Fabulous 40’s- Putting Your Best Face Forward
Our skin changes throughout our lives. Old cells die off, new cells replace them, the body’s chemistry changes over time, there are so many factors involved which can change how we look on the outside.
When you hit your 40s, it’s not a whole lot different. Your skin changes- albeit indifferent, possibly more dramatic ways, and your skincare routine needs to change along with it.
Our 40’s is the time to get into hydration, big time. This is also the decade when you may benefit most from using antioxidant skin care products (LaFLore® Live Probiotic Daily-Defense Moisturizer literally has both of these qualities written all over it, by the way…)
Having a regular skincare routine is important at any age, of course, because a routine allows your skin to adjust to the products you’re using. LaFLore® has been developing our line of Live Probiotic products to support and nourish your skin at all ages, and following the routine we’ve strategically put together will keep your skin looking fabulous up to and well past your 40’s:
Our cleansing needs will change over time, but as we get into our 40’s, it’s critical to pay attention to what kind of cleanser we’re using. Clearing pores by neutralizing bacteria is paramount for keeping skin clear, which is why a probiotic cleanser is important, but now is the time we should be looking to do this gently. Choosing a gentle cleanser that will effectively remove bacteria without being too harsh or stripping the skin of its natural oils is key. LaFlore® Live Probiotic Cleanser uses live probiotics to rid the skin of bacteria without the use of chemicals that would strip skin of it’s natural, hydrating oils.
Exfoliation is essential, it removes dead skin cells which clog pores and dull the complexion. Exfoliating gently but effectively can be a challenge in our 40’s.
Again, our cleanser is designed to do precisely this. Active, all-natural key ingredients work to exfoliate gently as you cleanse (be sure to leave your cleanser on the skin for a few minutes, massaging gently to work it into pores).
This is quite possibly the most essential step in our skin care routine as we get through our 40’s. We need a moisturizer that can do double duty- hydrate and protect.
LaFLore® Live Probiotic Daily-Defense Moisturizer hydrates thoroughly to slow the development of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reduce the appearance of the ones we already have. All-natural ingredients also help to protect the skin from environmental stressors, which are one of the most significant contributors to premature aging of the skin.
Consider LaFloreⓇ Live Probiotic Serum as an extra tool in our toolbelt for giving our 40-something skin an extra shot of nutrients and hydration. Using natural ingredients like aloe and sea buckthorn, our serum is designed to soothe irritation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Live probiotics help to protect skin from damage and create a healthy biome.
Rose Water Spray
When you’re out and about during the day, environmental pollutants can start to take a toll on the skin. Rosewater spray is an excellent way to give your skin a little boost throughout the day. A little spritz serves as the perfect pick-me-up, especially on dry days.
Keeping a regular skincare routine into your 40s and beyond is vital, but it doesn’t have to be high-maintenance. Keeping a daily skincare ritual with just a few products full of high-quality, all-natural ingredients is often enough to keep your skin looking amazing at any age.
