Skincare after 40 years: tips from Japanese cosmetologists

As you know, with age, the skin becomes more vulnerable. There are several reasons for this. The amount of collagen and elastin decreases, natural moisture is lost, age spots appear, and blood circulation worsens.
The effectiveness of the Japanese approach to skin care is known throughout the world. What do Japanese cosmetologists recommend to avoid age-related changes? We have collected the top most important recommendations for you.


Cleansing is the first step in caring for aging skin. Аvoid soaps and harsh cleansers, which can irritate and dehydrate your skin. 
Proper cleansing should be divided into two stages.
  1. Makeup removal. Apply a small amount to a cotton pad and wipe your face thoroughly, paying special attention to the skin around the eyes. Use a makeup remover that suits your skin type.
  1. Exfoliation. Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin and stimulates cell turnover. Apply a soft scrub to the skin and massage for 1-2 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly with water.

It is important to remember that effective skin cleansing should be regular and carried out in the morning and evening.


Moisturizing is also important when it comes to aging skin. Use creams, serums and nourishing oils at least 2 times a day (after skin cleansing).
Among the ingredients that should be included in these products, the most important are:
  • hyaluronic acid;
  • vitamin E;
  • collagen;
  • lecithin.

Also, don't forget that hydrating your skin starts from the inside, so drink enough water throughout the day. It is recommended to drink at least 2 liters of water per day.


A balanced diet plays an important role in skin health.
Diversify your diet with plant-based ingredients (fruits, vegetables and herbs). When it comes to healthy skin, the most important ones are carrots, peppers, nuts, olive oil and berries.
Don't forget about protein-rich foods too. Regularly include fish and other seafood, as well as eggs, in your diet.
For drinks, it is better to give preference to green tea and freshly squeezed juices.
All of these foods are rich in nutrients that will help keep your skin healthy.

Facial massage

Regular facial massage helps improve blood circulation, stimulate cell renewal and strengthen facial muscles. In addition, it helps remove fine wrinkles, tightens the facial contour, and restores elasticity to the skin. This is an excellent remedy to normalize the activity of the sebaceous glands.
Massage should begin after cleansing and moisturizing the skin. For maximum effect, use gentle movements from the center to the edge:
  • from nose to ears;
  • from forehead to temples;
  • from chin to cheeks.

For maximum effect, massage your skin for at least a minute 2 times a day.

Avoiding stress, free radicals and UV rays

These 3 factors have a negative effect on skin health and significantly accelerate its aging.
To combat stress, try to find time for relaxation, do yoga, meditation or other methods of relieving it.
To avoid exposure to free radicals, use products with antioxidants. The most effective of them are vitamin C, E, beta-carotene and tannins.
Regarding UV rays, be sure to use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher before going outside.


To maintain healthy skin, it is recommended to get enough sleep each night - typically 7-9 hours for adults. It is also worth paying attention to the quality of sleep, creating comfortable conditions for rest. The most important of them are:
  • quiet and cool room;
  • lack of bright light;
  • comfortable bed;
  • fresh air;
  • regular sleep schedule.
Why is healthy sleep so important for your skin? Because during this period several processes take place.
  1. Cell regeneration.
  2. Balance hormone levels.
  3. Reducing swelling.

Attention to the neck and décolleté area

Facial skin care is very important. However, the neck and décolleté give away age in the same way as the face. Don't forget that this area requires no less care.
It is also advisable not to wear clothes with high collars and, if possible, avoid wrapping scarves in multiple layers, as this can cause irritation to the skin in this area. Of course, this does not apply to cases where the weather is too cold, because hypothermia plays a much more negative role.
We hope our selection of recommendations from Japanese cosmetologists will be useful to you and help you maintain the freshness and beauty of your skin!
