Burn the candle at both ends for a few nights, and you may see it reflected in your face:

REACHING YOUR 40S: When you are in your 40s, your skin undergoes a lot of changes. Mainly your cell turnover almost reduces to half, and this is why you need to start caring for your skin a little differently than you are used to. This is when your fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing become more prominent, requiring you to be more mindful about what you put on your skin.


As you age, your skin’s sensitivity to the sun increases as well. As a result, it becomes quite imperative that you always wear SPF, and when in the sun for prolonged periods, wear a hat and don shades as well.

Day cream

SKINCARE TIPS: During the day, it is also extremely important to prevent any damage to the skin caused by those free radicals that your sunscreen can’t really block.  Use an antioxidant rich cream, such as the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Crème’, which replenishes and moisturises your skin, making it fairer and giving it an instant glow.

Night cream

It is quite important to choose a night cream that has anti-ageing benefits. Such creams help boost skin cells while also delaying the skin’s ageing process. The Pond’s Gold Radiance Youthful Night Cream’ is infused with precious real gold, as well as the vitamins A and B3, providing your skin with amazing anti-ageing benefits.


Exfoliating your skin helps remove dead skin cells and brings newer ones to the forefront, thereby causing your skin to look youthful and radiant. The ‘Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant’ provides your skin with a non-abrasive exfoliation treatment that stimulates cell renewal with the help of natural fruit enzymes by removing dead skin cells in order to improve skin texture.
