5 skin products to start using before your 30s


A lot of people only wake up to the fact that their skin is dehydrated, dull and has lost elasticity in their early 30s.

Avoid these skin conditions by introducing beauty products with ingredients like Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and UVA and UVB protection into your skin care regime in your 20s. It won't stop you from ageing of course, but it will boost your overall skin health.

Here is a good list of products to try now:

SkinCeuticals Metacell Renewal B3, R1,799.

This product targets the first signs of photoageing and is already suitable for young skins. This multi-corrective moisturiser contains an impressive cocktail of active ingredients which targets visible concerns associated with the early signs of skin ageing including dullness, discoloration, dryness, fine lines, and loss of natural elasticity. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skins.

NEW Clinique Fresh Pressed™ 7-Day System with Pure Vitamin C trial kit, R455.

Impatient like me? Then try this.

Pow! De-aging for the impatient. Recapture younger-looking skin with the full de-aging power of fresh, potent Vitamin C. Clinique's Fresh Pressed™ Renewing Powder Cleanser with Pure Vitamin C and Clinique Fresh Pressed™ Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C 10%, a simple way to reinvigorate your de-aging skin care routine.

Just like your morning fresh-pressed juice or vitamin tablet help you to stay healthy on the inside, this super-potent system was designed as a daily supplement to visibly rejuvenate skin from the outside.

I tried this system and saw a very noticeable difference already after just 3 days. My skin felt soft, fresh-looking and glowing.

Skinderm Intense Nourishing Oil, R420.

Enriched with Vitamin C and E this lovely smelling oil helps to protect the skin from free radicals while simultaneously repairing damaged skin to reveal a brighter complexion.

Great for adding moisture, this product has a built in SPF and contains key ingredients like stabilized hyaluronic acid within NASHA technology for hydration, smoothness and glow.
