The secret to fresh skin at any age? Hydration, tone and texture. In your 60s, you might start to notice a constantly parched feeling and more sun spots than you’d like. Here are three easy ways you can make your skin look and feel younger with the power of exfoliation, hydration, and collagen-boosting growth factors.
1. Lighten Up Your Dark Spots
While most people think wrinkles and sagging are the real aging culprits, dark spots are actually a huge factor in skin looking older than it really is. The uneven pigment is usually a delayed marker of years spent sunbathing. Use a peel 2x a week and a microroller daily to help break up the melanin deposits in your skin. Recommendation: TCA Multi-Acid Face Peel & Microneedling Tool
2. Don't Be Afraid of Dewy
Another major aging factor? Dryness. A lot of people still use drying, oil-fighting products well into their 60s even though the skin usually doesn’t need anything quite so serious. As we age, our natural oil production decreases, which can leave skin with a sort of dull, gray look. Dryness also exacerbates the appearance of fine lines because dry cells begin to build up in the wrinkles, making them look worse than they really are. My advice? Don’t be afraid of looking a little dewy. You should be exfoliating and using a hydrating serum to draw moisture into the skin. Recommendation: Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum
3. Plump It Up
Another thing that starts to go as we get older is our facial plumpness. This is mostly due to decreased collagen and elastin production. But you can also thank good old dehydration for a less-than-firm look. To stimulate collagen and elastin in the long term, add plant-based growth factors to your regimen to trigger regeneration. Recommendation: EGF Activating Serum.
