Great 40s skin care tips
Posted On: - 2012-09-19 19:34:39
When a woman enters her 40s, skin changes become more noticeable in the mirror. Fine lines will sneak up, drier skin increases, and skin may begin to sag. The skincare routine she had in her 30s for both morning and night may not meet her needs anymore.
It is time to change things up.
The family owned e-commerce skin care store in Carlsbad, Skin Care Heaven, is a great find for women going through this early skin challenge. They offer top of the line skin care products for all premature and mature skin types.
The spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven said that being in the 40s age range does not mean the end to youthful skin. It only means women need to become more skin aware and take advantage of the science behind skin care products.
Although we have heard it so many times, skin professionals wholeheartedly agree that sun damage is a huge culprit of premature aging skin. If women were diligent on a daily basis with a solar defense throughout their lifetime, then aging skin changes may not be so apparent.
Sun damage wreaks havoc on collagen. Those fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth are the evidence of collagen breakdown.
Skin care professionals are noticing that women in their 40s are not exfoliating as often as they should. They need to in order to shed away the top layer of skin to buff away fine lines. Women with maturing skin find chemical exfoliators a great pick. Some top shelf choices are Obagi Nu-Derm Exfoderm and Obagi Nu Derm Exfoderm Forte exfoliating lotions.
Skin care professionals also recommend using a retinol product in the 40s age group, too. Retinol can be found in both prescription and nonprescription. As one might guess, prescription strength is more powerful.
What is so important about retinol cream is that it promotes collagen production which improves fine lines and wrinkles. It is one of the most sought after anti-aging formulas out there. Because it may irritate the skin, it is always best to speak with a skin care professional beforehand for advice. The people at Skin Care Heaven can help with this.
Obagi Tretinoin Cream, an anti-aging cream, contains Retin-A at an impressive 0.1 percent. Being that it is the most powerful tretinoin cream that Obagi has on the market its defense against fine lines and wrinkles is unparallel.
It is important to point out that the sun is not the only thing that damages skin. The other premature aging skin attack is caused by glycation, a normal process everyone gets when they get older.
When glycated lipids and proteins naturally multiply in the skin it weakens the structure. Collagen and elastin fibers are seriously compromised.
Glycation can cause the following skin issues:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Saggy and slack skin
A breakdown in skin structure harming collagen and elastin
For users who prefer natural products, DermaEarth based in San Diego, offers a pharmaceutical grade technology which harnesses potent restorative powers of natural ingredients which are chirally resolved. All their products inhibit glycation issues.
Simply put, chirally resolved products are placed at a higher level, because they optimize the natural ingredient benefits while minimizing any side-effects.
DermaEarth took it upon themselves to self impose these rules and regulations that the FDA holds all pharmaceutical companies to abide by. From a skin care product perspective, it is rare to find products that are chirally resolved.
The DermaEarth product lines include:
Peptidal Cell Activating Serum
DermaEarth SugarBerry Skin Resurfacing Cleanser
DermaEarth EnLighten Cell Brightening Serum
Women in their 40s can enhance their collagen production and easily recapture the fountain of youth with cutting-edge skin care products.
