skin care in your 50s and 60s
With each decade in our life, we start to experience a significant change in our skin and beauty---and for women over 50 and 60, these changes are going to be challenging. Lines and wrinkles become more noticeable as our skin becomes drier, thinner and more sensitive. Skin might start to look crepey and loose as it begins to lose collagen and elastin. And years of unprotected sun exposure will haunt us in the form of dark spots and uneven skin tone.

It sounds hopeless, we know. Does our skin even stand a chance against the rapid decline in hormones and drastic changes our bodies go through in our 50s and 60s? The answer is yes. At this point in your skin care journey, the focus should be in maintaining your skin health, and making sure your skin has everything it needs to protect and defend itself against further damage.

Up ahead, we tap Dr. Heather Rogers, board-certified dermatologist and fellowship-trained dermatologic surgeon, to find out the must-have skin care products for your 50s, 60s and beyond.
