I’m quickly approaching 40 and my skin has shifted significantly over the previous five decades or so. I have noticed my pores getting larger, and my laugh lines have started to be defined. I have noticed this also for a number of my buddies, that I’ve had in my entire life for several decades. Believe it or not they continue to be only gorgeous in my eyes, despite those additional wrinkles.
Growing up I had been the one using the fairest of skins, so I would constantly get burnt when out from sunlight if I was not wearing sunscreen to guard myself. I’d go peel and red and then contact the lily white skin which was there earlier, albeit a small drier. I don’t advocate not having a SPF sunscreen nowadays on account of the skin cancer dangers, and frequently find myself searching around for the maximum SPF security available, to shield me and my skin from getting burnt. Do not prevent sunlight, as you will need the vitamin D for healthy skin also.
My skin remains lily white, and I’ve learnt the hard way that the sun really doesn’t like me that much. I was intended to maintain a nation that snows’ most of the year I think, and not in a country that is mostly sunny and has high UV.
I mean, what women in her late 30s is still getting up in the morning, looking in the mirror and staring at a nasty pimple? I think that not drinking enough water throughout the day hasn’t helped with this issue either. Noticing that personally, when I do drink my required 2litres of water a day my outbreaks are fewer.
Applying an all over body moisturiser helps my skin become less dry during the day, unfortunately the wrinkles will always appear, that’s just a part of growing older. We all need to deal with this one ladies! There are creams and lotions on the market today that may aide with ‘anti-aging’, but I’ve not used any case so I can’t comment on their efficacy, trying them out and giving them a move may be something which I would think about for healthier, smoother, younger looking skin care however.
