I am 40 and I need an anti-aging skincare that works

The best anti-aging skin care advice I have for men and women in their 40s is consistency, patience and the right skincare regimen.

Our skin changes as we age – it’s a fact. This is why our skincare regimen should also change. Wrinkles, pigmentations, and sagging start to appear and we slowly lose the natural glow, plumpness, and skin volume we used to have.


Good news! These easy-to-follow steps will help you delay aging. Remember, the earlier we start anti-ageing, the better. But if you only learn to start at 40, then no worries because I have the perfect recommendation for you.


As we need more nourishment, skin regimen for women after 40 increases. Here, is my easy 5-step skincare routine using Mary Kay Timewise Volu-firm Skincare. I have segregated the morning and evening regimen for you to follow.

Step 2: Exfoliation

Lift the dead skin using Timewise Microdermabrasion set 2-3 times a week.

Use Microdermabrasion Refine. Put a small amount of the product on your beauty fingers and apply on your 5 focal points while your skin is still wet. Scrub your face gently from the chin, cheeks, nose, and forehead using a circular motion. Do this for 2-3 minutes or until you have scrubbed your whole face; Rinse with lukewarm water and tap dry.


Step 3: Smoothen

Use Microdermabrasion Pore Minimizer. Put a pea size of the product to your fingers and dab them to your five focal points then gently spread. Wait until its fully absorbed before applying the next Step.

Exfoliate 2-3 times a week with 2-nights in between. Do not do this every day. 


The benefit of this step: Microdermabrasion gently buffs away dead skin cells and remove the pore build-up using micro fine exfoliating crystals. This is exactly the same ingredients used in derma clinics but a more gentle formula so you can do it yourself at the convenience of your own home – especially at this time where we are required to stay home.

The smoothing serum significantly helps reduce the visibility of pores and leaves skin feeling silky.



Step 4: Lift 

Apply Timewise Repair Volu-firm Advanced Lifting Serum to lift, improve firmness, and level-up the moisture of your skin.
