You’re in your fabulous 40s. You’re prepping to make some changes in your skin care. You may notice the sudden onset of little brown spots caused by your early days of soaking up the sunshine, or hormonal fluctuations causing skin sensitivity or breakouts. There’s a lot of information out there—dare we say too much? The most helpful info will come from real 40-year-olds like you. So we investigated the top ranked Google searches and compared them with our countless daily phone calls in order to debunk some myths to get you your best skin possible.
Myth: Natural Skincare Isn’t Worth the Price Tag
Natural skincare is a hot topic these days and there’s no question that the leap is worth taking. Simply put: You’ve earned it, and as Tata likes to say, “natural is the ultimate luxury.” Exposure to the environment, stress, and the general process of aging has left you wanting more for your skin in your 40s and you deserve results without expense to your health. Invest in yourself, and invest in knowledge: Know exactly what you’re using, and choose ingredients that promote the health of your skin by encouraging cell renewal and maintaining balance instead of quick fixes that work to cover up your natural radiance.
Myth: Age Spots Won’t Happen Until I’m 40
The not so fun fact with age spots is we can get them at any age. They appear on our skin due to exposure to the environment and UV light. Yes, they do increase with age, but someone who is 20 is just as likely to see them pop up at someone who is 50. Luckily, these pesky dark spots are able to be lightened with the right products. Our Concentrated Brightening Essence and Concentrated Brightening Serum use sea fern to even skin tone and help reduce the size and appearance of dark spots up to 75%.
Myth: You’ll Outgrow Acne
This is probably the most disappointing myth. You can get pimples at any age. Major buzzkill, right? Use products formulated to help prevent and treat blemishes, and they’re manageable. Even better, gone or the days where your only option is a harsh, drying, mysterious formula. Check out our Clarifying duo.
Myth: Regimens Don’t Make A Difference
Your regimen is key to maintaining a youthful glow and healthy skin. Cleanse every night, whether you’re wearing makeup or not. Find the right regimen. And call us if you need help.
Myth: You Should Change Your Regimen Every Few Months
When you first start using a new regimen that matches you perfectly, you watch your skin improve daily. All of sudden, you stop seeing those changes. Did your carefully crafted regimen stop working? No! Your skin is just happy! Your skin will even out with the right products and give you that lasting glow every day. Introduce new products as your skin needs it, but don’t change things up just for the sake of change.
Myth: I Don’t Need A Serum, I Have A Moisturizer
You use a moisturizer, why would you need a serum? Can’t a moisturizer be used for everything, including around the eyes? No. A moisturizer is essential to keeping your skin soft and supple, but it won’t have the age-defying properties a serum will have. Layer the high concentration of powerful ingredients directly on your skin! Then add the moisturizer to lock in all the serum’s active ingredients and help to shield your skin from the environment. Eye creams fall in the same category. They are formulated for the delicate skin around your eye and address issues such a dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines that a moisturizer doesn’t. For max results, use all three together.
Myth: People Exaggerate The Importance For Hydration
Untrue. Hydration is vital for keeping your skin at its best. It helps to smooth fine lines and maintain a plump, youthful appearance. Look out for star ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid to nourish your skin at a cellular level.
