Skincare in your 30's looks different than in your 20's. Hormone levels start to shift, fine lines and wrinkles start to pop up, and dullness becomes a regular occurrence. We've shared a few of our favorite skincare staples on our Instagram (@simplicityandcoffee - see the beauty highlight) and in this recent beauty routine post, but today we wanted to focus on our favorite items that we've found to visibly combat signs of aging.
Dermalogica Rapid Reveal Peel
$85 at Ulta Beauty
When it comes to a beauty product that delivers big results fast, nothing works as well as the Rapid Reveal Peel. Within days, skin is brighter and firmer thanks to Dermalogica's unique complex of phytoactive AHA extracts, lactic acid and fermented plant enzymes. You can use it several days in a row to kick-start your skin, then switch to using it periodically to maintain.
Murad Vita-C Glycolic Brightening Serum
$80 at Ulta Beauty
I used this all summer long in 2019, and despite the mask-wearing, my skin has never looked so good! The difference maker? One-of-a-kind gold stabilized Vita-C Complex that enhances L-ascorbic acid stability and potency to brighten skin. That combined with glycolic acid to exfoliate dulling surface cells enhances vitamin C delivery for dramatically brighter, healthier-looking skin.
FINE LINES & WRINKLES
Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift Mask
$69 at Sephora
I started using this when I recorded a ridiculous video of myself lip-sinking an Adele song to send to a friend, and realized that the sags, bags, and wrinkles around my eyes when I made dramatic expressions were horrifying. It's been 4 weeks of using it nightly, and my eyes have improved substantially. Thanks to ingredients like fermented yeast and hyaluronic acid, my eyes are lifted and less puffy. My favorite part, though, is the cooling massage applicator. It instantly relaxes and de-puffs.
Dermalogica Neck Fit Contour Serum
$82 at Ulta Beauty
I didn't realize how little care I took of my neck & décolletage until I sat through a master class with @DermalogicaLaura on this powerful new product. The skin on our neck and chest is surprisingly delicate, and simple activities like starting down at your phone (aka Tech Neck) can damage your skin! Thankfully, under your skin is a layer of facia that wants to help hold your skin in the correct place. The Neck Fit Contour Serum was created with FlexLift Contour Technology, containing an innovative blend of peptides that help minimize fine lines and wrinkles while toning skin over time. The unique roller applicator evenly distributes serum and provides an immediate tightening and lifting effect that sculpts skin for a more contoured appearance. In layman's terms? You see the effects immediately while the formula continues to work over time to give you tighter, more sculpted skin.
Dermalogica PowerBright Dark Spot Serum
$95 at Ulta Beauty
Last but not least is this power-hitter. I've tried dark spot serums before, but nothing has worked quite like this one. Dark spots are a result of over-production of melanin in your skin. This serum decreases overactive production, allowing those spots to slowly go back to your natural skin tone. It's also formulated with light-diffusing technology that begins to balance the appearance of uneven pigmentation within days. Confession: I've tried it on some problem areas besides my face, and those spots have faded too.
