Skin Remedy Insights
Hi Skin Remedy Enthusiasts!
Catch up on some very interesting skin care insights on staying youthful in your forties from our very own Julie Osborn!
“I am in my mid forties now and my skin really has changed throughout the past couple of decades. No longer can I ride my youthful resilience and rely on basic maintenance to keep my skin looking healthy, I am now employed in the battle against time to hinder the aging process. I am sure many of you can relate!
There are many things you can do to help your skin appear more supple, smoother and youthful. Here are a few things I like to do to stay on top of it.
In your forties, skin dryness and excessive dehydration comes with the territory. This is because your dying skin cells are not replaced as quickly as when you were younger, and as a result can make your skin appear older and have a dull, uneven texture. Nobody wants that! For me, the answer lies not only in drinking plenty of water, but also adding a moisturizing serum underneath my daily/nightly moisturizer. My favorite is Skin Remedy’s own Hydrating Serum with hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid is a humectant which bonds moisture to the skin. After cleansing I massage a couple of pumps of this product into my skin and immediately see a fresher, plumper, dewier complexion. It feels beyond great and I look visibly younger!
Melasma, sun spots and freckles are the most common types of skin discoloration/hypepigmentation in your forties. They start coming on fast and seemingly out of nowhere. They are an accumulation of damage done to your skin over time from sun, the environment, and hormonal imbalances. A daily dose of topical vitamin A, or retinol, can help tremendously because it helps to slough away dead skin cells and reveal new growth underneath. For that reason it is also great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. I personally started using Skin Remedy’s Retinol moisturizer every night and have noticed an evenness in my skin that I haven’t seen in years. What’s more is that retinol also helps control adult acne. A super, multi-faceted product!
I have never gotten so many compliments on my skin as I have in my forties and not only do I totally believe it, I can absolutely see it! A routine of facials and using the right products for my aging skin every single day has proven to be the key to my skin care success and the secret to keeping my skin looking youthful and glowing!”
