Decade by Decade: Skincare for Your 50’s

50's skincare heaven on earth

We have made it through a lot of decades so far— the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s—and now it is time for your guide to 50’s skincare.

Honestly, I am really excited about turning 50. Ever since I watched Oprah have her Gala 50th birthday bash, I saw the potential that the 50’s is about freedom. For women, the 30’s and 40’s are often about taking care of everyone else, but the 50’s are your time. If you’ve had children, you may now be an “empty nester,” which often makes a person beg the question: “What’s next?” Take this time to get back in touch with yourself and do things for you.

Many of my guests are starting to see the need for increased attention to their skin because in the for 50’s estrogen levels start to drop causing skin to become thinner and more fragile. Age spots and expression lines increase while moisture levels decrease. At this age, your skin needs a little extra tender loving and care. Maintain healthy skin through this age with these 50’s skincare tips.

Hydration Is Key

Maintaining hydration is key to 50’s skincare. As you get older, your skin will become more dry over time. Stop dehydration from taking hold and nourish your skin’s elasticity and glow by using a strong hydrating moisturizer.

Combat Sun Damage

The 50’s are when sun damage really begins to show in the skin. Use products that inhibit and diminish melanin growth to combat sun damage and hyperpigmentation. If you want to learn more about how to heal your skin from sun damage, read the PEAS Skincare Regimen blog.

Target Areas of Concern

Expression lines around the lips, forehead and eye areas become more prominent in the 50’s. Target these areas of concern with products containing peptides, an ingredient that is well-known for smoothing these fine lines.

Antioxidants Are Your Skin’s Best Friend

With skin becoming thinner in the 50’s, it needs extra protection from environmental factors. Use a product with powerful antioxidants to fight free radicals and protect the skin from premature aging.

Snooze Your Way to Younger-Looking Skin

One great way to encourage skin cell turnover is, you guessed it, getting plenty of sleep. No, this doesn’t mean take more naps. Your skin repairs and regenerates during the hours of deep sleep that you can only get at night.
