Unfortunately, the majority of ladies experience the most profound skin changes in their fifties, due to the rapidly decreasing oestrogen hormone. This results in the skin exhibiting lines and wrinkles, dull, dry skin and one that has lost its lustre. Facial laxity becomes more evident and also the results of long-term exposure to the elements throughout the years certainly doesn’t help.
The hair and nails grow more slowly and Langerhans cells (involved in the immune response) dwindle in number, thus decreasing the immune responsiveness of older skin. The decreasing size of sebaceous (oil) glands leads to dry and broken skin that is more susceptible to infection and, as oestrogen levels decrease the skin loses its plumpness and tone. The skin can become dry and sensitive and some ladies also experience acne type breakouts.
