Looking after your skin in your 40’s
It can be during your 40s that you notice changes in your skin and this can prompt people to get more serious about their skincare. Don’t panic – if you’ve not had much of a skincare regime to date it’s not too late to start.
What you might notice
You may notice that you lose some skin tone in your 40s. Your skin may look looser and you may also have a more uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation due to sun damage. Your skin may also be less oily and feel drier.
Key skincare elements for this decade: Vitamin C and Collagen
The oil glands in your skin are less productive and your layers of skin are thinner so your skin will feel drier. Exfoliating a couple of times a week will help your skin feel less dry. You will also need to step up your moisturiser game and look for moisturisers with more nourishing ingredients such as collagen to plump up your cells and make your skin look smoother and firmer.
Best product for this decade: Serum
If you would like help with the signs of ages then consider adding an anti-aging serum to your daily routine. Those containing vitamin C and antioxidants will help protect your skin and can rejuvenate your complexion.
Top tips for your 40s
If dry skin is a problem, switch to a richer moisturiser and choose a non-drying toner. Consider stepping up your skincare regime – we would be delighted to talk to you about the many treatments available in the salon.
