How to Stay Great Looking in your 40’s – Get Radiant and Smooth Skin
It’s no secret that as we age our skin changes. Sometimes those changes are hardly noticeable and other times sunny days create a worn and weathered look. By age 40, our skin changes biologically, and we begin to notice how our skin has changed. Parts of those changes include how well our skin holds moisture. Other skin problems such as adult acne often set in too. Stress is also a factor that impacts how we look and feel. It is important for you to treat your skin with proper Skin treatment to maintain a great looking skin!!
Skin ages naturally
It is important that people understand the biological and physical way that aging occurs naturally. When you understand how your skin has changed, you can address those issues on a daily basis through your skin care regime and different skin treatments. For faster and longer skin care corrections there are a variety of non-surgical ways that can help to recapture the youthful texture and glow of the skin. Even for people past their fourth decade, the results can be quite stunning.
Skin Care for Radiant Skin
1. Exfoliate regularly
The healthy glow of our skin is often hidden behind layers of dead skin that are just waiting to be sloughed off your face. As we age our skin cells regenerate slower. This means that your skin needs some extra help in removing the dead layer of skin on the surface of your face. This will allow the new skin cells to breathe. On average, it takes about one day for each year of our age for skin regenerate new cells and slough off the old cells. That means that, in our teens, the rate of skin regeneration is nearly twice as fast as when we are age 40.
2. Use quality prescription grade products
Growth Factors are essential in every skin care regimen. Growth factors repair and remodel your skin. Products such as SkinMedica’s TNS Essential serum contain all the major growth factors needed for beautiful skin. Retinols are used to exfoliate the skin’s dull top layer and assist in stimulation of new collagen on the surface of the skin. Retinols come in different strengths so it is important to talk to you doctor to see what is right for you. Antioxidants defend skin against free radicals and environmental damage. Products such as Skin Medical’s dermal repair cream or Laser Clinique’s own green tea therapy are essential components of any skin care regimen.

3. Hydrate your skin
Skin, as we age loses moisture. Beautiful skin needs moisture to glow. Add a quality hydrating moisturizer to your daily skin care regime. By age 40, our skin starts to dry out because our body slows down the production of sebum. Overcome that loss with a daily moisturizer.
4. SPF Protection
SPF protection from the damaging UVA and UVB of the sun is something everyone should be using from 6 months of age on up. In our 40’s, the sun is especially damaging because of the biological changes that occur with age. The risk of skin cancer grows too as we age. SPF protection is a must for everyone.
