A skin care routine after 50: Own your look
Fifty is fabulous! It’s the decade when you truly come into your own. Your confidence levels have never been higher and you have finally figured out what makes you happy. That said, there is a female-only curveball coming your way. “Menopause is a dramatic change, I really do see that. Women tell me ‘all of sudden it was a like a switch was flipped,’” says Dr. Marcie Ulmer, a cosmetic and medical dermatologist at Pacific Dermatology in Vancouver. Internally, the system is thrown out of whack. “If we look at all the processes that happen in your skin that are important for its appearance, the decline of those functions is five times faster after you reach menopause,” says Dr. Neuser. Sounds discouraging, but we’ve got skin care routine tips and tricks to get you through to the other side.
