Can you believe it? Hollywood stars Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, and even Cameron Diaz are over 40! Yes, aging is inevitable, but these stars can pass as half their ages because of the skincare routine they follow every day without fail.
When you hit your 40s, your skin tends to lose its elasticity and suppleness it once possessed because our body at that age produces very little estrogen and progesterone. So, if you don’t follow a good skincare routine, along with a balanced diet and regular exercise, you might notice the appearance of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and even large pores. And, unlike yesteryears, since the skin regeneration process also slows down substantially, caring for your skin becomes a priority. Now, fret not! It is not an impossible chore. Some anti-aging skincare tips can help you care for your skin and also slow down the process of aging. How? Well, keep reading to know more about skincare for 40+.
Cleanse It Right
The very first step you must take towards caring for your skin is hooking up with the right cleanser. If your cleanser doesn’t do its job first, even the most expensive creams and serums also don’t help. You must use a cleaner that contains natural ingredients to remove all the impurities from your skin. At night, you can use a cleanser with mild AHA or salicylic acid.
You should use the Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub that has extra-fine particles. The primary ingredients – Volcanic Lava Ash, Yugdugu, and White Lotus help in reducing fine lines, wrinkles, discolorations, suntan, pigmentation, and improving skin’s elasticity.
Every day and night, it is mandatory for you to moisturize. And, we are not talking about only your face but you must moisturize your entire body. Of course, not with the same moisturizer. Now, you need a day and a night moisturizer for your face that is filled with anti-aging benefits. Make sure while massaging your face with the moisturizer, you also pay attention to your neck and chest. Finally, for your body, use a nourishing body lotion, and follow this step as soon as you exit a bath. In fact, a steam bath also helps when you hit the 40s. Also remember, moisturize as often as required.
Day Time Serum
When it comes to serums, why ignore day time? In fact, invest in a good antioxidant-rich serum for everyday use. It can be an amalgamation of vitamin C and E or you can use them individually. And, when you pair your serum with a good moisturizer and then sunscreen, they work well to fend off UVA and UVB free radical, protecting your skin from the sun.
Sunscreen Is A Must
Your body is already trying to display signs of aging and you don’t need sun damage too to enhance the effect. Therefore, know this, sunscreen is a must, especially for skincare for 40+. Even when the weather is cloudy or maybe it’s winter, you need to apply sunscreen on your face, neck, chest, hands, and legs or any area exposed to the sun. Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream is a superachiever cream that offers sun protection, hydrates the skin, and improves skin’s elasticity. Built with SPF 50, this cream will help prevent sun spots and cover for discolorations like hyperpigmentation and redness. It also finishes matt which means that you will have a soft glow.
Retinol Serum At Night
Your vitamin C or E serum is for your morning, and retinol-infused serums are for the night. Retinol is magical for your skin. It helps reverse ageing, hyperpigmentation, and acne.
Night Creams Are Essential
Once you have cleansed and applied your serum, you need a good night cream to finish your skincare routine. Go for something that is heavier and suits your skin type. Make sure it contains regenerative properties, which can promote skin-cell turnover as you sleep peacefully at night. Some make use of face oils instead of night creams and they do work. However, you must first check if it suits your skin.
Now Is The Time For Eye Cream
You have probably heard some people say that eye creams aren’t important. Well, maybe they were not needed before, but you need them now. Why? Because the skin around your eyes becomes thinner and sensitive. Therefore, it requires something specially curated for it and that’s eye cream. Also, to take it a notch higher, what you can do is that you can store your eye cream in the fridge as it helps reduce puffy eyes and even constrain your blood vessels.
What You Eat Is Important
If you want beautiful skin, eat a balanced meal with proteins, vitamins, and minerals, and avoid processed food and sugar. If you crave something sweet, opt for dark chocolate. It is also rich in magnesium, which is essential for your body. Also, look for food products with probiotics as they are good for your gut, immune system, and leaves your skin radiant. Probiotics are found in yogurt, kefir, kale, kombucha, and sauerkraut. Now you know what to snack on!
Mask It Every Week
A face mask is almost like a mini facial, which helps enhance all the efforts you are now putting into your skincare. Therefore, look for something that is curated to the firm, lift, and brighten your skin. Get this Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Mask with Yugdugu & White Lotus. This mask not only remineralizes the skin, therefore preventing breakouts, but also brings up nutrients right up to the skin from within.
This one is a no-brainer because smoking leads to the aging of the skin. And now that you are in your 40s and are trying to minimize the aging effects, it is important that you quit this habit for the sake of your skin.
Neck Cream Anyone?
Did you know? Today, there are a plethora of products available for your neck. Why? Because as you age, the skin on the neck gets affected by wrinkles, which is not a pleasant sight. Therefore, use a special anti-aging cream targeted for your neck to reduce the effects.
Once or twice a week, make sure you use an exfoliator to help get rid of any dead cells. However, don’t use a harsh one and never over scrub. Be gentle!
So, these were some of the skincare tips that you can incorporate to help fight aging.
