QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON 40+ SKINCARE
Do you wonder how to take care of your 40+ skin? Here our experts answer the most frequently asked questions.
The skin around the eyes is often thin, and signs of ageing become visible here first. The skin near the eyes is often also sensitive, and needs special care. In addition to hydration, the skin also needs nourishment to help to activate skin’s own functions that have already started to slow down over the years. That way, the skin will be able to renew itself more efficiently. Choose an eye cream that not only moisturizes, but also helps to activate the skin’s collagen production and helps to maintain its elasticity through regular use. Lightly dab eye cream under the eyes with your ring finger in order to avoid rubbing or pressing too hard on the sensitive skin.
As the skin ages, wrinkles start to appear on the forehead, especially between and above the eyebrows. It is possible to help slow down and reduce the formation of wrinkles with regular anti-ageing skincare regime. Select gentle cleansing and care products suitable for your skin type. Correctly selected skincare cream helps to activates the skin’s own renewal functions, giving it vitality and firmness. In addition to the basic daily skincare routine, the use of a serum gives added boost to the fight against wrinkles as it provides an extra dose of active ingredients to a selected skin area or the entire face. Try Time Freeze Instant Lift Serum for an immediate, long-lasting lifting effect.
One of the signs of skin ageing is the loss of an even skin tone. The skin color may be uneven or the skin starts to show areas of darker pigmentation, so-called age spots. Pigment disorders can be prevented to some extent by protecting the skin against UV rays with a day cream that has sufficient sun protection factor. Existing darker areas of the skin can be lightened with Time Freeze Targeted Dark Spot Corrector, which helps to brighten, exfoliate and lighten the skin. In clinical assessments carried out by dermatologists, the product was found to significantly lighten dark spots in 76% of tested persons*.

Aging of the skin is visible not only on the face, but also on the skin of the neck. Therefore, it is important to remember to take care of it in the same way as the face: cleanse the skin daily with products suitable for your skin type, and also apply moisturizer on the neck every morning and night. Apply cream to the skin of the neck with upward strokes from the chest towards the face to boost the skin’s surface circulation.
With age, the skin loses its elasticity and firmness. The renewal of the skin’s own support network is not as rapid as in younger skin and, due to external factors, sagging of the skin even starts to speed up. The production of the skin’s collagen and elastin can be boosted with products that help renew the skin’s own support network, slowing down the appearance of sagging and making it look and feel more supple. Lumene Time Freeze Ultra Firm Elixir contains technology that helps to improve communication within the skin’s support network. It also includes lingonberry extract, which is rich in quercetin that protects the skin’s elastin fibers to help maintain the skin's elasticity.
Wrinkles, dark circles around the eyes and puffiness can make you look tired and the overall expression seems aged. Bright and supple skin feels and looks youthful. You can help prevent dark under-eye skin and puffiness with Lumene Time Freeze Instant Eye Lift Serum that delivers instant firmness and smoothness, diminishing puffiness and signs of fatigue. Regular use helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to completely remove wrinkles over the eyelids with cosmetics products. However, you can prevent the formation of new wrinkles by using effective and gentle eye makeup remover products that nourish the skin on the eyelids and do not damage its moisture balance. For eyes, only use products that are meant for removing eye makeup, not products for cleansing the entire face. Do not stretch or rub the skin when cleansing.
Uneven skin tone and pigment disorders increase with age. The best way to improve an even skin tone is to use special products designed for that purpose, for example, Lumene Visible Repair Tone Corrector for the entire face or Time Freeze Targeted Dark Spot Corrector for specific problem areas. After the special care product, don’t forget to apply day cream with SPF and allow it to absorb before applying makeup. Choose a foundation with color pigments designed to conceal redness and reflect light for a more even complexion. Try the Lumene CC Color Correcting Cream.
Lumene Time Freeze day cream has sun protection factor of 15, which helps to protect the skin against the harmful effects of UVA/UVB rays. The vitamin E derivatives in the cream also help to protect against other external factors and help to prevent the harmful effects of free radicals. The cream does not clog the pores; on the contrary, it helps the moisture retention capacity and oxygen supply of skin cells.
With age, the skin loses some of its elasticity and develops enlarged pores. The appearance of enlarged pores can be minimized with appropriate skincare products, such as the new Lumene Time Freeze Ultra Firm Elixir. The plant extracts in the product help to diminish pores, and the light-reflecting pigments optically minimize pores and make skin look radiant. They also give renewed vitality and glow, making the skin tone look more even.
If your skin is prone to couperose, we recommend using a moisturizing mask in the sauna to protect the skin against strong heat. Lumene Sensitive Touch moisturizing mask is suitable even for the most sensitive skin. Also remember that it is not advisable to strain couperose skin before or after sauna, for example, with mechanical exfoliation.
In cosmetics products, the most common ingredient causing sensitivity is fragrance. As the thin complexion around the eyes easily reacts to these kinds of sensitizing ingredients, all Lumene eye creams are fragrance-free. You can try, for example, Time Freeze Instant Eye Lift serum, which is extremely light and absorbs quickly. It is also free of colorants.
Cosmetics products unfortunately have no effect on hormonal acne, but with correct skincare you can ensure that spots will not get worse while speeding up their healing process. If you have oily skin, we recommend changing your day cream for a lighter serum, for example, Time Freeze Instant Lift Serum. The use of Lumene Arctic Touch peat mask also cleanses the pores and prevents future breakouts. For existing spots, use Lumene Clear It Up Spot Delete targeted treatment.
In the care of couperose skin, it is most important to protect the skin against external irritants, especially against UV rays of the sun. Choose a day cream that contains protective factor, for example, Time Freeze Day Cream SPF 15. The symptoms of couperose can also be treated with special treatments, such as Lumene Sensitive Touch moisturizing mask, which effectively soothes and hydrates the skin. You can apply the mask several times a week, as necessary.
If your skin easily becomes oily and shiny during the day, it is worth considering changing the day cream for a lighter serum. For oily skin we recommend Lumene Time Freeze Instant Lift Serum. It is sufficient as a daily moisturizer if you use a more nourishing night cream in the evening.
