In Your 50s and Beyond
You have toiled away many summers in the sun but that doesn’t mean you should be lax in your skincare routine now. Continue to apply an SPF 30 everyday and avoid overexposure to the sun when possible. “Another easy prevention is to get behind the oversized sunglass trend and cover a lot of area around the eyes,” says Polis. Take note, areas of your body where skin is thinner are more vulnerable to damage and serious disease.
For mature skin, treatments like the Fraxel laser are also available. The laser addresses many skin issues including pigmentation, textural irregularities and wrinkling. For an added bonus, “It improves texture, tone and clarity of the skin and will also destroy any precancers it finds.”
