Antiaging for the Quinquagenarian

The antiaging queen

Meryl Streep has always considered herself a character actress, once insisting, "I didn't have any confidence in my beauty when I was young." Yet at 67, Streep has already much proved herself as a truly compelling leading lady. The blue-eyed living legend can do anything—and beautifully, at that.

You’ve reached the big 5-0, congratulations! Along the way, your skin has been through a lot and has changed from what it was in your 20’s. With that being said, you shouldn’t stop your antiaging, and skincare routines. At your age, it is very important to continue with what is working with your skin, and revise what isn’t.

You may notice more fine lines, and some deeper wrinkles starting to settle in. No need to panic, there are many treatment options available. Women often think layering on heavy makeup is going to conceal any fine lines, sun spots, and any skin dryness, but it does the exact opposite. So here are some tips to help you look and feel your best at age 50 and above.

Be Amazing Today. But First, Moisturize.

We must continue to moisturize our skin! This is essential. When our skin is moisturized, it looks firmer and plumper, helping to have a smoother appearance. When our skin is dry and dehydrated it accentuates any lines or texture, think of a raisin vs. a grape. You’ll want to switch most of your skin care to oil-based products to hydrate it. There are many oils to choose from including some that fix dryness, acne, rosacea, discoloration, wrinkles and even oily skin. Oils are a lady’s best friend.

Nothing You Put on Your Skin Will Work Unless You Exfoliate.

Continue to exfoliate regularly. Aging causes everything to slow down, including cell turn over and the production of collagen. Exfoliating helps to remove any build-up of dry skin and reveal the younger skin underneath.

Rebrand Yourself.

This tip isn’t a skin care tip, and it’s often overlooked by many men and women alike. We all get set in our ways with clothing, accessories, and hairstyles. These items can make your whole look dated. So, make an appointment with your stylist and lighten up your hair; adding a few face-framing highlights. Also, cutting some layers will lighten up your locks and give your hair more bounce. Update your makeup look by wearing light reflecting products. If you wear foundation, invest in one that has a glowing finish, this will brighten up your overall look.  A lip gloss over a lipstick or a cream blush instead of powder are all great options as well.

What Else Can You For Antiaging?

Now let’s get to the antiaging procedures that are available to you if you want something a little extra. There are so many options you’ll want to make an appointment with your dermatologist to find out what is best for you before choosing.

  1. Dermal fillers are great to add volume to cheeks and lift jowls. Juvederm is one of the most popular products used. This procedure is done in an office by a dermatologist or nurse.
  2. Botox and Dysport injections are used to soften horizontal lines on the forehead as well as perpendicular frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet, nasal squint lines, and lines around the neck. It gives an overall, more relaxed appearance and helps to smooth out wrinkles.
  3. There are a few options for resurfacing the skin – chemical peels, photo facials and everything in between. These treatments help to lessen or eliminate sun spots, help with pore size, fine lines and wrinkles and help with a dull/uneven complexion. Depending on your needs, you and your dermatologist will pick a procedure that will address your antiaging concerns. Some have no downtime; however, some more intense the treatments may have some.
  4. As we age, the contours of our face change; we lose volume and start to hollow, often looking tired even after a great night’s sleep. Fillers can give you your youthful look back without the cost, or downtime of a facelift. A non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose job), chin augmentation, fuller lips and even softening your jaw line are all able to be done with fillers. Make an appointment today at Beautique Med Spa and start looking like a younger you.

With all the new technology and products available, looking and feeling your best has never been easier. From antiaging lotions to procedures, there is something to help you achieve your desired look.
