The Smooth Skin Hormone

While often thought of as an exclusively female hormone, estrogen is an important factor when considering a skin care routine for men and women over 50.

With the drop-off in estrogen production that naturally occurs as you age, your skin becomes dry and is irritated more easily. It loses its resilience and youthful appearance.

At this stage, you should consider restocking your bathroom shelves with products that reflect these changing conditions.


Products That Should Be in the Skin Care Routine for Men and Women Over 50

Slow down aging with skin care products

Products containing retinol or retinoids aid the production of collagen and elastin. These are fibrous proteins that help form the connective tissues of the body. Not only skin but also blood vessels, cartilage, tendons and muscles. They can help your skin regain strength and elasticity lost from aging, sun exposure and injuries.

A moisturizing agent that contains oils and ceramides to replenish your skin's natural lipid barrier should be the next item on your shelves. The lipid barrier is responsible for maintaining hydration, skin softness and firmness. It's essential for strong, healthy skin.

Enzymes to repair DNA are an important aid to skin repair for both men and women. As you age, more and more DNA damage occurs and leads to aging skin. This can be repaired by adding topical enzymes back into the skin.


Skin cell stimulating growth factors have been shown to have a dramatic effect in the reduction of wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and mouth. Ask your dermatologist for a recommended product.

Skin Care for Men Over 50

Male Skin Care

Unheard of once upon a time, skin care has gradually become an issue that resonates with men more and more.

And, of course, is even more important for men over the age of 50, as your skin starts to deteriorate.

It's important for men to be reminded that it's their skin that is their largest organ and so it deserves some care and attention. Your skin's chief enemies are wrinkles, blemishes, ugly pigmentation, sagging and roughness. These can ruin the way you look and lower your chances with the opposite sex.

Fortunately, these can be helped by diet and lifestyle changes, such as those covered in Anti-Aging Exercises and Healthy Heart Diet Foods List and also by the judicious use of skin care products.

There are a lot of products available specifically for mature and aging skin. They are ideal as a skin care routine for men and women over 50. Opt for mild cleansing products and intensive, vitamin enriched moisturizers to keep your skin well-hydrated and supple. Exfoliate at least twice a week to get rid of dead skin and to unclog pores. Since pores on the skin, especially on the face, get bigger with age, it becomes all the more important to scrub regularly to let it breathe.
