because it instantly gives your skin the most radiant glow, clears up breakouts, and evens out your skin texture making you want to go makeup free. But it not only gives instant skin boosting benefits. It also contributes to long term results such as:

1. Gives Your Skincare Products a Boost

2. Minimize Sun Damage

3. Control Melasma

4. Soften Fine Lines

5. Reduce Acne Marks

Your 30's can be one of the best decades to watch your skin care initiatives pay off. You are starting to take better care of yourself and because you are conscious of what you put into your body, you have more energy and focus. Be mindful to hydrate before moisturizing, and think about more deeply nourishing ingredients for your skincare products. By doing this you will ensure you are protecting your skin from future damage and prevent premature aging from occurring in your mid-30's. This mini healthy aging regime will also help keep your skin shining so that when it comes time to apply makeup, a few light layers will do the trick!
