Finding Your Best Skin After 40

Ever glanced in the mirror and noticed changes that seemed to appear overnight? Dryer skin, a loss of that youthful glow, and just looking… tired. It’s not just you. It’s a common narrative as we step into our 40s, leaving many of us wondering, “Why now?”

Hormonal Changes & Collagen: The truth lies in our hormone shifts. From our 20’s, we start losing collagen at about 1% per year. But hitting 40 accelerates this due to hormonal changes, particularly with oestrogen’s decline in perimenopause, leading to dryness, roughness, and fine lines. These hormonal imbalances, while subtle at first, play a significant role in changing our skin’s texture and appearance.By the time we reach menopause we will lose up to 30% of collagen in the first 5 years after menopause. So addressing skin changes early will really help to prevent their accumulation later..

But… here’s the silver lining – looking fabulous at any age is absolutely within reach with a bit of dedicated “me time.” Let’s look at some of  the key ingredients that will help achieve this :

  • Peptides: These tiny proteins are fundamental in keeping our skin firm and smooth. Peptides not only boost collagen but also increase elastin and reduce pore size, resulting a firmer smoother skin. Our most popular  peptide treatments and products include the award winning skin booster Redensity One which contains over 8 amino acids alongside hyaluronic acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of peptides giving that sought after smooth, glowing complexion.Products containing peptides such as Obagi professional peptide facial serum with consistent use will also help to achieve a firmer, smoother skin.
  • Retinols: Known for their unparalleled anti-aging benefits, retinols encourage healthier skin cycles, leading to a visibly smoother complexion.
  • AHAs and BHAs: When we talk about AHAs and BHAs, we’re exploring that realm of skincare that even Cleopatra would approve of. Consider this: the secret to her legendary beauty was rumored to be baths in milk, rich in natural AHAs, keeping her skin youthful and radiant. Fast forward to today, and we’ve refined this ancient wisdom into treatments like chemical peels. These modern scientifically backed formulations gently exfoliate, stimulating healthy skin renewal and collagen production, much like Cleopatra’s milk baths, but with the precision of today’s science. It’s a blend of history and advanced skincare,ensuring you emerge with a complexion that’s glowing and refreshed, worthy of history’s most iconic figures.

Incorporating these skincare strategies, from the power of peptides to the benefits of retinols and the magic of AHAs/BHAs, is key to addressing the skin challenges we face in our 40s. Inspired by ancient beauty practices like Cleopatra’s milk baths and fortified by modern science, these ingredients help us navigate hormonal changes with confidence. With the right approach that refreshed natural glowing complexion is within easy reach.
