Suddenly 30? Here's The Skincare Secrets To Know Now

The expert tips on how to get a head start on great skin

We sat down with Sherril Dalitz, owner of The Brow and Skin Studio, who shared her expert tips on how to get a head start on great skin.

Where does great skin start?

The most common problem is constantly and randomly buying products that don’t suit your skin. Not only is this frustrating, it is also very costly. We try to educate our clients about the importance of ingredients in skin products. Unfortunately, not all ingredients are created equally and it is essential to know the difference. An exact skin analysis is key. We use the OBSERV 520 device, which gives us the information we need to treat skin correctly, effectively and to maximise results.

What are the best products to use before you’re 30?

A great cleanser, serum, hydrator and, of course, sunscreen. 

What is your biggest beauty hack?

This is tried and true, and so obvious: always cleanse twice at night regardless if you’re wearing make-up or not. The difference this makes is amazing.

What is one of the biggest misconceptions about great skin?

That it has to be complicated. It doesn’t, it just needs to be effective, consistent, and tailored to your needs. 

What skincare ingredients should you look out for in your 20s and in your 30s?

Stabilised ingredients such as AHA’s are great for skin resurfacing and increase hydration. Vitamin A helps anti-ageing, fights pigmentation, acne and blemishes. Vitamin C needs to remain stable and is a brightening powerhouse to target pigmentation and increase sun protection, which is essential to skin health. Peptides add extra hydration, calms inflammation and treats Rosacea and blemishes.

What is a simple and effective routine to keep?

Cleanse AM and PM. Vitamin C in the morning, followed by broad spectrum sunscreen and then vitamin A nightly followed by night cream.
