We are all unique people, and so is our skin, which needs care routinely. And whether your skin is dry, oily, clear, or acne-prone, we’ve put together a few tips from cosmetologists that will help you take care of your skin. So give them a read and let us know what you think!

Skin Care for Those Over 40

The older we become, the more changes our skin experiences. We begin to feel the dryness of our skin in our 40s, signifying the declining levels of estrogen in our system. Then dark spots, blotchiness, and fine lines become more noticeable. And as we age more, they keep progressing; and this just means that things need to be altered in our skincare.

A cleanser, an eye cream, a good moisturizer, and UV protection that perfectly matches your skin type (whether dry or oily) is something that shouldn’t be overlooked.

And if you have sun-damaged or dry skin, it’s advisable to add serum oil into your routine at night so it can penetrate well while you sleep.

Night Care

There are many night creams that replenish the skin and it’s essential to have one in your arsenal. After a long day, it feels so great to be back at home, and all you need do is have a relaxing shower and apply a luxurious night cream to help replenish your skin overnight so you can wake up glowing. 

The Triumphant Trio

This skin care trio is important for protecting, brightening, and tightening your skin. They are… antioxidants, SPF, and retinol. Recently, they’ve proven themselves to reverse signs of aging. When buying antioxidants, search for a product with vitamin C, E, and other various berry contents. Including this trio into your skin care routine will reduce collagen breakdown and protect your skin.

Condition Your Nails

Make sure cuticle oil is apart of your daily staple just the same way you frequently make use of your lip balm. Cuticle oil is vital in keeping both the cuticles and the nails healthy.

Regular Exfoliation

The best time to exfoliate your skin is before you hit your 30’s. This is because, in our 20’s, our skin tends to produce more new cells. But cells turn over more slowly when in our 30’s, leading to dry and dull patches. However, exfoliation can help with this.

Your skin sensitivity will depend on how often you should exfoliate. Generally, you shouldn’t exfoliate beyond twice a week once you’re over 30 when the skin begins to lose elasticity and needs gentler care.

Remember to Remove Your Makeup Before Bed

Now after a very hectic day, all we want to do next after getting home is to just relax. But no matter what, you need to make sure you remove makeup before going to bed. Sleeping with foundation can damage your skin since breakouts and inflammation can be caused due to clogged pores.

A Quick Fix for Your Legs

On the off chance you don’t have enough time to have a full shower shaving session before leaving the house, rub baby oil around your legs before using the razor. The oil will serve as a protector to the skin and also leave your legs very glossy.


Taking care of your skin isn’t the easiest, but thankfully there are plenty of experts out there to help us out. Now if you have any great beauty tips yourself, we’d love to hear about them!
