This is where you might start to see slight changes in your skin as you start to lose collagen. You might notice some tiny fine lines or some sun damage.
You still need to be using the three basic products of
Good quality Cleanser
Broad Spectrum Physical SPF
if you haven’t been including these in your skincare regime you definately need to start using them now. You really need to be stimulating collagen by using Vitamin A (Retinol) and protect the skin from UV damage to prevent free radical and UV damage to the skin.
It would be sensible to now introduce an Antioxidant serum such as Vitamin C, this would work well with your Retinol as they compliment each other. Vitamin C brightens the skin, calms inflammation and is a vital ingredient in collagen production so as the skin is now losing more collagen we need to help it to replace this. We also have a combined Vitamin C and Vitamin E serum which also compliment each other as the vitamin E makes the vitamin C 4x more effective.
You may also notice that the skin is a little drier so introducing a serum or moisturiser with Hyaluronic acid in will help to draw water into the skin, plumping it and keeping the hydration levels up.
A gentle exfoliation would be good as it removes dead skin cells, brightens the skin and hydrates the skin. this would only be needed 1-2 times a week.
If you are noticing any ageing around the eyes then now would be a great time to introduce a good quality peptide rich lightweight eye cream. this delicate area has some of the thinnest skin on the face so is quick to show ageing or signs of dehydration.
