How can a woman take care of her skin in her fifties?

First, don’t buy every product you see on pharmacy shelves. Using too many products or combination creams actually can irritate and redden your skin, making matters worse. You only need a moisturizer with SPF 30 during the day, and a mega-moisturizer at night. It doesn’t have to be expensive; just look for one that contains ceramides, which are natural elements of the skin that hold in moisture. They will increase radiance by temporarily plumping lines and boosting your glow. 

You may want to consider fillers, products a dermatologist injects into facial lines (such as the ones that show how much you’ve smiled your whole life), along the jaw line, and also in the cheeks to do the job of collagen and support the skin, minimizing the look of wrinkles. These nonsurgical treatments can last 6 to 12 months.
