Age 40: Look as young as you feel!
“Why is my skin
showing signs of age?”
From 40 onward — cellular renewal slows, collagen fibers breakdown. The result: wrinkles deepen, radiance fades and skin begins to sag. Help prevent “programmed” aging with formulas that strengthen skin’s architecture by lifting, firming and toning on every level.
“I take care of my skin!”
At night, while you sleep, cellular regeneration is most intense. While all is calm, products are more easily diffused throughout the skin tissues. At age 40, it’s especially important to include an anti-ageing night cream in your beauty ritual. Clarins has firming formulas that lift, tone and reduce visible signs of aging, so you wake up looking rested and refreshed.
“Are there anti-aging
treatments for the eye area?”
Eyelids and eye contours are extremely fragile, and among the first places to show signs of aging, including puffiness, dark circles and crow’s feet. Focus on this vulnerable skin, morning and evening, by using a targeted firming and smoothing eye treatment.
“Wrinkle in your day?”
Wrinkles appear due to the cumulative effects of natural and circumstantial aging factors: sun, pollution, smoking, stress, harsh climates, compromised health. Targeted skin care solutions can minimize existing wrinkles, and keep new ones from forming.
Maintaining a beautiful neck is key to prolonging a youthful look, so use a targeted treatment for this delicate area each day. Smooth-on a lifting and firming product from neckline to chin. Give equal time to the fragile skin on your hands. Before bedtime, massage-on a nourishing hand cream — from fingertips and nails, to just above the wrists — as if you were putting on gloves.
Watch Out: Sun!
Avoid prolonged sun exposure, and beware its skin-aging rays. Apply a high SPF sun cream — even on cloudy days, or if you’re sitting in the shade.
Firm up, all over!
Up, down. Up, down. Dieting confuses skin, resulting in dimples, slackening and loss of elasticity. Time to stand firm, with specific beauty care products for bust and body.
Tone-up your arms!
In addition to regular exercise, massage your arms, from wrists to shoulders, using a firming body oil. Clarins’ aromatic, 100% pure plant extracts get the job done with spa-like efficiency.
Fill-in fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and imperfections by using Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch under your foundation.
“How can I make my skin smooth, uniform and foundation-ready?”
Go for glam !
At 40 you assert yourself and dare to be glamorous. Easy to pull-off with smoky eyes, well-defined lips and a high-quality complexion.
Opt for a foundation that is rich in firming and anti-aging ingredients which, in addition to providing perfect make-up results, will help maintain your skin’s youthful appearance.
