Shine through your sixties with these skincare tips
Your sixties are the decade of change, retirement has happened and grandchildren are likely just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to give up on your appearance!
Far from a time for letting it all go, your sixties are the excellent opportunity to really take care of yourself. In fact, now more than ever, proper diet, exercise and skin care will have a direct effect on how you feel and look on a daily basis.
Sigourney Weaver, Joanna Lumley, Jayne Seymour and Isabella Rossellini, all of these women are great examples of how to march into your sixties with your head held high and your skincare hopes higher!
Here are Medispa S10’s tips on how to sail through your sixties with style:
Light exercise is essential for women in their sixties as the benefits are phenomenal. Taking a brisk walk at least three times a week will not only benefit your health (lowering your risk of many cancers, strengthening your bones, reducing cardiovascular risk and improving joint function), it will also have a significant effect on your appearance.
Regular exercise promotes healthy circulation and maximises your oxygen intake, nourishing skin cells and carrying away damaging waste products like free radicals – basically cleansing your skin from the inside. It will also help you sleep better which can also have a beneficial effect on ageing.
Your skin will be noticeably drier and thinner and may even start to feel tighter and become flaky. If you have been using soap and water, stop. Use a gentle, non-drying cleanser then opt for a heavier, oil-based moisturiser to address dryness and protect your skin throughout the day. We have a bespoke selection of products available at Medispa S10.
The skin rejuvenation treatments that we recommended to women are effective at any age.
Botulinum toxin injections are suitable for many women in their sixties, but their efficacy depends very much on the quality of your neural junctions and muscle tone, but also skin tone and quality.
Dermal fillers are another effective treatment for skin that has suffered from the effects of gravity. Restoring fillers can lift the face, and filling in the gaps that appear underneath eye bags can disguise them significantly. Selecting appropriate dermal fillers can also restore and support thinning lips and correct deeper lines and wrinkles.
The severe wrinkles, skin laxity, age spots and textural irregularities that have begun to set in in your sixties can be treated with a procedure called laser resurfacing. It is quite an aggressive, ablative treatment that will, quite literally ‘resurface’ the skin. It involves the use of an intense burst of laser energy to remove the outermost layers of the skin in a precise and controlled way, and when performed by a qualified expert, can have an excellent effect on its overall condition.
If you are considering a non-surgical cosmetic procedure like any of those listed above, selecting a safe practitioner can be extremely challenging.
It is for this reason that we at Save Face have launched our multifaceted search engine so that you are able to connect with practitioners who have been vetted against strict standards for accreditation, Medispa S10 is Save Face accredited.
Your safety is of utmost importance to us – don’t put it unqualified hands.
