We are all well aware that, as we age, our skin takes a hit as it loses its elasticity and cell regeneration slows down. For those of us looking at 50 from the other side, the battle to keep skin looking fresh and young can seem like a lost cause. But there are things that you can do to help you retain that fresh-faced look for as long as possible.
Re-evaluate Your Skincare Products
The harsh cleansers and exfoliates that you used in your teens and 20s will no longer serve your skin well. You will want to find new skincare products that are more suitable for your changing skin. We would recommend the Obagi Nu-Derm System that helps to restore and transform tired skin.
Hydrate Your Skin
As you age, skin tends to dry out, so it stands to reason that restoring lost moisture will improve the condition of your skin. Keep a moisturiser in your bag so you can whip it out whenever you feel any dryness. Try to avoid using very hot water when cleansing too, as this strips your skin of essential oils that keep it hydrated.
As we have already mentioned, aging skin dries out. When you have dry skin, one of the best ways to address it is to exfoliate. This will remove dead flakes and allow your skin to start regenerating. Be careful when choosing a product, as those designed for teenagers tend to be too harsh, and may cause further drying to more mature skin.
Take Care of Your Eyes
Your eyes are one of the first places where aging starts to show – you will probably have noticed the dreaded crow’s feet developing around your eyes already. Using an eye cream that is specifically designed to combat this problem can help you keep them at bay for as long as possible.
