Skincare is vital, no matter what age you are. Surely by the time you are in your fifties, you have a skincare routine. However, this is the time in life when aging signs become prevalent, causing you to look older than you are. To keep your skin looking as youthful as possible, it is important to implement a good skincare routine that keeps the skin moisturized, tight, and smooth. Here are some steps to taking care of your skin in your fifties.
Make Sure To Moisturize
You have properly heard it a million times throughout your life, but moisturizer is key to good skin. A moisturizer keeps the skin hydrated and helps it glow. Especially if you spend time in colder climates, moisturizer will be key to avoiding flaky, cracking skin. Even when you wash your face, utilize a moisturizing cleanser. At Jupiter Dermatology & Hair Restoration, we have a variety of skincare products, including moisturizers, to help keep your skin stay hydrated.
Use Face Serums
Unfortunately, as aging sets in, the skin stops producing hyaluronic acid and collagen. Both of these natural substances are basic structures for the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin to retain moisture and stay hydrated, plus it adds volume to the skin for a plumper look. Collagen is a fundamental protein that is the primary component of connective tissues in the skin. To help restore the lost collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin, use daily face serums made from these substances. Plus, if you look for a serum that contains an antioxidant it will fight free radicals as well. This will help your skin to look brighter and younger.
Apply a Nightly Cream
During the daytime using a face serum is great before applying moisturizer and sunblock. At night, however, go to bed wearing a nightly face cream. Make sure the face cream has important ingredients, like retinoid, as this is an anti-aging substance that will help to hide wrinkles and fine lines. As with face cleansers, the night cream should be moisturizing as well to not dry out your skin. If you have sensitive skin, this is especially important.
If you want to truly rejuvenate your skin, consider getting a facial treatment with our Jupiter Dermatology team. We offer various facials, chemical peels, and injectable treatments.
Facials are recommended for regular skincare as they remove impurities and clear the pores. They can also remove age spots, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. At Jupiter Dermatology we offer facials with microdermabrasion for comprehensive skin treatment.
Chemical peels are great for removing the damaged, aged layers of skin so that you can start with a fresh layer. We offer three types of chemical peels: the superficial peel, medium peel, and deep peel. Depending on your skin concerns, each peel will be beneficial in a different way.
Lastly, injectable treatments are minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that work to smooth out wrinkles and lines, add volume to the skin, and help plump up sagging skin. Injectable treatments range from neuromodulators like Botox to dermal fillers like Juvéderm. Our team will recommend the best type for you based on your concerns and lifestyle.
