Who says you have to look your age? With incredible scientific advances in skincare, women in their 40s can look as vibrant as they did in their younger years. Let’s take a look at some common skincare concerns and how to get your best beautiful skin — no drastic procedures required.
Dry Skin at 40s
As we age, oestrogen production slow down and your skin cells produce less sebum (or oil); essential to keeping skin looking and feeling soft and supple. Your surface skin cell renewal process also slows down a bit, resulting in a duller, less radiant complexion.
6 WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN FOR OVER 40
Cleanse Away Impurities. Select a cleanser that exfoliates the skin’s surface. By exfoliating, you are buffing away dead skin cells and helping to unblock pores.
Moisturizing is Key. Apply a moisturiser with a broad spectrum SPF of at least 15 in the morning.
Up the Ante with A Serum. Take your moisturization or spot treatment to the next level with a serum. Using it twice a day — in the morning before your moisturiser and in the evening — will drench your skin in moisture. Look for hydrating ingredients like glycerin (which draws moisture from the air into your skin), Niacinamide or Vitamin C.
Nighttime is Your Prime Time. Your skin repairs itself at night which makes nighttime moisturization key. A moisturiser with peptides will diminish the appearance of fine lines.
Bright Eyes. Use an eye cream to reduce the appearance of fine lines and minimize the look of hollowing around the eyes. Dab it on with your ring finger, from the inner corner to the outer corner, tapping lightly to give an instant circulation boost to the area.
Keep up with your anti aging skin care routine and you will have everyone guessing your age.

The laws of gravity tell us that what comes up must also come down. Sadly, the same can be said of your skin. As you get older, skin may begin to lose firmness as a result of a natural loss and deterioration of collagen and elastin — two proteins found in the lower layers of skin that provide the foundation of skin’s tautness and elasticity.
