When you are in your 40s, your skin undergoes a lot of changes. Mainly your cell turnover almost reduces to half, and this is why you need to start caring for your skin a little differently than you are used to. This is when your fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing become more prominent, requiring you to be more mindful about what you put on your skin.
Below is a list of things you to need to add to your skincare regimen as soon you hit 40.
As you age, your skin’s sensitivity to the sun increases as well. As a result, it becomes quite imperative that you always wear SPF, and when in the sun for prolonged periods, wear a hat and don shades as well. You can always opt for the ‘Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Lotion’ that blocks up to 97% of the harmful UV rays of the sun so as to keep your skin looking youthful.
During the day, it is also extremely important to prevent any damage to the skin caused by those free radicals that your sunscreen can’t really block. Use an antioxidant rich cream, such as the ‘Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Crème’, which replenishes and moisturises your skin, making it fairer and giving it an instant glow.
It is quite important to choose a night cream that has anti-ageing benefits. Such creams help boost skin cells while also delaying the skin’s ageing process. The ‘Pond’s Gold Radiance Youthful Night Cream’ is infused with precious real gold, as well as the vitamins A and B3, providing your skin with amazing anti-ageing benefits.
Exfoliating your skin helps remove dead skin cells and brings newer ones to the forefront, thereby causing your skin to look youthful and radiant. The ‘Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant’ provides your skin with a non-abrasive exfoliation treatment that stimulates cell renewal with the help of natural fruit enzymes by removing dead skin cells in order to improve skin texture.
When it comes to eye creams, especially if you’re in your 40s, reach for one that targets specific ageing issues such as fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. Try the ‘Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum’ which maximises night-time skin repair so as to help minimise fine lines and increase your skin’s luminosity.
