About the Expert
Hello, I'm Kristy Charlier, professional aesthetician. And, I'm going to talk to you today about skin care for women in their 30s. As women get into their 30s, they start to see the more visible signs of aging. Fine lines start to form around the crow's feet. Frown lines from, you know, using the muscle. And then, the delicate eye area under here might have a little bit of crepiness. Brown pigmentation starts to come to the surface, so that might form itself in brown pigmentation. Also, damage to capillaries, usually evident along the cheek line here, sometimes from over-scrubbing skin. And, also down in the nasal folds here, there's a lot of little capillaries. Sometimes, there's a bit of scarring from, you know, acne that they might have had in their teens. As we get into our 30s, our skin cells are not turning over every 28 days as with the younger skin. They're lasting a little bit longer. So, it's about every 60 days your natural shedding of your dead skin cells. So, you want to make sure that you're speeding this up to get rid of the dead skin surface cells, and that you're following that with a moisturizer that is beneficial for your skin, that's going to retain the moisturizer and help with repair. When you choose the right moisturizer, your skin will have a immediate reaction, because these nutrients are going down into the cell tissues, providing that glowy, dewy skin that we're all looking for in our 30s. So, on Chelsea I'm going to use the L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Day/Night Cream. You should have clean fingers before dipping them into the tub, or you can opt to use a sterilized cotton tip, grabbing a pea-size amount of product, which is enough for the whole face. Work this into the fingertips. Going to spread this over Chelsea's face. Want to start with the more dry areas of Chelsea's skin, which is the cheek area, and we're going to go down to the more oily areas, and then across the bridge of the nose. And then, we're going to smooth this around, and make sure that it's rubbed into all areas. As we get older, our skin loses the ability to retain moisture. We need to give back to our skin, so we need to provide it with ingredients such as Vitamin E, glycerin - which are powerful antioxidants and humectants - that means that they draw moisture from the outside air, protecting the surface of the skin, and aid in tissue repair and healing. Added into this product is caffeine. It's a powerful vaser constrictor, which helps to tighten the skin. Other ingredients that you should look for that are around today are your new ingredients, such as peptides. They actually help with cell communication between the living layers of the skin and the dead layers of the skin. So, as you age, those communication processes slow down. So, we want to actually speed them up. So, also as we age and we lose collagen elastin, this part of the skin here starts to come down, gravity starts to take hold. We want to make sure that we have a good support structure, and use powerful antioxidants like Vitamin E, Vitamin C, that are going to repair and pull that skin tissue together. So, that's how you take care of skin in your 30s. I'm Kristy Charlier. Thanks for watching.
