Follow The CTM Routine
How you have taken care of your skin in your 20s definitely does affect your skin in your 30s. But, if you have never had a skincare routine before, now is as good time as ever to start. Many women don't start a skincare routine in the 30s just because they are 'too late' to start it. We want to stress on this- IT IS NEVER TOO LATE. Be kind on your skin.
We want you to take baby steps here. Start with the CTM(cleanser, toner and moisturiser) routine. This deeply cleanses your skin and keeps it in the optimal shape.
Do Not Rub The Skincare Products
Do you pat or rub the skincare products? If you rub the products into your skin, you need to stop immediately. In your 30s, your skin cells turnover slows down and the rate of collagen production in your skin decreases. This makes your skin lose its elasticity and hence the fine lines and wrinkles.
By rubbing the products into your skin, you are making the situation worse. It stretches your skin and invites wrinkles. So, you need to change the habit of rubbing the skincare products. Instead, gently pat the products into your skin.
