If you are a woman over thirty, or even close to thirty, now is a great time to start taking your skin seriously!  Our 30s are usually the busiest time of our lives.  During our 30s we are usually working, raising kids, or doing both at the same time.  All this busyness tends to cause us to get less sleep, produce more stress hormones, and eat poorly.

Unfortunately, these three things - lack of sleep, stress, and poor diet, can wreak major havoc on our skin.  See my post,  7 Ways To Have 21 Year Old Skin At Any Age, to read more about the negative health effects of stress, lack of sleep, and a bad diet.  Because of this, it is more important than ever to start nurturing your skin and give it everything it needs to stay healthy when you are in your 30s.  Below I have compiled a list of five skincare products that I believe are essential for any woman who is thirty and over.




We all want to turn the clocks backward when it comes to the skin on our faces, and now some seriously cool beauty products have made it possible for us to do just that!  Here's my list of my favorite, top five, must-have skincare products for women over thirty.

1. Differin Gel 0.1% Prescription Strength


This stuff is pretty much a miracle in a tube if you ask me.  Differin Gel , which is a topical retinoid, used to only be available by prescription, but recently became approved for over-the-counter (OTC) use.  Although Differin Gel is primarily used for acne treatment, I have read that you can also use it as a general anti-aging product.  I can tell you first hand that Differin Geldramatically cleared up my husband's stubborn and severe cheek acne, and also reduced my mild acne and scaring.   You can buy Differin Gel in both a 15G and 45G size.  You can order it easily off of Amazon, or find it in certain stores such as this one:  Differin Gel.

Remember to always read all directions and warnings on the package carefully.  Avoid use if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or nursing.  Also be careful with sun exposure while using.

2.  Lancer Skincare - Polish

The Lancer Method Polish Lancer Skincare

I cannot stress enough how important exfoliation is in your 30s, and really even in your 20s too!  Exfoliation sloughs off dead skin cells, old makeup, dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris from your skin cells.  Exfoliation is also absolutely vital for good makeup application!  Makeup does not sit on the face well when it is layered on top of dead and dirty skin.

This exfoliator, called "Polish", as it is the polish step of a three product kit sold by Lancer Skincare, is the best exfoliator I have ever used.  I first heard about  Lancer's Polish when Influenster sent me a complimentary sample to try out, and I was totally hooked after I started using it.  Polish exfoliates gently but firmly and removes unwanted debris as thoroughly as any cleansing brush would.  I noticed a dramatic difference in both the quality of my skin, as well as the way my makeup looked, once I stared exfoliating my face with this Polish.  My makeup sat perfectly on my skin and didn't seem to flake off and get caught on dry patches anymore.    This is another product that I cannot recommend enough to any more who is thirty or over.

This is also available in Lancer's The Method Kit, which includes a cleanser, the Polish, a moisturizer, and an Eye Contour Cream.  I discuss the Eye Contour Cream which I talk about further down on my list here.


3.  Tria Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser

 Tria Eye Wrinkle Laser Sephora


I am not one to run out and buy the latest skin laser on the market, as these things are often very expensive and can be mediocre at best when it comes to giving results.  This Tria Eye Wrinkle Laser has proved an exception to my rule however.  The Tria Eye Wrinkle Laser does deliver on its promise and both reduces puffiness and wrinkles.  There are a few reviews out there that say it broke on them, but if it breaks under the year warranty they say you can easily exchange it for a new one.

I have really struggled with fine lines around my eye orbits since becoming a mommy, and then again after becoming a blogger, because of how sleep deprived these two jobs can made me.  I am very grateful to have found a skincare product that is finally doing something to erase the damage I did to my skin through lack of sleep.

4.  goPure Retinol Facial Serum 

goPure Retinol Facial Serum Cleopatra's Choice

If you are unable to get prescription strength retinoids, over-the-counter retinol products are the next best thing for your skin.  I have tried a lot of retinol products in my life and this goPure Retinol Facial Serum sold by Cleopatra's Choice is my absolute favorite.  Not only is this product incredibly afforadable, it is also a very highly concentrated, meaning you get a LOT of retinol!  I notice a dramatic difference in my skin quality when i use goPure Retinol Facial Serum on a regular basis.

Cleopatra's Choice offers very low cost shipping and you get 3 FREE samples with every single order.  Cleopatra's Choice frequently offers great promo codes and they accept Paypal in addition to all other major credit cards.  I can also say from experience that their customer service is one of the best I have experienced.


5.  Lancer Eye Contour Lifting Cream With Diamond Powder

This Eye Contour Cream by Lancer is another product that I discovered complimentary of Influenster.  I started noticing a dramatic difference in the fine lines and puffiness around my eyes after a week of using this product.  My makeup also went on much smoother and didn't cream in my eye lines.  I have tried a lot of eye cream, but this is definitely one of the best ones in my opinion.  This is also available in Lancer's The Method Kit, which includes a cleanser, the Polish, a moisturizer, and the Eye Contour Cream.


Every woman should be proud of her age, because with age comes wisdom and so many hard-earned learning experiences, but no woman should ever feel like she has to be defined by her age.  With all the wonderful technologies available these days, skincare products are better than ever and winding back the aging clock has become an easy thing.  All the items on this list would make really great gifts for any special women in your life.  You can view my complete list of gift-guides here: Gift Guides.
