There’s something about hitting 40.
It makes no logical sense really, but it can feel daunting. You’re not that old but you’re not so young anymore either.
Those special occasion outfits you’ve kept from your twenties and early thirties are starting to not quite feel appropriate.
One minute you are in your 30’s, all of a sudden you feel like you’re on a one way ticket to being one of the Golden Girls.
As we age, our bodies change. Our skin is often one of the first places that really start to show our age.
Products that worked so well in our youth just don’t cut it anymore. That moisturiser you once loved starts feeling harsh, that cleanser seems to dry you out, things just aren’t the same as they used to be. All sorts of sensitivities can arise.
Sunshine, cold, humidity, moisture, laughter, tears, sugar, alcohol.
If you avoided all the things that you’re told visibly age you, you may as well stop living all together.
You can’t quit enjoying life just to keep yourself looking young, but you can create a skin routine that supports your skin and may help to reduce these natural side effects of living the thoroughly wonderful life you deserve.
Your skin needs a new strategy, but it can be frustrating and expensive testing out product after product when you’re not really sure what your skin needs.
In 27 years of dermatology practice Dr Lanzer has seen first hand the result of more products than you see in your average department store.
Different types of skin are of course unique, but there are a few vital elements that consistently aid our skin in the battle against signs of ageing, particularly as we get older.
With these base elements in your daily routine, your skin will surely thank you.
