The effects of gravity, which you may first notice in your 40’s, are much more obvious once you reach your 50’s and beyond – especially on the eyelids, neck, and jawline.
Replenishing collagen is the number one priority for skin care in your 50’s and beyond. The body produces collagen, but as people age, the amount naturally produced decreases. Collagen is a protein that helps to keep the skin strong and firm. Collagen is known for helping to fill in wrinkles and diminish the appearance of fine lines and plumping up the face. You can help replenish lost collagen by using a variety of collagen-containing skin-care products, such as day and/or night creams, moisturizers, serums, lipsticks, foundations, powders and cleansers.
DSP® Skin Care offers a wealth of products that can be personalized to your specific skin care needs. By prepping, treating and protecting against wrinkles, loose skin, and collagen depletion, you can take years off your face and delay any cosmetic procedures.
Men and women in their 50’s and beyond should increase their intake of foods rich in vitamin A and vitamin E, both of which promote new cell growth in the surface layers of the skin, helping it to appear more radiant. Foods with healthy fats such as almonds, salmon, avocados and olive oil help keep your skin moist.
You should also keep up with exercise — a brisk walk every day can do wonders for your waistline, health, and skin.
As with any decade, drinking plenty of water is important. The skin’s fat layer (which helps keep skin firm and plump) begins to shrink and fails to regenerate, leading to a loss of moisture. This causes the skin to become dry and develop wrinkles. Moisture can be replenished by drinking plenty of water.
