Let's Talk... Skincare in your 40s

Siempre Viva's founder Greta McKnight shares her top tips for looking after your skin in your forties. Our skin faces many challenges in our forties, but having a consistent skincare routine which focusses on tackling these issues will keep you looking at your best.


We all want to have age-defying skin so whether you have an organised skincare routine, or no skincare routine, dermatologists agree it is never too late to introduce one and review your products regularly to make sure you are using the right products for your age and skin needs.

Skin in our 40’s faces many challenges, so products that may have worked well for our skin before don’t provide the solutions for us now, so it is important to choose products with ingredients that will have the maximum impact and provide results for your skin! 

So what’s happening...

Our hormones are depleting, entering peri-menopause/menopause so Oestrogen levels are falling causing more dryness which leads to wrinkles. Skin cell turnover slows down leading to a dull / patchy complexion. Acne around the mouth and jawline is quite common due to fluctuating hormone levels. More fine lines start appearing and this is normally the time we see those fine lines go a bit deeper into full-blown wrinkles, which can be accelerated by things such as genetics, sun damage, lifestyle. Don’t forget our lips too - as our skin’s structure is breaking down as we age, the bone structure that gives our lips their full plump shape starts to wear down. 

We cannot avoid the natural life cycle, however we can use Mother Nature’s gifts to look and feel the best that is why Siempre Viva Skin has you covered.   Our core ingredients include Vitamins, Retinol, Hydrolysed Collagen, Essential Oils, and of course Cannabidiol delivering powerful results for healthy and glowing skin.     

My Suggestions to have your skin feeling and looking healthy addressing these changes in your skin for would be….



Bonus Add in Pinkie 2-3 Times per week for deep detox, balance PH levels to reduce oils, breakouts and even skin tone.

What is CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound derived from the cannabis plant. Evidence suggests that CBD oil can be beneficial for skin health and help a variety of skin conditions.
