While you have received numerous compliments on your 40th birthday which you recently celebrated, you return home and while removing makeup, to your horror it suddenly dawns on you that your skin is ageing fast.
The occasional small pimple that used to show up at the corner of your eyes whenever you laughed has now become a stubborn ageing symptom that appears to be permanent now.
And you all of a sudden you started to believe that whatever Audrey Heprburn had said 50 years ago was all fake –
“And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!”
Before sharing the tips let’s just analyze where you went wrong.
Well, if we credit 20% to your careless lifestyle then 80% should go to the natural biological process in your body. Let’s not forget this universal factor that ageing is inevitable. But then our advanced technology and medical advancements have enabled us to slow down the ageing process if not stop it.
According to beauty experts, we should give much more attention to our diet and lifestyle than we used to give one decade back. Besides, we need to be very careful and should have a know-how in choosing the essential skincare products. We should also religiously follow the beauty rituals, provided we are serious about sustaining the softness of our skin.
Here are top 5 skin care tips for women in their 40s and beyond!
1. Go easy on your makeup routine
Wrinkles and fine lines on the face are the most visible ageing symptoms that keep us constantly screaming out loud our age. While many women consider caking on makeup in order to hide their ageing signs, the result is actually adverse.
Yes, you read it right. I strongly advise you to go easy on your foundation and primer which have apparently been your beauty saviors all these years. By caking on the make-up, your fine lines become only more pronounced making your skin look haggard because of the weight.
2. Know your anti-ageing brand
While the Indian market is now flooded with anti-ageing products, with every brand claiming to be genuine and offering the best results, chances are you’ll easily get confused. Do a little research with the help of the Internet to understand how anti-ageing cleansers, masks and creams work. You should also be aware of their formulated ingredients which help in cutting the years off your skin. Women skin care routines must be strictly followed, Cleansing, toning exfoliating and moisturizing daily is a must.
3. Go for retinoid treatment
Ever since the retinoid was approved, it took the cosmetic world by storm, as every skincare manufacturing company tried to induce this one-stop solution for almost all skin ailments. Some of the best retinol creams that slow down ageing: ReVive Intensite Creme Luster, Skinceuticals Retinol, Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster Retinol Eye Cream etc.
4. Hydrate your skin
Apart from all the available cutting-edge cosmetics for anti-ageing, do not forget the basics. Irrespective of your age, water is quite essential for your skin. Dehydration leads to haggard skin. So always hydrate your body by drinking water and consuming foods loaded with fluids. Add cucumber, watermelon etc. to your diet.
5. Bedtime beauty rituals
Night creams are a must for women in their 40s and beyond. Pick a reliable night cream that best suits your skin type.
