Skin Care For 50’s

In your 50’s? What preventative steps can you take in your skin care routine to minimize ageing?

So many factors influence the rate at which you age. Genetics, the lifestyle choices we make, smoking, excessive sun exposure and how we manage stress. Over time these factors can contribute to the formation of lines, wrinkles, thinner skin, a loss of elasticity leading to sagging skin and the appearance of pigmented skin and sunspots.

Before you go into panic mode over all the skin imperfections you would like to correct, let’s look at some of the key ingredients you need to look for in skin care products to take some preventative steps in your skin care for your 50’s to minimize ageing.

• Cleansers: Wash skin daily with a creamy moisturizing cleanser for sensitive skin. Look for ‘calming’ ingredients such as Panthenol and Matricaria.

• Serums: Layer serums under your moisturizer which contain antioxidants like L-Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin C , Vitamin E, Resveratrol, or Green Tea.

• Moisturizers: Should support and protect the barrier function of the skin and maintains moisture. Ingredients: Betaine, Hydrolysed Hyaluronic Acid

• Sun protection: Apply a SPF 30+ fragrance free full-sectrum to fight against UVA/UVB rays with ingredients: Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Camellia Oelifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract for antioxidant protection.

• Apply a rich night cream with peptides, a hydrating prescriptive retinoid, or retinol (Vitamin A) cream. Retinoids boost reserves of collagen and elastin preventing future sagging. Additional ingredients can include: Niacinamide, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) to help soothe and hydrate skin.

• Hyperpigmentation can be reduced with creams containing 2% Hydroquinone, Phytophenol, or Kojic acid. Skin exfoliation is promoted which enhances skin tone and texture and improve the appearance of age spots.

Anti-ageing skin care and cosmetics is big business. That’s one of the reasons why pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies continue to work on the research and development of skin care products. By providing consumers with the most effective solutions advancements such as developing the carriers and solvents that are used in products to help penetrate ingredients more deeply through the skin will ultimately be a win-win for all – companies and consumers alike.

So, the next time you go shopping for skin care you can look past the expensive packaging and hype, read the ingredients on the label of the bottle and know that you are choosing a product with the right ingredients for your skin as it changes over time.
