Are you in your early 40’s? Is your skin beginning to feel different. Some women in their 40s can begin to experience the first real signs of aging. And not to further rock the boat, but in your mid to late 40’s, the first symptoms of Menopause  may begin to appear. This not only affects estrogen levels but also the very structure of the skin. 

In today’s post we have used some excerpts from our Ebook and used those to give specific advice on how Bonne Foi Natural sin care can help!!


Here are some of the obstacles you’re likely to face at 40, and recommended treatments:

• Your skin starts to lose elasticity in your 40s – especially around the eyes. All 40-something women should wear an eye cream to nourish and protect the delicate skin around the eyes. Bonne Foi’s Firming Eye Serum was specially formulated to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around your eyes, giving you a more youthful appearance. How does it do this?  Through the use of three very special ingredients formulated to plump your cells and tighten your skin.

• Your skin will be drier than it was in your 30s. You may want to introduce richer, more  deeply moisturizing ingredients or even facial oils into your nighttime regime. If your skin has always been on the dry side, add a replenishing night cream as well. Choose creams containing hyaluronic acid, petrolatum, shea butter or oils.  Bonne Foi’s Night Serum contains ingredients that gently exfoliate your skin while your sleep. 


• Collagen and elastin begin to break down, making your skin less elastic. That can lead to sagging skin. If your facial features are becoming less firm, you may want to Investigate creams that boast a specific “firming” action.  


• Your skin retains less moisture and loses some of its “glow.” You might even see blotchiness, red spots and ruddiness – the cumulative effects of sun damage. If you avoided the sun in and before your 20s and 30s, you’ll reap the benefits of that choice –if you didn’t, which let’s face it, was the way most of us lived, then try Bonne Foi’s Rejuvenation tonic. It can help repair some of the damage old Mr. Sun did to your skin.  


Most importantly of all, be kind to your skin. Don’t use products that are rough, or pull at your skin. Be cautious of things like harsh chemical peels. Be patient and use the least harsh of ingredients and procedures to keep your skin looking good. Last but not least, do your best to age gracefully, none of us is going to look 20 when we are 40. Take care of your skin, take care of your health, and age with grace.
