    How you look and feel in your 30s

      |  Apr 26, 2023

    Entering a new decade of life can conjure up a rollercoaster of emotions: excitement, panic, surprise, optimism, and so much more. However you may be feeling, it’s helpful to know what changes you might experience in your 30s — from your skin to your mood. We’ve laid out common things to look out for that will help you better understand your body and age well.

    How you look


    Once you enter your 30s, your skin’s cell repair system starts to move at a slower pace. Paired with sun damage from your 20s, early signs of aging will start to appear. You might notice fine lines and a loss of volume in cheeks, which can make under-eye shadows more visible.

    To address these, some people look to microneedling, a procedure used to take advantage of the body’s natural healing response. During the process, your clinician uses thin, sterilized needles to prick the skin to encourage collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, reduce scarring and even skin tone.

    There are also products like face creams that can visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and radiance, and improve elasticity and firmness to help you look and feel your best.


    If you notice thinning hair in your 30s, it’s not just you. Around this time, hair follicles weaken and start producing fewer strands. Each hair follicle typically holds a bundle of strands, but over the years, those bundles let go of more hair and cause an overall thinner appearance.

    If hair thinning or loss is a concern, supplements like Nutrafol are clinically proven to improve hair growth, thickness, and strength. And for thicker, darker, longer eyelashes, topical eyelash growth treatments can help promote growth and volume when applied consistently.

    How you feel

    Mental clarity

    Entering your 30s can also mean some changes to your memory. When you reach your 30s, the number of neurons in your brain starts to decrease and form fewer connections. This might lead to difficulty with memorization. Luckily, some treatments are available that aim to boost coenzymes that play a key role in mental clarity and concentration.

    You can also eat foods rich in or take supplements that contain Omega-3 fatty acids, which support cognitive health, skin & hair health, circulation and mood.


    You might think of testosterone as a male sex hormone, but it’s actually the most abundant hormone in the female body. In your 30s testosterone begins to steadily drop, which can lead to a variety of symptoms, including mood swings, anxiety, and low libido.

    To address testosterone deficiency, you can explore options like topical creams that help boost your energy, focus, metabolism, and mood, and oral supplements that contain DHEA, which promotes optimal hormone balance.

    What you might not notice


    Muscle mass, strength, and function begins to decline around this time as a natural part of the aging process. Beginning at age 30, you’ll start to lose as much as 3-5% of muscle per decade. Supplementing your diet with creatine can help support your muscle health and strength, and lean body mass.


    When your hormones begin to shift in your 30s, it can affect your metabolism, appetite, and ultimately, belly fat. The thyroid gland is responsible for producing hormones that control how your body turns food into energy. If your thyroid becomes less active around this time, this can lead to weight gain.

    Thyroid hormone therapy can help improve your energy levels and metabolism. You can also support a healthier, more balanced gut by taking a daily probiotic.
