What’s go­ing on? This might be the era where your ca­reer gets well and truly es­tab­lished but un­for­tu­nately so do a few other things, such as your wrin­kles and pig­men­ta­tion from too many years of sun ex­po­sure. ‘Most of my pa­tients in their 40s want to tackle a dull com­plex­ion, skin lax­ity around the mouth, cheek and jaw area and deep wrin­kles in ar­eas of repet­i­tive ex­pres­sion such as the fore­head, brows, and crows feet,’ says Preema.

What to do: It’s easy to take your foot off the gas when it comes to your skin­care, but con­sis­tency and con­ti­nu­ity are key for mak­ing any real kind of change to your com­plex­ion so keep at it. And one of the best in­gre­di­ents that will help your 40-year-old skin do this is gly­colic acid. ‘Gly­colic is a fan­tas­tic resur­fac­ing in­gre­di­ent. Im­prove­ments in age­ing, hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion, acne, and other con­di­tions can be seen with ap­pro­pri­ate resur­fac­ing, es­pe­cially if com­bined with other in­gre­di­ents tar­get­ing the other pro­cesses in­volved in the cause of the in­di­vid­ual con­di­tions,’ ex­plains Preema. It’s al­ways best to use gly­colic acid ex­fo­liants in the evening so your skin isn’t ex­posed to sun as it peels away the top sur­face, avoid­ing the eye area. Treat this with a light­weight, wrin­kle plump­ing eye cream in­stead. And make sure you treat your skin to a mas­sively hy­drat­ing mois­turiser, con­tain­ing SPF, the next day.
