Anti-aging Skin Care in your 50s

Problem: Sagging skin

A neck lift removes excess skin, or "turkey wattle," firming the area. But if a 2-week recovery, not to mention the surgical risks involved and the huge price tag, isn't exactly what you had in mind, you still have alternatives that are less invasive and less costly, yet more subtle. Like using a combination of retinoids, AHAs, and antioxidants on the neck. These treatments can help smooth out some of the fine lines on the surface, fade brown spots, and improve skin tone, all of which help give the neck a younger look.

If you want more-dramatic and faster results, ask your dermatologist about lasers. Nonablative laser treatments can be used to tighten the muscles in the neck area, which may help give it a firmer appearance, too.

Problem: Age spots

Like the skin on your neck, the skin on the hands and chest tends to be thinner and more delicate than that on the rest of your body. For hands, a year­round lotion with sunscreen and ingredients such as retinol and AHAs is a good choice. To fade minor age spots, try a bleaching cream that contains hydroquinone.

Darker spots may call for professional help. A dermatologist could prescribe a potent bleaching agent combined with a retinoid or a cream containing vitamin C and AHAs.

Problem: Thinning lips; turned down mouth

While your lips do lose moisture and collagen over time, there is hope: Primers and balms containing ingredients like menthol and vitamin C, supposedly make lips look more luscious. There are no studies showing whether these products really work, but they may provide a subtle, temporary benefit.

The color and texture of your lipstick can also fatten a skimpy mouth. Glossy or creamy colors in light to medium shades always make your lips look fuller. Choose subtle brownbased hues, like pinky-brown or reddish brown. For definition, line lips after applying lipstick or gloss with a pencil that matches your lips exactly.

As for that grumpy look, blame gravity. Around the late 40s or early 50s, there is a noticeable loss of volume or fullness in the cheek area. This tends to make the nasolabial folds (the creases that run from the edges of your nose to the corners of your mouth) look deeper and more pronounced. The only way to significantly minimize these folds is with injections of a soft-tissue filler, like Restylane.
