Seniors and Skin Care

November 21, 2017

Skin care is often underestimated; however, as our largest organ, we should take proper care of our skin. 

 

Seniors need to keep their skin clean, but it is not necessary to wash it every day. Washing too frequently might make the skin drier. Make sure sensitive areas, such as the armpits, are kept clean as sweat might accumulate. Warm water is the best temperature to bath in while alternating days. Keeping trimmed nails may also help to avoid self-inflicting scratches. 

 

A good moisturizing cream should be applied to the arms, face, and neck several times a day. The most effective creams will contain aloe, vitamin A, vitamin E, cucumber extract, and natural antioxidants. It's also important to protect the skin from the sun. Using sunblock that is SPF 30 or higher is recommended as well as using protective clothing if working out in the sun for too long. 

 

Besides keeping the skin clean and hydrated, maintaining a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding smoking are crucial to healthy skin.
