In your 40s, 50s and beyond, your skin thins and the production of collagen and elastin keeps dropping, so your skin becomes more sensitive. There is also a much greater slowdown in oil production and cell turnover, resulting in dryness and skin sagging.

The best topical ingredients are those formulated to repair DNA damage, increase collagen production, improve elasticity, fade unwanted pigmentation, and thicken skin. Retinoid or retinol creams will help increase collagen synthesis, improving skin elasticity and decreasing fine lines. Hyaluronic acid is another skin hydrator that binds water and keeps skin looking dewy and young.

Skin in your 50s

After menopause about 30% of your skin’s collagen is lost, leaving skin thinner and less firm. There is also a much greater slowdown in oil production and cell turnover. The two most common skin issues that women in their 50s face are: dryness and sagging.
