Skin Care at Every Age: 50s and Beyond

As life goes on, our skin may not be a reflection of our true age or even of how young we feel at heart.  Decades of skin damage are all-too apparent on our face and other areas of skin as we enter our 50s and beyond.  Perhaps it is all a sign of many good times – hopefully you have many more laugh lines than scowl lines by this age, which is really a matter of how you think about it, right?  Rarely will someone not experience any fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, discoloration or change in skin tone and texture by age 50.  For those who do, bravo on incredible genes and skin care.  But for the rest of us, life experiences usually end up showing on our face some way or another. 

In our 50s and beyond, all of the changes we saw from our 40s are magnified:  lines and wrinkles crease deeper now; age spots and hyperpigmentation areas grow in size and become darker; gravity is not kind to our eyelids, cheek bones and chin line; dry skin is extreme; and skin texture changes as fat pads shift.  With age, skin thins greatly and with loss of fat and toning, facial features hollow.  Hormones are still teetering, causing skin sensitivities.  And of course collagen and sebum oil production is very slow.  

Again, a multi-pronged approach is required to repair and rejuvenate mature skin in our 50s.  The essential ingredients here will be cell-reviving antioxidants, collagen-boosting peptides and amino acids, skin-healing retinol, deep moisturizing hyaluronic acid and redness-reducing anti-inflammatories.  Guess what?  The Natura Veda skin care line has it all! 

Our cleanser, hydrating mist, exfoliant and clay mask will keep skin sanitized, pores clear and cells detoxified while not leaching natural moisture from skin.  Skin should be washed twice daily and the hydrating mist can be used multiple times a day to refresh skin.  Exfoliate and use a clay mask two to three times weekly. 

Moringa-infused moisturizers will be especially critical at this age.  They deliver the wholesome skin-loving nutrients that Moringa has to offer – antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and a ton of other phyto-nutrients. Moringa penetrates deeply to nourish many layers of skin.  This also helps inject retinol found in our Nighttime Moisturizing Cream and Eye Serum into skin cells.  This crucial ingredient helps repair damaged cells to restore strength and shape.  Each of these Moringa-infused moisturizers helps stimulate collagen and elastin for firmer, more supple, elastic skin.  Moisturizers should be used every day and every night for the best results. 

Additionally, our Natura Veda line offers two intense products to rebuild skin health and add extreme moisture to skin.  As we recommended for the 40s, our Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Matrixyl 3000 is one of the best natural ways to re-hydrate skin. It replaces hyaluronic acid that the body no longer produces on its own while also encouraging collagen and elastin and helping repair damaged cells.  We also offer an extraordinary Botanical Elixir with Moringa and Sacha Inchi oils.  These two oils combined have phenomenal healing properties for older skin and help combat the effects of aging, especially many dry skin conditions.  Sacha Inchi contains a host of essential fatty acids that help reduce inflammation and repair tired, dull skin.

Natura Veda is here for your best skin at every age.  Whether you’re struggling with pimply teenage skin, trying to stop the hands of time or attempting to reverse the natural signs of aging, our product line supports every skin care goal, for every skin type at every age.  Along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, great skin care can help you defy your birth date.  We also believe that finding holistic health, wellness and happiness keeps a body young and shines through from the skin as well. 

Cheers to your best skin at every age!
