Doctor Oz did a segment on Anti-Aging advice for people in their 50’s. What should women in their 50’s avoid, buy and consider? By your 50’s, your kids are grown and out of your house, and women often start to think about themselves. You can still reverse some of the damage from over the years, it is not too late! In your 50’s, you lose estrogen, your pores become more prominent, expression lines remain on your face, spider veins and age spots appear, you dream of losing weight from your body but you lose it from your face instead. Dr. Susan Taylor joined Dr Oz and said that aging is normal, we just have to decide how we want age gracefully.
What to Avoid in Your 50’s: Combo Creams
Dr Taylor told Dr Oz that we should not buy into all of the hype and that we should avoid combo creams, which can cause redness and irritation. In fact, by using many products, the ingredients can actually negate each other. You need one in the morning with SPF 30 and one in the evening that is a bit stronger for combating skin problems.
What to Buy in Your 50’s: Ceramides & Mega Moisturizers
Dr Taylor said that we should look for mega moisturizers, which are creams that contain Ceramides, which help to improve your skin barrier protection and adds moisture to your skin.
What to Consider in Your 50’s: Fillers
Dr Taylor told Dr Oz that fillers are quick, easy and help replace and restructure your skin. In just 20 minutes, the dermatologist can make you look 10 years younger and it can last 6 months. When you get a filler treatment, the doctor first puts on a topical numbing medication and then an itsy bitsy needle is used to fill in the parentheses… but it does not hurt at all. Dr Taylor gave Fillers to a lady in Dr Oz’s audience before the show, and the “before” and “after” was really quite impressive!
