Hormonal changes are really playing havoc with your body and your skin isn’t faring much better. Your skin is now dryer in more places than ever before and those fine lines you had have gotten much deeper. The fifties also give in to gravity and the skin sags even further. Many fifty year olds also complain of dark circles under eyes even when they’ve never had them before.
Daytime moisturizers will probably end up being thicker but should contain retinol, antioxidants and sunscreen.
Nighttime moisturizers need to be creamy with rich moisturizer ingredient like shea butter, retinol and also a collagen builder.
RoC has a set of products for firming, etc. called MULTI-CORREXION® LIFT. They say their products help fight the gravity and loss of elasticity. Revlon has Eterna ’27.’ Eclos Anti-Aging Moisture Therapy. This face cream contains high potency plant stem cells. Neutrogena has Ageless Intensive Deep Wrinkle that is supposed to fill in those deeper wrinkles.
I’d like to end this with a few words of advice. Along with washing your face 2X’s a day, you will also need to drink more water and take vitamins. You might also want to use thicker night creams to nourish your skin, try finding one that has ceramides and vitamin K. This goes for your skin cream and not just for your face. Keep doing those facial exercises to help strengthen the facial muscles.
I hope this information has helped.
