Age is just a number! Why show it on the face
When you enter your late 30s and early 40s, skincare starts to take on a bit more importance, even if it was something you always valued. While some women start to be anxious or worried with the idea of visibly ageing; for others, developing and sticking to a healthy skincare routine in your 40s is more about ageing as elegantly as you possibly can and keeping your body's largest organ, the skin, as healthy as possible.
What Skincare routine should you follow in your 40s
There are many things you can do beginning in your 40s to keep your skin healthy for the rest of your life. Here's what you need to know...
Boost Collagen and Elastin
In your 40s, even as your body's production of elastin and collagen starts to slow, the skin on your face is not likely to look full and plump rather it may look thin and sunken. Collagen and elastin production need to be augmented with peptides as well as antioxidants that help increase collagen production, which gives our skin that supple tone.
Retinols are critical to helping speed up the process once again and brighten the complexion. Due to the extra layers of dead skin cells, we are also less hydrated and losing moisture. Consciously adding thicker hydrating creams and retinol can help keep your skin looking healthy, moist, and refreshed, which is what women of all ages want, after all.
To help keep your skin glowing in your 40s, you need to exfoliate more regularly than you did in your 20s and 30s because skin cell turnover happens slower than in earlier decades.
Exfoliation is required to get rid of whiteheads, blackheads and dead skin cells. Exfoliation stimulates blood circulation and polishes your skin. Exfoliation opens up the pores, and your skin starts breathing more easily by absorbing the goodness of CTM, face pack and masks, night creams.
Take care of your neck.
When you're thinking about how to go about developing your skincare routine in your 40s, don't focus solely on your face at the expense of your neck. Don't overlook your neck. Do put sunscreen on it every day as well as moisturize it. Apply your night time serum, moisturizer, and any other products that you would apply to your face to your neck as well. If you only take care of the skin on your face and ignore neck, your neck will reveal your age. So, don't neglect your neck give it equal attention.
Neck Rejuvenating Treatments are in vogue
Injectable anti-ageing procedures are a fast and expedient way to smooth out those lines on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth without any need for surgery. Thanks to technology advancement, nowadays we have non-surgical procedures available such as a Botox, Dermal fillers, Thread Lift and many more which helps to tighten your skin and giving you youthful facial skin.
At Clinic Dermatech we have the best of technology, which is safe and medically approved. All our procedures and products go through a rigorous process and checking before being used on our clients.
If you want to know how these treatments help, look no further.
Botox treatment is minimally invasive and uses a milder form of botulinum toxin A. It freezes the over-used muscles thus relaxing them. It is a safe, effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It can also be used on the forehead between the eyes as well as the neck.
Dermal fillers help to reduce facial lines and refurbish volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose internal fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more obvious. Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of ageing, or as a value-added part of facial alteration surgery.
A thread lift is a procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible 'lift' in the skin. Instead of removing the client’s loose facial skin, the dermatologist simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. As the skin grows weaker, it is no longer able to support the tissues beneath it adequately, meaning that gravity pulls it downwards and stretches it. Infusing the skin of the face with fresh collagen when the signs of skin laxity are still can help lift the skin.
Tips for Caring for Your Skin for Your 40s
Select a cleanser that exfoliates the skin’s surface. By exfoliating, you remove away the dead skin cells and help to unblock pores.
Apply a moisturizer with SPF every morning, even on cloudy days or when you are inside.
Using a serum will soak your skin with intense moisture. Always look for hydrating ingredients like glycerine which draws moisture from the air into your skin.
4. Moisturize at Night
Your skin repairs itself at night which makes a night-time moisturizer a key. A moisturizer with peptides will help speed up surface skin cell turnover and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
5. Do Not Neglect Your Eyes
Use an eye cream to diminish the presence of fine lines or puffiness around the eyes. Dab it on with your ring finger, tapping lightly to give an instant circulation boost to the eye area.
DONT FORGET TO MEET A DERMATOLOGIST
Become fast friends with your dermatologist. You must stop experimenting with your skincare and products and get some REAL advice on what to do and what not to do.
A dermatologist can guide you towards the proper skincare routine and prescribe products according to your skincare needs and concerns.
According to our beauty experts at Clinic Dermatech, we should give much more attention to our diet and lifestyle than before. Besides, we should religiously follow the skincare rituals and consult a good dermatologist before selecting our essential skincare products and treatments.
It is equally important that you visit a dermatologist or a skincare clinic for injectables like Botox or Dermal Fillers as not every dermatologist is an expert in this. Hygiene and proficiency matter too.
