The Most Common Skin Problems Women in Their 30s Face


After you reach the age of 25, you’ll start noticing that your skin doesn’t act as it did when you were in your early 20s. More hydration needed, slower cell turnover and various changes appearing on your skin will become more prominent as you reach 30. From rosacea to hyperpigmentation and cystic acne, your 30s may not be so amazing skin-wise, after all. But worry not, because no matter the problem, you’ll certainly find the solution for it.

Hyperpigmentation

Remember how you loved spending summers at the seaside in Greece or suntanning in the countryside when visiting your grandparents? Well, if you’ve spent too much time under the sun, your 30s will let you know you’ve overdone it. Dark spots that pop up out of nowhere and won’t go away that easily are the first sign of hyperpigmentation caused by UV rays. Hormonal changes and certain medications can make these spots even worse, so it’s essential that as soon as you notice them you start using retinoids and improve your skincare routine. They will also promote collagen remodeling and help in exfoliating the skin more effectively too.

Rosacea

Have you noticed that your face suddenly looks flushed and no matter what you do your cheeks stay red? After you reach 30, a chronic inflammatory skin condition called rosacea is likely to occur. From hot beverages or foods through spicy foods to stress, hormonal changes and weather changes, there’s a plethora of factors that will cause redness, blushing and red bumps on your face. It can be the worst inconvenience if you’re visiting a new country, and instead of looking your best while you’re in Dubai, you look like you’ve put on way too much blush on your face. Luckily, you’d be able to turn to some of the renowned skin specialist clinics in Dubai and solve your problem in a blink of an eye. A dermatologist can also prescribe you some of the medications that can help control rosacea effectively.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is another skin condition that can cause plenty of discomforts and wreck your self-esteem. It is a skin condition that causes scaling and swelling, and even patches of thick, red skin with silvery scales. Psoriasis becomes terribly uncomfortable if it causes itching or starts to feel sore. The elbows, knees, and other parts of the legs are usually the body parts that become affected by psoriasis. However, it can also appear on the scalp, lower back, face, palms and soles of the feet. Considering it’s similar to other skin problems, psoriasis can be difficult to diagnose. In some cases, the dermatologist will need a small sample of the skin to look at under a microscope. The treatment will vary, depending on the type of psoriasis, the seriousness of the disease as well as on the size of the patches and the patient’s reaction to certain medications.

Eczema

Atopic dermatitis i.e. eczema is a long-term skin disease that causes almost the same amount of discomfort as psoriasis. Dry and itchy skin, rashes or red dry patches on the face, inside the elbows, behind the knees, on the calves, on the back of the thighs, and on the hands and feet are just some of the symptoms of eczema. Stress and genetics are the two main factors that will cause eczema, so it’s essential that you de-stress as often as possible when you notice new patches coming out. Certain types of food may also be the cause so it would best if you went to see your dermatologists and did all the tests that may tell you what your eczema triggers are. Suntanning the parts of the body covered in eczema is one of the great ways to deal with this skin condition, so the next time you go on a beach vacation in Australia or Hawaii, don't forget to soak up the sun as much as possible.
Just because you've reached your 30s, it doesn't mean your skin problems will diminish. Hyperpigmentation, psoriasis, eczema and rosacea are just some of the skin conditions that many women in their 30s face, so be prepared.
