It is said that life begins at forty and you will be in the prime of your life. However, skin changes fast during this decade and good skincare can make a real difference both now and in the future.
What’s happening to your skin
This is the stage where all the processes governing your skin-both face and body-start to slow down. But while you wouldn’t expect to have the peachiness of youth at forty something, you can still have lovely skin.
Generally, at this stage, women don’t experience a loss of subcutaneous fat-unless it‘s in your genes but you may notice less plump lips. Cell turnover is slowing down too, so the top layer of dead skin cells (Stratum Corneum, or horny layer) tends to become thicker and less bright. The big change is likely to be the breakdown of collagen, with a loss of elasticity. Bluntly, your skin is likely to become slacker, particularly around the jawline. Your body's skin may show signs of drooping too.
Menopausal changes typically start around 44, often bringing stress, poor (due to night sweats) and spotty outbreak in some women. Declining levels of Oestrogen, which keep skin moist, supple and soft, contribute to the skin dryness and lack of suppleness. Eyes may become drier too.
