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.
