Your Guide to The Best Skin Care Products For Your 40s & Beyond
Ageing is a natural part of life, and it's something that should be embraced and celebrated. But, your skin can take a dramatic turn once you have reached the 40s with its onset of hormonal changes. Fine lines, discolouration, wrinkles and dryness are just a few of the changes the skin may experience, and this can be frustrating. Fortunately for you, using the best Australian-made skincare products for women over 40 directly targets these changes.
Why You Need Skin Care Products Formulated for Women Over 40
Your skin changes as you age, so the products you used while in your teens, 20s and even your 30s won't work for you as you move towards and beyond 40.
Many women will notice their skin will start to become drier from their mid-40 to late-40s as they approach menopause. It's not in your imagination - estrogen levels taper off, causing your skin to become more dehydrated.
The sun can create more havoc on your skin as you get older, triggering hyperpigmentation, and it's normal for skin to noticeably lose elasticity.
And while we undoubtedly love life in our 40s -there's a liberating confidence, and the old saying that our 40s are the new 30s is true! - we also know that it's a time when many women look to address the signs of ageing that often appear at this stage.
It's all about adapting our skincare routine to suit what our skin requires NOW. Keep reading for the best skincare products for your 40s.

What Are The Best Skincare Products For Over 40s?
To give your skin the best health and a beautifully vibrant complexion, consider the international award-winning organic skincare products made in Australia by Indagare Natural Beauty.
Once you are past 40, the priority often becomes maintaining skin's youthful vibrancy and glow. Our award-winning Illumino Youth Serum is gentle enough to be used on all skin types, including sensitive. Although 100% natural, the results people experience from Illumino Youth Serum are truly skin-transformative, thanks to the world's best quality, certified organic and ethically sourced prickly pear seed oil. Boasting vast amounts of vitamin E, which works to prevent oxidative damage to cells by helping fight free radicals while softening and moisturising the skin, prickly pear seed oil is also rich in betalains - a potent antioxidant -which works to stop the formation of wrinkles. Prickly pear seed oil's high vitamin K levels are extraordinary for fighting hyperpigmentation. (Bonus tip: vitamin K is also great for diminishing under-eye dark circles and spider veins!). We also add a touch of skin-firming, brightening neroli and a hint of geranium to balance the skin.
