5 Skincare Tips For Older Women
By Codex Labs' founder (and Stanford PhD), Dr. Barbara Paldus
How to get healthy, beautiful skin at 50, 60, 70 and beyond
1. First, always keep your skin properly hydrated.
To keep your skin plump and supple, be sure to drink plenty of water, use hydrating skincare (think hyaluronic acid!), and avoid alcohol or harsh cleansing ingredients which can strip your skin of its moisture and natural oils.
2. Take good care of your microbiome.
Support your microbiome so it can protect your skin against harmful bacteria by avoiding over-cleansing and over-exfoliating.
3. Maintain a healthy skin barrier.
Our skin barrier becomes naturally weaker as we age, so it’s important to keep it healthy with ingredients like omegas and ceramides which help strengthen and repair it.
4. Use antioxidants capable of penetrating the skin surface.
Supplement your skin’s naturally produced antioxidants with skincare products that contain antioxidants like M3, entadine or vitamin C that help protect from UV damage.
5. Use pH balanced products.
Use pH balanced skincare products (pH between 4.5 and 5.5) to help maintain the skin’s natural acidity which is essential for skin barrier health, protection, and skin microbiome diversity.
GET FIRM, RADIANT, YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN
As we age our skin undergoes a range of changes that can affect its appearance and overall health. For post- or menopausal women, these changes can be particularly pronounced since decreased estrogen levels can lead to skin thinning, dryness, and increased sensitivity.
To maintain healthy, radiant skin as we age it is essential to focus on hydrating skin, supporting the microbiome, protecting and repairing the skin barrier, as well as using pH balanced skincare products.
By following these guidelines, older women can maintain youthful-looking skin, radiant complexion well into their golden years!
