5 Skincare Tips for Women Over 40 - by Carol Priest

A good skincare routine is essential at all ages especially for women over 40. While we can't stop the clock, we've got 5 tips to keep skin looking its best at all times for a healthy glowing complexion and to help prevent visible signs of ageing.


1. Directly target skin concerns like ageing, dryness, blemishes, dullness & redness, with a concentrated serum

Youthful skin is just a drop away with an antioxidant rich serum. After cleansing and toning, we recommend applying a skin nourishing serum. Serum's contain highly concentrated amounts of active ingredients and can work quickly to restore your skin’s natural moisture levels while helping to reduce the visible signs of ageing including dullness, redness, blemishes, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. See how @kittiemui uses our Neroli Serum as part of our her AM and PM skincare routine to keep her skin looking fresh and rejuvenated:



2. Use a cream-based cleanser to remove make-up when cleansing at night. 

Oil-based or foam cleansers can strip your skin of natural oils, leaving skin feeling dry and tight. A cream cleanser gently removes dirt and oil without disrupting the skin's natural barrier, leaving skin feel soft and hydrated. @sophieweek uses our Rose & Almond Cleansing Cream to help remove her make-up and is loving it!




3. Moisturise Day and Night 

The best time to lock in moisture and keep skin looking dewy all day long is to apply a moisturiser right after your morning shower and again before bed. Try an antioxidant and nutrient-rich moisture cream formulated for dry skin to help smooth, nourish and brighten skin for a healthy and hydrated complexion.

4. Incorporate a Night Cream into your Evening Skincare Routine

A good night cream will help to relieve relax and revive tired skin while you sleep. We recommend using a night cream rich in antioxidants such as Vitamin E to strengthen your skin barrier and nutrient rich oils to help prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

5. Exfoliate several times a week

Exfoliating stimulates the skin to produce new healthy skin cells, which helps brighten skin and improves skin radiance. It also acts like a primer by smoothing skin so applying makeup is flawless. Try using a gentle, deep cleansing and creamy protein-rich exfoliant such as our Almond & Lemonbalm Facial Cleanser for best results.
