Discover The Best Way to Revitalize Your Aging Skin

Hey Beautiful!

As we age, our skin goes through various changes. From hormonal changes, environmental factors, and even lifestyle habits, our skin can experience different textures, tones, and even conditions. Thus, it's essential to change our skincare routine as our skin changes.

Skincare in your 20s and 30s

In our 20s and 30s, our skin is at its peak, producing more collagen and elastin, making it firmer and more resilient. This is also the time when we should start paying attention to our skin's needs and build a consistent skincare routine that focuses on cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting the skin from harmful UV rays.

However, many of us 40+ were not concerned with doing this in our 20's because we simply didn't know what we know today. 

Skincare in your 40s and beyond

Your skin's changing, but are you changing your behavior around your skincare routine?

As you approach your 40s, your skin's production of collagen and elastin starts to decline, leading to a loss of firmness and elasticity.

You may also start experiencing dryness, sensitivity, and age spots. Therefore, your skincare routine needs to adjust to meet these changes.

Starting in your 40s, you want to focus on using products that hydrate and boost collagen production, such as serums and creams that contain hyaluronic acid, peptides, and vitamin C. You may also want to incorporate retinoids and AHAs to help with fine lines and hyperpigmentation.

For super sensitive and dry skin, you may wish to exfoliate using a gentle microfiber washcloth or flannel.  

You may also benefit from switching to a more nourishing moisturizer, like our Whipped Olive Oil Face Butter, that soothes your skin and prevents dryness. Applying a facial oil after your moisturizer can be a great additional solution for helping you retaining moisture and prevent TEWL.

Unique Skincare Goals For Aging Skin

After 40 your skin needs certain ingredients to support it so your skincare products should reflect that.

We deliberately use Olive Oil in our skincare because it's superior in helping YOU replenish moisture, especially as you age and lose oil. 

Additionally, incorporating exfoliating pads a few times a week can keep your pores clear and looking smaller, while a nighttime retinol cream can help you achieve your anti-aging goals, improving fine lines and texture. Last but not least, applying daily sunscreen will help protect you from further damage and signs of premature aging.

And whatever you do, don't forget about your eye area, which is the most delicate thin tissue on your body! Apply a restorative eye cream in the PM to target crow's feet and wrinkles and a caffeinated eye cream in the AM to support dark under eye circles and puffiness. 

In conclusion, your skincare routine should adapt to your skin's changing needs as you age. What changes have you noticed in the last few years that you don't like? What bothers you the most? Start there.

While you have your unique skincare goals, such as fading dark spots or lessening the appearance of wrinkles, proper moisture is always a foundational key to unlocking brighter looking skin with fewer visible wrinkles. 

By understanding these inevitable changes that occur with your aging skin, you can develop a skincare routine that supports your skin's overall health and radiance, too!

The more you know the more you glow!

With love,
