Skin Care Tips for Your 40s

By the time you approach your 40s, you may start noticing severe changes to your skin. These changes may require you to adjust your skin care routine. Our Englewood dermatology center recommends the following tips so that you can maintain your youthful appearance and vigor.

Use Products with Hyaluronic Acid: Aging during your 40s can cause your sebaceous glands – the glands that produce oil to lubricate skin – to slow down. This can leave skin feeling dry and lax. Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient that replenishes moisture, which allows your skin to feel firm and smooth again.

Add Serum to Your Routine: Serums contain heavy-duty moisturizers that penetrate deeper into the skin. They also contain vitamins and antioxidants, which combat the visual effects of aging, like uneven pigmentation and wrinkles. Adding a serum to your daily skin care kit revitalizes your complexion.

Try Superficial Chemical Peels: Do not let the name scare you away: chemical peels rapidly exfoliate the skin, getting rid of dead cells and excess oil. This procedure unclogs pores and can even out your complexion. Your skin clinician can customize a chemical peel that meets your needs.
