Best Natural Skin Care For 40 Year Olds

Best Natural Skin Care For 40-Year-Olds

Skincare Products are a must for looking young! Check out our tips for skincare products and a beauty routine for women over 40!

Do you wake up some mornings and think whose face is this? I do. I look and think gosh my face has spots on it. It looks tired. I am not tired. I feel full of life. I am ready to take on the world. I do not believe in miracles and I have a daughter so I do not believe in “procedures” to look younger. I do my best to work out even when I am home I do the free Beach Body Workout in 30 Days. I also prepare healthy meals. I try to drink a lot of water and I track it in my water tracking printable in my How to Lose Weight by Drinking More Water post.

The truth is your face doesn’t lie. It tells your story. It talks even when you do not want it to. That is why I decided to answer my issues with a real solution. I did whatever girl does. I googled how to get rid of age spots. I found a couple of great ideas. I then decided I needed a system to accomplish my goal of having my face look as good as I feel. I then went further and went and found the Best Natural Skin Care For 40-Year-Olds.

This is the routine I am following.  This is what my skin looked like when I started Instranatural skincare.

My InstaNatural Review 

I was provided these products for free to try out. I reached out to them after seeing all of their positive reviews. I wanted to share what I learned with you in my InstaNatural Review.

Morning routine:

Vitamin C Cleanser

Rose Water (this will help balance any redness and calm the skin) <— I get red easily.

Skin Brightening Serum

Can be used to help the Serum

Organic Rosehip Serum

Eye Cream

Vitamin C Moisturizer SPF 30


Night routine:

Vitamin C Cleanser (it’s great for removing makeup at the end of the day)

Rose Water

Skin Brightening Serum

Eye Cream

Retinol Moisturizer

Weekly Treatment


Glycolic Peel – 1x a week as exfoliation


This is the advice I received based on my concerns: age spots, wrinkles, red skin, dry patches, and I just look tired. I want that dewy look without makeup.

Additionally, if you tend to be drier and somewhat prone to sensitivity, we would recommend the Complete Organics Argan Rosehip Therapeutic Serum, and we would recommend applying a few drops of that after the Skin Brightening Serum and before the Vitamin C/Retinol Moisturizer. This will drive the serum deeper, provide some hydration and further your anti-aging benefits.

Of course, I needed to try the  Eyelash Enhancing Serum

You do need to apply it twice a day for 30 days. The natural lash growth cycle takes about a full month to see full results and consistency is key! I know you need lashes now so check out my post on How to Choose the Best Mascara

Have you tried an Eyelash Enhancing Serum? I tried one and I'm documenting my progress. Here's my before photo.

How to Choose the Best Mascara

What is the best mascara? That is a question I ask myself all the time. I need to have beautiful lashes since my real ones aren’t nice. I am still using Rapid Lash that I reviewed in my Rapid Lash Review Post.  It works but I wanted instant results because I can’t say to people my lashes will look incredible just wait.

You can see which red lipstick is the best in the best red lipstick post I wrote. I am an expert on red lipstick . Then after my lipstick, I put on mascara.

On Being Beautiful…..

Sophia Loren once said “Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical”

In today’s society it seems that beauty, or the idea of beauty is everywhere. The most beautiful people show up in advertisements for everything from hair care products to antacids. It’s as if one’s physical beauty is their most important asset. As someone who has struggled with self-acceptance my entire life, I have never felt beautiful; until now.Continue reading
