Skin Care in Your 40s & 50s
Wrinkle creams, eye serums, and other anti-aging skin care products can help diminish signs of aging. To create a truly effective anti-aging skin care plan, however, it helps to start with skin care treatments.
The benefits of skin care treatments include:
- Prevent (or clear up) a blotchy complexion
- Retain skin’s youthful firmness longer
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Keep complexion looking brighter and younger
- Avoid leathery skin
- Reduce skin cancer risk
To help you create your own anti-aging skin care plan, you’ll find recommended treatments below. Each treatment has years of research to support each of these recommendations.
During our 60s and 70s, the many changes transforming our skin can feel inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. The right skin care and skin care treatments can improve how your skin feels — and looks
How Skin Can Change in Your 60s & 70s
Everyone ages differently, but during this time in your life, you may notice that your skin is:
- Thinner and starting to look paper-like
- Developing more age spots, wrinkles, and creases
- Irritated easily
- More susceptible to skin infections
- Bruising more easily
- Sweating less
- Healing more slowly
Using a humidifier when the air feels dry has helped me tremendously. Heating and air conditioning can strip humidity from the air. Dry air can make your skin feel dry and itchy. A humidifier can even help with dry brittle hair.
Try to keep indoor humidity between 45% and 60% can reduce dry, itchy skin. You can easily measure the humidity in the air with a hydrometer, which you can buy at a hardware or home-improvement store.
