Women in their forty's need to kick their anti-age defense into high gear and develop some beautiful new habits in skin care.
Forty Is Your New Twenty
Who has not heard it said that forty is the new twenty?
Take a good long look at the gravity defying figures and supple complexions of stars like Madonna and Demi Moore, and you just might be inclined to agree.
Women in their forties today are as fit and healthy as their twenty-something counterparts, with the added bonus of a comfort and love of their own skin that takes a few years to cultivate, and gives them a confidence and sensuality that you just can’t find at Forever 21.
Being fabulous at forty does’t just happen. Ideally, you’ve had a meticulous skin care regime in place since your teens, stayed out of the sun, and drunk enough water to fill Shamu’s swimming pool.
It's Not Too Late
If you’re coming late to that party, it’s time to kick your anti-age defense into high gear and develop some beautiful new habits!
An anti-oxidant rich, healthy diet and lots of exercise is good for body, spirit, and skin.
Gaining and losing weight can cause skin’s elasticity to break down and start to (gasp) sag, so maintaining a healthy, comfortable weight will definitely serve you as well.
Lots and lots of water keep your muscles and organs (and skin is an organ) hydrated and clean. When you think you’re ready to float away, have just one more glass.
Sunscreen and sun block have hopefully been your long-time companions.
If you’ve been neglectful, it’s never too late to start carrying a small, yummy-smelling bottle in your glove box or handbag.
There are many body lotions and facial moisturizers with SPF as well, but it never hurts to have a back up on hand.

Your lips are one of the driest and the most delicate parts of your face, and as you age they lose oil, collagen, and water. Daily protection with a lip balm containing SPF is a must.
