Stay fabulous at 50! As we’ve already discussed in the previous posts, skin concerns are present at any age, any decade and the most important thing to remember when addressing them is the same – find and maintain the most beneficial and best skincare routine to match your age and its set of challenges and concerns. Here are some tips to help you have a healthy-looking skin and love the look of your skin at this decade.
What happens to your skin?
50’s comes with a big decrease in collagen and loss of elasticity for nearly all women, which is affected by menopause. This is a decade of hormonal up’s and down’s, so it’s no surprise that your skin has a lot to deal with and could really use your help and care to make it look its best and healthiest. This results in decline in estrogen (causing decline in collagen production) as well losing its elasticity and moisture.
In this decade it’s essential that you step up your eye care, as signs of ageing are now much more visible. Using a special anti-ageing cream will boost hydration and help brighten up your under-eye area. This is also beneficial for helping reduce wrinkles and dark circles. Use products that contain collagen boosters, for example – retinols, peptides or glycolic acid.
Exfoliation is also a must-do since it gets rid of dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production. This also creates a canvas for letting your anti-ageing products penetrate more effectively. Be sure to exfoliate at least twice a week to shed old surface cells that might be making your skin look dull. To add an extra hydration, add a hydrating mask after exfoliation.
Serums should be a staple product in your skin care routine as they have lots of anti-aging benefits – filled with antioxidants (which helps with hydrated and brightness). Look out for serums with retinol, Vitamin C as well as hyaluronic acid which is great for dehydrated skin as it has the ability to hold moisture for days. Serums are an amazing way to restore your complexions elasticity and an easy way to get back your bright and glowing skin. Use serums overnight that penetrate deep into the layers of your skin and lock in the beneficial ingredients.
Just like every other decade, moisturising still stays as one of the most important steps in your routine at any age. Dry, dehydrated skin will highlight uneven skin tone and wrinkles even more, so be sure to choose a good moisturiser that’s formulated specifically for your skin type.
Pay attention to your neck
Do you need a separate cream for your neck? No, but you do need to pay attention and apply something on your neck daily. With so much focus being on our face we often forget that our necks have very thin skin and have a strong gravitational disadvantage, which will clearly show the signs of ageing – wrinkles, dryness and sagging. Add a generous dose of a rich cream daily.
One of the best treatments we suggest for this decade are our Caci Non-Surgical Lifting and Advanced Skin Treatments. It’s a highly regarded micro-current system which improves muscle tone and can improve particular skin concerns. For best results, we do offer having a full course. The Synergy Facelift is especially great for your skin in 50’s as this treatment combines facial muscle toning with the benefits of skin rejuvenation.It also introduces light therapy which soothes and calms redness, kills acne bacteria, speeds up cell renewal and stimulates collagen production. The treatment also includes an ultrasonic peel and microdermabrasion to exfoliate, leaving a brighter, smoother complexion. Caci’s unique wrinkle comb will then be used to plump out deep lines or wrinkles, and triggers tissue repair and healing.Finally, your therapist will use a full-face hydro-mask to deliver intense skin hydration for dehydrated and sun damaged skin. The mask contains collagen which leaves you with plumper and smoother skin. After a course of treatments, you can expect to see a more youthful and toned appearance with glowing, healthy skin. for more information visit this part of our website.

Thinking about getting laser treatment? NOW is the best time – here are some great reasons:
1- It takes on average around 8 sessions to successfully reduce hair to its maximum level. So, starting in the Winter means by Summer you are almost done with your course and the hair is looking minimal at this point
2-Claire our laser practitioner will advise what is best for you, but avoiding sun exposure as much as possible before and after treatment is advised. This makes an ideal scenario to safely prepare for summer holidays.
3- Laser treatment allows for skin renewal, causing new and healthier cells to grow. The vulnerable new cell needs protection from harmful UV rays to prevent any sort of damage. It becomes much easier to accomplish this goal during wintertime when staying inside and covered up is easily accomplished.
4- The best time to invest in laser hair removal is primarily the wintertime, naturally the skin is kept cool and therefore gaining a flawless finishing result.
