Facial care for demanding skin over 30


The condition of demanding skin over 30 is affected by various internal and external factors. A major cause of changing skin from the age of 30 is a reduced metabolism, which influences your whole body. We’ll tell you what to look out for on this page.  

The signs of demanding skin over 30

Collagen production reduces from around 30 years of age, and this has a visible effect on the skin's resilience and firmness. Where smile lines used to disappear again within seconds, now they last “written all over your face” for as long as several minutes and sometimes don’t go away at all. Even the wrinkles from your pillow can be seen after a night mostly on your face and take some time to disappear again. Other signs include increased dryness, reduced skin density and a decrease in connective tissue.

Hormonal changes, which happen to women periodically, have an effect on the appearance of your skin. Although the skin’s natural ageing process cannot be stopped, it can be delayed by proper care. The aim of facial care from age 30 is to increase the resilience of your skin and at the same time prevent wrinkles, among other things. On the one hand, this can be done by using the best care products for you and on the other hand, using the appropriate care routine.

Skin care: Valuable ingredients for wrinkle prevention 

The correct care for demanding skin over 30 usually relies on moisturising ingredients that help to replenish natural moisture deposits. In addition, carefully developed formulas with Q10, organic aloe vera, organic algae or karanja oil are particularly suitable for facial care from the age of 30 to maintain a beautiful, radiant complexion. Nourishment should supply the skin with ingredients that it can no longer produce itself in sufficient quantities. For example, hyaluronic acid is one of these essentials that is responsible for storing moisture.

From the age of 30, your skincare regime will be increased at one stage or another, as the body is no longer so well supported by its own metabolism. A moisturising serum should therefore be integrated into your routine to return some of the moisture to the skin that it loses over time. Eye creams that tackle the now gradually visible smile lines will make tired eyes shine again. However, the thin skin under the eyes should not be given excessive care either. It’s therefore best to use an eye cream that is complementary to your day and night cream.

A night cream is also good for faces over 30 because the ingredients it contains can be absorbed overnight. Ingredients like vitamin A can help to balance damage caused by UV light.

A face cream for skin over 30 usually contains ingredients such as vitamins A, C, E or coenzyme Q10.

Proper cleansing for demanding skin over 30

A cleansing emulsion is particularly suitable to avoid straining the skin’s natural protective barrier too much and at the same time remove make-up, excess sebum and dirt. From age 30, you can also use a toner after cleansing to rebalance the skin. You can also use an exfoliator once a week to remove the dead skin cells and cleanse the pores.

The important thing for facial cleansing over the age of 30 is that the cleansing products contain rehydrating properties in order to prevent the skin from drying out too much and to preserve the elasticity. It is especially important to cleanse skin over 30 in the evening, as dirt builds up on your face during the day and needs to be removed. Mild cleansing milk or emulsion helps to prepare the skin for nighttime care.

5 care tips for skin over 30 

1. For a glowing complexion when you get up and a visibly restful sleep, you can mix some self-tanning lotion into your night cream. Hide the traces of a stressful day and give your skin the extra care it deserves.

2. Bathtub beauty: Nourishing masks and intensive treatments work better when your pores ae open This allows care ingredients to be better absorbed and work exactly where they should. When you’re lying in the bath, that is the best time to apply a purifying mask and let it take effect

3. Vitamins in your food are just as important as vitamins in your care products. Even though vitamin A and vitamin C are particularly helpful in daily anti-ageing skincare, they only ever work on the skin. To give the best care to your body, and thus also to the skin, you should be vigilant about a vitamin-rich and balanced diet

4. You can give skin regeneration a helping hand with weekly exfoliation. This allows you to remove old flakes of skin and help the skin to renew itself. Our exfoliators made of jojoba or silica provide your skin with naturally beautiful nourishment and are particularly environmentally friendly

5.Skincare products can be particularly effective at night because they literally help the skin to sleep. It is therefore particularly recommended that moisturising ingredients such as aloe vera, coenzyme Q10 and hyaluronic acid are included in your night care

At a glance:

What faces over 30 need

  • Due to a slower metabolism, facial skin no longer regenerates as quickly as in previous years, once you turn 30
  • Care products containing the skin’s natural substances such as coenzyme Q10 or hyaluronic acid are particularly effective from the age of 30 because they supply the skin with the nourishing substances that it can no longer produce itself
  • A moisturising serum will provide an additional dose of moisture.
  • A special eye cream and a more comprehensive night cream should now be part of your standard skin care regime
