Our forties is when negligence of our skin in our twenties really shows. In this decade, people may start to see dry skin, dullness, loss of volume, and wrinkles. Furthermore, if you have exposed yourself to sun damage throughout the years, you may also have to contend with hyperpigmentation.

Adapting your skincare routine for your forties:


Cell renewal becomes much slower in your forties, resulting in duller looking skin. In order to slough off dead skin cells, use the Lift Off Exfoliating Cleanser which will improve cell turnover to reveal a radiant complexion.


Sporadic breakouts can occur during your forties, so Dr Alexandrides recommends using a toner with Salicylic acid in such as the Ground Control Anti Blemish Tonic.  


The Y Theorem Repair Light Serum aims to target lines and wrinkles. This light weight serum will work with your skin day or night to heal the existing damage, and protect the skin from any further damage. It also contains the brightening ingredient arbutin, which will help to fade patches of uneven skin tone to reveal a brighter, more glowing complexion.


To get the most out of your moisturiser, you may wish to opt for one that does more than just hydrate the skin.

In your forties, skin may start to become dryer and you may see a lack of volume too. Opt for a nourishing anti-ageing moisturiser such as the Nocturnal Eclipse Recovery Cream which stimulates the production of collagen to restore volume and elasticity. Adding a few drops off the Space Aqua Booster to the moisturiser will boost your hydration levels even further.
