Looking for solutions to those skincare problems you find yourself experiencing now you’ve reached midlife? I’m partnering with Olay anti-aging skincare Dr. Jeanine B. Downie to bring you answers and products that can help. Here’s a look at some top recommendations from a leading dermatologist.
1. Fine Lines and Wrinkles
According to Dr. Downie, Genetics, as well as a multitude of natural changes, contribute to the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. Fluctuations in hormone levels, particularly estrogen, can reduce collagen production in your skin. Cell regeneration and circulation also become sluggish as you age. Elastin decreases, and hyaluronic acid, a natural moisturizer in the skin, too declines. These changes compromise skin’s elasticity, firmness, structure, and moisture, thus contributing to areas of collapse and irregularity that ultimately manifest as fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Downie recommends using the Olay Professional Pro-X Intensive Wrinkle Protocol. It’s skincare set containing a 3-part daily professional regimen that is clinically proven to be as effective as the leading prescription brand. It’s also half the price when you include the cost of one dermatology visit.
External factors play a role too. The most obvious is UV exposure. I recommend applying sunscreen rain or shine, regardless of your ethnicity. Make sure you apply at least an SPF 30 with broad-spectrum coverage. Whether you start using it at 15, 60, or even 70, you’re still doing better than not using it at all. I suggest keeping your sunscreen by your toothpaste and deodorant, so you don’t forget to apply in the morning.”
2. Skin Tone Irregularities
A major cause of uneven skin tone is excessive sun exposure. Too much sun over the years means uneven skin tone in our 40’s and beyond.
To address existing skin tone damage, Dr. Downie recommends a chemical peel and using an anti-aging foundation that serves multiple purposes like COVERGIRL & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation. lt leaves behind flawless coverage and improves skin tone over time.
3. Midlife Acne
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, over half of the women in the U.S. between the ages of 25 and 58 have some form of acne. The following changes can contribute to clogged pores and breakouts: Slower skin turnover, hormonal fluctuations caused by menopause or stress, and a decrease in the skin’s elasticity.
For this, Dr. Downie recommends using the Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System. It’s clinically proven to cleanse 6X better than essential cleansing alone and gently exfoliates to help maximize the immediate hydrating effectiveness of anti-aging moisturizer usage.”
