Reaching the big 5-0 is fabulous! You’ve finally come into your own, and your confidence is soaring to new heights. But just as you’re feeling more comfortable in your skin than ever before, your skin throws you a curveball. Changing hormones, menopause and advancing years all affect skin’s appearance and function. Suddenly, the holy grail products you’ve relied on for years no longer seem to work. While this might be discouraging, a few tweaks to your skincare routine will help you get your glow back in no time.


1. Keep slathering on the sunscreen

It’s not exactly news at this point, but nothing damages the skin quite like sun exposure. It’s the leading cause of every gripe that comes hand in hand with aging skin, including wrinkles, brown spots, and even skin cancer. Select a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 40 and blocks both UVA and UVB rays, and reapply throughout the day as needed. Top tip: don’t forget your hands and neck. Both give away your age, no matter how youthful your face looks.
