← Still in your 40s? Start by Creating the Best Skincare Routine for 40s Skin.
So you’re finally easing into your 50s, your 60s, or beyond.
Congratulations! You’ve earned some relaxation, and so has your skin.
Back in the day, you probably endured some not-so-skin-friendly practices in the name of beauty. Who hasn’t? But now it’s time to stop stressing your skin with heavy-duty, age-shaming products.
Instead, tweak your skincare routine to love, support, and celebrate your gracefully aging complexion. Using these tips as a guide, prioritize products that value the health of your skin and empower it to rejuvenate itself from within.
After all, healthy skin is beautiful skin!
Once you pass the age of 50, hydration should be one of your main skin priorities. Over time, your skin begins losing its structural integrity, including its ability to retain moisture.
This is one reason why aging skin tends to be on the dry side. Years of environmental damage from pollutants and UV radiation don’t help, and skincare products with mattifying or harsh chemical ingredients can make matters even worse.
Make sure that your routine has a strong focus on moisturization to help maintain your hydration and radiance.
Want the best results for your particular skin woes? Craft your routine to address them directly.
Sure, your sister-in-law may be able to sustain her perfect complexion with a single all-purpose moisturizer, but that approach won’t work for everybody (or most people, for that matter).
Everyone’s skin is unique, and only you know where yours needs extra help. So put your sister-in-law’s recommendations aside, identify the problem areas in your complexion, and target those issues with supportive skincare products.
Apart from being pleasant and relaxing, massages have various health and wellness benefits.
In particular, a facial massage may help strengthen and contour the muscles in your face for a fuller, more youthful appearance. It can also help reduce swelling and promote circulation, helping deliver vital nutrients to your skin.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that facial massage may even help reduce skin sagging, soften scar tissue, and give you an extra glow. While these effects are pending further study, it certainly can’t hurt to go ahead and give facial massages a try!
If you’re feeling fancy, professional massages are available at most spas. Or, if you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, you can perform your own facial massage right at home.
It’s no mystery that exercise is good for you at any age, impacting everything from your immune system to your mental acuity. But exercise isn’t just helpful for your general health — staying active can also play a role in the health and appearance of your skin.
Inside all of your cells are active little powerhouses known as mitochondria. When the mitochondria in your skin cells begin to slow down and malfunction, it can directly result in signs of aging like wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and greying hair. So anything you can do to keep your mitochondria functioning smoothly will have a positive impact on your skin.
One option? Exercise.
Exercise stimulates the mitochondria in your cells, helping keep them alert and ready to work. This, in turn, can prevent premature aging.
As one article very persuasively put it, exercise is one way of “stopping aging at the cellular level.”

Ultimately, it’s not about how you look, it’s about how you feel. Love the happy look of your laugh lines? Then flaunt them!
