So here you are after hitting the big 4 0 milestone. To many, there see this next decade as one of ageing. Why that is? We have no idea! Just look at Kate Winslet; beautiful, flawless and doesn’t look a day over 35! It doesn't need a team of makeup artists to hide your flaws, it takes a good skincare routine to slow down the ageing process and keep your youthful glow...
There are two main things we would recommend in stopping the ageing creeping in as you make your way through your 40’s.
The first and probably the most obvious is leading a healthy, active lifestyle. Whether it’s working out every day for 25 minutes or going on your weekly hike, don’t stop moving! Go out with the girls for brunch after dropping the kids off to school. These are just a few ways you can keep active. Drinking lots of water is also essential, as this is a way of naturally maintaining the fullness in your skin. And so is a solid night’s sleep. In your 20’s and 30’s you could get away with a wild night. However, in your 40’s, signs of lack of sleep show on your face now more than ever.
The second you ask? Skincare. Many women start to develop deep wrinkles in their 40’s because of the decrease in collagen production and decrease in cell turnover, (production of new cells). So, by having a great skincare routine under your belt, you can give a helping hand to your skin, doing a few of the things it used to automatically do.
Whether it’s a little drooping, fine lines, wrinkles or hyperpigmentation, a solid Millionaire Beauty skincare routine can help with all of that!
The first step to preventing ageing in your 40’s is protecting your skin from the sun. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, WEAR YOUR SUNSCREEN! Protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun is important now more than ever. We recommend a SPF 30 even when there are the greyest of grey clouds outside. The UV rays of the sun penetrate through the clouds and even through your window. So, even if you’re at home and sitting by a window, you must use your SPF. Furthermore, SPF 30 or higher prevent the formation of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Make sunscreen your best friend.
The second step? That’s moisturiser. As your estrogen levels fall, your skin becomes drier. This is why using a daily moisturiser is so important. a moisturiser with retinol can help boost your cells functioning, in turn, slowing down the ageing process, making your skin look firmer and smoother. That is why our Polypeptide Nourishing Moisturiser is the way to go! Its thick and creamy consistency provides maximum hydration for your skin. You can use it during the day as a rich day cream, or at night so that it can fully penetrate your skin, working its magic while you sleep. Its Polypeptides stimulate our skin to produce more collagen helping to minimise wrinkles and give us a fresher, more youthful appearance.
And that's how you keep away the signs of ageing in your 40’s.
Remember ladies, how old you are is your business, how old you look is ours.
