Skincare Routines In Our 40's
Hopefully during our 30's, we will have become pretty settled on the products best suited to our skin type. While it’s great that we now have this level of understanding of our skin, we cannot become complacent. Our 40's will see a significant acceleration in the ageing process so the concerns we had in our 30's need to shift to focus on products which will help slow down the signs of ageing. When it comes to anti ageing products, we always recommend using a professional skincare range where results are backed by medical science rather than broad ‘studies’. Ranges such as Neostrata and Obagi offer dermatologist grade products which offer consistent, reliable results.
Top 3 Best Selling Products for clients in their 40's
Neostrata Skin Active Exfoliating Wash
By the time we reach 40, we will most likely be using some moisture heavy creams, serums and lotions, sometimes overnight - to hydrate the skin and keep fine lines under control. Using a regular exfoliating product is going to be crucial for two reasons; firstly to remove any build up of product at the same time as clearing away dead skin cells but secondly - and perhaps most importantly - to prepare the skin for the deep penetration of your other skincare products, this is crucial because heavier products can be great at creating a barrier and protecting the skin which is important but for the use of serums and other high strength products, we want to make sure they are able to be effectively absorbed by our skin. Our best selling exfoliating product for clients in their 40's is the Skin Active Exfoliating Wash from Neostrata which contains Polyhydroxy acids to clear the skin in combination with soothing aloe, chamomile, cucumber and other natural based ingredients to keep the skin protected and refreshed.
Ever wondered why our lines look more pronounced when we wake up in the morning? To put it simply, everything hinges on skin hydration. Hydrated skin is healthy skin and this has a direct impact on lines which are 'fine' in appearance becoming 'deep set' - and, as we all know, deep set lines are much more difficult to remediate with aesthetic treatments so it really is essential to keep your skin nice and hydrated. Obagi hydrate is our all time best selling product specifically designed to provide long-lasting hydration and protect our skins natural moisture barrier. Our clients absolutely love this product praising it especially for its lightweight feel compared to high street alternatives which can feel heavy and greasy when applied.
Heliocare 360 Gel
Keeping our skin protected from the sun is essential not only for preventing the early signs of ageing but also keeping our skin healthy. In our 40's, it is important to consider SPF protection as part of our daily routine regardless of the time of year! Our best selling SPF for clients in their 40's is the Heliocare 360 Gel which provides powerful, advanced sun protection from UVA and UVB rays using naturally derived ‘fernblock’ technology. The gel is super lightweight so the perfect product to complete your skincare routine.
