"But the years pass, our years as the birds fly ...". And now flew to the rock (and in the opinion of many women) mark "40". But let's not old fashioned! It is in the nineteenth century, forty years - a woman's age. But today's forty-year career, and are able to start from the ground up to do, and get married (albeit not the first time), and even become a young mom. That is progress! But let's not delude ourselves and pretend that we do not see how our skin begins to age. Only despair, we also will not. And so as a means Makropulusa still not invented, then just try to follow all the rules, which should be carried out facial after forty years.

Features of the skin after forty

For forty years the skin enters the stage of decay. This is not aging, but already the first and obvious signs of age. After forty years of age-related physiological changes begin to appear more and more intense, and their symptoms become noticeable. Forty years - abroad, after which starts the process of involution (the opposite of evolution). And what this process is shown?

  • Degradation of connective tissue elements

Starts dystrophy (nutrient deficiency, depletion) connective tissue. Its collagen fibers become thicker, some of them breaks down or glued. As a result, the skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Tugor reduced and the skin (water saturation) and begins its dehydration as a result of reduction of mucopolysaccharides.

  • Reduced function of the sebaceous glands and atrophy

The skin becomes dry and more susceptible to the harmful effects of the environment. By the way, oily skin ages more slowly.

  • Thinning of the epidermis

That decrease in the thickness of the hypodermis becomes a reason for the appearance of wrinkles: the skin begins to gather in folds.

  • Violation microcirculation

Vascular permeability changes, and as a result there are spider veins and telangiectasia (visible surface blood vessels).

  • Hormonal changes

The age status is manifested in the growth of hair on the upper lip. This is not a pathology, and it is a natural and logical process.

But yet all these changes are quantitative, not transformed into quality. And they have seen only on some problem areas:

  • The corners of the eyes, which begin to appear characteristic "crow's feet";
  • Leather century, which is heavier and going to fold;
  • Nasolabial folds, the depth of which begins to increase, and she fold becomes more pronounced and "expressive."

Thus, the skin becomes thin, dry and so loses freshness and elasticity. Therefore skin care after forty years to be somewhat different. Caring for a person now need to gently and thoroughly than before.

The concept and the rules of skin care

Let's start with a general concept to be followed. What procedures should include facials after forty?

  1. Cleansing

    The facial skin becomes more "capricious" and vulnerable. And if in twenty years, it was still possible to afford to go to bed without removing makeup and cleanse your skin, but now it is simply unacceptable. Eliminate the consequences of such "weakness" in the morning is almost impossible. Yes, and the skin will not forgive us this attitude. But the procedure of cleansing facial skin is not limited only to the removal of make-up before going to bed. It should also make cleansing mask and exfoliating.

  2. Food

    Now (after forty) it is advisable to use creams her age lines, which are specially designed for intensive skin nourishment, often fortified, and full of the necessary trace elements for the skin. Nutritious masks from natural products, as well as mesotherapy, too, will not be superfluous.

  3. Humidification

    Be sure to use not only nutritious, but moisturizers (day and night) for the face, as well as sera, which enhance the action of the cream. And, of course masks to help save tugor skin.

  4. Anti-aging treatments (antieydzh)

    If there is an opportunity to visit a beauty salon, then, believe me, it's time to start doing it. Just do not dwell only on the contouring (which is not bad) should not be neglected anti-aging treatments (lifting, peeling, masks). By the way, if the hardware cosmetology services you can not afford, do not despair. Folk remedies, as well as ready-made masks can be even more effective costly procedures.

  5. Protection

    Proper care of a person implies the protection of the skin. Use cosmetics containing protective components (from the sun, the cold), as well as carry out anti-stress treatments. Do not smoke, please! Pity yourself. Nicotine completely (completely!) Destroys all protection for your skin, body alignment, and the aging process begins to go with catastrophic speed.

  6. Proper nutrition

    Yes, facial skin care after forty should be implemented and inside. More fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy products, fish. Less meat, alcohol, sweets and starchy foods. Trite? Perhaps, but the facts are stubborn things. And what we eat is reflected not only in our figure, but also on the skin.

Proper skin care after forty years is as follows:

  • Daily morning and evening treatments using special cosmetics;
  • Weekly masks or compresses to the face (moisturizing, nourishing, anti-aging);
  • Monthly visits beauty parlor (peeling, lifting, mesotherapy);
  • Get enough sleep and proper nutrition;
  • Massage and physiotherapy.

In addition, after forty years, you can start taking drugs (based on ginseng or golden root, for example), anti-aging. Acceptance of such funds - the same kind of skin care. Just be sure to consult with your doctor!

Face masks

Facial care is not limited to the use of cosmetics. Face masks - that your skin is particularly necessary after forty years. Do you need a mask at least once a week, with the exception of wax and protein, which makes once a month. Believe me, they will positively affect the condition of the skin, provided that such care is systematic.

  • Rejuvenating mask made on the basis of curd, honey and lemon.
  • Nutritious masks - yeast, cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs.
  • Cleansing Mask - honey, oat flakes with the addition of vodka or glycerol.

Honey facials soften, cleanse and disinfect skin. Masks with aloe tone the skin and contribute to the regeneration of its cells. All dairy products perfectly nourish the skin, egg and yeast it smooth. Just choose the needed mask for your skin type and use them only natural and fresh products.

After forty years of your skin is still good. Only nature can not be fooled - aging is inevitable. It is impossible to prevent, but slow - please. And this tool is only one - the right care. Be attentive only to itself, holite and cherish your face (literally). Caring for the skin is necessary, of course, at any age, but after forty years to do it you just need to carefully. Stay always beautiful!
