THE SKINCARE SOLUTION
“Soap and water just doesn’t cut it with 40s skin, so you must invest and buy really quality products and use them to help skin age gracefully,” says Pevonia educator Betty Gichimu. And even if you’ve not bothered with sunscreen before, it’s never too late to start preventing future sun damage and a dedicated anti-pigmentation serum or dark-spot concentrate can help reduce the appearance of sun damage you already have. Investing in a richer cleanser, serum, eye cream and moisturiser will also pay dividends. “Skin will need intensive antiageing treatment, which should also include targeted serums, on a daily basis,” says Betty. Oil-based cleansers to nourish as they clean, followed by face and eye creams rich in hyaluronic acid – which holds 1,000 times its own weight in water – will help to prevent loss of firmness, elasticity and moisture in the skin.
