In each decade of our life, our body needs specific care to look healthy and beautiful, just like our skin. With age, these cares increase, since both collagen and elasticity or firmness decrease. Therefore, we need a beauty routine that adapts to our new needsmuch more demanding than before.
According to Mary Kay experts, by age 20 there is a decline in antioxidant response, making the skin more susceptible to free radicals that attack and damage skin cells and collagen. While, at 30, the decrease in collagen is added (up to 1% per year!) and cell turnover begins to slow down as well.
Finally, at age 40, all these cell renewal processes slow down, the nutrients in the epidermis are reduced and the skin loses hyaluronic acid. The results? The complexion may lose its even tone and shine, we have a tired facewrinkles are marked more and the skin’s natural ability to maintain its barrier function decreases.
Aging is something completely natural and expected of the human being and against the “anti-aging” culture the “well-aging”. If you’re still unfamiliar with the term, Mar Sieira, creator of Sarah Becquer products, explains it perfectly: “It’s naturally accept the passing of time and do so with healthy skin, beautiful and in harmony. Instead of fearing changes, this concept advocates embracing them by taking care of the skin with the appropriate treatments to show its best version at any age”.
Treatments will be our greatest allies and for this reason Aura Serras, director of iS CLINICAL and RevitaLash Cosmetics and Marina López, wellness director of Las Caldas Villa Termal by Blau Hotels reveal to us 3 beauty routines and treatment focused on face, body and hair to bring out our best version.
Face: the importance of a good eye and lip contour
“In the face we must pay special care to the area around the eyes and lips, since they are the areas where the skin is thinner and more sensitive over time quickly reflecting the signs of aging such as crow’s feet or loss of hydration, shape and volume on the lips”, affirms Aura Serras, director of iS CLINICAL.
For this, it is essential a contour that hydrates the area well with great delicacyTherefore, those that contain hyaluronic acid in their formulation to maintain the skin’s barrier function and fill in small wrinkles are ideal.
“The area under the eyes is up to four times thinner than the rest of the skin of the face, this, added to the loss of firmness and density of the skin over time, causes dark circles to become much more marked and dark areas to appear. that give a tired and aged face appearance. I recommend the eye contour Youth Eye Complex by iSClinical (€126), since it works by filling in dark circles and hydrating the entire contour”, adds Serras.
Body: prioritize arms and abdomen
After the age of 40, localized fat in the arms and abdomen is a reality that haunts us and no matter how much we manage to do 20,000 sit-ups or undergo strict diets we cannot eliminate the flaccidity or accumulated fat in these areas. A technique that they recommend at Las Caldas Villa Termal by Blau Hotels is acupuncture.
“Acupuncture in expert hands is an effective and safe aging technique. The age where the effects will be more significant is after 40, which is when the damaging mechanisms begin to have a more noticeable effect on the cell and the fabrics”, explains Marina López, wellness director of Las Caldas Villa Termal by Blau Hotels.
The treatment is as follows: acupuncture needles are inserted into points related to the digestive system to balance the organs of the digestive system that are possibly causing a slowdown in metabolism and digestive disorders. In addition, acupuncture acts on the nervous system, the digestive system and the endocrine system and helps to maximize the absorption of nutrients, to reduce the sensation of appetite, to regulate the elimination of waste and to reduce constipation.
Hair: the focus on the eyebrows and eyelashes
“Hair is also another of the points to which we have to pay special attention once we reach 40, since this se thinner and begins to fall more frequently. My recommendation is the RevitaLash Cosmetics shampoo”, says Aura Serras.
According to the expert, it is “a unique shampoo to thicken and treat the scalp, which has specialized ingredients to optimize its health by cleaning and strengthening the hair while protecting it from environmental factors.”
“On the other hand, the eyebrows and eyelashes after 30 is when they begin to notice finer and less populated. And it is that as it happens with the skin and the hair, the renewal process also slows down. For this reason, it is important to use specific masks to repair, protect and restore their volume and natural vitality. Remember that beautiful and natural eyebrows and eyelashes will always make you look younger”, continues Serras.
She recommends the serum Lash & Brow Masque by RevitaLash Cosmetics (€45). Its nourishing formula contains Tri-Flora Complex, an innovative combination of Ginseng, Gleditsia and White Nettle, designed to strengthen hair and improve strength, natural volume and vitality. Trehalose, which repairs moisture levels and makes hair less prone to breakage, while Biotin conditions and strengthens, and Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, protects and preserves hair’s integrity.
