If you’re 50 years or over, you might need to review your skincare regime. Your skin is undergoing some major changes (groan!).
Gravity and the natural ageing process will mean your skin has lost elasticity and is thinner and more delicate with more lines and some pigmentation.
However, according to NetDoctor there is plenty you can do to achieve a healthy-looking complexion well into your 50s.
Thanks to the menopause, levels of oestrogen and water content in your skin cells drop, which has a drying effect on your skin and also makes it slacker, since oestrogen stimulates oil and collagen production. In extreme cases you may suffer with rosacea.
What were fine lines in your forties are now turning into deeper wrinkles. Your skin is thinner too because you have less subcutaneous fat.
Hormonal fluctuations may cause the odd breakout, but is more likely to leave your skin feeling parched and sensitive, so skincare should soothe and repair.
You should be filling your bathroom cabinet with powerful anti-ageing ingredients, of a more cosmeceutical nature.
