Over 50? How should you care for your skin?

Posted by Johns Creek Dermatology in Skin Care Tips 29 Nov 2016

Over time, the skin naturally ages. In fact, aging skin is inevitable. As well, there are various factors that can age the skin such as smoking, sunbathing, diet and even heredity. It also seems that around the age of 50, fine lines begin to show on the face almost overnight. Generally, it is at this time many begin to look for ways to improve the skin so it looks younger. And when the skin is revitalized, confidence and a care-free attitude return.

Many agree that the best solutions for rejuvenating the skin are with methods that do not include surgery. In fact, there are numerous skin renewal treatments and facial products on the market. As well, many treatments claim that their skin products help with age spots, crow’s feet, sagging skin and wrinkles.

When Skin Drastically Starts to Age

Although men experience aging skin, it generally ages slowly. On the other hand, when a woman goes through menopause the skin seems to age at an aggressive and accelerated rate. At the slightest, there are significant variations in the skin. These skin differences are normally due to hormonal changes. In fact, the balance of your skin is changed. Some of the most common changes in aging skin include:

• Wrinkles
• Discoloration
• Lack of brightness
• Skin elasticity loss
• Thinning skin from redistribution of fat

Natural Beauty Secrets

According to WebMD, there are several things you can do to improve and revitalize the skin as you age.

• Stay hydrated and stick to a healthy diet
• Use moisturizing lotions and soaps daily
• Quit smoking, it prematurely ages the skin
• Stop sunbathing and going to tanning booths
• Use a humidifier. It adds moisture to dry skin
• If you are over age the age of 50, try anti-aging products
• You should also wear sunscreen often. Sunscreen helps protect your skin from damaging sun rays and prevents uneven skin tone and fine wrinkles. There are both commercial and natural sunscreens available. Use products that have a SPF 30 or higher. Sunscreen should also have both UVB and UVA protection.

Many women will also notice that they have much drier skin when they get older. In fact, women who experienced normal and oily skin most of their lives notice a drastic change in skin moisture. As a result, a lot of woman change their skin care regimen to offset the dryness.

Another solution prior to spending excessive money on skin care products is to have your skin analyzed by a dermatologist. In fact, the specialist can help identify particular skin concerns that you may have. You can also talk to a physician about skin treatments such as dermal fillers, peels and other skin treatments for aging skin.
