Free yourself from time

Hormonal change, aging tissue… In ones fifties, new skin preoccupations come to mind. Why does the skin sags, is more sensitive or irritable? We tell you everything you need to know!

My skin after 50 years old

During menopause, the skin starts behaving differently, with several consequences on its aspect and its needs

Less collagen, less elastin

From 50 years old onwards, the skin produces less collagen and less elastin, mostly because of menopausal hormonal changes. The skin loses its elasticity, sags and lacks of tonicity.

Dry skin: a skin not oily enough

During ones fifties, the sebaceous glands produce less sebum, with 2 main consequences: 

  • The skin is drier
  • The skin is more sensitive and irritable. The organism is more exposed to environmental stressors (allergens, pollution, metal particles…), the sebum having a bactericidal action and acting as a “cement” between skin-cells

Skin dehydration: a skin not moist enough

After menopause, the body produces less hyaluronic acid. This carbohydrate acts as a reservoir for the skin, plumping it in the meantime.

Tip #1: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

As we have seen, skin aging amplifies epidermis dehydration, reducing the natural production of skin lipids in the meantime. Also, after 50 years old, it is necessary to:

  • Moisturize your skin daily
  • Restore lipid levels by applying essential fatty acids

Tip #2: Purify your skin from impurities

During the day, the skin acts as a barrier against impurities, whether they are produced from the body or come from the environment or the pollution. Mature skins being more sensitive and irritable, cleansing is essential to limit the skin reaction risk. However, it is also essential to use a gentle and non-aggressive micellar water which doesn’t dry the skin out.

Tip #3: Renforcer la barrière naturelle de votre peau

The skin protective film, called hydrolipidic film, contains a water layer and a lipid layer. When the skin is dry, meaning when it is not moist enough or oily enough, its “barrier” role fails to protect the skin, exposing the body to environmental stressors. It is wise, beyond our two first tips, to reinforce the “barrier” role of the skin by applying a protective cream
