Joining the over 40 crowd is a badge of honor.  You are now at an age that you know who you are and what you want out of life.  You have earned your lines, wrinkles, and age spots and should wear them with pride.  Wait! What?  Back up a minute here!  Being over 40 brings wisdom and knowledge but you don’t have to look wizened.  There are skin care advances that give you the opportunity to look younger and more vibrant.

1. Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy devices such as the [Link Removed] incorporate red and infrared LED (light emitting diodes) to promote a younger and refreshed complexion.  They use very specific nanometer ranges to simulate collagen and elastin synthesis, increase cellular energy, heal, repair, renew, and regenerate.  Both of these systems are FDA cleared, simple to use, feel great, and extremely effective.

2. Microcurrent Facials
Microcurrent tools such as the [Link Removed] use small electrical currents to rejuvenate the skin.  These currents stimulate the underlying muscles helping to tone, strengthen, and lift them.  Placing the device strategically on the face helps to give the face a younger contour.  The results are not as dramatic as a face lift, but the Tua Viso offers an alternative for those that are not ready or never plan to go under the knife.

3. Anti-Aging Ingredients
Skin care ingredients such as vitamin A (retinol), vitamin C, peptides, and growth factors have the ability to rejuvenate and de-age the skin.  Vitamin A increases collagen production and cellular renewal which over time will help to diminish the signs of aging.  This ingredient should be worn at night because when exposed to the sun it can create free radicals and cause sun sensitivity.  Growth factors are a great alternative for those of you whose skin just can't tolerate vitamin A products.  It's gentler on the skin but makes a great anti-aging ingredient.  Vitamin C is a wonderful daytime treatment as it protects the skin from free radical attacks and increases collagen production.  Peptides have been shown to also stimulate collagen synthesis as well as decreasing the depth of existing wrinkles.

4. Sunscreen
Today's sunscreen is not the same as that thick goopy stuff we used to use as kids.  Advances in this category have made it simple for you to protect your skin daily.  Products such as Suntegrity BB Cream feel great and do an amazing job of improving the appearance of the skin.  

Being over 40 doesn't mean you have to look your age.  You can embrace this time in your life and look fabulous doing it!  Skin care doesn't have to feel overwhelming or daunting.  These tools make it easy to treat your skin and get a more youthful complexion.
