Five Essential Skin Care Habits for Women Over 40
Is 40 really the new 30? Absolutely! You can look your best (and look years younger than you really are…) with a healthy lifestyle and good skin care habits. Here are five essential skin care habits that you can adopt to keep your skin looking its best:
1. It all starts with gentle cleansing.
When you were in your 20’s and 30’s, you could use any soap you wanted. Your young metabolism and hormonal balance kept your skin moist and supple without much help. Now you need to help your skin out a bit more. First, check the ingredients on the soap you use on your face and body. Chemicals like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Tricolsan, Lye, Polyproylene and synthetic dyes can all strip your skin of its natural oils and/or leave you subject to dry, irritated skin. Try a gentle, hydrating face cleanser which combines organic botanical extracts with moisturizing elements to cleanse, while maintaining natural moisture and balanced pH.
2. Exfoliate more often, but more gently.
It’s more important than ever to remove dead skin cells and impurities on a regular basis. Your body is constantly regenerating fresh cells that are working their way to the surface of your skin. You can help the process by exfoliating regularly. However, now is the time to use fewer chemical exfoliants (especially in the mornings) and more physical ones. Reducing potentially drying chemicals and focusing more on mild scrubs can help remove top layers of dead and dull skin without irritation.
3. The Eyes Have it.
They are the first thing people notice about you. The windows to your soul. They can make you look 10 years younger, or 10 years older. Taking care of the skin around your eyes may be the most important habit for a woman over 40. There’s nothing wrong with a few lines to show where the smiles have been, but a gentle and effective eye serum can keep those lines minimized so you look as vibrant and youthful as you feel. Serums are designed for deeper penetration into the dermis, and should be used before moisturizer or makeup in the morning. An effective serum can give astonishingly fast results: tighter, lighter skin; dark circles diminished or gone; the appearance of fine lines and “crow’s feet” reduced or eliminated.
4. Moisturize from the inside out.
As we age, our skin naturally loses lipids (fat) that bind moisture in our skin cells. If you don’t already, learn to love your water. Drinking 8 glasses a day is a great way to keep moisture in your body, and help flush out the toxins your liver and kidneys are continuously removing from your system. Many people find using a phytoceramide supplement also helps keep their skin plumped and hydrated. Ceramides are natural lipid molecules that occur in all cell membranes. Think of them as the caulk between skin cells. They help form a protective barrier to retain moisture in the upper layer of skin. Phyto (plant-based) ceramides are natural supplements that many people find effective to replace natural ceramides in the skin that are lost from harsh environmental factors, drying products and as a natural result of aging. A well formulated supplement can become an essential part of your skin care regimen.
5. Prepare for each morning the night before.
In your 20’s, you could wash your face and go to bed. Now you need a bit more of a nighttime routine. Like the rest of your body, your skin does much of its regeneration and renewal at night. Before bedtime and after a gentle cleansing, use a rich, hydrating anti-aging cream. A night cream is different from your daily moisturizer because it will contain ingredients like retinol or Malic Acid (found in apples and many other fruits) in to increase skin cell turnover (meaning new skin replaces old skin more quickly). Night creams also contain thicker, slow-absorbing moisturizers designed to penetrate over several hours. A quality night renewal cream can help ensure that when you wake up, your skin is already looking and feeling refreshed, youthful and vital.
