This is how you take care of your skin in your 40s
2 min read
Wrinkles, enlarged pores and loss of firmness become more pronounced in your 40s. Hormonal changes and early menopausal symptoms can cause your skin to become less supple and firm. Decreased oestrogen levels also cause your skin to become drier making hydration a key part of any 40-year old’s skin care regime.
Step 1: Purify
Hormonal changes can lead to dull, dry skin and for some, breakouts. Mud masks are ideal for targeting these concerns. The much-loved mud masks from your teenage years have had a makeover. The Skin Republic Pink Clay Mud Sheet Mask has all the benefits of mud without the messy cleanup. Containing purifying pink clay which helps remove dead and dull skin cells helping skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin. This mask also helps brighten and even skin tone, so your complexion is bright and radiant.
Step 2: Eye treatments
Start using an anti-aging eye treatment (if you haven’t already started in your 30s). As we’re getting a tiny bit older, we need to put a little more effort into our skin care regime. Crow’s feet and dark circles have probably also become a bit more noticeable, Skin Republic’s 24K Gold Aquagel Under Eye Patches target the five eye-area ages, fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity and firmness, puffiness, dark circles and dryness.
Step 3: Boost collagen
Collagen is the protein behind pretty much everything holding you up – bones, muscles, skin – keeping us bouncy and supple. In your 40s collagen levels are half of what they were in your 20s so it is important to use skincare products which will boost these levels. Our Collagen Hydrogel Face Mask contains collagen and sea minerals to boost skin health, suppleness and firmness.
