A Guide for Women over 40 

40 is the new 30 and women around the world are looking for ways to keep their skin glowing youthful and vibrant. What if you’ve never put a focus on your skincare before turning 40? Can you really help to reverse the aging process? We think so and here are some of our best tips to help you get incredible skin with just a few daily activities.

 

Hydrate

We always associate youthful skin with looking smooth and supple. When we start to age, the skin loses its ability to retain water. That’s why it is important to get your 8 glasses of water each day. But it's not just water, our skin naturally has hyaluronic acid, a molecule in our skin that holds 1000x its weight in water. Once we reach our 40’s, it starts to disappear and this is what makes our skin look dehydrated. When our skin gets dehydrated, it becomes dull and tired.

 

Recommendations: Drink your water and use Hyaluronic Acid as part of your daily routine.

Prevent Sagging Skin

As we move from our 30’s into our 40’s the collagen in our skin starts to diminish. Collagen is a protein that keeps our skin looking young and supple looking. When we start to lose collagen, it can cause our face to start sagging in many places including your neck and jowls.

 

Recommendations: Take a collagen supplement. The good news is you can drink your collagen or take it in pill form now. Add it to your daily routine each day.

 

Dark (Age) Spots

Pigmentation on your skin from skin exposure and hormones can create age spots on your face, hands and neck as we age. It can be easy to cover them up with makeup but if you are looking to lighten them completely, you want to use a great Vitamin C serum.

 

Recommendations: This can apply for the entire article but when you are going to be exposed to the sun for longer periods of time, use a hat, find some shade and a great sunscreen.

 

If you already have age spots, use a Vitamin C serum on those spots. A great serum can help to lighten the appearance of age spots. Use it as part of your routine before bed.

Use a Moisturizer with Sunscreen

The sun in small doses is wonderful. Exposure to ultraviolet B radiation in the sun can help our bodies to produce Vitamin D which plays a big role in bone health. Too much sun exposure can actually damage the cells in our skin which can burn skin and age us prematurely.

Recommendations: Always cover up when in the sun for long periods. A wide brimmed hat and sunglasses are really fun for the summer but also help to keep you out of the sun.

Wear sunscreen each day at 30 SPF. There are many great products out there that feel light on your skin. Find one that works best for you. Apply to your face and don’t forget your neck.

In conclusion, aging doesn’t have to be something we are afraid of or despise. Even if you are just starting to find a great routine, use these simple and easy tips to apply to your daily routine. To keep yourself beautiful, remember that age is just a number.
