So now you are in your big 4-0, 40’s. Congrats! You have made it this far. No less than a milestone, right? But do not forget your skin too has gone through many changes in all these decades including years of sun damage, ageing wrinkles and lax skin. Your skin SOS? Why a robust anti aging skincare of course!


What Really Happens To Your Skin In Your 40’s?

One thing is for certain. 40’s is not the age to look ‘too mature’. Though it is totally normal to experience maturing and advancing with time. However, many of us are just not ready to embrace the unwanted ageing signs. 

Most Common Ageing Signs On A 40’s Face

If you are not one of those who have a decent skincare routine, keep a track of the changes in your skin especially when you hit 40s or even 50s!

  • Wrinkles around the eyes

  • Dark shadows under the eyes

  • Lacklustre, dull skin

  • Blotchy skin & uneven skin tone

  • Easily visible pores

  • Poor rough skin texture

The Right Time To Kickstart Your Anti-Ageing Ritual?

Good news! It is never too late to make a change and beauty experts are one page on this one.

According to The American Academy of Dermatology Association, a pantry of quality anti-wrinkle products used in the 40’s and even 50’s can ward off ageing signs. 


However, the self-fulfilled prophecy of a younger, fresher looking skin does not come in a beauty jar. You also need to double up your anti aging skincare routine with healthy skin care habits, such as:

  • Religious skin protection from UV rays
  • Keeping your skin hydrated 
  • Never skipping an anti aging moisturiser with hyaluronic acid
  • Break up with smoking and never get back ever again!
  • Load on antioxidants inside and out to fight off skin damaging free radicals 
  • Get plentiful sleep at night for a youthful skin that will surely last! 

Top 3 Skincare To Stay Away From In Your 40s

A powerful anti-ageing approach should not only include what to use for your skin but also what not to put on it. 

Alcohol-Based Products

Oh no! Have you been indulging into skincare containing denatured alcohol such as toners, facial washes and makeup removers? Stop right away!

Dermatologists agree that as you age, your skin craves for hydration and an intact skin barrier.

But alcohol coming in contact with your skin can strip it of that much needed moisture. Moreover, a dry or sensitive skin type would never welcome it.

Petrolatum & Mineral Oil

These twins are not skin friendly because they readily clog pores and even make them look bigger.alcohol-skincare

While mineral oil based products may help sealing in the moisture into your skin, however, this barrier effect only suffocates your 40s skin. 

So, it’s good to stay away from petroleum based moisturisers and indulge in those with hyaluronic acid instead!

Harsh Skin Exfoliants

Yes! We know that by your 40s, your skin cells turnover process has become sluggish.

Thus, leading to uneven, blotchy and rough complexion.

However, that is no good reason to start buffing your delicate skin with abrasive physical exfoliants especially those beady scrubs and brushes. 

A long-term retinol and AHAs and BHAs is what you need!

Make Vitamin C & Vitamin A — Your Am To Pm Skin Partners!

These two are most talked about on Instagram, YouTube and on TV! The skin savvy audience just cannot have enough of it and for all the right reasons. Well, number 1, they actually work. Top skin experts and skincare labs validate their efficiency in delivering anti aging skincare benefits. 


So, while Vitamin C does its job in shielding your skin from harmful UV rays during the day, Vitamin A (retinoids) reverses and transforms it as you catch up on your beauty sleep. Sounds convincing?

What Does Vitamin C Do? 

In a word? Alot! This antioxidant is not only refreshing when consumed in the form of a morning juice but has tons of anti aging skin benefits as well. 

According to an article published by The Harvard Medical School, using this vitamin topically for 90 days on a daily basis can improve the look of facial and neck fine lines and wrinkles.

Mix it with your favourite sunscreen and you can beef up your skincare game to the whole new level!
