The best face cream for 30 somethings

Updated November 21, 2016

When you are in your 30s, you need a face cream that will prevent wrinkles and age spots. You have less problems with acne and need a face cream that will moisturise and keep your dewy, youthful appearance going all the way through your 30s. There are several excellent face creams on the market today, but when shopping you'll want to pick one that contains several important ingredients.


Look for a face cream that will firm your skin and prevent wrinkles from developing. Firming creams contain keratin which will help maintain your skin's elasticity and firmness. Most firming creams are night creams that you apply before you go to bed so that they can work for 8 to 10 hours firming the elastin in your skin. A firming cream will get rid of fine lines and wrinkles.


A face cream should contain moisturisers that will plump up the collagen under your skin. In your 30s you will start noticing your skin getting slightly dryer than it was in your 20s. You will want to take extra care to use a face cream in the morning after washing your face and at night before you go to bed. The moisturiser in the face cream will help skin to stay plump and healthy-looking, and not dry out.


This is a must in any face cream. Look for an SPF of 15 (or higher) to protect your face from the sun's rays. Nothing causes rapid ageing quicker than hours spent in the sun without adequate protection. Premature ageing of the skin happens when it is exposed to the sun's rays; it causes fine wrinkles and brown age spots to form on your face. If you want a sun-kissed glow on your face, use a powder bronzer, but take steps now in your 30s to protect your face from the sun; you will be happy you did later on.

Tea extracts

Face creams that contain green, black or oolong teas are soothing to the skin. If you have sensitive skin, these extracts will keep your face from getting inflamed and red from washing and exposure. They have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that will keep skin looking supple and smooth. Green tea extracts are the ones found most often in facial creams for women in their 30s.
