Tips for women in 40’s:
Two Powerful Assets for Keeping Your Skin Looking Young
They always seem to come out of nowhere. Those tiny little creases in the corner of the lips and eyes. Next thing you know, they’re full blown wrinkles. Too many long days in the sun have taken their toll and now when you’re 40-ish, things are getting out of control. Wow, there are also some discolorations on your face, the kind that are hard to conceal, and you wonder where it all went wrong.
I have some good news and some bad. I’ll give you the bad first so you can be happy in the end. The bad news is that you cannot stop the aging process. The good news is that you can still have beautiful skin, regardless of your age or past lifestyle. The experts in this field have learned about all the essential moisturizing products as well as a brand new regimen you can use to help slow down that aging process as much as possible.
Of course, you can always have Botox injections to rid yourself of a line here and there, but why do that when you can achieve healthy, young-looking skin without it?
The experts have discovered why women struggle with controlling aging skin. The first reason is because they tend to overdo it when compensating for the looks of their skin. They pile on the concealer and makeup way too heavy which only causes the wrinkles and lines to stand out more. This is according to Dr. Marina Peredo who is an associate clinical professor specializing in dermatology in New York’ Mt. Sinai Hospital.
Dr. Peredo suggests that instead of spending your money on the latest skin care products use it to pay for a visit to your dermatologist. A qualified skin doctor will be able to create a skin care regimen that is tailor made for your skin only. That totally beats the ‘one size fits all’ skin care packages you get at the retail market.
There are also some things you can do on your own. You should start and end each day with a smattering of cool water. Avoid sugary drinks throughout your day and replace it with water. keeping your skin well hydrated will make a big difference in how it holds up.
When you reach 40 it is a perfect time to start taking advantage of Retinol. However, there is one skin care treatment that so many women overlook, that should be used every day regardless of age – Sunscreen. After 40 it’s time to really step it up with the sun protection for your skin. Wear hats to shade your face if you are out in the sun for long periods of time. Be aware of the sun at all times and take measures to keep it from drying your skin out.
Of course all of this information and much more is waiting for you at your dermatologist’s office. Spend your money wisely, and get the advice you need for your specific skin type, before blindly treating yourself from the local drug store. Your dermatologist and a good sunscreen are your best one-two punch to lively, supple, moist, youthful skin.
