How to take care of your skin after 50
Each decade brings new challenges and opportunities to improve your personal care routine to look young and fresh. As time goes by, the skin inevitably goes through changes, but at the same time, you get to know yourself better and understand what works and what doesn't on your skin. However, it is important to celebrate life and beauty after turning 50. Here are a few tips recommended by our expert, Dr. Leyda Bowes, to incorporate into your routine to stay youthful and beautiful without any surgery.
Include a product with Retinol
“Retinol helps reduce damage caused by skin aging, such as lines and wrinkles,” says Dr. Bowes. Research shows that it improves the skin quality and collagen production, something that is lost over time. It also has an antioxidant action, which helps fight damage caused by free radicals (1). The PIEL ETERNA A.C.E. Retinol Intensive Rejuvenation Oil includes a powerful combination of ingredients, as well as retinol, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Squalene, Maca, and Cocoa, among others, to support cell renewal and create a rejuvenating effect.
Removing your makeup and having a proper cleansing process can lessen some aging effects and have positive results for your health and on a psychological level (2). No matter how tired you feel at the end of your day, it is very important to completely remove makeup and daily impurities with a cleanser that contains beneficial nutrients for your skin that you can use in the morning and at night.
Sleep better every night
Sleeping the right amount of hours will always help you look young and rested. However, some women experience sleep disturbances with menopause, so they begin to sleep less. According to studies, mindfulness meditation can effectively relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression and improve sleep quality in perimenopausal women (3). Remember, having your beauty sleep is key to looking and feeling radiant.
Focus on the eye area
If you took care of this area before, after fifty, you should focus even more on your eye area by using a revitalizing cream as our expert recommends. Apply an eye cream that helps reduce the appearance of dark circles, such as the PIEL ETERNA Revitalizing Eye Cream. This cream supports collagen and elastin production, includes marine algae, and smoothes fine lines by deeply hydrating the skin.
Have a balanced diet
Experts say that we are what we eat, so a balanced diet is key to good health and radiant skin. Research shows the potential of B complex vitamins to treat a variety of dermatological conditions such as acne, rosacea, and dermatitis (4). Some foods rich in vitamin B are whole grains, meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, and eggs. You can also consume it with a supplement.
Your skin deserves the best. It is your responsibility to offer your skin the best products to treat and take care of it properly. Remember that it is the largest organ in your body, which is in charge of protecting you and showing the world who you are.
Let's be healthier together.
