Skin Concerns by Age Part 3: The 40’s

The Problem
Aging is such an interesting and exciting journey, but it can be disturbing as you watch the visible signs show up on your skin. Most of us feel much younger than our actual age and when we look in the mirror we want to see a resemblance of that younger self.  

Is your skin looking as vibrant, youthful, and healthy as you want? 


Common Complaints of Aging In Your 40’s 

If youhaven’t jumped on the skincare bandwagon by your 40s, you’reprobably not loving the skin you see in the mirror.  You may notice these common signs of aging in your 40’s:

  1. Dry, dull skin due to slower cell turnover and exfoliation.
  2. Lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin from collagen and elastin disintegration.
  3. Uneven skin tone due to photo damage from the sun.

What Can You Do?

Remember the basics of skincare are vital to age prevention and maintenance for your skin’s youthful vibrance.  Restore your skin with Mikel Kristi’sVital A Rejuvenating Serum and ourBio Peptide Revitalizing Serum to help with collagen production. Increase the natural exfoliation process with ourRejuvenating Swipes andVital A Rejuvenating Serum.  Protect your skin from environmental stressors with ourVital C Repair Serum andC Radiance Moisturizer.  You will see visible signs of that youthful glow within a few weeks of use. 


Other Signs of Aging in Your 40’s

In addition to the common complaints of aging on the face, many in their 40’s will start to notice changes happening ontheir neck as well. Often timeswomen forget to care for their neck and chest in their earlier years, and with this neglect the skin in these areas begins to show aging.  Most commonly noticed in your 40’s:

  1. Crepey, saggy skin from collagen loss that is beginning to appear. 
  2. Discolorations from sun exposure.
  3. Loose and drooping skin on the neck and under the jawline from volume loss. 

OurBio Sculpt Firming Cream is a luxuriously creamy formula that has been clinically validated tofirm, tighten, and minimize the appearance of aging skin on the neck anddécolleté areas. I also love it for areas of crepiness on the arms and legs!


A surprising complaint of many women in their 40’s is acne.  You may have thought that you outgrew acne after your teenage years, however, with aging comes hormonal changes. These changes can lead to an increase in sebum (oil) production.  This increased sebum gets trapped in the pores due to the slowing of the skin’s natural cell turnover. Add in ourRejuvenating Swipes, which are loaded with AHA’s to help with exfoliation and essential oils that help decrease inflammation on the skin.  

Additional Anti-aging Solutions

In addition to skin changes listed above, there are also changes happening under the skin that cannot be helped with skin products or topical treatments alone.  As we age we lose bone, fat, and muscle in the face. With this volume loss comes bags under the eyes, dark under eye circles, a tired look to the face, saggy eyelids, and saggy jowls. Know that under the skin problems cannot be fixed by solely using skincare products.  It’s important to set realistic expectations regarding the results you are looking for and what topical treatments can do. Radiant, even-toned, smoother skin from a great skincare routine helps everyone look younger and more refreshed. But, those seeing changes in the skin due to volume loss will likely require dermal fillers to lift and re-volumizethe face. 


With all the products and treatments available today, timeless beauty is easy to achieve.  The simplest, and most important step to prolong a youthful appearance in your 40’s is to follow a daily skincare regimen that nurtures and slows skin aging.  Mikel Kristi Skincareprovides everything you need to renew, rejuvenate, refine, and maintain your youthful complexion.

Book Release - Your Beauty Advocate by Christy Hall

Advocate:A person who speaks or writes in support or defense of a person, and/or cause.

For all the ways to describe who I am and what I do, the word advocate feels the most right. I am not just a PA-C, injector, skincare formulator, and entrepreneur. Those are simply the tools I use to carry out my life’s passion. My mission is to help educate people on the power they have to work with aging on a deep and impactful level, and to help my clients see themselves in a new light that they have control over. The truth is that too many people waste money and sanity on products and procedures that either don’t work, or don’t deliver on the intended outcome. And it's only by education on the structure of the skin, and how aging takes place in the body, that we can intelligently choose what to do when.

An Introduction To Cosmeceuticals
So, you may ask, “Why don’t all skin products work?”  Many of us have bought the newest trendy product that we have read about in a beauty magazine or seen on TV, used it for a few weeks, see no results, and then put it in the cabinet never to be touched again. The fact is that YOU WANT TO SEE RESULTS!  You want your skin to look and feel healthier and younger. However, many beauty products fall short because those amazing “active ingredients” that they advertise aren’t delivered to the right place in the skin, or in the right form to be effective.

Skin Type Myth Busted

Many companies in the business of “Big Beauty” have capitalized on the notion of a customized skincare plan based on your particular skin type. I think we have all taken the quiz, received the result, and went straight to the cash register confident that this custom regimen would be the answer to our skin woes. Cut to three months later, and we are back at a different register, listening to different set of promises … and lather, rinse, repeat.

It really doesn’t matter what “skin type” you have. The four basic daily needs for skin health and anti-aging do not change
