A lot of things change in your 30s: You leave behind bad relationships for healthy ones, you have a clearer idea of where your life should be headed, and most importantly, you start feeling more at home in your own skin.

Indeed, turning 30 causes a change in how you see the world—including how you perceive beauty. Here are five beauty truths that change when you reach this milestone:

1. You embrace your flaws

Got freckles? You have learned to own it. At 30, you realize that the things that make you look different are the things that make you beautiful. You may never look like a cover model, but you don’t need to—you’re perfect just the way you are.

2. Pampering becomes a need, not just a luxury!

You’ve climbed the rungs at your company, you’re looking after your family, and you may even have started a little side business. There’s a lot on your plate and you now know that a trip to the spa is no longer just about vanity, it’s about caring for (and rewarding!) yourself so you can always give your best.

3. You’re no longer afraid to ask questions

Your whole life, you’ve been seeking the secret to beauty on your own. Not anymore! At 30, you realize that flat-out asking someone where they got that excellent haircut is no longer a beauty taboo. In fact, don’t be surprised if you get the address, stylist’s name and price range of services in a moment’s notice. After all, women have to look out for one another, right?

4. Sleep is Beauty

A lot of 20-year-olds think that sleep if for the weak. Why snooze when you can party, right? Well, you’ve done it and it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. These days, you know that sleeping is the kindest thing you can do for your body—and perhaps the most underrated beauty tip ever. You finally understand that you can’t expect glowing skin on three hours of sleep.

5. You realize it's not all about the face

Speaking of your skin, you’ve also learned to love all of it, not just your face’s. You exude this inner confidence that you didn’t have when you were still a struggling 20-year old, and you’ve learned to work with what you have, even the parts that you used to be insecure with.

You’ve also gained more knowledge about beauty, knowing that it is something you should never compromise on. You don’t fall for product pitches that overpromise anymore, and you stick to those that you have proven work for you.

When it comes to whitening, for example, you know that there are products that are simply marketing geniuses. You’ve come to realize that it is the ingredients that are the true star of the show. Take Kojic Acid, for example, which you can find in Kojiesan’s Skin Lightening Range. The line, which is comprised of a soap, body lotion, toner, and face cream, provides visible, honest results that real women will appreciate.

Kojiesan's skin range is the first to use Kojic Acid which helps give fairer skin by taking care of freckles, sun spots, and other signs of sun damage. On top of it, these products come at a very friendly price, a good proof that beauty doesn't always require a high price tag. 

The Big 3-0 may be a major milestone, but with a positive mindset and the right skin care products, it will be your most beautiful decade yet.
