By the time we reach the age of 40, we have increased the overall damage to our skin, because damage is cumulative. Around this time, we begin to see signs of aging become more distinct and visible. These signs include darker pigment spots, more prominent wrinkles and skin elasticity. Aside from skin exposure, gravity is a big factor when it comes to skin aging. Gravity is continuously pulling down on our skin and repetition of common facial expressions such as squinting, smiling or frowning can lead to early signs of skin laxity around the jaw and eyes.
Much like in our 30s, women and men face different skin concerns in their 40s. Pregnancy and hormone replacements in the peri-menopause stage can cause particular changes for women to struggle with. These changes include pigment irregularities, dry skin, and melasma. Melasma, which often occurs during pregnancy, is a discoloration of the skin that appears as dark brown or tan patches on the face. Dry facial skin occurs because of a notable decline in epidermal exfoliation. This causes thick layers of dry, dead skin cells to appear and to shed more slowly.
Maintaining a daily skin care routine that incorporates gentle and but thorough skin cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, and antioxidants restores normal skin and is essential to fighting signs of aging. Theraderm Skin Renewal System includes all of these things. Using this skincare system, twice a day, helps with signs of aging while maintaining and restoring beautiful, healthy skin. Chemical peels and other cosmetic in-office procedures provide additional help for skin damage.
