6 Skincare Essentials For When You Reach 40 (And Beyond)

Skincare Essentials For When You Reach 40

Ok, you’ve hit 40. The good news is those pesky pimples are few and far between; but now you must get very serious about your skin care routine! It’s never too late to start looking after your skin - and to make it easy, Skin Virtue founder Nina Gajic has listed her top six skin care essentials to keep your skin looking fresh and glowing.

1. VITAMIN A: The standout star of anti-ageing skin care is Vitamin A, as it works to stimulate cell turnover and increase your skin’s natural collagen production. This helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

2. ANTIOXIDANTS: Crucial for skin cell longevity, antioxidants are found in serums, moisturisers, cleansers and lotions – so make sure you check the label! Antioxidants play a vital role in skin care as they combat free radicals, which can damage skin cells and accelerate ageing.

3. EXFOLIATE: Does your skin feel dull and your complexion uneven? You may not be exfoliating enough. Removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin will reveal fresher, smoother skin underneath. Exfoliation also helps unclog pores and stimulates cell renewal.

4. BOOST YOUR HYDRATION: Hydration is the key to keeping your skin cells plump and healthy. Look for skin care products that contain moisture-boosting ingredients to give your skin the hydration it craves. A powerful and exceptional moisturising ingredient is the little known Saccharide Isomerate, as it has the ability to bind the skin’s surface and create a moisutre locking barrier. This give you deep, long lasting hydration.

6. SUNSCREEN. ALWAYS: If you only have time for one anti-ageing product in your skin care routine, make sure it’s sunscreen. Sun exposure accounts for about 80 per cent of the visible signs of ageing, which can be slowed by the daily use of sunscreen. Applying sunscreen diligently helps protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which can cause wrinkles and dark spots.

7. LIFESTYLE: Finally, pay attention to your lifestyle. Maintain your nourishing skincare routine by consuming a well-balanced diet, staying hydrated, prioritising sufficient sleep, and engaging in regular exercise. Trust me, you will not only look better you will feel 100 per cent!
