Women's skin care for the over 40s: how should it be?

Usually, around the age of 40, a woman's skin changes. It generally begins to lose its elasticity, becomes drier, red veins and pigment spots may appear, and neglected skin looks dull and tired. 

At this time, it is very important to take good care of one's skin, paying attention to hydration, nutrition and UV protection. The signs of ageing unfortunately cannot be stopped, but they can certainly be slowed down. 

Today we offer you some tips on how to keep your skin glowing and youthful even after the age of 40.

The importance of cleanliness
When it comes to skin care, the first priority is thorough cleansing in the morning and evening. We recommend choosing two different products - one for cleansing in the morning, to free the skin of substances excreted by the skin during the night, and another for evening cleansing of make-up and possible impurities. After cleansing the skin, other quality cosmetics should be applied.

Day cream, night cream and eye contour cream
It is generally recommended to use a day cream and a night cream of the same brand, as they usually complement each other and this helps to achieve the desired results. During the day, the skin should be moisturised and protected, while during the night it should be nourished.

Choosing the right products
Products should be related to the woman's age, as well as skin type (dry, combination). For women 40+ we also recommend adding a high quality eye contour cream.

Serum for the return of elasticity
It is also recommended to add serums that contain active substances to the cosmetic routine. Serums have a higher concentration and therefore give more nutrition to the skin. The serum should be applied a few minutes before cream application so that it is completely absorbed by the skin.

Exfoliation(scrub)
From time to time it is necessary to free the skin of dead skin cells so that the nutrients from cosmetic products can be absorbed by the skin. For this, it is recommended to do a gentle exfoliation (scrub) 3-4 times a month.

Moisturising or nourishing mask
After exfoliation is the right time to apply a moisturising or nourishing mask and relax for 15-20 minutes.

Let's not forget to drink enough water
We must not forget to drink enough water. We can use the best products, but if we are not hydrated enough, unfortunately our skin will be the first to show it.
