Skin Care Tips for Your 50s

Taking care of your skin during your 50s may call for some significant changes to your routine. Our Colorado dermatology specialists have provided some helpful pieces of advice to help you stay healthy throughout this decade.

Examine Your Skin for Cancer: The risk of cancer increases as you get older. Begin incorporating monthly self-exams to your routine. Maintain a strong relationship with your physician and report any changes you may find.

Use Night Cream: Dry and oily skin may start affecting you now more than ever. Night cream is a heavy skin care product that hydrates and nourishes skin overnight, leaving you feeling refreshed in the morning.

Avoid Highly Fragranced Products: Products with strong fragrances may now start drying out your skin, which causes rashes. Switching to fragrance-free products will allow you to keep treating your skin while minimizing the risk of irritation.

The changes you are encountering in your 50s can turn your normal skin care routine upside-down. Fortunately, your physician and dermatology specialists are here to help. They can work with you to make manageable changes and ensure you stay on the path to healthy skin.

Colorado Skin Care is here to help you maintain healthy skin for life. Contact our clinic today at (303) 740-4883 to schedule a consultation with our dermatologist.
