This is 40. Now that your skin has settled from the “transitional phase” of aging to the early “physical effects” of aging, changes to the tone and texture of your skin, which are inclusive of the result of years intrinsic and extrinsic factors, are starting to emerge. Dulling of the skin starts to set in and that healthy glow that is reminiscent of our teenage years is lost, partially because of decreased collagen and elastin that gets broken down by the natural aging process and due to outside elements.

A Dull Complexion

Why It’s Happening
As we age, the normal desquamation of our skin cells slows down, and our skin cells don’t shed as quickly in our 40s as they did when we were younger. This results in a build up of dead skin that sit on the surface, making skin look dull. Combine the lackluster cluster of dead skin cells with sun damage and the result is do-nothing skin.

Fix It
Since our skin’s ability to shed its own skin cells rapidly decreases as we age, regular exfoliation is a must. A gentle scrub a few times a week or a non-irritating retinol should be used regularly.

A series of LED and fractional resurfacing treatments can be done to stimulate collagen and restore skin’s healthy glow. Not only do they make skin look smoother and more even, but they also make fine lines and large pores less noticeable.

A Daily Dose of Retinol

Why A Retinoid Is A Must
No matter your age, using a retinoid or retinol cream nightly can make a world of difference in how your skin ages. Despite the current condition of your skin, be it seemingly perfect or extensively damaged, every 40-something woman should be using a retinoid. There is no other ingredient with the level of data that shows, over the years, your skin is going to more refined and age rather well. Retinoids help exfoliate skin and help regulate and even out pigmentation because as they resurface the skin. Additionally, retinoids are great for adult acne because they regulate oil and increase cell turnover to flush out the pores and reduce impactions that can lead to breakouts.

Age Spots

Why They’re Happening
The skin can’t repair itself nearly as well, or as fast, as it once did. Hyperpigmentation will start to surface, due to past sun exposure and trauma to the skin.
Fix Them With
Retin-A and antioxidants can help, but light and laser treatments like fractional CO2 can reduce the appearance of sun damage, and create a more even tone and smoother skin texture.

When spots are deeper and darker in color, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) works well because it destroys discoloration without causing any damage to skin.

The Start of Volume Loss
In your early 40s (and sometimes even in your 30s), the adipose layer may start to diminish from the cheeks, lips and under the eyes, which gives the face a tired or sunken look. As we age, the face loses the fullness that we associate with a youthful look. With the use of a hyaluronic acid filler, these areas can be reinflated, to how they looked years ago, helping you combat the effects of volume loss.
