Are you in your 50s? Are you struggling to stay on top of your skin care routine? Are you wondering why your normally bright, vibrant skin has started to look dull? You’re not alone!
When we reach the age of 50, we start to see many physiological changes in our bodies. As part of the aging process, our hormone levels begin to fluctuate and this can cause some visible changes in our skin.
Adult acne breakouts are common in this age group, especially for women. These breakouts can be caused by hormone replacement therapy or phasing out of the regular hormone cycle. During this decade, our skin also becomes dry and we begin to see a loss of collagen. This loss is due to years of UV ray exposure which incrementally ages us and breaks down our skin matrix. This loss of collagen causes thinning and dryness of the skin. We then develop fine lines, wrinkles and sagging in the jaw and eyelid area.
Procedures can help reverse some of the skin aging we experience in this decade. These procedures can be as simple as having a facial to remove the dead skin cells from the surface which can contribute to an aged skin appearance. Phototherapy treatments, chemical peels, fillers and Botox can help tighten and make fine lines less visible. Getting rid of droopy skin and wrinkles around the eyes can also rejuvenate our appearance.
Using products that moisturize and exfoliate while providing peptides and antioxidants to repair and restore will help prolong and protect our facial skin. The Theraderm Skin Renewal System contains products that help keep our skin healthy and prolong its youthfulness. Peptide Repair Eye Crème helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and puffiness around the eyes, making it an important step in a daily skin care routine.
Getting plenty of sleep and rest, drinking water to keep our skin hydrated, watching our diet and taking some form of nutritional supplements is also recommended to help slow down the process of skin aging in this decade.
