Top Skin Concerns of Women in 30s and 40s

What I have found to be true is that women feel good about their skin while still in their 30s.  Around the age of 40 self doubt begins to find it way in.  Most women feel they are at their best skin condition in their 20s.  Even though their is that concern at 40 by the time women hit the age 50 they embrace the notion of beauty at any age.

Fine Lines are the #1 concern

30 and 40 year old both agree that fine lines are their biggest worry.  The key to addressing this concern for 30 and 40 year olds is prevention.  Antioxidants have to a major part of a regimen used for prevention.  The the skin cells must be protected from damage done by free radicals.Antioxidants are key to the process.  Our bodies produce some antioxidants but we primarily gain this from external sources.  A diet of  fruits, vegetables, and grains along with topical antioxidants like vitamin C. These sources  have a proven track record of protecting your skin cells.

A good antioxidant serum that I recommend is Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum ($30).  This serum is 10% pure vitamin C.  A bottle of this serum has as much vitamin C as 30 oranges.  Those free radicals do not stand a chance.  

I also recommend amino acids, the building blocks of the body.  The Anew Vitale Radiance Regimen ($82 Value), is a great choice over time it decreases fine lines, restoring elasticity and radiance.

Sensitive, Allergy-prone Skin

About one-third of women in their 30s have some skin sensitivity or allergies to topical products.  In my experience this means while in your 30s you may need to rethink your assumption about your skincare.  It is important to learn what your skin likes and what will not work.  I had a customer who thought see had dry skin  but in actuality her skin was just dehydrated, but actually a normal skin type.

The many great products formulated for sentive skin.  It is important that the producr had vitamin D which will sooth irritated skin.  Almost 50% of people in theur 30s report acne.  I really alot of these people suffer from break out because of senitivity or things like not washing off the make-up daily.   In the case of real acne products may not be the answer, blue light therapy is the way to go, in my humble opinion.  The wavelenghts of blue light enters the skin which produces singlet oxygen whch can destroy the bacteria that caues acne.

Hyerpigmentation is a Major Concern

In the 40s arounf half are concerned about hyperpigmentation.  Before wrinkles set in the skin may become very uneven.  This is a manifestation of the damage done by the sun.  Over exposure to UV causes hyperpigmentation, more melanin is produced to protect the skin, asorbing the UV keeping the skin from burning.  The overproduction of melanin then results in age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmntation.  There are some great topical actives that are dark spot faders.  

My Thoughts

When I hit my 40s I began ti notice the signs of aging.  I then researched I had a budget to stick so I wanted great products that have value.  I tried Avon anew products, and fell in love.  I have a regimen that works great for me.  I cleanse, treat and moisturize.  You must find whats right for your skin you can ask the skincare advisor.

In this study they  identified four different categories of wrinkles. Th


Underwear that Fits Correctly ARTICLE: There is one very easy trick to making all your clothes look good (even when you’re wearing your own 34-year-old Duran Duran t-shirt – the oldest piece of clothing I own by a very, very long way). That number 1 trick? Get your underwear right. Oh, I can’t tell you how many years I spent wearing the wrong kind of underwear. The wrong size bra, ill-fitting knickers, the wrong  shape  bras… I’ve learnt a new trick just recently – but first, that t-shirt! My original Duran Duran Seven and the Ragged Tiger tour t-shirt is mine –  from 1983 . I cannot tell you how happy I am to be wearing my most treasured t-shirt and oldest item in my wardrobe, an item I thought until recently was most probably lost. I knew I hadn’t deliberately got rid of it, I just knew I’d put it somewhere ‘safe’ (that old chestnut!) and I’d been looking for it for years.

Vitamins Needed for Healthy Skin

Research suggests that some vitamins might play a key role in skin health. In many cases, these vitamins are most effective when a person applies them directly to the skin. Following a healthful, balanced diet that is free of vitamin and nutrient deficiencies may improve skin health by boosting overall health. Vitamin A Many multivitamins contain 100 percent or more of the recommended daily intake of  vitamin A . Other  good sources of vitamin A  include carrots, dark leafy green vegetables,  sweet potatoes , and  eggs . Retinoids, including retinol, tretinoin, isotretinoin, and similar chemicals, are manufactured forms of vitamin A. B-complex vitamins Several  B-complex vitamins  may improve skin health. The water-soluble vitamins are readily available as supplements, including as supplements that include all 12 B-complex vitamins. Research into the role of vitamin B-complex supplements is promising, though inconclusive. A  2018 study  found that vitam
