Ladies: when you reach a certain age, your skin really isn't the same anymore

Some skin problems that can occur when middle age arrives include severe dryness, thinning and sagging, deep wrinkles, and acne. It's not uncommon to even find younger women who follow "preventative" skin care regimens in anticipation of their middle-aged years.

Expert dermatologists recommend using richer and more hydrating moisturizers and applying skin creams immediately after any cleansing to lock in moisture. As women enter menopause, skin can lose up to 30% of its collagen in five years, causing thin and sagging skin. To combat deep wrinkles and to keep skin looking supple, we recommend the Restoring Night Cream, a moisturizer with a unique olive oil emulsion system that hydrates and firms tired skin.

The change in the balance of androgen, a hormone that can affect the oil-producing glands, can cause an overproduction of acne-causing oil. Be sure to check that the ingredients in your skin care products don't include parabens, PEGS, phthalates, silicone, or mineral oil.
