You’re in your 50s now and if you have not been taking care of your skin, you are really starting to notice the signs of aging. Many of theskin changesyou mayhave experienced in your 30s and 40s are much more apparent in your 50s. Lines get deeper. Sagging gets worse. More brown spots, redness,and dry, dull skin appear.
The Mikel KristiCore Collection with ourRejuvenating Swipes is the perfect daily skincare regimen to handle all of your skincare needs in your 50s, or better yet, atanearlier age. If you began taking care of your skin with proper exfoliation, restoration,and protection at an earlier age, (preferably in your 20s) then your skin should be in great shape in your 50s. Ifyou’re like many people who didnot start using effective skincare in your younger years,then the Core Collection gives you everything you need to pull double duty for healthy skin. Thefollowing expertly crafted products have restorative, bio activeingredients, and are included in our Core Collection;
Protection is provided with ourC Radiance Moisturizer, Vital A Rejuvenating Serum, Biopeptide Revitalizing Serum and ourLavender Hibiscus Toner. As you can see, our products work synergistically to defy the visible signs of aging.
Sagging skin is probably the biggest concern for most 50 somethings. Sagging skin is the result of collagen disintegration and lack of natural collagen production. Your collagen needs to be encouraged to grow with the proper skin restoration ingredients, and with skin treatments. To nurture your skin, on a daily basis, use ingredients such as Retinaldehyde, Peptides, and Vitamin C, which are all found in theMikel Kristi Core Collection. Skin treatments such as BBL, lasers, microneedling, radiofrequency, and ultrasound can be great adjunctive treatments to your skin care regimen. You may also choose to do dermal fillers to restore the facial volume that has been diminished from bone and fat loss under the skin. For additional information about non-surgical facial treatments you can schedule a consultation at my medical practice, Skin Appeal Tucson, or visit the Skin Appeal websitehere.
Another concern in your 50s is skin cancer. Many pre-skin cancers (actinic keratoses), and all types of skin cancers, start to appear in this decade of life, especially if you grew up as an outdoor lover and did not use proper sun protection. Most of us are guilty of this because we just didn’t know any better. Remember to apply SPF with Zinc Oxide every morning to your face, neck, and chest. We loveElta MD SPF with Zinc. I also recommend seeing a general dermatologist on a yearly basis, for a full body skin screening, to diagnose and treat any suspicious lesions. A self-skin exam to look for new lesions or changing moles should be done AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH!
Aging gracefully and timeless beauty can be easily achieved with the right products, procedures, and knowledge. We’re here to help you look and feel your best in your skin.

Does Skin Type Matter?
In reality, everyone’s skin has the same anatomy, and therefore the same basic needs to keep skin young and healthy. So, knowing your skin type (oily, dry, or combination) really doesn’t matter when choosing skincare… as long as you meet these needs.
Any skincare product regimen should address these 3 basic needs:
We all want healthy, radiant, youthful skin. Many of us buy excessive amounts of skincare products looking for the magic, only to become disappointed when they don’t see the results we crave. I’ve been there myself and really it was that dissatisfaction with my own skin that led me into the field of cosmetic dermatology and aesthetics. I was a product whore in my late 20’s and yet my skin was still dry, dull, and discolored. The final straw was when wrinkles started appearing at age 30. What was I doing wrong? I had talked to a dermatologist, I had read every article in beauty magazines that I could, and I tried every over the counter product I could get my hands on, yet nothing seemed to give me the results I wanted. I did not understand the issue until I started my career in cosmetic dermatology.
