Overview

American culture values a youthful appearance, and most women begin to notice signs of fine lines and wrinkles in their 30s. For this reason, women often become concerned with using anti-aging skincare products in their 30s as well, in the hope of staving off further wrinkles and looking young for as long as possible. Choosing the right products may help you keep your skin looking supple and youthful.

Retinoids

Retinoids are derived from vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin. Many anti-aging skin care products contain retinoids, also known as retinol. Retinol may help stimulate your skin to produce more collagen, which can smooth out skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. It also can increase cell turnover to help with skin's radiance.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid can stimulate skin to produce more collagen. Hyaluronic acid can also plump up the skin, making it look younger by filling in fine lines. According to Dr. Dennis Gross, hyaluronic acid draws water back into the skin. A lack of moisture can increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which may be resolved by using creams containing hyaluronic acid.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that may have anti-aging effects for skin. Vitamin C may neutralize the free radicals that contribute to aging. Vitamin C creams may also reduce fine lines, increase collagen production, even out skin tone and promote healing.

Sunscreen

Preventing sun damage is one of the most important anti-aging steps you can take. Using sunscreen daily in your 30s is a good way to prevent wrinkles later in life. Use a sunscreen formulated specifically for facial skin, with a high SPF. Ultraviolet rays can still cause damage even on cloudy days, so use sunscreen every day, regardless of weather.
