CLEANSE "Exfoliation is key. It gets rid of the dead skin cells, which are very prevalent for women in this age bracket,” says Wexler. The Wexler Microexfoliation and Microdermabrasion System ($65 for both, bathandbodyworks.com)which Brinkley lovesshould be used in the shower to restore moisture and even hyper-pigmentation.
WEAR Wexler has a summertime don't for the over 50 set: Sunless tanner, which stains brown spots and creases. Opt instead for a washable body bronzer like Perfekt Body Perfection Gel ($48, perfektbeauty.com), which comes in four flattering colors.
REPAIR Mature skin gets blotchy and uneven in the summer months. Wexler recommends skin-lightening hydroquinone to even out irregular pigmentation. Be sure you select one with a 4% or less concentration like Obagi Nu Derm Blender ($82, obagi.com to find a doctor near you)otherwise the formulas can cause skin sensitivity, and may increase vulnerability to UV damage.Read MoreLess
