So we’ve reached the stage in our life where our skin isn’t as resilient as it once was. The days where we wore sundresses feeling like we didn’t need sunscreen and the nights where we’ve fallen asleep with our makeup on are over. Some of us may have been a little neglectful with our Skincare routine during our early years and need to start making amends now that we’re in our 50s. But that’s okay, making up for lost time isn’t actually as hard as you may think, and it is never too late to start. Here is an easy and practical skincare routine that’s tailor-made for our 50s.
What Happens To Our Skin at 50?
Our 50s is the decade our skin’s elasticity and radiance starts to experience a drastic change, which means our skincare routine should be able to cater to those changes. Here are the kind of aging skin changes we experience during this time of our life:
- Dryness and Dehydration
- Dark Spots or Age Spots
- Large Pores
If you haven’t been properly shielding yourself from sun damage during your earlier years, the effects will take form in dark spots, age spots, and wrinkles. During Menopause, your skin only produces a mere 30% of collagen during the first five years, reducing the elasticity of your skin and bringing on wrinkles. Your hormones and pH levels change, causing the moisture barrier of your skin to get weaker. This change will become most apparent in areas where your skin is thinner such as the eyes, lips and neck. The risk of acne returning also increases due to hormonal imbalance.
This was a long list of all the skin changes we experience at our 50s. Although these changes are completely natural and happen to all of us, there are ways to avoid, minimize or remove these effects. We have the best age-customized skin care routine to help you achieve healthy, younger-looking skin at 50.
The Best Skincare Routine to Reduce Signs of Aging
Build a skincare routine that can deal with the skin changes brought about by time. Restore the youthful appearance of healthy skin through these key ways to reduce signs of aging with our best Skincare product recommendations:
1. Use a Facial Cleanser
Begin your Skincare routine by washing your face with lukewarm water and massaging your face in gentle circular motions with a mild Facial Cleanser. Mastic Origins’ Facial Cleanser deeply cleanses clogged pores and hydrates the skin with its rich foam. It is proven to have high-antibacterial and antifungal properties from the natural and powerful combination of Mastic and organic Cannabis Oil. It also uses the astringent properties of Spinach, stimulating your skin to get ready for the next steps of your age-defying routine.
2. Apply Toner
Toning your skin helps in increasing the absorption of active ingredients and is a vital step to improve the overall effectiveness of this entire routine. Rejuvenate your skin with Mastic Origins’ Toning Lotion, a tonic face and neck lotion that contains organic ingredients that actively cleanses, moisturizes, soothes the skin and maintains its water balance.
Exfoliating your skin removes dead skin cells and helps in brightening dull complexion; However, this process may be tricky with older skin as it is more sensitive. Use a gentle yet effective exfoliation product like our Magic Roots Face Scrub, using grains of red soil from the Kokkinopilos forest from Mount Olympus, this Face Scrub is unique gel scrub for deep cleansing and exfoliation that leaves your skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.
4. Use a Peel-Off Mask
Apply a Hydrating and Firming Peel-off Mask, like our Pesto Mastiha Peel-Off Mask. It is a gentle, pure and organic cream that harnesses the rejuvenating properties of Buttersperm Butter, Aloe Extracts and Vitamin E which actively restore the skin’s water balance.
5. Treat Your Skin
To minimize the appearance of drooping skin, visible lines and pores, and eye bags caused by hormonal imbalance and the fluctuating production of Collagen, treat your skin with an Enhanced Anti-aging and Lifting Serum. Our Liftantique Drops is an active serum whose action is based on the complex of Olive Oil with Truffle and Mastic, these ingredients act in the deeper layers of the skin, binding free radicals, resulting in the prevention of skin relaxation that is the cause of wrinkles and skin aging. Its systematic use offers an immediate Lifting, while at the same time keeps the skin deeply hydrated. For more immediate results, it is perfectly combined with Liftantique cream.
Although dry skin does not necessarily cause wrinkles, it surely gives off the appearance of one having more wrinkles, so it is important to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized all throughout the day. Using moisturizers that provide tightening and lifting effects can help reduce the appearance of sagging skin. Our Energizing Cream provides 24-hour hydration due to its unique composition. It harnesses the ingredient called Spirulina, which has the effect on the peripheral circulation, increasing the oxygenation of the cells, as a result of which it tightens the skin and at the same time moisturizes it. The high content of vitamins moisturizes the skin while Jojoba essential oils soften the skin while maintaining its natural elasticity.
7. Care for your Eyes
They say that if you fall in love with a person’s eyes, then you’ll be in love forever, because eyes never change. Although there is some truth to that romantic quote, the skin surrounding the eyes surely does not get to experience the same timeless benefits. Lift the skin around your eyes and reduce the appearance of dark, puffy circles with our Magic Eyes Kit which comprises of the MythicEye Serum, MythicEye Cream, and the Eye Mastik. These quick-acting and anti-wrinkle eye skincare products effectively tighten, lift and illuminate tired-looking skin, restoring its natural glow.
8. Sun Protection
We all thought we could easily get away with sun damage during our early years, but all those years under the sun start to accumulate and its effects appear on the skin in the form of dark spots, age spots or wrinkles. Now that we’re in our 50s, it is crucial to protect our skin from the sun and its harmful UV rays to avoid worsening the effects of sun damage. Use sun protection products with at least SPF 30, wear sun protective clothing, and stay hydrated throughout the day.
