The Best Skin Care Routine for Your 30s

The best skincare regimen for your 30s is easy to find. You just need to know your Baumann Skin Type and we will guide you to the best skincare products and best brands. Our dermatologists test skin care product independently from the brands and help you build the perfect skin care regimen for your 30s.


In your 30s, your skin care routine should target any barriers to skin health that are keeping your skin from being as beautiful and healthy as possible. The best way to identify your barriers to skin health is  to find out your Baumann Skin Type. The more I know about your skin, the better advice I can give you as a dermatologist.



Here is some general advice about the best skincare routine for the 30s, but you need to know if you have one of the issues below before an optimal skincare routine for your early, mid or late 30s can be recommended.


Your Skincare Regimen Should Target Common Skin Conditions in Your 30s

In your third decade of life, it is common to have these skin conditions: acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and melasma.  Your skincare routine should treat all of your skin problems- not just one of them. Two or more of these skin problems can occur at the same time.  For example, you may have acne that leaves a dark spot when the pimple heals. For example you may have  inflamed skin and melasma, In that case it would be important that the skin lightening ingredients in your routine do not worsen your skin’s inflammation. This is why you need to know  your Baumann Skin Type.

Fine lines and wrinkles


Best Natural Skincare Routine in Your 30s

If you prefer organic, natural and vegan skincare in your skincare regimen, that is fine.  There are good products out there.  Just make sure that they have the best ingredients for your Baumann Skin type.  Ingredients that do not come in a natural organic version are retinoids. Don’t waste money on natural or plant-based products that claim to have Vitamin A, carotenoids, carrot extract and other forms of Vitamin. Only these forms of retinoids are effective.


What Do Most 30-Year-Olds Do Wrong With Skin Care?

Most 30-years-olds combine expensive skin care products in their skin care routine that inactivate each other.  This means you are wasting time and money. First of all- you might not need to spend a lot of money on skin care.  Secondly- you might not need that product you are buying. Thirdly, your cleanser or moisturizer or other products in the skin care regimen may be affecting the efficacy of that expensive antiaging serum you bought. Our regimen builder helps you choose each step of your regimen so that the products work together- even if they are from different brands.

Make sure you are not making any of these skincare mistakes:

Simple Skincare Routine for 30s

Your skin care routine will be simple if you do not have very many barriers to skin health. You can get away with a good cleanser, sunscreen and retinoid in some cases.  However, you will need more products if you have more underlying skin conditions to treat.

This is such an important topic that I have written a separate blog about antiaging skincare in your 30s.  ADD LINK Click here to learn more about the causes of skin aging and click here to find antiaging skincare routines.

Best sunscreen for your 30s

I cannot stress this enough: Use a sunscreen- EVERYDAY!  Sunscreen is proven to slow skin aging and even skin tone. Sunscreen protects your skin from developing inflammation from ultraviolet radiation damage and other forms of light. If you are in your 30s and have not found a sunscreen you want to use every day- then I bet you are not shopping by your Baumann Skin Type.  Most skin types like tinted sunscreens to protect your skin from blue light emitted from your phone. (Yes - your phone! Yikes!)

Best Facial Cleanser for your 30s

The second most important product that 30 years olds should carefully choose is a facial cleanser. The type of cleanser depends upon your skin concerns.  For example, if you have facial redness and sensitive skin, consider an anti-inflammatory cleanser such as the face washes recommended by dermatologists for rosacea. Preventing inflammation at an early age will help reduce overall skin damage and keep your skin tone even. Using the wrong skin cleanser can lead to skin dehydration, inflammation, pigmentation and skin aging.

 Best Face Cream and Night Cream for 30-Year-Olds

The best face cream for your 30 something skin will have ingredients that target your barriers to skin health. Creams are better for dry skin, serums are better for oily skin. Step 3 of your morning regimen usually has ingredients that target your skin issues, while step 4 has a moisturizer that makes step 3 work better.  You should splurge on the step 3 product and save on the step 4 moisturizer. In most cases step 3 and 4 of the am and pm regimen can be the same- but again- it depends upon your Baumann Skin Type. If you have dry skin, you need a barrier repair moisturizer.
