How to have beautiful skin after 40? Many of us ask ourselves this question, looking for the ideal skincare. However, skin aging, if it is of course caused by the years, and partly by our genes, is above all due to our (bad) habits. So, what reflexes to adopt to preserve the beauty of our skin, and what active ingredients can support our efforts?

The 40-year-old facial care routine

Whether you are 20, 30, or 40 years old, to have healthy skin, certain steps remain essential:

The first step is to maintain a good rhythm of cleansing (and make-up removal if necessary), morning and evening.

The second gesture is to exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to maintain its cellular rhythm while adapting the type of scrub to the sensitivity and fineness of the skin.

Finally, hydration is the keystone of beautiful skin. Indeed, the best way to slow down the appearance of the signs of aging is to apply a moisturizer to the face, again morning and evening.

That said, what care should a 40-year-old woman or man adopt? After the quarantine, the skin of the face experiences undeniable changes: it loses its tone, becomes dehydrated, dries out, and becomes sensitized. These are the effects of skin aging, which can itself be accelerated by certain so-called “behavioral” aging factors: urban stress, overexposure to UV rays, a diet low in antioxidants, etc.

How to take care of your skin at forty?

Over time, the skin faces a decrease in the production of lipids, that is to say, fat. On the surface, the protective film is of lower quality, favoring the penetration of pollutants and allergens into the skin and the evaporation of water. When the skin gets dehydrated and dry, you can use goat milk products such as goat milk soap.

To maintain its vitality, the skin, therefore, needs a boost. Especially if you live in an urban environment and your skin suffers the harmful effects of oxidative stress every day (pollution, UV rays, cigarette smoke, free radicals).

Which action should be favored to fight against these free radicals? Resveratrol, an antioxidant booster from the vine, which aims to protect your skin from daily aggressions and prevent premature aging.

What to do if your complexion becomes less radiant?

The epidermis is a tissue that renews itself continuously. Usually, it takes an average of 28 days. But over time, this phenomenon of regeneration slows down and can sometimes take 40 to 50 days. As a result, the epidermis is less radiant, less uniform and the skin becomes dull.

In addition, melanocytes, the cells that produce melanin, may produce their skin pigments less uniformly. Brown spots may appear on the skin, more or less visible depending on the complexion, especially if exposure to the sun is excessive.

Do you want to help your skin regenerate?

AHA citric acid is an active ingredient that promotes the elimination of dead cells and stimulates skin renewal.

How to firm your skin after 40?

Your skin loses its elasticity and is marked by a few wrinkles? This is due to the decreased production of hyaluronic acid and elastin and collagen fibers. In addition, expression lines around the eyes and lips are likely to appear, especially following repeated exposure to cigarette smoke or the sun.

How to find your way between all the anti-wrinkle active ingredients? Follow the leader:

Hyaluronic acid is an active ingredient known worldwide and recognized for plumping in depth and reducing wrinkles already present (nasolabial folds, the valley of tears, etc.), as well as fine lines caused by dehydration.

Peptide-4 helps the skin rebuild its own collagen, a protein essential for its firmness and density. This is exactly what you need to smooth out your expression lines on the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth.

 

Never forget just because your skin changes with age doesn’t mean you aren’t as beautiful or beautiful anymore!
