After 40 BEAUTY routine that will make you GLOW

by Nicola Brennar (Gabi's beauty therapist)

Your skin goes through a lot of changes as you age, which means your beauty routine will have to change as well. Your skin care routine has to be adjusted to your skin type, lifestyle and overall preference. There are also other factors that will play part; your diet, your sleep routine, and believe it or not, but your mood, will also affect your skin's health.

So, how to ensure that your skin keeps glowing? Here's the routine that I set out for Gabi, and with some adjustments to your skin type, it will work just as well for you.


Exfoliate with  Dr Barbara Sturm's Facial Scrub

Cleanse with Guerlain's Mousse de Beaute

Tone with Guerlain's Abeille Royale Honey Nectar Lotion

Hydrate your skin with Guerlain's Watery Oil

Deep nourish with Guerlain's Abeille Royale Daily Repair Serum

Treat your lashes and eyebrows with Shiseido' Full Lash Serum

Use La Mer's Eye Concentrate

Moisturize with Dr Lancer's Nourish

Use a lip balm, Lucas' Papaw Ointment is perfect for the day

Your skin is now ready for your make up


Remove your makeup with Neutrogena's facial wipes

Double cleanse with Mecca's Micellar Water

Tone with Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner

Deep nourish with Payot's Elixir Doucheur Essence

Use a Dermaroller

Use Rapid Lash Serum on your lashes and Forbrow Serum on your eyebrows

Retinol A cream is a must, A+ High Dose Retinoid Serum from Sunday Riley is excellent

Nourish your skin with Sunday Riley's Luna Sleeping Oil

Moisturize your lips with Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm

And finally, don't forget your hands. Revitanail's Nourishing Oil is great to keep your cuticles soft and Holika Holika's Aloe 99% Soothing Gel will do great for your hands.

What else can you do for your skin? Drink lots of water. Sleep at least 8 hours every night. Eat organic. Cut processed food and eat fresh. And stop sweating the small stuff. Stress is not your friend. Be happy.
