Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective, does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

The older a woman is, the more changes occur to her skin. Turgor and elasticity are lost. As a result, wrinkles appear. Small and barely noticeable at first, then deep. Age 40 is considered critical. Around this period, the entire hormonal background changes. Estrogen levels begin to decline, and the skin sags, losing moisture. Therefore, it is so important at this stage to choose the right care products. The skin should receive intensive nourishment and hydration. And it can be done by using the right anti-aging cream that perfectly matches the skin's characteristics.

How to choose the right face cream after 40 years

Skin care after 40 years consists of cleansing, moisturizing and nourishing. Correctly selected milk, lotion or tonic will not only give you a good mood, but also partially protect against premature aging. But the main role in getting rid of the signs of aging is given to the cream. After all, it is he who aims to solve the main problems after 40 years: loss of turgor, the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, dull complexion. Such a purchase should be approached carefully. When choosing, you must be guided by the rules:

  1. Composition. You need to choose products with a natural composition. This will protect against unexpected allergies and give better results than artificial creams.
  2. Choose by age. Each age series adapts to the problems of a particular age. You should not use creams with a 40+ limit in your youth. This will not get rid of problems, on the contrary, it will create new ones.
  3. Skin type. You should look at the packaging, and understand what type of skin the product is intended for. For owners of oily skin, it is better to choose light cream with an anti-inflammatory effect. But ladies with dry – on the contrary, a more nutritious composition.
  4. The period of use. It is important to know what time of day to use the cream. After all, some act only during the day, while others fight wrinkles only at night.
  5. Quality. It is better to buy in trusted stores, paying attention to the expiration date. After all, expired products are harmful not only to the skin, but to the body as a whole.
