Once you reach your 40s, you are definitely seeing some changes on your skin even if you have previously cared for your skin incredibly well. Your goals at this age are to fight against the dry, flaky skin that is typical during these years, to continue to protect your skin daily with sunscreen, to amp up your topical treatments and to find the best cosmetic treatments for you. In particular, be sure to follow these five tips for gorgeous skin as you enter your later years of life.
As you reach your 40s, your skin will probably begin to dry out more as your hormones continue changing. Light, daily exfoliation can get rid of those dry skin cells that are making your skin appear lackluster. Consider using an exfoliating cleanser at night so that you do not have to deal with red skin during the day.
Add a Serum
If you have not yet added a serum to your skincare routine, now is your chance. In particular, look for serums that contain antioxidants, such as vitamin C, which can fight against skin aging and even boost your collagen levels.
Obviously, moisturization is incredibly important during these years of dry skin. Look for a moisturizer that contains lipids that grab onto moisture. Also, be sure to use a separate product around your eyes to get rid of any puffiness or discoloration.
Consider Laser Treatments
If you are ready to go a step beyond these at-home treatments, ask about noninvasive laser treatments that change the tissues beneath the surface of your skin. In particular, fractionated CO2 lasers help to erase wrinkles by building up collagen and elastin.
