Just like fine wine, we happen to believe that everyone gets better with age. But when it comes to your skin, your 40s could be the decade that signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, become more prevalent. Womp, womp. While a consistent skin care routine (including facial cleanser, moisturizer, and broad-spectrum sunscreen) is key for women of any age, there are certain skin care products you should specifically consider adding to your skin care regimen in your 40s. Ready to get started? Here are our best skin care products to use in your 40s.
As skin matures, it can lose moisture, nutrients, and natural oils, which can result in drier skin. So, when it comes to washing your face, it could be a good idea to stay away from foaming or gel facial cleansers and use a cream facial cleanser instead. The L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser, which is formulated for mature skin, is a perfect option. It gently removes all traces of impurities and makeup without over-drying for softer, smoother, more supple skin. Morning and night, lather the cleanser into wet hands and gently massage it onto your skin before rinsing off and moving on to the rest of your skin care routine.
Typically, serums have formulas with highly concentrated ingredients that help to target specific skin issues, like fine lines and wrinkles or dark spots. So, if you’re in your 40s and have noticed visible signs of aging, a serum may be one product you could benefit from using. The L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum is formulated with hyaluronic acid and helps enhance skin's own moisture-retention for lasting hydration. It also helps reduce wrinkles for visibly plumped, youthful-looking skin. Apply two to three drops after cleansing in the morning and at night.
A good daytime moisturizer can make all the difference in how your complexion looks. In your 40s, try using a moisturizer that’s specifically formulated for mature skin. The L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Honey Day Cream, which is formulated with manuka honey and nurturing oils, is an intense daily moisturizer that helps restore comfort and nourishing moisture to mature, very dry skin. Smooth it gently over clean skin in a circular motion every morning.
Editor’s tip: If you’re using a serum, apply your moisturizer afterward!
When it comes to your skin care routine, how much attention do you pay to your neck and chest? Well, if the answer is you only focus on your face, it’s time to show the skin below your jawline some major TLC. You can apply your regular moisturizer to your neck and chest or you can look for one that’s specifically formulated for these areas, like the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm - Face/Neck/Chest/Hands. This all-over balm absorbs quickly to relieve mature, very dry skin on the face, neck, chest, and hands—even on the go. You can use it morning and night.
Oftentimes, your eyes can be a dead giveaway of your age. And that’s why using an eye cream should be part of your daily skin care routine in your 40s—if not earlier. The L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel can help brighten dark circles, reduce puffy bags, and cushion mature, very dry skin around the eyes. Apply it after cleansing morning and night, then follow up with your serum and moisturizer.
Your skin care routine wouldn’t be complete without a night cream—and we have the perfect one for you to use in your 40s! The L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Honey Night Balm helps hydrate skin immediately to leave skin on the face, neck, and chest firmer, stronger, and more resilient. Just apply it as the last step in your nighttime skin care routine and let it absorb. Enjoy your beauty sleep!
