It’s often said that we become more confident as we age, but if your skin’s not happy, it can be hard to feel your best. While aging is inevitable, there are thankfully a great variety of measures we can take to give our skin the best opportunities to look its best.
We know that the viability of our skin and other cells decline with age, which is why it’s important to adapt our skincare routines through the decades if we hope to maintain a youthful complexion; however, it’s not as complicated as we might believe, especially if one has maintained a relatively good regime through your 30’s and 40’s.
Understanding what your skin needs to perform optimally in your 50’s will help you achieve a smoother, plumper, more glowing look and a more confident you.
Back To The Basics
Hormonal changes play a huge part in the overall health and appearance of the skin – oestrogen helps to maintain the skin’s barrier function, so when a woman’s oestrogen level drops, so does her skin’s ability to retain water. This can lead to dry, dehydrated skin and loss of elasticity, exacerbated by the slowing of oil production as we age.
As a start, a consistent skincare routine is key:
- Exfoliating once a week helps to brighten and revitalise the skin by stimulating circulation, encouraging oxygen and nutrients to the skin surface and removing waste and dead skin cells (we recommend the Dermaviduals DMS® Peeling Cream, which is free from tensides and emulsifiers and cleanses without damaging the skin).
- Using moisturising products, such as a cream that will restore and build up your skin’s barrier, morning and night after cleansing is always recommended. Don’t forget about your Omega 3 supplements and SPF 30-50 during the daytime!
- In addition, applying a powerful, lightweight serum, such as hyaluronic acid under your favourite moisturiser will encourage the skin to absorb the concentrated nutrients in the serum more easily.
Going The Extra Mile
While a good self-care regime is absolutely vital, there are those who wish to take it a step further by investing in professional skin treatments – and thanks to the advanced technology available today, our team at DermaNuva is able to offer effective skin rejuvenation options for all skin types and concerns.
We believe that a long-term comprehensive skincare program involving the prevention and protection of healthy skin, treatment of imperfections, and maintenance strategies are paramount to ensure that your skin health and structure is optimized as you age.
Our aging skin treatment options include:
Our range of effective laser treatments includes Micropeel, Fractional Resurfacing and Rejuvenation.

In summary, ageing can’t be stopped, only slowed down. We all will get wrinkles at some point in time, but when we support the healthy function of our skin cells and focus on treating our skin holistically, we do much to halt the signs of age. Prevention and protection from an early age is key, but there is no time like the present to start.
