Heal your skin during your 50s with these anti-aging skincare saviors
Our 5 expert tips to get your skin looking as young as you feel
As we get older, our skin can take the hit even if our bodies and minds still feel like they’re mid-20s, with visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and loss of volume and firmness affecting our complexion. However, with a few expert tips, achieve your most youthful-looking skin yet for radiant, healthy, smooth skin to glide into your 50s.
1. Strengthen your skin’s barrier
In your 50s, there isn’t necessarily one product which will cure all your skincare woes. For your youngest skin in your 50s, the solution starts with strengthening your skin's barrier. As we get older, our balance of hormones changes, particularly when it comes to declining levels of estrogen. As this hormone depletes, the skin can’t protect itself, maintain hydration or produce strong collagen as it once could.
To help repair the skin’s depleted barrier, it’s essential to look for a product which is rich in the skin’s own lipids. Enter, Life Plankton Essence . With a natural affinity to the skin’s natural barrier, this lightweight yet actively concentrated essence triggers deep cellular renewal and rejuvenation to help heal and revive the skin’s vital functions. Use both morning and night to deliver an intense dose of hydration as well as nutrients, vitamins, amino acids, proteins, glucids and lipids deep into the skin to help heal the complexion from within and create newborn skin. In fact, after 8 days of use in clinical trials, it was found that skin looked 3 years younger on average and 13 years younger in best performance.
2. Replenish and nourish your skin
The decline in estrogen levels can also have a big impact on our skin’s hydration, whereby our skin’s ability to retain water decreases and can lead to dry, dehydrated skin, an effect that is not helped by the skin’s slowdown in oil production as we age. Biotherm’s Blue Therapy Cream-In-Oil is the ideal solution to your anti-aging woes, providing the ultimate nutrition to repair and invigorate your skin, and quickly! In only 2 weeks, your complexion will regain visible smoothness, bounce and radiance, with lines smoothed out day by day. This is all thanks to its innovative and unique formula which contains Marine Connectum; a restructuring sea sugar which helps to heal and reinforce the skin’s barrier to lock in moisture and achieve the appearance of younger-looking skin.
3. Add antioxidants to your skincare regimen
According to researchers from the Department of Dermatology in the Dessau Medical Center, Germany , inflammation can speed up the signs of aging. As we get older, our lymphatic system can become less reactive and effective, causing blockages and a buildup of toxins within our bodies which can lead to inflammation. The most effective way to counteract this process is through the use of antioxidants; naturally-occurring compounds which help to prevent cell damage caused by free radicals in our environment and in our bodies. Not only can they be found in foods such as goji berries, blue berries and dark chocolate, but we can also apply them topically in our skincare routines. Reach for these calming ingredients first thing in the morning with an antioxidant-rich cleanser such as the Skin Oxygen Depolluting Cleanser . Formulated with Life Plankton and Chlorella Vulgaris, a.k.a. The ‘breathing algae’, this gel melts onto your skin to trap and remove lingering impurities whilst hydrating your complexion. Instantly purified, smoothed and refreshed, this cleanser allows your skin to breathe, stimulating our body’s natural processes and reducing the aging signs of inflammation.

4. Awaken your skin through your eyes
Dark circles, crows feet and fine lines can be a sure fast sign to give away your real age. As we get older, the collagen in the sensitive and thin skin around our eyes depletes, and can be one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Incorporate a targeted treatment into your skincare routine, such as the Blue Therapy Eye-Opening Serum , which is formulated with extracts of the Algae of Youth in a lightweight serum to act on the 3 signs of aging around the eyes; drooping lids, puffy under eyes and wrinkles. With its ability to lift and illuminate the skin around the eyes, your complexion will look younger and brighter in as little as 4 weeks.
5. Use a serum in your routine to target signs of agings
Oils are an essential skincare savior for younger-looking skin in your 50s. Beyond delivering a moisture boost, they also can deliver active, anti-aging ingredients deep within the skin. Blue Therapy Accelerated Serum is concentrated in the algae of youth, so when this beauty oil penetrates deeply, this powerful algae helps to repair and restructure the epidermis to improve signs of dark spots, wrinkles and loss of firmness. This fast-acting serum helps to smooth, reignite and beautify the skin, to help you look as young as you feel.
