The importance of a good skincare regime is drilled into us from the second we hit our teens – cleanse, tone and moisturize on a daily basis! But with so many other products now available on the market, modern skincare can become a bit confusing. Do you know how to use facial serum, oil cleansing, masks or other treatments properly? Many women simply are not taking advantage of the range of products available on the market to combat common skin issues, and are instead turning to drastic cosmetic surgery before it is really needed.
A Last Resort
Cosmetic surgery is a great way to reverse the signs of ageing – a facelift or chemical peel procedure instantly rejuvenates the skin, making you look fresher and younger. But if you're in your 30's or 40's, the chances are that these procedures aren't necessary – you could achieve a youthful glow at home with some of the latest skincare products.
Skincare products containing vitamins are big business right now, and by choosing a brightening Vitamin C facial polish, you'll be sloughing off dead cells for a complexion that is glowing by morning! Facial wash and moisturizer containing Vitamin E is great for rejuvenating and softening rough, dry skin, and will help with cell turnover. For dark circles or signs of ageing, cucumber and Aloe Vera are tightening and brightening, but gentle on the skin.
Change your Moisturizer
As you age, your moisturizer should change – the light, oil free lotion you relied on in your 20's won't benefit skin in your late 30's. Look for anti-ageing ingredients, and try to stick to skincare products which are as natural as possible. Moisturizing at night is particularly important as you get older, as this is the time when your skin heals and regenerates.
A good skincare regime will help to prevent and reverse signs of ageing in your 30's and 40's, so no drastic cosmetic surgery procedures are needed.
