It’s no secret that when women reach the age of forty they must work harder at looking better. Society has brainwashed us all into believing that we are supposed to look twenty all of our lives and it’s just not true. There are, however, some things that you can do to ensure that you look your best all the time. Looking younger at forty and beyond is possible. Here are some of the best skin care secrets for women over forty.
The first thing to do is to make sure that you get plenty of sleep. When our bodies fall into the deep REM sleep cycle is when our skin tries to rejuvenate and rebuild.
Getting plenty of sleep will reduce the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and bags under the eye. If you can, try to sleep on your back. Studies have shown that women who sleep on their backs have fewer wrinkles than those who sleep on their sides. The weight of your head against a pillow for a long period of time will likely increase the amount of fine lines on your face.
Most women know that drinking lots of water is one of the best anti-aging secrets around. If skin is dehydrated it is more likely to wrinkle. Drink as much water as you can keep down daily.
It’s great for the skin and the rest of the body too. It also keeps you full so you may even lose some weight. If you don’t like the taste of water, try keeping some I the fridge with a hand full of fruit that you like. Fill up a pitcher and cut up a hand full of strawberries, kiwi, or lemons to throw in. Then you’ll get the added benefit of some extra vitamins to boot.
Moisturizing our skin is so important, especially once we hit forty. Its best to moisturize at night so your skin has the extra help to rejuvenate as you sleep. Don’t ever go to bed with make up on. Always clean you face and moisturize before you go to bed.
Always wear make-up with an SPF of 15 or higher in it. If your favorite make up has no SPF then put on a thin layer of sunblock under your make up. The sun does almost as much damage to our skin as smoking. It’s best not to sunbathe if you are trying to keep your skin looking its best after forty.
These are just a few of the most important antiaging secrets to keep you looking younger at forty and beyond. Get plenty of sleep and try to sleep on your back. Drink lots of water, moisturize, and use an SPF under your make up. If you follow these important tips, it will help keep your skin looking its best for years to come.
