These 10 essential tips would surly be of good help

Lose the Makeup, Gain a Doctor

To cover the signs of aging, women tend to overload on makeup and concealer, which can actually accentuate lines and wrinkles but Less is more when it comes to makeup on a mature skin.

Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse

Whether you do wear makeup daily or not, it’s crucial to dedicate some time every day to thoroughly clean YOUR face, preferably with a creamy cleanser that won’t strip YOUR skin of its natural moisture. And don’t even think about getting lazy with this. No matter YOUR age, it’s important to wash YOUR face before hitting the sheets.

Boost Up the Collagen

Collagen, the protein that helps skin remain its elasticity, is crucial for maintaining youthful, glowing features. However, skin loses its tone with age as collagen wears down, resulting in those unwanted fine lines. However, you can increase the collagen in YOUR skin.

Drink Plenty of Water

Always begin and end YOUR day with cool, crisp water. But don’t just stop there. Skip the sugary drinks and have water by your side at all times. Not only will it quench your thirst, but it will always keep your skin hydrated and supple.

Slather On the SPF

Experts say your 40s are the right time to START using retinol if you haven’t begun already, but there is one product you should be slathering on every day, no matter your age. Now is the time to really step up the sun-protective strategies with at least SPF 30 every day and also a hat if you are spending any longer than 5-10 minutes in the sun.


In addition to thoroughly cleansing your face every evening, it’s just as important to implement exfoliation once a week to slough away dry, rough patches that emphasize wrinkles. Just make sure to exfoliate gently, avoiding a red, irritated complexion that hurts to the touch.

Apply Eye Cream Religiously

In addition to sunscreen, experts say it’s just as important to apply eye cream every night. Why? Simple-the delicate skin around your eye is the thinnest layer of skin on your body, one that needs loads of hydration to stay tight, avoiding pesky lines that can deepen with time.

Make Moisturizer Your Friend

The most important part of your beauty routine every day after removing impurities is to put a protective, plumping barrier layer of plain moisturizer against your skin. This helps the skin protect itself from environmental damage, prevent too much moisturize loss through evaporation, and keeps surface cells translucent, keeping that glow of youth shining through when light hits your skin. It plumps up fine lines and wrinkles that can virtually disappear with the right moisturizer alone.

Consider an Antioxidant Serum

Antioxidants are meant to make YOUR skin appear softer and even tone. Using an antioxidant product, either combined with YOUR moisturizer or sunscreen, makes you stay radiant.

GET Your Beauty Sleep

The easiest thing you can do to look fresh and youthful every morning? Get plenty of sleep, no matter what. It’s during sleep that our bodies repair the damage from trauma and toxins we are exposed to during the day.
