Over-50 Skincare

Skincare routine is essential for every age

In your 50s, you begin to appreciate the many healthy choices you’ve made so far. So, the real question is why stop when you can continue to do so. This time, let’s focus more on a basic skincare routine that you should have at the moment.

Your skin health has a tremendous effect on your emotional and mental well-being. Healthy skin increases your confidence and acts as an instant boost to the way you feel about yourself. It is common to have thinner and sagging skin, deeper lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation as well as fat loss that can create a sunken look. To help you age gracefully from the inside out, we recommend you to have these top three products.


Needless to say, the best skin care begins with daily face-washing. Mature skin should be treated with a mild and non-irritating cleanser as you don’t want to strip off your skin’s natural oil or worse, irritate dry and sensitive skin. To help maintain the pH level of your skin after cleansing, we recommend you to use a toner as it supplies you with an extra layer of moisture. Plsu, it also acts as a carrier for the next skincare routine.


Find a good serum and moisturiser that works well together on your skin. Start with a serum that contains antioxidant properties such as vitamin C or E. Over that, layer your moisturiser and give yourself a good facial massage. It works to sculpt the facial muscles, reduce fluid build up, improve blood flows, tissue toning as well as boost collagen production.

NOTE: If you’re going out, don’t forget to apply a broad- spectrum sunscreen that contains a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30 and above.


Night time care is as simple as your morning regime. Here’s an example of of what your night time treatment should be like:

  • Step 1:Remove your makeup. Sleeping in makeup is a basic skincare mistake that should be avoided.
  • Step 2:Use a gentle cleanser to wash away the make up and get rid of any dirts on your skin.
  • Step 3:Probiotic serum or booster as it helps to balance the skin’s pH and protect against free radical damage.
  • Step 4:Hydrate your skin with a heavy moisturiser that contains retinol. Retinol stimulates collagen production which can help soften wrinkles, correct dark spots as well as smoothen the skin texture.

Being beautiful and feeling good comes from the way you feel and care about yourself. So, if you haven’t made that your primary goal, do it today!
