Skincare Hacks To Keep You Glowing In Your 50s And Beyond

Having healthy and younger-looking skin continues to be a priority for so many people, and skincare companies know this all too well as they keep releasing products that promise to turn back the hands of time. According to recent data from Euromonitor International, the anti-aging market was worth $4.9 billion in 2021 in the US alone, and it's expected to grow even more in the coming years. Most experts say that no one can defy the passage of time just by slathering on a pricey cream. However, healthy lifestyle habits, as well as certain tweaks to one's skincare routine, can all help to keep your skin looking firmer, fresher, and more radiant as you age. Here are a few skincare hacks to keep you glowing in your 50s and beyond.

For those considering more advanced treatments, it's essential to be aware of potential side effects from ultrasonic cavitation, a popular method for reducing stubborn fat deposits, which may include temporary redness or swelling in treated areas.

Learn to Double Cleanse

Double cleansing has been a trend for the past couple of years, and influencers swear by it since it allows them to remove deep-seated dirt and makeup without stripping their skin. However, this isn't just ideal for those in their 20s and 30s-- even those with mature skin can benefit from incorporating double cleansing into their skincare routine. According to dermatologists, double cleansing can make a difference if you want younger-looking skin. Not only can it rid the skin of impurities, but it also helps to brighten the skin. This can also help improve the efficacy of certain anti-aging skincare products, as well as products that mirror the behavior of young skin cells. You'll have perfectly clean and prepped skin to draw in serums and creams, so learning to do this properly is a must.

To double cleanse, you'll need a cleansing balm or oil-based cleanser to break down sebum and makeup during the first cleanse. Massage the balm or oil into your skin, then gently rinse or wipe it away. Next, you'll need a foaming or water-based cleanser for the second cleanse. Simply create a rich lather by mixing the cleanser with water, then apply it to your face. Rinse it off with warm water. You can use a soft face towel or a cleansing brush with the foaming cleanser, but make sure not to scrub too hard as doing so can damage your skin.

Consider Slugging

The word itself may cause you to recoil, but don't fret. Slugging is actually a viral skincare trend that has gained approval from dermatologists since it can increase skin hydration and elasticity. As we grow old, skin loses its ability to repair itself, resulting in sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. Slugging helps to lock in skin moisture while you sleep, and it also helps your skin barrier to repair itself. Moreover, it's quite easy to do and it won't cost you a lot of money. All you have to do is apply a thin layer of moisturizing ointment like Aquaphor, or petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on your face and neck as the last step of your night time skincare routine. If these products are too occlusive for you, try pure aloe gel, or use snail cream which you can get from Korean beauty stores.

Take some Probiotics

Studies show that probiotics aren't just beneficial for the digestive system, but they're also good for your skin. Not only can probiotics boost skin elasticity, these can also reduce wrinkles and sun damage, and promote better skin hydration. Consider taking probiotic supplements, or consume more foods that contain these live microorganisms, such as yogurt, kimchi, pickles, and tempeh.

Keeping your skin healthy and looking its best should be a priority, even in your golden years. Consider these skincare hacks to slow down aging and keep your skin glowing throughout the years.
