Age perfect skincare: 40’S

Age perfect skincare: 40’S

Skin aging is a very complex process that is influenced by both internal factors (your DNA) and external factors such as the sun, pollution, weather conditions, smoking. Every skin is unique and the same can be said of the ageing process.  Although, there are certain changes and ageing signs that occur frequently within a certain age range. Therefore, it can be useful to switch your skin care routine over the years. In this blog, we list the most important changes, ageing signs and associated skincare tips for your 40’s.

Keep in mind that this is NOT a fixed guideline! For example, certain tips are described for 40's, but remain useful for other age categories as well. So definitely take a look at the other blogs: 20's, 30's and 50's. Moreover, everyone ages in a different way and one tip will be more applicable to you than the other.

Different skincare for different ages

Should you change your skincare routine when you grow older? The answer is, yes, to a certain extent - watch this skintip to find out more and get some insights by Dr. Barbara Geusens.

Skincare in your 40’s

The first signs of aging that show up during someone’s 30’s, like fine lines around the eyes, increased pigmentation, poorer texture, and deeper smile lines all become more pronounced in the 40’s. During this decade your body is in a transition period, which means the start of menopause. This is accompanied by a reduced estrogen production, which will also affect your skin.

TREAT PIGMENT SPOTS

When we talk about aging signs of the skin, everyone spontaneously thinks of wrinkles. But pigmentation spots are also an important parameter in determining whether someone has an aging skin.  If you suffer from dark spots, there are different types of treatments that can help:

  • Cosmetics: vitamin C (>10%), Niacinamide or vitamin B3, Liquorice root, hydroquinone, Kojic acid, Retinol (>0.3%)
  • Aesthetic treatments: dermobrasion, laser therapy and chemical peelings
  • medicines: hydroquinone (2%-4%), azelaic acid (5%-20%), corticosteroids, tretinoin cream

PAMPER YOUR SKIN WITH A REPAIR MASK

As we get older, our skin can't recover as quickly from environmental and lifestyle stress factors such as late nights, long hours at work and little sleep. That's why it certainly doesn't hurt to 'pamper' and 'boost' your skin with a facial mask during your 40s.

VITAMIN A ON PRESCRIPTION

We explained the use of vitamin A as an anti-ageing ingredient already during ‘your 30’s’. During this age category we focused on the ‘light form of vitamin A’, Retinol. If you wish to have stronger effectsbut without surgery, you can also use tretinoin on prescription during your 40s. Consult a dermatologist for this. Tretinoin boosts your collagen production and inhibits its breakdown, resulting in fewer wrinkles. In addition, it can also be used for inflammations and hormonal acne, a problem that sometimes occurs in women during their 40s due to fluctuations in the hormone balance.

Nomige’s main tipInvest in a good day and night cream, containing high quality active ingredients, such as vitamin A, Niacinamide, L-ascorbic acid, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, hydroquinone, kojic acid…

THE BEST TIP FOR EVERY AGE: personalised products

In this blog we described some important skincare tips for during your 40’s. Although there are certain signs of aging that are common and ingredients with a broad anti-ageing effect, it is impossible to give a guideline that applies to everyone. Everyone’s skin 'behaves' in a different way. It is therefore not a surprise that "tailor-made" skin care is the future within the beauty world! 

Nomige is an innovative and tailor-made skincare brand that examines your specific needs by taking both your DNA and lifestyle into account. Once we know what your problems and risks are, we can act much more specifically on them!

Nomige Package

€499,00

Nomige offers an Exclusive package consisting of 4 personalized products. Three of them are based on your DNA profile, where we investigate genes involved in the skin aging process. We examine the risks (so-called 'mutations') in your DNA and take them into account when formulating your products. The fourth product, the day cream, is formulated based on your lifestyle. Lifestyle factors such as sleep, stress and sun exposure may influence the condition of your skin during your 40’s.  By means of a questionnaire, we gauge certain lifestyle factors and select ingredients for your day cream that specifically act on them.
