The reasonable thing is that after 50 the skin suffers and feels drier. It is a symptom derived from hormonal changes that can also accentuate the appearance of wrinkles, flaccidity, and spots.
An expert in term pharmacy explains to us how you can maintain radiant skin at that age with five beauty tips in addition to a correct daily routine (morning and night) that includes cleansing, hydration, and protection.
Personalize The Routine:
As each person has a character, each skin has its own idiosyncrasies. She ages in a unique way and needs a personalized analysis to enhance the effects of her care.
According to experts, the best thing is to go to a professional who analyzes our skin so that they can explain what their needs are in order to find the right products for their treatment.
It must be taken into account that, in addition, with the passage of time the needs of the skin change, and the routine must be adapted to these changes.
Fundamental, An Antioxidant Every Morning:
80% of skin aging is due to the exposome, that is, internal and external factors that cause skin aging by oxidation. Among them are UV radiation, pollution, tobacco, stress, diet, and lack of sleep.
To stop the action of free radicals that age the skin we need to use antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, ferulic acid, niacinamide, or melatonin.
They prevent premature aging of the skin since they prevent the production of free radicals and prevent their damage.
In addition, they have anti-inflammatory action, increase collagen synthesis and in the case of vitamin C it is depigmenting, the pharmacist tells us.
Avoid Sugar And Saturated Fat:
A health issue that affects all levels, including the skin, since certain foods such as sugar and saturated fats have a direct impact on skin aging.
Various studies maintain that these cause glycation, a chemical reaction that accelerates skin aging due to oxidative damage, inflammation, and the acceleration of the loss of collagen and elastin.
Special care must be taken with hidden and added sugars in many foods and beverages such as fruit juices, soft drinks, sugary cereals, ice cream, cold cuts as well as processed and ultra-processed foods, says the expert.
Yes To Deep Cleaning:
Taking deeper care to clean the face one or two nights a week in addition to the one that is done morning and night will make a big difference in the condition of the skin because you will avoid the appearance of new wrinkles and blemishes as well as loss hydration.
For this, it is essential to choose products suitable for each skin type. The options are endless: cleaning with an electronic device, scrubs, and mechanical, chemical, or enzymatic peels, masks.
The key to the success of this routine is to be constant and use an effective product, explains by all experts.
The Face Is Not Only The Face:
We tend to forget the neck and cleavage and the reality is that the same care that we seek from the front to the chin should be extended to the neck and decollate.
From 50 (or even earlier) both areas show signs of aging exactly the same as those we detect on the cheeks, forehead, or chin.
The face ends at the cleavage and we should take care of that skin in the same way, including the neck, emphasizes the expert in term pharmacy.
The ideal is to extend the daily routine to them in the same way, that is, daily cleaning (morning and night), hydration, sun protection, exfoliation, etc.
And even effectively assess the fact of applying specific care for the neck and decollete.
