Every woman dreams of having flawless skin throughout her life. However we are all aware of the fact that this is a distant reality as aging is natural part of life. You may look at your favorite star on the red carpet and wonder how she looks gorgeous at 50. Well, what you see on your screen is a plastic doll that has been through several surgeries and hours of make up to look the way she does.In reality one cannot have flawless skin at 40; however you can use natural treatments and skin care regime to ensure that you have a healthy glowing complexion. You can help yourself achieve the skin type that you desire. You don’t need to invest hundred of dollars in the skin care industry to look good; a few minutes of pampering your skin in the comfort of your home will suffice.
Start with a good cleansing routine. Wash your face 3 to 4 times a day to get rid of excessive dirt and oils that creep onto the surface. Use a gentle cleanser to get rid of the dirt. Those products that have Aloe Vera or almond oil clean your skin and nourish it at the same time. Use a toner all over your skin and neck for deep cleansing. You must avoid stepping out in the sun without using a good sunscreen. As you age your body is not able to process all toxins with ease and the damage caused by the sun may leave liver spots or age spots on your skin.
Make an effort to use sunscreen on all exposed parts of your body. The sun is also the main cause of wrinkles and fine lines on your skin so protection against the sun is extremely vital. Use sunglasses when you step out. If the sun is too hot you may squint. This leads to lines forming on your eyes. Hence investing in a pair of good sunglasses is very important. Use a moisturizer and an age defining cream on your skin. This will set the clock back on your skin by a few years. Use a generous amount of the product at night. Regular facials and pamper sessions will take you a long way in preventing the formation of wrinkles and fine lines on your skin.
