Forty is the new 30 darling…….and if you’ve been maintaining your skin in your twenties and thirties you will see how beautiful your skin will be in your 40’s. However at this stage in your life you will notice that you are experiencing some changes in your skin. With hormonal changes you may experience drier skin. With proper care, this stage in life is when we are the most beautiful.
Every morning and evening wash your face with a gentle facial wash. At least once a week you can use a gentle facial exfoliator to slough off dead skin. Use a serum in the daytime that contains vitamins C & E. In the evening use one that contains retinol & vitamin A. One of the most important part of your regime is moisturizing. Use a moisturizer that contains SPF protection so you don’t have to apply separately. Look for those that says UVA & UVB protection with at least SPF 30 protection. For bedtime choose a super moisturizing night cream or a facial oil. Oils such as argan and macula oils are know to be great to maintain the elasticity of the skin. To protect your gentle eye area use an eye cream.
Its important to get plenty of exercise, eat well and stay hydrated. Exercise is not only good for building strength and muscles. It’s known to help benefit the skin the same way it does the bones and muscles. It helps strengthen and in some instances tightened the skin and helps with bettering your complexion.
Your glow outside starts form within. Foods that are hydrating & low processed are excellent for younger looking skin. Food with lots of antioxidants are perfect for your diet. Try eating fruits like blueberries, blackberries and green vegetables. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water per day to remain hydrated.
