8 Skin Care Essentials You Need in Your 40's

This post is brought to you by USANA. All opinions are 100% my own. I wouldn't share anything with you if I didn't love it. Promise.

It's a big year for me. I'm turning 40. I've spent a lot of my adulthood putting other things in front of my skin care routine. I've been busy raising {and now launching} kids, volunteering in my community and starting my own business. All of life is hitting me as I enter into {dare I say it?} middle age. What was something I once neglected because I didn't think I had the time, {or maybe I thought I had plenty of time,} has left me without much of a skin care routine in place. I used to get away with the basics like using a daily moisturizer, maybe you did too, but I'm finding as women claw deeper into adulthood, those basics just aren't cutting it anymore. Which is why I put together 8 skin care essentials you need in your 40's. 
I've been working my way into a good skin care routine with all eight of these in the past few months, and I've noticed a definite difference in the way my skin looks. Heck, I even spend more days going without makeup now than I did when I was in my twenties. We've seen a lot of life my friends and our skin has been exposed to a lot of things, but not to worry, it's not too late to get started! Those of us with more {ahem} experienced skin, just need to have a multi-faceted approach to our skin care routine. I think I've got all the secrets so you are covered!

Eight Skincare Products You Need in Your 40's

Start your Skin Care Routine with a Good Cleanser

1. Conditioning Makeup Remover

So I'm going to duck right now, but in all my years of life, I've never washed my face before going to bed at night. I had really clear skin during my teen years so I never got into the habit. I just sleep in my make-up. I know, cardinal sin number 219. 

Try: Celavive Conditioning Makeup Remover

I found that Celavive Conditioning Makeup Remover is perfect at dissolving even the toughest long-wear and waterproof makeup and it leaves my skin feeling soft. 

2. Face Cleanser

Maybe I'm the only one that hasn't been washing my face all these years, but, if you are like me, it's important to not only wash off your makeup, but to get rid of the dirt and oil from the exposure of the day. Plus, no one wants clogged pores and acne as we enter into our second act, so girl, WASH YOUR FACE! 

Try: Celavive Gentle Milk Cleaner

I love that after I remove my makeup, this gentle milk cleaner removes all the dirt and impurities while locking in your skin's natural moisture. 

Follow up Clean Skin with a Good Toner

3. Toner

Most dermatologists will say that toner is the secret weapon of your skin care routine. Not only will it give you extra cleansing, but it will also help give the appearance of smaller pores and restore your skin's pH balance. Plus, it can leave your skin feeling refreshed and moisturized. 

Try: Celavive Perfecting Toner

Not only does the Celavive Perfecting Toner purify your complexion and help balance your pH levels to create beautiful skin, but it prepares your complexion to get the maximum benefits of your moisturizer and other skin care treatments you may be using. 

Enhance the Effects of Your Skin Care Routine

4. Hydrating Eye Cream

It's time to focus in on those dark circles, fine lines and the puffiness we are prone to as we age. As you get older, you need a specific cream formulated for the very delicate skin around your eyes. Not only do you want to prevent signs of aging around your eyes, but you want to hydrate and smooth those fine lines too.

Try: Celavive Hydrating Eye Essence

Celavive Hydrating Eye Essence brightens, lifts, softens and de-puffs your look with a lightweight formula designed to improve the delicate skin around your eyes. 

5. Try a Face Serum

It's important to use a face serum that can help you rejuvenate and protect your skin in your 40's. Many people skip this step thinking it's no different than a face moisturizer, but a serum will contain a higher concentration of active ingredients that will go beyond the benefits of a daily moisturizer. 
A face serum can help fix any of those problem areas you have in your skin that you've been using makeup to cover, which is why I'm finding myself makeup free more and more now. 

Try: Celavive Vitalizing Serum

This Vitalizing Serum supports your skin's natural renewal processes with a breakthrough, water-based formula. It's got a high concentration of active ingredients including natural botanicals and powerful peptides that will leave your with dramatically younger-looking skin.

6. Hydrating Sheet Mask

Who doesn't love a little luxurious spa treatment fun in the comfort of their own home? I love spending an evening in, watching some TV and doing some self care from painting my nails to using a sheet mask. Sheet masks are all the rage right now and rightly so. They are a great way to treat your skin to high-quality ingredients in a more concentrated treatment.

Try: Hydrating + Lifting Sheet Mask

I love this new Celavive sheet mask because I can treat my skin to intense hydration that leaves me with a more youthful-looking, radiant complexion. Not only does it have more of the signature botanicals this line is known for, but it hydrates, lifts, firm and smooths the appearance of tired-looking skin. And really, by the time you are in your 40's aren't we all just a little bit perpetually tired-looking?

Hydrate, Hydrate and then Hydrate Some More!

The key to a successful skin care routine is based in a consistent day and night routine. 

7. Use a Day Cream with SPF

Start the day with a protective day cream that includes sun protection. 

Try: Celavive Protective Day Cream SPF 30

Not only does Celavive Protective Day Cream have SPF that will help defend against harmful UVA/UVB rays that can lead to signs of early aging, it also has a rich moisturizer in a luxurious cream that will give you that hydrated radiant glow everyone is after right now.

8. Use a Night Cream

After washing the makeup and cleansing your skin at night, it's important to get your skin prepped for your beauty rest. Why not make sure you have a cream that's working around the clock for you? 

Try: Celavive Replenishing Night Cream

I love the Celavive Replenishing Night Cream because it hydrates my skin and leaves it looking radiant with a rich, luxurious blend of natural botanicals and peptides that fight the appearance of wrinkles and restore the youthful look of my complexion overnight.
I've been really impressed with the whole line of Celavive products and saw results in the first day or two of using them, which has made it easier to establish a skin care routine that seems to have been missing in my life for decades. If you are like me, these are the 8 essential skincare items you need in your 40's. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
