5 SKINCARE TIPS FOR YOUR 30s AND BEYOND
HOW TO MASTER SKINCARE IN YOUR 30s, 40s AND 50s
1. Reduce the number of products you are using.
Each additional step in your skincare routine causes small disturbances to your skin and ups the risk of eczema, acne, rosacea, dryness etc.
2. Use an oil-based cleanser that will not dry out skin excessively.
Skin tends to get drier as we age due to hormonal changes and oil cleansers help to maintain moisture levels.
3. Introduce a regular face workout routine.
As we age, our facial muscles become weaker, but a regular facial yoga routine will strengthen them in a few minutes daily.
4. Use cream based cosmetics instead of powder-based.
Skin develops texture as it ages and powder-based cosmetics settle in those grooves making them appear more visible.
5. Use a lightweight facial oil to moisturise your skin before applying makeup.
A well moisturised base is key to making your skin appear dewy and makeup to settle well.
Is there a women who hasn't gone to do her skincare after a long day and just said "screw it" instead and gone straight to bed? With skincare routines so long these days, sometimes it's just easier to skip it all.
That is where the philosophy of Botany Squared started - simplicity is key and less is more. We are busy women with stuff to do and lives to lead outside the bathroom. We've exited our insecure teens and 20s, and just want something that works on our skin with less time needed.
Just a few, effective products we love and that's it. That is why I, the founder of Botany Squared, started this company - to create products that are backed by skin science and allow you to stop the "damage and repair" cycle so many skin care routines subject us to. To get results squared.
We are stripping back the number of products you use and helping you declutter your bathroom in the process.

"For years I have suffered with redness on my face during the menopause. No amount of money spent on oils and creams have helped until my friend recommended Hydroburst. My skin looks and feels so much better"

"My skin loves this oil. It gives my face a smooth and fresh feeling, perfect product for a sensitive skin. It has eased my skincare - just one product on mornings and evenings. Love this oil 🙂 "

"Amazing product 11/10 recommend.
It makes my skin very smooth and is very soothing to my skin. After taking off my make-up, sometimes my skin gets a little sensitive and it sure does calm it down. Definitely recommend!"

Where did Botany Squared start?
I created Botany Squared after years of suffering with dermatologist-prescribed skincare routines which sensitised my skin and only helped for a few weeks until making things worse.
When I finally realised that all the products I was putting on my skin were disrupting my skin microbiome on a daily basis and not allowing my skin to heal itself, I stopped. And gave them up. Things started to improve fast.
I could finally have that no-makeup look that I had been trying to paint on for years, except that now it took 2 steps and about 5 minutes every morning.
This philosophy is the central theme for Botany Squared - when we allow our skin to revert to its natural health, we allow our own beauty to shine and need to rely less on covering up.
I hope that is what you find too.
