40 Something Skincare

One of the first things you notice in your 40’s is recovery time takes longer than it did in your youth. So, the best plan of attack for both your diet and skincare regimen is to call in reinforcements!

VITAMIN C should be one of the first ingredients you add to your routine.  It helps with healing, hydration, antioxidants, and pigmentation! Some foods that have been found to contain the most Vitamin C include guava, bell pepper, and kiwifruit. For the direct application of Vitamin C to the skin, there is a variety of choices.  Dr. Wright has over 20 skincare products which utilize Vitamin C. Our MULTI-VITAMIN VINO TONER, formulated with potent Vitamin C and the super-anti-oxidants, Pomegranate, Grape Seed Extract, and Resveratrol repairs skin and fortifies the skin against damage. If you have not used a toner, now is an excellent time to start!

PIGMENTATION is likely to become more of an issue in your 40’s. If you are looking for a skincare product specifically designed to reduce pigmentation, Dr. Wright’s RADIANCE is a specialty serum, designed to lighten skin pigment with daily application. In just 8 weeks you will start to see real results glowing through!

For deeper skin pigmentation, you may want to try something more advanced and begin in-office procedures. Call us for a consultation, to talk about what treatments we can use to be more aggressive with your pigmentation concerns.

DON’T FORGET YOUR NECK! Even though your face might be looking fabulous, it is worthless if you’re aged by your neck! Start bringing your facial products down onto your neck. The products you should be using include a moisturizer, antioxidants, and sunscreen. The skin is thinner in the neck area and can drink up moisturizers easily. One of our best selling Vitamin C products is our REHYDRATION COMPLEX with VITAMIN C.  The powerful blend of Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Aloe Vera creates a gel-based formula which applies evenly, leaves no oily residue, and provides extra-healing capabilities and intense hydration. Lastly, before applying any makeup, do not forget your sunscreen which should be used on any visible skin, including the neck and face.

With just these few simple steps your Forties will be Fabulous! Enjoy!
