Entering Your Fabulous Fifties
It’s all about hydration, retaining moisture, and protecting the skin barrier. Remember that well-hydrated skin = youthful skin! With each decade from 50, expect your skin to become increasingly dry due to the more pronounced impact of declining estrogen.
Expect increasing sensitivity, itching (at times), and more fine lines and wrinkles. Therefore, be careful not to overuse acids (alpha hydroxy acids) and retinol, which may further damage the skin barrier, causing even more sensitivity (That well-known anti-ageing retinol product is not suited for everyone!). Start using a face oil – this acts as a powerful sealant and protectant and is often a lifesaver for dry, itchy, and sensitive skin.
Read on below for a skincare regime developed for people entering and in one of the best decades of their lives.
