Your skin’s needs and concerns will change as you age: In your teens you were worried about break outs, in your 20s you may have tried to control excess shine and in your 30s you might have been more focused on addressing fine lines and wrinkles. Now that you are in your 40s, your skin aging concerns may have shifted once again and now your focus is more centered around addressing sagging skin and overall skin dullness. Your skin will lose its natural, youthful volume and glow as you age. Additionally, your skin may begin to produce less natural oils, contributing to the look of dull skin. Address the dullness and sagging skin by looking to skin care products formulated to improve their appearance. Here, four skin care products for women in their 40s:
Skin care at 40 product #1: Try switching to a nourishing cream cleanser.
Foaming and gel-based cleansers were most likely better suited for your younger years when your skin produced more oils. If you are experiencing more dryness now than you used to, you may want to consider trying a cream cleanser like RevitaLift® Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser instead. Rich, creamy formulas can be more nourishing to dry skin as foaming or gel-based cleansers can strip the skin of the natural oils it has left. When skin is dry, it can contribute to the look of dullness, so look for ways that will help your skin maintain its natural moisture after cleansing.
Skin care at 40 product #2: Look for a glycolic acid exfoliant.
Glycolic acid helps dissolve away dead skin cells that can build up on your skin’s surface. Once this buildup is removed, dull skin can appear more radiant, because newer cells are revealed. Regular exfoliation can also help slough away dead skin cells, so when this skin care step utilizes glycolic acid your complexion can appear even more bright and fresh. Try skin care products designed to exfoliate the skin with glycolic acid like RevitaLift® Bright Reveal Bright Peel Pads. This will help you achieve more radiant skin and reduce wrinkles.
Skin care at 40 product #3: Introduce a skin volumizing serum.
Help address sagging skin by looking for skin care products formulated with hyaluronic acid like RevitaLift® Daily Volumizing Concentrated Serum, which helps boost your skin’s moisture retention so that sagging skin appears more plump. Layering a moisturizing serum under your day or night cream will help give sagging skin a much-needed boost of hydration.
Skin care at 40 product #4: Consider using a firming face and neck cream.
Pay attention to other areas of your skin – and try to not only focus on your face. Sagging skin can develop in other areas too, like your neck and chest, so look for moisturizing skin care products that can also help address those areas.
Try to incorporate skin care products into your skin care routine that are going to better address sagging skin and dullness, two skin aging concerns that are common to experience in your 40s.
