Antiaging from 50 – the best tips

With 50 plus in the middle of life! Here are the best anti-aging tips from 50 from the areas of nutrition, exercise, cosmetics and aesthetic medicine!

A winged word knows: “Aging is not for cowards” and indeed, the enumeration of the physical changes over the years could leave one’s courage. But don’t worry, in the meantime there are always new treatment methods of aesthetic medicine, innovative beauty products and lots of tips for the right diet and exercise. Antiaging from 50 – this is how it works:

Aging – a complex process

The slow physical degradation already begins in the mid-30s. This is reflected in an annual loss of muscle mass of about one percent. Although this is not noticeable in terms of strength for a long time, it leads to other problems, such as a reduced basal metabolic rate. In addition, our bones lose density and stability, making them more susceptible to fractures. Women over 50 in particular no longer produce much estrogen, a hormone that protects against bone loss or slows it down.

In addition, as we age, our blood vessels lose elasticity and narrow, resulting in poorer supply to all organs, including, of course, the skin. The skin shows fine lines or wrinkles that form due to the loss of substance in the subcutaneous fatty tissue area, a lower number of protein fibers, a reduced water content and thus reduced elasticity. Overall, it becomes drier and thinner. However, pigment spots, red veins or the general decrease in elasticity and sagging are also frequently complained of.

But there is all-clear. A cloverleaf of diet, exercise, cosmetics and aesthetic medicine can contribute to a good attitude to life even at this stage of life.

Antiaging from 50 – the best care routine

When it comes to anti-aging from 50, the skin needs special care. The care routine starts with the right cleansing and continues with special care products, peelings, moisturizers and suitable beauty tools. Since the skin is generally drier, more sensitive and thinner, very mild, ph-neutral cleansing products should be used.

Exfoliation is necessary, but should not be overdone. Chemical or physical peels may be used. The latter are advised to be used cautiously as they may cause microcracks in the skin surface. This can be followed by a moisturizing toner and rich skin care. With the care products it is important to pay attention to the right ingredients and their functions.

Preparation for aesthetic procedures

Hyaluronic acid with its plumping effect is a perennial topic, retinols improve fine wrinkles and pigment shifts, caffeine, cucumber or yeast extract work against puffiness and peptides get the collagen build-up going. Facial massagers for better blood circulation and muscle stimulation can be used to get a grip on skin structure and contour problems.

What Aesthetic Medicine Can Do

And if cosmetics need to be usefully supplemented, there are the numerous possibilities of aesthetic medicine. Botox injections against mimic wrinkles, plumping hyaluronic injections for gentle volume and contour treatments, thread lifts for skin tightening or autologous blood preparations to improve skin quality, to name just a few of the numerous options.

In addition, many minimally invasive procedures have now been developed for the body. In addition to fat-reducing technologies that use heat, cold, radiofrequency or ultrasound, innovative laser and plasma technologies are also on the market. They provide significant skin tightening and are used all over the body for contour optimization.

Minor surgical procedures to rejuvenate the eye area or mouth region often have a strong rejuvenating effect and are manageable both in terms of cost and downtime. Of course, those who want more dramatic effects can consider liposuction plus tightening or breast plumping and tightening at 50 plus. Thanks to gentler surgical and anesthetic methods, the stresses and risks have become manageable.

Antiaging from 50 – keep moving

“You snooze, you rust” is a well-known saying with a lot of truth in it. Regular exercise slows bone and muscle loss and improves blood circulation. Essentially, a balanced mix of muscle building, cardiovascular training, coordination and flexibility exercises should be integrated into everyday life. One-sided training often does more harm than good. Outdoor activities in all weathers are preferable to indoor training. Fresh air not only makes training more effective, but is also good for the skin and the entire respiratory system.

Various vegetables, herbs and fruits are power food pairs

Aging processes can be controlled by adequate availability of the right vital nutrients. For example, supplemental vitamin D can slow bone loss, and foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids have cardioprotective effects and help keep cholesterol and blood sugar levels in check. Fresh fruits and vegetables provide a good supply of vitamins and minerals. Since digestive capacity decreases with age, fruit is best enjoyed in the morning and salad at lunchtime. At dinner, on the other hand, protein-rich food is to be preferred. This nutritional concept should be flanked by sufficient drinking of 1.5 to 2 liters of water or unsweetened teas. Refined foods and foods rich in sugar or carbohydrates should be avoided as far as possible. Otherwise, the tendency to age-related fat storage will be further promoted.
