Embracing Graceful Ageing: Skincare in Your Fifties

As you reach your fifties, life takes on a new dimension of wisdom, confidence, and contentment.

Just like your life experiences, your skin has journeyed through various stages and deserves extra care and attention. 

Skincare in your fifties is all about embracing the beauty of graceful ageing while focusing on nourishment, hydration, and protection.

We’ve included some tips on how to maintain a radiant and healthy complexion in your fifties.  

1. Prioritize Deep Hydration: 

In your fifties, your skin’s natural ability to retain moisture diminishes significantly, leading to drier and more dehydrated skin. Prioritize deep hydration by incorporating richer, cream-based moisturizers into your routine. Look for products containing hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides to nourish and replenish your skin’s moisture barrier.

We recommend using Ginseng Infusion tensor effect day cream. It’s a revitalising day cream that combats skin ageing.

Your skin will instantly feel firmer and more elastic. Double this up with the Ginseng Infusion Total eye cream for the perfect anti-ageing duo.

If you’re looking to improve your skin’s elasticity, try Apivita’s Queen Bee Absolute Anti Ageing & Regenerating cream.

Its velvety, rich texture is perfect for mature skin. It will reduce wrinkles, increase skin elasticity and firmness, while intensely nourishing your skin.

2. Invest in Serums: 

Serums packed with potent antioxidants, peptides, and growth factors can work wonders for your skin in your fifties. These powerful ingredients can help stimulate collagen production, improve skin elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Consider using a serum under your moisturizer both in the morning and evening for optimal results.

Here are our top 5 Anti-Ageing Serums:

  • Another plant powered serum on our list is Neogen’s Real Bakuchiol Firming Serum. This collagen boosting serum focuses on skin elasticity, while hydrating and replenishing the skin. This serum is perfect for sensitive and irritated skin.
  • For an effective anti-ageing serum, try L’Occitane’s Immortelle Precious Serum. It will reduce the appearance of fine lines, early wrinkles and skin texture. Plumping the skin with moisture. Apply morning and evening on face and neck.
  • Age Protect Multi-Action Intensive Serum. You’ll love this boosting serum from Uriage. It acts on both signs of aging and daily aggressions damaging the skin: blue light, UV rays, pollution, stress, fatigue… Your skin will be left more radiant, firmer and will appear more youthful.
  • If you’re looking for a serum that lifts, smooths, firms and evens out your skin tone, look no further. Apivita’s Queen Bee Absolute Anti-Ageing & Redefining serum will do the trick. It’s a concentrated serum with a fortifying and luxurious formula. Apply morning and evening, before using Queen Bee Day Cream, on cleansed face and neck gently patting with fingertips.

3. Show Your Neck and Décolletage Some Love: 

The neck and décolletage area are often neglected, leading to premature signs of aging. Extend your skincare routine to these areas by applying moisturizer, sunscreen, and anti-aging products. Gently massage the skin in an upward motion to improve circulation and maintain firmness.

You can’t go wrong with Kocostar’s Collagen Cream.

It’s helpful in improving the three types of skin wrinkles by improving the depth of wrinkles around the eyes, thick nasolabial folds, and neck wrinkles.

Kora Organics Active Algae Lightweight Moisturiser is a good choice if you want to hydrate, calm and even out your skin tone. 

Warm in the palms of your hands and massage onto a clean face, neck and décolleté in the morning and evening after your serum.

We also recommend using Neogen’s Probiotics Youth Repair Cream.

A multi-functional cream that improves firmness and intensely nourishes and hydrates skin. 

Use this on your neck and décolletage area to hydrate, firm and nourish your skin.

4. Sunscreen Remains Non-Negotiable:

As you age, sun protection becomes even more crucial. Shield your skin from harmful UV rays by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day. Consider using physical blockers like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to provide an extra layer of protection.

Don’t leave home without Uriage Bariesun Fragrance Free Moisturising cream SPF50+.

Its gentle, unscented formula makes it as easy everyday choice and will keep you protected and hydrated throughout the day.

5. Embrace Retinoids:

 Retinoids, such as retinol, continue to be valuable allies in your fifties. These vitamin A derivatives promote collagen synthesis, improve skin texture, and minimize the appearance of age spots. Start with a lower concentration and gradually increase usage as your skin tolerates it.

6. Gentle Exfoliation:

 Exfoliation remains essential, but in your fifties, opt for gentler exfoliants to avoid irritation. Chemical exfoliants like polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) or mild fruit enzymes can help remove dead skin cells without causing harm. Exfoliate 1-2 times a week to reveal a brighter complexion.

Try Neogen’s collection of PHA Gauze peeling pads, available in 3 variants Green Tea, Lemon and Wine.

The pads gently exfoliate and clean out impurities, while nourishing the skin, improving skin texture and skin tone.

We also love Kora Organics Tumeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask. Its an invigorating mask formulated to revitalise, brighten and smooth. Designed to clean pores and deliver the power of an invigorating facial treatment at home. Simply Massage into damp skin while avoiding eye area. Leave on for 5-15 minutes to let the enzymes work their magic. Remove with water in circular motions to exfoliate. For added exfoliation, remove with damp cloth.

7. Pay Attention to Nutrition and Lifestyle:

A balanced diet rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins can greatly benefit your skin’s health. Foods like berries, avocados, nuts, and green leafy vegetables contribute to a radiant complexion. Additionally, prioritize regular exercise, adequate sleep, and stress management to support overall skin health.

We love Dose & Co’s range of Collagen blends. They’re sustainably sourced using only natural ingredients, free from GMO’s, fillers and binders and are housed in 100% plastic free containers.

Their high-dose Pure Collagen Peptide Powder will have you glowing from the inside out.

Celebrate the beauty of ageing gracefully

In your fifties, skincare is all about celebrating the beauty that comes with graceful aging. Prioritise deep hydration, invest in serums with powerful ingredients, and extend your skincare routine to the neck and décolletage area.

Continue using sunscreen diligently, embrace the benefits of retinoids, and exfoliate gently to maintain a radiant complexion. A holistic approach to nutrition and lifestyle will complement your skincare efforts and contribute to your overall well-being.

Embrace this phase of life with confidence, knowing that your skin is a reflection of your journey, resilience, and the beauty of embracing the passing years.
