Having developed an appropriate routine of cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, and using anti-aging products while in their 30's, it is now time for women in their forties to improve upon this routine. For those who have yet to invest in an anti-aging formula, now is the time to purchase alpha hydroxy acids and retinol products, which stimulate collagen production.

As women age, not only does their skin reduce collagen and firmness, but skin type tends to change too. Typically, the skin starts to lose its moisture, so it may be time to re-evaluate skin type and opt for products meant for drier skin. When it comes to cleansers and moisturizers for dry skin, creamy is the key word.

One thing that doesn't change is acne. Hormonal changes can cause acne to rear - literally - its unflattering head. Adult acne may require a visit to a specialist, as other conditions can easily be mistaken for acne. Adult acne could indicate a gynecological problem. It's also easy to mistake acne for rosacea, which is a skin condition marked by redness, swelling, and bumps, typically resembling pimples. In order to be treated properly for the condition, a dermatologist must make the diagnosis.

Natural makeup is perfect for women in their forties, as heavier makeup can make women look older. For example, a heavy foundation and powder looks caked on and finds its place in the creases of wrinkles, highlighting the fine lines. When choosing colors, go with neutral hues, like lighter blush - varieties of peach and light rose - and light colored eye shadows. Natural makeup truly provides a beautiful and youthful appearance.

Chemical peels are one option to rejuvenate the skin. By applying a solution to the face, the skin peels off to reveal a new layer that looks fresh and has fewer wrinkles. There are several chemical peels which include glycolic acid peel (AHA peel) and the more powerful Trichloroacetic Acid Peel (TCA peel), and Jessner's Peel. At home peels can also be effective for removing dead skin and revitalizing the complexion.

Many swear by Botox, or botulinum toxin type A. It's known for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Women, and more recently men praise its magical anti-aging effects. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscle - injecting a short-term wrinkle antidote to the respective area. However, just like any newer procedure, there are mixed results about the effectiveness of Botox, so it is important to talk to a dermatologist about any treatment before beginning.
