With so much choice when it comes to skincare, our therapists are seeing more and more clients in their 50’s visiting our spas with confused complexions from using the wrong products. Therefore, to help you stay fab at fifty, here are our tips to keep you in tune with your skin.
1. Loss of tone and elasticity
The menopause affects almost all women in their 50’s and with this comes a big drop in collagen production. However, water is a great skin plumper, so drink plenty and reach for a richer, more hydrating cleanser too. Using Nourishing Cleansing Balm day and night will nourish and smooth as it cleans, plus has the added bonus of light exfoliation from the muslin cloth.
Exfoliating gets rid of dulling, dead skin cells, encourages cell turnover and stimulates collagen production – and in your 50’s, you need to be doing this at least twice a week with Refining Skin Polish.
3. Step-up our eye care routine
Signs of ageing are much more visible around the eyes and you may even start to notice eyelashes starting to thin.
Paying more attention to your eye care routine, use Bio-Active Eye Cleanser to help condition eyelashes and hydrate the skin when removing make-up.
Follow with LifeStage Stage Release Eye Moisturiser to boost hydration further and brighten. Helping to reduce dark circles, lines and wrinkles, you’ll start to notice improvements in firmness and elasticity.
4. Moisture matters
As skin becomes drier, staying hydrated becomes increasingly important. So while drinking more water can help hydrate from the inside about, applying serums and oils under your moisturiser can help hydrate from the outside in.
Adding Regenerating Face Treatment Oil or Lift & Firm Intensive Serum to your nightly routine will penetrate deep into the layers of your skin and lock-in the Superactive™ ingredients found in Lift & Firm Moisturiser when applied over the top. Stimulating collagen production and smoothing lines.
5. Add a Mask
All too easy for the complexion to become dull, dry, stressed or dehydrated, Lift & Firm Mask– rich in Argan Oil, Larch Extract and Grape Seed Oil, brings back a youthful brightness instantly firming and toning lines and wrinkles while leaving skin feeling soft and nourished.
6. Don’t be afraid of change
What works for you now might not necessarily be the case later – whether that’s next month, next season or next year. So get well-acquainted with your skin and respond to what it needs.
