After 40 years, a woman should take care of a comprehensive facial - on the one hand, she should moisturize the skin with cosmetics adapted to her skin type, on the other, prevent wrinkles.
Mixed skin - one skin, two problems
As a rule, the owners of mixed skin are women who in their youth struggled with the problems of oily and acne skin - after 25 years, when the skin begins to "mature", there are some changes in the structure of the epidermis. Oily skin usually turns to mixed - dry or normal on the cheeks and oily on the nose, chin and forehead - and gradually loses its existing elasticity. Ladies with combination skin should take care in such a situation not only to smooth out wrinkles, but also to avoid a situation where the skin of the face may become dry or oily.
How do I care for combination skin?
A mixed type of face can be treated in two different ways: in the T zone, use cosmetics for oily skin, and in other parts of the face - for normal or dry skin, or use one product specially created for this skin type.
In a situation where the skin on the face is very dry on the cheeks and is prone to irritation, it is better to use the first option - it is difficult to find a cream that thoroughly moisturizes dry skin on the cheeks and reduces excess sebum secretion from the T-zone.
In a situation where the skin on the cheeks does not cause any particular problems, we can successfully use preparations intended for combination and normal skin.
Moisturizer and anti-wrinkle cream - how to combine?
Studies show that women with dry and sensitive skin age faster - the skin has the least resistance to adverse external factors such as UV radiation, which leads to dry skin, flaking and rapid wrinkle formation. In the case of combination and oily skin, this situation is completely opposite - a thick lipid layer on the epidermis is an excellent barrier against UV rays. However, this does not mean that we can completely abandon the anti-wrinkle cream.
After forty years, every woman's beautician must find a suitable face cream (including day and night cream) that will meet the individual needs of the skin and also reduce wrinkles.
Cosmetics for mature skin - what should it contain?
When choosing a moisturizer for mature skin, it should be noted that it is enriched with concentrated ingredients that rejuvenate the skin, such as collagen, elastin, retinol and vitamins A, E and C, which stimulate the epidermal cells to act, tighten the skin and give the face a youthful and radiant appearance. …
After forty years, it is better to give up cosmetics that have been developed for all skin types - at this age you should focus on special facial care that will significantly slow down the aging process.
