Dr. Lancer’s Skincare Regimen for 40-Somethings

In your 40s, hormonal fluctuations can cause recurrent adult acne, your skin may appear dull or sallow, and fine lines and wrinkles may have made a visible appearance. Dr. Lancer explains, “Biologically speaking, 25 is the age when your body’s cell replacement system comes to a screeching halt, but it’s not till your 40s that it really starts to show.” With the right skincare regimen, however, you can work with your skin to maintain—or regain—a firm and glowing complexion. Skincare after 40 continues to be about protection and prevention, while also ensuring that your skin receives the rejuvenation and essential antioxidants it needs to look its healthiest.

You’ve heard this unfortunate truth before: Sun damage causes wrinkles, ages your skin, and can make you look older than you are. Excessive, unprotected exposure to the sun causes skin to become dry and leathery. And while you may not be the type who sunbathed in your youth, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has proven that your skin can sustain damage in just 15 minutes of exposure. It’s never too late to start taking better care of the biggest organ you have. With Sheer Fluid Sun Shield SPF 30, you can prevent further damage and enjoy weightless, anti-aging moisturizing at the same time.
The US National Library of Medicine reports that, as you age, you sweat less (decreasing the process that allows the body to expel grit and grime naturally accumulated inside pores), hormonal changes diminish your skin’s hydration, and the epidermis thins, making the skin more easily damaged. These changes occur not only facially, but all over the body. The Lancer Method: Body is a 3-step system of polishing the skin with finely milled pure quartz crystals, cleansing with non-stripping agents, and nourishing the skin with marula oil, kigelia extract, and Kalahari melon seed extract to enable your skin to remain smooth, clean, and hydrated.

40 is the new 30, and there is no reason your skin has to say otherwise. Younger Pure Youth Serum with Dr. Lancer’s proprietary retinoid blend, MIMIXYL™, is a luxurious, high-performance anti-aging serum that dramatically resurfaces the skin, putting glycolic acid—Dr. Lancer’s favorite for evening out tone and texture—to work, activating the regeneration of collagen and new cells and significantly improving tone and elasticity.

For clinic-quality treatment in the comfort of your own home, choose what Dr. Lancer uses in his Red Carpet Flash Facial—the Lift and Plump Sheet Masks. These highly-concentrated masks contain apple stem cell compounds and Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, providing a tighter and more lifted appearance, while rose water, Centella Asiatica Extract, and sodium hyaluronate quench the skin with natural humectants, increasing hydration and suppleness.

The right skincare in your 40s can give you the beauty and confidence you deserve. Experience Lancer Skincare, the best skincare regimen for 40-year-olds, and uncover your healthier, more youthful complexion.
