In addition to investing in aesthetic treatments, now is when you start to include more serums in your skincare routine, with these serums targeting specific skin concerns like sun spots and crow’s feet. It’s also essential to use products that contain hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides. Doing so will help with moisture retention, which is a big issue during this decade.
Additionally, we can’t leave out retinol and sunscreen – with the former encouraging collagen production and treating existing wrinkles.
Wrinkles in your 50s
As your estrogen levels continue to shift, you’re going to experience a significant drop in collagen production, as well as drops in hyaluronic acid, elastin, and ceramide production. These changes lead to sagging and drier skin as well as increased sensitivities. They also cause more pronounced wrinkles, volume loss, and excess pigmentation as a result of sun damage.
The best way to address these changes is by maintaining the levels of moisture in your skin. You can do this by using products that contain hyaluronic acid and ceramides.
This is also a great time to try anti-aging aesthetic treatments like vampire facials, micro-needling, and laser treatments as they will help encourage cell turnover and leave your skin with a refreshed and youthful glow.
Wrinkles in your 60s and beyond
Your skin is much thinner, and thirstier, in your 60s and beyond, which makes signs of aging much more pronounced. Your skin is also much more irritable, and it also bruises easier than it did in earlier years.
During this period of time, it’s important to keep your skin as hydrated as possible. You should also ensure that your skincare products are gentle on your skin. Also, this is not the time to take a pause from your sun protection habits. So, make sure that you use a broad-spectrum sunscreen and wear clothing that protects your skin from the sun.
