Your Skin After 60
And you thought your 50’s was tough on your skin. From your 60’s on, everything that changed with your skin over the last decade just continues to accelerate. Getting enough moisture into your skin becomes more of a challenge, yet more important.
In addition to the changes that you may have experienced in your 50’s like dry skin, increased fatty deposits, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), increased inflammation, continued thinning and sagging of the skin, poor circulation, and hair loss, you may notice:
Skin tags (or growths)
Mostly benign in nature (non-cancerous), these bumps sit on top of your face and body as excess skin. They are common skin growths that can be a nuisance because they’re typically more difficult to camouflage with cosmetics. LiveScience explains that “skin tags appear commonly, affecting about 45 percent of the population. They tend to happen more frequently among older people, women, the overweight and those with diabetes.”
