It’s not all in your head: Skin really does get duller around your thirtieth, when skin cells get as sluggish as you are after a night of tequila shots. “Dead cells sit around longer and rob skin of luminosity,” says Howard Sobel, a dermatologist in New York City. To get rid of them, use a glycolic acid peel once or twice a week before bed, and then moisturize to prevent irritation. “Glycolic acid is one of the most effective exfoliators because it penetrates more deeply than other acids,” says Fredric Brandt, a dermatologist in New York City and Miami.

MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME
DON’T GET SPOTTED
AND SPEAKING OF SUNSCREEN…
AMP UP YOUR EYE CREAM
Not to harp on the whole “this is the time to prevent wrinkles” thing, but indulge us. Because if you start building up collagen now, you really can prevent lines later on. That’s why dermatologists suggest wearing a night cream with retinol once or twice a week (we like Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer andRoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Restoring Night Cream). Use it on your chest, too.
