Are you over 40? These beauty tips will work wonders for you

Age is one thing that we cannot stop. As you age, your skin starts to change and let's be honest, it isn't easy to see yourself start becoming older. It's a lot easier to experiment with your style when you're a teenager but when you finally hit those 40s and 50s you've got to be certain about the things that suit you best. While this holds true for your sartorial and lifestyle choices, it also refers to your skincare ritual and routine. So, if you're wondering how you can continue looking youthful even when you've hit your 40s, here are some tips that will come to your aid. Take a look.

Prevent hollow eyes

The problem with hollow eyes is that no amount of makeup can help fix the issue. Which is why it's best to delay its occurrence as much as possible. Place a few tea bags in your chiller and let them chill. Once done take them out and place them on your eyes for about 20 minutes. They'll help ensure that the skin around your eyes stays film.

Say no to a sagging jawline

While makeup may help you achieve a gorgeous jawline, why not let it look that way naturally? Sit straight and then bring your chin down until you touch your neck. Next, lift your head back as far as you can. Keep repeating this exercise for a few minutes and you'll have a chiselled jawline in no time.

In recent times LED technology has taken over the skincare world. Turns out it has a ton of skincare benefits. Red light, in particular, triggers skin cells’ metabolism and boosts collagen production.

Use peptide rich skincare products

Take a closer look at the ingredient label when you’re stocking up on beauty products, and look for scrubs, essences, and lotions with skin-fortifying ingredients, particularly peptides. Ask any aesthetician and they’ll swear by the amino acids, essentially fragmented proteins. They’ll help skin become more resilient against any kind of attack—from pollution, cigarette smoke, or whatever irritants are lurking in the air.


06/16Try dermaplanning

Try dermaplanning

Dermaplanning is a skincare procedure that uses a surgical grade blade to remove dead skin cells, peach fuzz and encourage new skin cell turnover. While it may seem scary, it is a highly beneficial way to exfoliate skin while taking care of facial hair. Besides, it works wonderfully for people with dry skin, which is usually the case with women with mature skin.




Exfoliating your skin can help get rid of dead skin cells, dirt, grime, oil and any other types of pollutants from your skin. Owing to this, your skin ends up being squeaky clean and can thus look more radiant and beautiful.

Face masks can help hydrate your skin and keep it moisturised for long. Try to invest in a good hydrating face mask or make one yourself at home. Either way, it'll keep your skin looking youthful for long and will also slow down the signs of ageing.

Have a daily skincare routine

How much money do you spend on all those cosmetics? While they might work well for your skin, what works even better is to have a proper skincare routine that you can follow on a daily basis. Remember to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise and you'll end up with skin like never before.

Use an antioxidant serum

Vitamin C or E serums make great antioxidant serums. They help in keeping the harmful environmental particles away from skin. They also protect skin by fending off UVA and UVB rays and radicals. When layered under sunscreens, they make sunscreens more potent. Protecting skin from these environmental hazards can keep ageing at bay.
