As we age and evolve, our skin ages and evolves with us. It’s a beautiful process, and one of great privilege.
And as we age, everything takes a shift. We show up differently, we dress differently, our values and boundaries become refined, among many other beautiful things the aging process so generously grants us.
And just like all else, our Skin Care Routine should also transition with the stage of life we’re in, honoring the phase our skin is in. It should expand with us.
Our #1 Skin Care Tip for EVERY Age
At the Face Yoga Method, Skin Care and mindset go hand in hand. We cannot talk about proper Skin Care, without first addressing the right mindset when it comes to aging, and embracing your age.
Whether you’re in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s or beyond, the first step to a proper Skin Care Routine is a proper mindset.
We know that witnessing your skin change over the years can at first be daunting, but we’re here to reassure you that it doesn’t have to be. It can be one of great privilege and ease.
Skin Care Routine In Your 30’s
It’s usually in our 30’s that small signs of aging appear at our door. Faint lines on our face may begin to show, we may start to notice less elasticity in our skin, it’s as if our face has fallen down overnight, and for many this is a scary occurrence.
It's the first transition into the visible side of aging — but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing! Aging is just what we’re taught it is. And unfortunately for too long, we’ve been told that aging is a bad thing so our narrative around it is one that couldn’t be farther from the truth. What if instead, we embraced the seasons of womanhood that aging so eloquently provides?
Your 30’s are the first opportunity to shape this mindset and blend it with what you choose to do, for yourself and for your skin.
At the Face Yoga Method we know that it’s never too late to focus on prevention. And your 30’s are a great opportunity to re-evaluate your daily habits, and craft habits and unshakable practices that will support you and your skin.
Before we get to the skin care tips, we always advise pairing a Face Yoga Method Routine to ANY Skin Care regimen as it will naturally tone and shape your muscles, diminish lines and wrinkles, and protect your skin while amplifying the effects of ANY product!
Tip #1 For Skin Care In Your 30’s — Hot Water
While most don’t often think of hydration or nutrition as a skin care routine, we firmly believe that it should be at the top of every regimen. No skin care product will give your skin proper hydration if your body and cells are lacking.
Staying hydrated is your simplest tip to glowing skin. And to take it a step further, we highly recommend creating a routine around drinking a cup of hot water first thing in the morning. Hot water is great for eliminating toxins, which in turn will plump your skin and leave it with a radiant glow. This is a skin care routine for any age, but your 30’s are a great time to implement this tip into a daily habit.
Tip #2 For Skin Care In Your 30’s — Sunscreen
Even though sunscreen should be worn for all ages, oftentimes we neglect this important regimen as teenagers and in our early 20’s. Sunscreen however is a great tool for preventing skin damage that will show later on in life. Sunscreen should be your non negotiable when it comes to protecting your skin now, so that you have less to worry about later.
Tip #3 For Skin Care In Your 30’s — Collagen & Vitamin C
As we enter our 30s, our natural collagen production starts to slowly decrease and continues to decline as we age. Collagen is fundamental to our skin’s strength and elasticity. The less collagen our skin produces, the more sagging and wrinkles appear. This is why boosting your collagen production naturally will help prevent skin from sagging and maintain your youthful appearance. Our most loved tool for natural collagen production is our Derma Roller.
It is also in our 30’s that our body’s natural ability to renew damaged skin cells diminishes. To give your skin a little extra boost, include ingredients such as Vitamin C that will aid your skin in it’s natural regeneration process. Vitamin C Concentrate pairs well with the Derma Roller, allowing the Vitamin C to penetrate deeper into the skin and helping repair damage. This is one power duo!

The BEST Tip For Skin Care In Your 50’s & Beyond — Face Yoga!
While a Face Yoga Routine is advisable for all ages as a natural preventative practice, by the time we’re in our 50’s, the loss of collagen and elastin in our skin is best met with a Face Yoga Practice. Quality Products are great and can do wonders for our skin, but Face Yoga will tone and shape the muscles beneath the skin’s surface, which no product on the market can ever do.
If you read other articles on suggestions for feeling and looking your best in your 50’s, many of them advise cosmetic procedures. At the Face Yoga Method we firmly stand behind a 100% natural alternative.

Listening To Your Skin
While these are all great tips to help you both, maintain and regain the glow of the decade before, the best tip of all is to always listen to YOUR skin.
Only you can know what your skin truly craves and needs, and only you can give it that. Don’t overthink this part. Simply ask yourself, what does my skin feel like? What does it need today? What is it missing? What could I do to boost its glow?
And then do that!
Once you understand how to communicate and work WITH your skin, the benefits are bountiful.
