Skin of 40s

It does not matter that you are one of the people who likes to use up to 10 products on the face in the cleansing routine, or those who are simpler and use only 3 products, each time a woman or man passes to another stage in their life, this procedure must change because the skin also changes.

Sadly, products that are manufactured for 40-year-old skin care use daunting phrases like “wrinkles,” “sagging,” or “wrinkled,” but the reality is that the signs of aging are only marks of experience that younger generations still do not know. These changes in the skin are largely related to perimenopause, which is the years before menopause, in this period of time, the skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity. In addition, starting at 35, collagen production fades almost 50% and becomes an important factor in the appearance of these “signs” of aging.

Another thing that is important to know is that the 40s are the stage where the damage caused by the sun begins to show its true face.

If you have not protected your skin in the time prior to your 40s, significant depigmentation may appear, precancerous spots and texture changes may also appear on the face, neck and décolleté. If wrinkles have deepened or if you want to even out uneven skin tone or even add much more hydration to your face, you need to use the correct products for this new stage of life.

For a cleaning routine to have its effect, a good cleaning is essential.

  • Start by washing your face with a cleanser that gives you a gentle exfoliation and contains anti-aging properties, choose to use products with AHA acids or enzymes that are of plant origin.
  • Then follow up with an antioxidant serum that contains vitamin C and E, ferulic acid, resveratrol and niacinamide, these help protect your skin against free radical damage.
  • As for a moisturizer, look for one that contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid, squalene, and glycerin. These ingredients replenish the skin and keep it hydrated throughout the day.
  • As a final step, do not forget the essential use of sunscreen. Choose one with zinc oxide and antioxidants to protect yourself from contamination as well.

Something else you should know is that the cleaning routine during the day is to protect you, while the cleaning routine at night is to repair and renew.

Therefore, it is important to clean your face well at night, remove makeup and all dirt that is generated during the day very well. For this, an alcohol-free tonic or micellar water would be ideal. Retinol is the star active ingredient in nighttime routines. Helps regulate exfoliation, prevents breakouts, smoothes the skin’s surface and evens out discoloration. So make it your star ingredient at night. Once a week, depending on your skin type, use a hydrating or lightening face mask.

The formula you choose also depends on the season you are in. A skin tends to dry out more in winter than in summer, so it would not be the same cleaning line that you would use in summer and winter. One myth that is wrong is that if you have deep wrinkles, they require more aggressive treatment, which they don’t. This could cause unnecessary inflammation and can backfire.


Aggressive products are not good on any type of skin.

If you want to reinforce the effect of your products, you should always consider taking a balance in your lifestyle. Sleep well, eat well, don’t drink, don’t smoke and all that kind of stuff. Do not spend a lot of time in the sun and take care of yourself at all times. Exercise is good for your skin too, consider it. In case you don’t find it convincing, I fully recommend that you pay a visit to your dermatologist to clarify any doubts.
