Want Ageless Beauty After 40?

You gaze at your face in the mirror - those fine lines and wrinkles are creeping up -  and that 5x magnifying glass doesn’t help matters! Yes, it’s part of aging but how about finding ways to age gracefully while still embracing your appearance.


As you enter perimenopause and menopause, your estrogen levels decrease leading to less oil production in our sebaceous glands – which leads to more dryness.  In addition, collagen levels decrease by 30% leading to more fine lines and wrinkles.  What are some ways to help your skin as you enter into these years to look young and still authentic?

Luckily, I’ve investigated this topic and found the 6 best tips to maintain your ageless beautiful skin.  All of the recommendations are for products that contain no parabens, are cruelty-free and cGMP accredited.


  • Increase the amount of moisturizer you use and make sure that it contains a higher oil-water ratio than your previous moisturizer.  Adding moisture to skin cells makes them expand, improving skin volume and texture.  I advise that you moisturize 2 x /day, morning and night to protect your skin from environmental factors like heat, dryness and pollution that undermine your skin’s health.  My favorite moisturizer is CeraVe.



  • Use a gentle cleanser – harsh cleansers will strip your skin of its natural oil production. My recommendation is Belli Skincare Pure and Pampered Body Wash. 

  • Be patient: As you age, your skin may also become more sensitive to certain products - be sure to test out various options and individualize your skincare routine. What has worked for you years ago may not be the best for you now. 

  • Use broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Doing this in your 40’s and 50’s will make your skin in your 70’s so much happier!  Badger Clear Zinc Sunscreen SPF40.

  • Use a retinol cream to increase collagen production, even out dark spots, and help smooth your skin. Be sure to apply this at night-time as it increases the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. BioBare Revivify contains 5% pure retinol, natural oils and ceramides.  Does not contain colorants or fragrances.

  • Hydrate- Both your skin and body need adequate hydration! Remember to drink at least ½ of your body weight in ounces of water/day.  Add 20-30 ounces more if you’re doing strenuous exercise.
