Out of the blue on Friday morning we set a personal goal for when Aaron hits 40 (still a couple of years off). The goal is for us both to complete a half ironman triathlon. We don’t know what inspired it, Aaron just put it out there and we both said “let’s do it”.
Even though it is a few years away we need to start working on it now otherwise the time will come and we won’t be prepared and we’ll be setting new record times for the wooden spoon.
As always, even though we were talking triathlons it turned into a conversation about skincare and how our skin changes as we age. Especially when life really begins when you hit the 4-0 (or so they say!).
This is the time where you really start to notice that your skin is becoming thinner and drier. That is because our old mates collagen and elastin aren’t visiting as much anymore.
Your blood circulation has slowed down and now delivers nutrients to your skin slower than a dodgy restaurant on New Year’s Eve. This has a knock-on effect to cell turnover and regeneration. In your 20’s your skin would renew every 28 days, now it is doing it in about 40 days.
You can still have amazingly vibrant skin skin at 40 (and beyond) – all this means is that you need to give you skin some extra TLC to keep it that way.

The post What’s going on with your skin at 40? (and beyond…) appeared first on Happy Skincare.
After releasing preview samples of our Happy You Shampoo formula (due to be released in September!!), we received lots of lovely little notes in our inbox telling us how fabulous it was, but it would be even better if it had a conditioner to sit next to it.
So getting our conditioner ready for you has been at the very top of our “To Do” list, and we think we’ve just about nailed the perfect formula. In fact, we think we could’ve nailed the perfect formula TWICE. And we need your help!
