1. Get on the Antioxidant Express
Now is a good time to start incorporating an array of antioxidants into both your skin care and your diet. Antioxidant skin care, composed of ingredients such as retinoids or pro-retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C, green tea and Vitamin E, are all excellent in helping to achieve your best complexion. You should also enjoy antioxidants in your diet in the form of leafy greens, fresh fruit, lean meats and fish.
2. SPF Always
You probably hear this a lot — SPF is crucial. While we’re sure you lather up when you’re in the sun, it’s important to wear SPF, every single day. Any type of sun exposure even on a cloudy day can damage your skin. New research suggests that even the light from computer screens can cause damage on your skin. Protect yourself every day and look for products that have a broad spectrum SPF.
3. Wear a Sleeping Cream
Sleeping creams are a fairly new, but revolutionary product. You apply them after cleansing to help lock in helpful ingredients and work on your skin overnight. You’ll wake up with gorgeous, fresh skin with minimal effort, all you have to do is apply it and go to sleep. Try adding this to your skin care routine before you turn 40 so that you have the perfect weapon against fatigued skin.
