Celebrating a mile stone birthday is the perfect opportunity to treat your skin with tender loving care. Now is the time to invest in products that will improve your skin and take you through to the next decade with confidence. Our face is on show all the time, using the best products is vital, but equally important to look good we should remember prevention as well as repair and maintenance.
As skin ages it decreases in production of collagen and elastin resulting in wrinkles, fine lines and crows feet. An unhealthy diet, lifestyle, and over exposure to the sun can result in dull. puffy, blotchy skin and age spots.
Most of us tend to stick to a basic skin care regime – cleanse, tone, moisturise and applying sun protection when the sun pops out.
Exfoliation is an essential part of helping our skin to look its best, the natural shedding of dead skin cells encourages healthier, smoother, plumper and more even toned looking skin.
It is difficult and time consuming sifting through all the scrubs and exfoliation products on the market so to help you we have put together our favourite facial scrubs for woman over 40.

The Best Reasons to Exfoliate:-
- Exfoliate to get rid of dead skin cells to stop skin looking dull, leather like and bumpy.
- Exfoliate to prevent wrinkles. Exfoliating reveals younger more nourished skin and increases cell turnover.
- Exfoliate to improve absorption of your active skin care products, meaning using less product and saving money.
- Exfoliate to increase blood flow and circulation. Blood carries nutrients to feed the skin.
- Exfoliate to stop pores getting bigger. Dirt, grime and dead skin cells builds up in pores over time, if left untreated resulting in bacteria appearing.
