Most women strive to slow down aging and preserve their youth in various ways. After overcoming the milestone at the age of forty, many begin to try the entire range offered by cosmetics stores in the hope of hiding and getting rid of wrinkles that appear. Then a quite logical question arises that worries quite a large number of women: do all the ways that the modern beauty world offers us really work?

Unfortunately, there are always remedies that will not give any effect, and sometimes they can only make things worse. We tell you more about this together with a dermatologist.

What happens to the skin?

Against the background of hormonal changes associated with age, skin-related changes appear in a woman’s body. It becomes more vulnerable and dry, nutrients begin to be absorbed more slowly and regenerative processes slow down. All these aspects require the right selection of comprehensive care. Due to the peculiarities of the skin after 40 years, beauty products should help her, not harm her.

Undoubtedly, there is a certain list of products that have a beneficial rejuvenating effect on the skin, but there are also useless products. For example, you should not give preference to dense products that contain preservatives, dyes or strong fragrances. Such substances can cause an allergic reaction. Also, although they do not penetrate into the layers of the epidermis, they cover the skin with a film, preventing useful components from affecting it.

After 40 years, the facial skin of most women undergoes significant changes. Elasticity is lost, and imperceptible facial wrinkles become deeper. In addition, over time, the production of collagen and elastin begins to decrease, which previously helped to maintain a clear oval of the face and did not allow the skin areas in the chin area to sag.

In pursuit of youth and beauty, many are ready to buy up any means, just to achieve the desired result. That’s just not all of them have a really positive effect. Therefore, it is so important to carefully approach the selection of creams and masks, because some may not just be useless, but also cause irritation with dryness. 

Dense creams

Creams of dense consistency on oil bases become one of the main enemies in the cosmetic bag of any woman after 40 years. Due to their texture, they cannot penetrate deep into the layers of the dermis, but lie only on the surface of the skin, clogging the pores and slowing down the regeneration process. Such beauty products do not help the skin to recover, do not accelerate the process of cell metabolism and do not stimulate protein growth, preventing the breakdown of collagen during sleep.

Creams containing petroleum jelly, mineral oils and liquid paraffins can especially harm the skin of women after 40 years. These components are oil refining products, they are resistant to oxidation, therefore prolong the shelf life of the products. But their main disadvantage is the obstacle to the evaporation of moisture. Of course, you should not be afraid of all creams that contain these components, the main thing is that they do not have a large concentration in the composition of the product. 

Hard cleansers

At the end of the day, it is absolutely not necessary to leave makeup on the face, as this can lead to contamination of the pores and the appearance of various inflammations, and with reduced regeneration, these inflammations will take place more slowly and are more likely to cause significant damage to the skin. The first thing to do is to clean the dermis from makeup and excess dirt. After 40, this process requires delicacy, so aggressive makeup removers will only harm the skin. 

To remove decorative cosmetics, you can use hydrophilic oil, which is intended for gentle cleansing, but with age-related skin after it, it is necessary to use cleansing foams to remove the remaining layer of oily elements. With sensitive, thin and problematic dermis, if you do not use such soft-type products after hydrophilic oil, a film that will not be washed off with water and will have the effect of a mask that clogs the pores.

Massage

It is often possible to hear about the effective effect of massage, but unfortunately its result does not have such a strong and fast result as expected from it. This procedure is not able to completely smooth out facial wrinkles and restore youth to the skin of the face. It is worth noting that massage can relieve signs of fatigue and helps to keep the skin in good tone. However, it will not be possible to achieve a rejuvenating effect, due to the fact that no one can change biological processes.

In order to achieve a lifting effect, instant improvement of turgor and skin relief, it is better to try the PQAge peeling system. It is an original TCA complex and helps to renew collagen without stress for the dermis. And the most pleasant thing is that a noticeable result can be achieved after the first procedure.

Patches

The area around the eyes is one of the most delicate and vulnerable parts on the face, so it requires special attention. It is in this zone that the first age-related facial wrinkles begin to appear, which, with improper care, can very quickly become deep.

Patches are considered one of the most popular products for the eye area. They are widely popular and are often credited with incredible results, but the effect of them is not at all rejuvenating. In most cases, the cause of bags and bruises under the eyes is lack of sleep. Patches also help to moisturize the skin, slightly remove the manifestations of swelling and fatigue. But this effect is short-term and it does not solve, but only masks the problem. Botox showed a good result in the fight against facial wrinkles.

You can look young and fresh even after 40, because beauty does not go anywhere. The main thing is to choose high-quality products and pay attention to the presence of petroleum jelly, oils and liquid paraffin in the composition. If they are not the main components, and all other substances will favorably affect the dermis and will not cause allergies, then you can safely add such products to the cosmetic bag. But the most important thing is not to forget that the real beauty is hidden inside us, and you can show it with a simple sincere smile.
