You should exfoliate both your body and your face weekly, more often if your skin gets dry, itchy, and flaky (which can happen especially in the cold winter months).
2. Make Sure You Have the Right Cleansers and Moisturizers
You may have also noticed the older you get, the drier your skin becomes. As we age, our skin suffers a slowdown in oil production and cell turnover, especially after menopause. It is noticed that naturally oily skin turned as dry as the Sahara Desert at age 35.
Not all sunscreens are equal. You should choose a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF and you should choose one that blocks UVA and UVB rays.
There is a miracle cream and it is no longer prescription only. The secret is vitamin A derivatives retinol and prescription strength retinoid. A good retinol cream every night will help diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
5. ANTI-AGING CREAMS
If you’re over age 50, over-the-counter creams and lotions can help enhance your natural beauty by rejuvenating your skin. Pentapeptides (a chemical compound in many new products) may help prompt skin cells to produce more collagen which is the support structure that gives skin a firmer look. Prescription treatments and retinoid cream are also options.
