Skin care after 40

What you do when you are 20 will take care of your skin at 40.

1. Protect your skin from the sun do not tan!!!! 85% of all skin ageing occurs due to sun exposure. Hats and sun screen. The Edwardian ladies with their parasols had it right.

2. Drink 8 glasses of water a day 8 ounce glasses. You moisturize your skin from the inside and so drinking water is the best way to hydrate your skin.

3. Don’t smoke.

4. Eat right.

5. Drink booze in moderation. These life time habits will give you great skin.

Sure keeping skin clean and moisturizing are great but there is no miracle skin cream. It is all down to genetics and good habits.

Let me add, wear big sunglasses even in the pool, ocean, ask Jeannie she will tell you barely crows feet at 56.  She looks fabulously too for 49 again.

We were obsessed with skin care in our teens and 20’s, and it’s something we carried on in our lives. We want to pass this on to you.

No tanning beds on a regular basis

I know, I did it before and worked part-time in a salon in my 30’s. Apply sunblock throughout your day; I love those spray on.  You will still get color without the nasty burn.  The older you get it hurts more. Trust me OMG; gravity is not kind.

I got an idea, we need a video on facial exercises  This looks like fun!
