Skincare at age 40 Skincare at age 40

When you reach this age, the skin becomes less radiant and wrinkles begin to appear. So, what kind of skin care measures should you take?

According to the American Dermatology Association, elastin and collagen levels significantly reduce in the skin at this stage. In order to get them back, the recommendation is to use products that have ingredients such as retinol and hyaluronic acid.

It is also important to protect your skin from the sun. The key is to prevent problems such as skin cancer, warts and age spots. Always use sunscreen that contains UVA and UVB protection; applying it on the arms, chest and face.

Another tip is to reduce the amount of makeup you use, as this builds up in the lines and wrinkles in your face, exacerbating the signs of aging. The recommendation is to use a natural foundation with hydrating formulas, as these do not enter the lines in your face as much.

But the skin is not the only thing that ages over time: as it grows finer, and you begin to lose it more frequently, hair also needs to be cared for. To prevent hairs from falling out, use hair masks that can moisturize or strengthen it once or twice a week.
