The Perfect Skincare Regimen To Follow In Your 40s
40 years is a wonderful age, but from that moment on women have to pay more attention to facial skincare: it loses elasticity, fades, fine wrinkles appear, signs of fading appear. For smooth, fresh, and firm skin after 40, you need to make a little effort and choose the right care.
Moisturizing inside and out
With age, the derm becomes dry, because the cells of the epidermis are no longer able to retain enough moisture. Many women over 40 years old experience a feeling of tightness in the skin. That’s when you need good skincare products. To keep the skin hydrated, cosmetologists recommend drinking more water (at least 1.5 liters per day) and including foods rich in omega-3 acids (fatty fish, nuts, olive oil) in the daily diet. They have anti-inflammatory properties, nourish cells from the inside, and prevent the formation of wrinkles and flaking of the skin.
You also need to moisturize the skin outside – choose a good day and night creams.
Without high-quality cleansing of the skin, further care does not make sense. To remove decorative cosmetics, use special makeup remover. Hydrophilic oil with vitamin complex A, E, F effectively removes waterproof makeup, cleanses the derm from impurities, while ensuring the prevention of skin aging.
After removing make-up, you must additionally wash to wash off the remnants of sebum, cosmetics, and cleanser. Use delicate products that are gentle but effective. The cotton oil wash cream easily cleanses and moisturizes the skin, leaving a feeling of freshness and smoothness.
This is the final step in cleansing the skin and it should not be ignored. Toning agents normalize the pH balance of the derm, tighten pores, even out skin tone, prepare the derm for further care, and enhance the effect of the active substances of other cosmetic products.
Pay attention to toners for mature skin. Thus, the rejuvenating toner with niacinamide perfectly moisturizes and evens out the skin, eliminates traces of fatigue, increases elasticity, stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin, strengthens capillaries, normalizes the functioning of the sebaceous glands, has an anti-inflammatory effect, and reduces the manifestation of pigmentation. Regular use of the toner gives the skin a matte finish and visibly refreshes the derma, restoring its youth and radiance.
Lack of sleep immediately affects your appearance. After all, it is at night that cells recover most actively, replenishing their energy supply. It is not for nothing that cosmetologists call the period between 23:00 and 02:00 “golden hours”: this time is the peak of the regeneration cycle. So in the name of preserving youth, go to bed no later than 11 pm and be sure to use a product that optimizes skin regeneration.
Start doing gymnastics for the face
Now face fitness is very popular – exercises for the face. Set aside just 5 minutes a day in the morning or evening for some effective exercise, and within 3-4 weeks you will notice amazing results. Face fitness video tutorials can be found online. To make the skin look fresh in the morning, you can do fitness for the face with an ice cube.
Avoid the sun
Walking in the sun in the summer is so nice! But it’s better not to abuse it. Ultraviolet rays destroy collagen and elastin: they accelerate skin aging. In addition, the sun can cause age spots to appear. As a general rule of thumb, when going on vacation, remember to apply sunscreen with a factor of 50 as often as possible, and try to stay in the shade during the hottest time from noon to four.
