OUR TOP THREE TIPS FOR LOOKING YOUNGER AT 40

  1. Maintain a daily skincare regime with an anti-ageing day cream that contains Q10 and creatine to replenish your skin.
  2. Apply a hydrating anti-aging cream at night to boost your skin’s natural hydration levels.
    Your skin is more receptive to moisture at night and an anti-ageing moisturiser can help to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep.    
    We recommend NIVEA’s Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Night Face Cream.
  3. Increase your water consumption, and decrease intake of diuretics like caffeine and alcohol, to help restore decreasing hydration levels.

  1. Menopause – most women go through menopause between the ages of 47 and 53 it can result in some adverse effects on the skin.
