I'm Ashley, and I'm turning 30 this month! While some people dread hitting this milestone, I'm actually excited to see what the next decade has in store for me. And as a Registered Nurse at Ilios Medical Spa, I'm especially interested in how my skin will change as I enter my thirties.
Here are three things that happen to your skin after the age of 30:
Collagen production slows down: Collagen is a protein that gives your skin its structure and elasticity. Unfortunately, our bodies start producing less collagen as we age, which can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Your skin may become drier: As we get older, our skin produces less oil, which can lead to dryness and a dull, lackluster complexion. This is why it's so important to stay hydrated and use moisturizing skincare products.
Age spots and hyperpigmentation may appear: Sun damage and hormonal changes can cause dark spots and uneven skin tone, which can be frustrating to deal with. Fortunately, there are plenty of treatments and skincare products that can help to fade these pesky spots and even out your skin tone.
While these changes can be a little intimidating, I'm actually excited to embrace my thirties and take care of my skin in new ways. At Ilios Medical Spa, we offer a wide range of treatments and skincare products that are perfect for combatting the signs of aging. From laser skin resurfacing to medical-grade skincare, we've got everything you need to look and feel your best at any age.
So if you're turning 30 this year (or if you've already passed that milestone), don't panic! With a little help from Ilios Medical Spa, you can keep your skin looking youthful and radiant for years to come. Happy birthday to all my fellow thirty-somethings out there - let's make this decade the best one yet!
