habits-for-skin-care-in-your-40sYou’ve heard skincare is important at any age, but there are some habits you should commit to when you reach your forties. Take a look at Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry and countless others in the spotlight showing off their beautiful, glowing skin. You too can find cleansers and serums to help keep your skin looking youthful and vibrant.

Try adding these seven beauty habits to your skincare regimen:

  1. Eat well -- Take a look not only at what you’re using on your skin, but what you’re providing as nourishment to it through your food. Eating healthy, good-for-the-skin foods and drinking plenty of water can help your skin have a natural healthy glow.

  2. Switch to a more gentle cleanser -- let the 20-year-olds use the harsh cleansers and switch to a more gentle one with lots of moisture. Try a cleanser that won’t cause irritation, and wash twice a day with it.

  3. Begin using a skin brightener -- fight dark spots that may crop up from your time spent at the beach or pool with a skin brightener. Apply it after exfoliating to get rid of dead skin cells and create an even skin tone.

  4. Take care of your hair -- combat one of the biggest signs of aging by using healthy scalp products for your hair. Not only will your hair thank you for it, but so will the skin underneath your hair.

  5. Use a multitasking serum -- adding a serum into your daily routine is ideal in your 40s. Try a serum with minerals and amino acids to help your skin behave more like younger skin, improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and rough texture.

  6. Keep an eye on your eyes -- the skin in your eye area is the thinnest, driest, and most susceptible skin to wrinkling. Protect your skin with an anti-aging serum containing advanced technology designed for your eye area.

  7. Consider professional, in-office treatments -- undergoing in-office treatments with a skincare professional is an excellent way to combat the signs of aging effectively. Take a look at some of the in-office procedures available at Monarch Skin Rejuvenation Center
