Importance of Antioxidant Skincare after 30s ft. *New Launch* Innisfree Advanced Green Tea Range

While our teenage years are dealt with issues of acne and excess tanning, 20s is the best time our skin goes through, partly because we become conscious ourselves and partly because it is the transition period to transform to a woman from the sweet little girl.  But once we hit 30s the issues with our skin again starts to surface. Now why is that so? Let us discuss that.


Causes of Skin Issues at 30s

Once we hit our 30s we go through a lot of hormonal changes. This may affect directly to our skin, causing issues like adult acne, eczema or rosacea. So what exactly happens? Estrogen is the hormone that is responsible for the skin's luminosity and elasticity. It promotes collagen which is the building block of our skin and during our 20s our estrogen level is the highest , resulting in the best phase for our skin. But with increasing age the level of Estrogen decreases and therefore the collagen promotion lowers resulting in signs of ageing mostly with loss of elasticity, fine lines and other skin related issues that are mentioned. The other form of threat are external causes like excessive exposure to sunlight, pollution etc. Personally my skin underwent a lot of changes, and actually once a oily to combination skin turned absolutely dry and dull.

Antioxidants to the Rescue


Antioxidants that are said to prevent damage caused by free radicals are the best source to protect our skin. We can include a substantial part of antioxidant in our food as well as through a good skin care regime that will keep our skin hydrated and protected.

The Garter Toss

In the modern era, the tossing of the garter is a fun and flirtatious event that takes place at the wedding reception. In the past, however, newly married couples were required to show “proof” that they consummated their marriage. Family and friends of the groom would take the garter off of the bride to show everyone that the deed had indeed been done. Eventually, this led to the groom throwing the garter to these “witnesses, ” thus ending the more barbaric method of them removing it themselves.

The Wedding Veil

Veils today are a beautiful and stylish vintage wedding accessory. Historically, the wedding veil was mostly symbolic. The veil was a way to symbolize the purity and untouched nature of a virgin bride. Similarly, superstitious religions believed that a veil being worn over a bride’s face shielded her from evil spirits that could be hanging around on the wedding day.
