In your 40’s, you may find yourself looking in the mirror, slowly adding to your collection of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. However, being in your 40’s doesn’t have to mean your skin’s best years are behind you! Even if you have developed a skin regime that works for you, it is important to make a few tweaks to account for expected hormonal changes. A decline in oestrogen can lead to noticeable changes in the skin, especially when it comes to skin tone and texture. Paying closer attention to the ingredients featured in your favourite skincare products and looking after your body inside and out will see beautiful glowing skin for years to come.
Anti-oxidants are a must for skincare regimes that focus on anti-aging and reversing skin damage. Anti-oxidants are protective ingredients that shield skin from free radicals that can occur from injury to the skin. Problems that become more noticeable in your 40’s such as inflammation can be reduced by anti-oxidant rich skincare products to promote even skin tone. RACINNE’s Ultimate Youth Power Lotion uses an anti-oxidant formula which reduces the appearance of fine lines. Making skin feel and appear more revitalised, this product promotes a more youthful look. Anti-oxidants help to plump the skin, which is why they are key ingredient in many eye creams, moisturisers and serums.
Looking after you skin on the outside is only the first step to achieving a glowing complexion. Making healthy lifestyle choices, especially when it comes to sleep will encourage an essential recovery process. Poor sleeping patterns can lead to increased stress hormones which also contribute to a range of undesirable skin conditions. Lack of sleep is also a key contributor to the breakdown of collagen, necessary for supple skin texture. More noticeable signs of aging will result if a minimum of 8 hours are not dedicated to rest. Not to mention that sleep deprivation can lead to increased snacking and calorie consumption throughout the day. Washing and changing sheets regularly will not only help you have a good night’s sleep but it also reduces the spread of bacteria.
Moisturising your neck is just as important as moisturising your face. Your neck is one of the first places where signs of aging show. In your 40’s it is important to pay extra attention to this area in order to promote a more youthful look and slow down the ageing process. Applying a rich cream such as RACINNE’s Ultimate Youth Power Neck Emulsion will improve skin elasticity, reduce dead skin cells and keep the delicate area around your neck moisturised. Gently massaging the product into your neck twice daily will result in firmer, more naturally lustrous skin. Neglecting your neck is just as problematic as overlooking something as important as eye cream at this stage in life.
Your 40’s can seem like a time when life starts to catch up with you, especially when it comes to your skin. Long hours spent in the sun and staying up late may have seemed like a good idea at the time. If this is the case, spending extra time to make sure your skincare regime addresses all of your skin concerns can help to stop further signs of aging from appearing.
